Sunday morning around 11:30, I was cruising to work, when I came upon my victim. Chromed out, very loud, Harley, driving like a maniac. I thought to myself- “Hmmm, this looks like a good opportunity to test the Beast for the first time.” I don’t usually drive crazy, so I had to wait for him to catch a light. When he did, I pulled next to him, said the usual greetings, and admired his bike. It was beautiful, chromed out, possibly a Heritage soft tail, with springer front(this guy put some money into his bike). We were a few vehicles back, so I knew this was not the time. The light turned, and there goes the crazy Harley guy, trying to show me how bada$$ his bike is, cutting in and out of traffic. I let him go, until the next light. I pulled next to him again, and he said “So what kind of bike is that?” I told him Yam- Warrior, and he said “That’s OK I guess”, I said “I guess”. Once again, we were behind cars. The light turned, and he takes off again, cutting through traffic. This time it cleared pretty quickly for me. By the time it was clear for me to take off, he had about 10 bikes on me, and he was slamming the throttle. I twistedit, and started making ground on him (very quickly). By the time I was on the top of my fourth gear, I was passing him, hit fifth, and was gone. Well at the next light, I had to wait. He pulled up, two lanes over, and yelled “my bike is heavy, like a led sled” (excuses-excuses), then he said “I’m still tuning it”, “I need a different map”. Three excuses in 10 seconds. All I could do is laugh. Well while I was looking at him and laughing, the light turned green. (this time we were both in front). He took off first. I stomped it, rear tire screaming, bike sliding sideways (it had to be the coolest looking take off I’ve have ever done), shifted into second, and left him like he was standing still. Chalk another one up for the Warriors. I beat him twice, once from a rolling start, and once off the line. I am so proud of my baby, I had a smile on my face the whole day. I guess the $30,000(or so)he has into his shiny Harley, cant hold a prayer against an almost stock Warrior.
