I've lost a handful of times, but - never on the street. I took most all my bikes to test and tune nights at the drag strip, just for fun. I got absolutely obliterated about 4 times on a friends 1000rr, against a 69 camaro with slicks (and lord knows what under the hood). I also managed to lose on the f4i to a turbo'd maserati. But on the street, I haven't managed to find anyone willing to beat me into submission.
I did have one scare the ever loving shit out of me though, I was taking a decently long trip (110~ miles) to see a girl I used to go to school with, I was on a long, long empty stretch of interstate, and passed the only thing in site, an 18 wheeler. I'm pretty curiosu so as I was passing I looked up at the guy, and he nodded and I nodded back, and he did the "twist the wrist" motion, and shoved his hand from the back of his cab forward, which I took to mean "go real fast!", so I gave him a thumbs up and slowed down (we were going about 80 at the time), I slowed down to about 40, geared all the way down, tucked up under the wind screen, and pinned it, shot past him about 160, sat up, and slowed down, I was coasting at about 130, when I heard this noise like a jet was about to land on top of me, i was turning to look behind me when this 18 wheeler goes rocketing past me, black smoke pouring out of the stacks, and the turbo screaming so loud it made my head hurt, and once he passed me, the black smoke stopped and he coasted back down, but he passed me when I was coasting at 130, at a very, very good clip - I had no idea those things could go that fast (I assume he was unloaded, the trailer must have been empty), but - hell, I felt like I needed to pay him some tuition, cause he had just taken me to school.
