'Busa rider/Nancy-boy?

On my way home today, I was doing 90 or so on the interstate with little traffic and came up behind what looked like a sportbike. The guy was wearing a backpack. As I got closer, I could see two very large mufflers. I thought to myself, "Hmm. Looks like a big one." I then saw his left foot twitch, as he shifted down, so I went down two gears on my old VF1000R and nailed it.

I put slip-ons on it a few weeks ago, so it's a little loudish, and did an airbox mod, otherwise it's stock. The guy gassed it, and I was waiting for him to flash by me just like the other guy on the Hayabusa did when I rode with one this summer.

But a couple of seconds later I checked my mirror and he was SLOWING DOWN! What was wrong with this guy, I asked myself. Here are four possible reasons I came up with:

1. It's a brand new bike, not broken in and he didn't want to rev it. It didn't have a temporary tag on it, and he could've dusted me without even getting above the break-in revs. Hmmm.

2. He was so positive he could smoke me that he didn't want to waste the gas. I don't know if that's possible in a male who still has testosterone racing through his system. If he were a eunich, why would he have a 'Busa in the first place?

3. My loud pipes buffaloed him into thinking that I had a highly modified ride, and he didn't want to take the chance of being humiliated. If he knew anything about bikes, he'd know that the only VF1000R that could ever beat him (maybe) would be one of the original factory race bikes.

4. He was a nancy-boy.

What do you think?

BTW, I ran it up to an indicated 145 before I shut it down. So fun it can't be legal. (Yes, I know that is no great feat for you 'Busa riders, but it's fun for a measly '80s ride.)

Motorcycles are cheaper than therapy.

Maybe he had a radar detector that was going off and figured he'd let YOU go to jail.

Suck mean people!

I have a radar detector, and I don't want to go to jail. I guess we should all just ride our sportbikes well within the law so as to not risk getting caught doing anything wrong.

'Course there's all that fun that won't be had, but we'll feel all better about it since we're all politically correct.

Right.

I think he just waiting for a real race. Hehe.
When you have one of the bad boys everyone wants to race and its kind of nice to know you can just cruise along while everyone else is sitting there and saying damn thats a hell of a machine.

Maybe the exhaust cloud from your bike blinded him and he slowed down 'cause he couldn't see the road ahead of him.

Or maybe he slowed down because he needed to stop to change his pants 'cause he pissed himself laughing!!!
