Not too long ago about maybe 6 weeks ago i was sitting at a red light to the far right lane and i hear a Harley come to the light but he's in the far left lane and a car in the middle lane so i couldn't get a look at what kind it was. So when the light turns green i start to take off from the red light and as much speed as i was going he made sure he was going faster because every time i would increase speed he would go even faster. We stopped at the next red light and I can look over but can't tell what kind only i know it had the hard plastic saddle bags and floor boards. So when the light turned green i gunned it and so did he but by the time i hit 3rd gear i looked over and we weren't side by side i had to look back and i was way way far ahead of him maybe 7 or 8 bikes lengths ahead. I took the next turn off to the right and had a big grin on my face. It's nice to have the Warrior. He probably thought he had me no problem cause he rides a "Harley" that was "PRICELESS"

See, I love that.


Around here, there arent many stoplights and the chances of catching another bike at one are tiny!

Nope, not the head pinching type, run over him, maybe, or just make fun of him cause his JAP CRAP got beat by some BRIT SHlT. And the only reason that you had me til 2nd, I wasn't real sure that you were trying, that and nailing this thing from a dead stop, just results in wheelies. Shifting into second gets some air too, just like Saturday night. Haha, you got beat by an ol' cripple dude on a british bike.

well it wasnt a bike, but a lexus is250. i was minding my oun business riding down this desolate part of rt. 18 in nj. i'm in the slow lane doing about 75. next thing i know here is this lexus making his car buck, so i give him a look. he waves at me to go and he procides to gun it. so i wait for about 2 seconds and then down shift into fourth. lets just say he now knows better than to f**k with a warrior. dont know what he was thinking, asshat.

I like to ride PCH, Newport Beach to Laguna Beach just cruising around. This high dollar custom bike comes blasting thru you could tell he thought he was all that reving and spliting lanes. So I got out of cruising mode and proceded to follow. Finally got to a signal were we each were lined up, when that light went green it was on! I lite up the Warrior smoken tire and shiften gears, that $40,000 or so bike was spanked! Nothing wrong with a custom bike some times they are just meant to cruise.

I went cruising with a Wean Streak today.


We werent racing much cause he already learned that lesson. He did pull by me one time and stayed on it. We were doing about 80 and he just wanted to open up, I hung back a bit and gave him room then just kept up. He hit about 110 and started to lean over his tank. I noticed I still had some throttle left but it made me wonder if he was opened all the way and maxed out at 115 or so. I know the WeanStreaks are heavy and technically smaller but do they max that soon?


Could be he was going fast enough but he just started to tuck when we stopped progression. It was like he hit the end and tucked to see if he could squeeze out another couple mph...

I hear that!


Around here the roads are spread out a bit. No freeway. Very few stoplights.


There is a kid in town that rides a Harley with apes on it. He went to HighSchool with my little brother, I know him from around. He rides HARD. Him and I have yet to meet up but when we do, that will be a good day.....hopefully. Would hate to have an ape hangin Harley beat me. lol

Went on a nice ride this past Sunday, from Phoenix to Payson/Pine, and back. Beautiful weather the whole day -- 70s and 80s the whole way. It's a nice ride, with some wide open highway straight-aways, a few sections of mountain twisties and a couple thousand feet of elevation change. 100 miles each way. Went with a couple guys from work -- one on an R1 and the other on an R6. Tons of fun. I know that either of those bikes couldsmoke meunder the right conditions, but I held my own withno problem. They had me easily on top speed, but we kept up with each other nicely. Got the Warrior up to about 120 or 125 -- just short of red-line, on a nice wide open stretch where we were all on our own.


One thing I noticed, when following the R6 through one section of twisties.... those thingsshimmey and slidearound when taking turns at high speeds, if the road surface is just a little bit uneven or bumpy. He had to really ride it to keep his line. Whereas, my big ol' Warrior (about 300 lbs heavier) sticks to the surface so nicely and just powers through anything in its way. I really love my bike. I just wish it didn't give me such aches in my back and legs on the longer rides. I'm keepin' her though...

Definitely, BJ. My dad lives in Payson, so I head up there somewhat routinely. Heading up there again this weekend, in fact. But only to help him move a bunch of furniture... if you wanted to help...
Just kidding.


Anyway, would be cool to meet up sometime. Weather is getting really nice down in the Valley these days. Gettin' ready for a good riding season here...

Let me guess it is in the 60s... I hate you AZ boys
I have some team members who work in Chandler. I used to get down there a lot for work, but since the bottom line is a little thinner these days and so is the travel budget...
