The Blue Knights had a toy run and poker run today. One of the local PD guys had a 2006 VTX 1800 and was saying he hasn't found a bike yet that can beat him. I walked up to him with a Sh&t eatin grin on my face and asked if he wanted to race. He had a "uh" look on his face. Well Later on that day we finally got an open streach of road. I gunned it and he gunned it. I moved ahead by about 1/2 a bike. The second run was pretty much even. Not bad for a stock warrior with only 1000 miles in it. Let me get my mods done and some more miles on the bike and I don't believe I will have a problem with him anymore. He only had Hard Crome exhaust and a hypercharger on his bike.

Thats awesome, I love racing stories.


Its cool that a stock Warrior holds its own against a Slightly modded VTX....I know my warrior wouldnt have a problem with one but it gives the guys who havent been bitten yet the upper hand.


Thanks for sharing, the only guy I have ever raced from the local PD was on one of the sluggish Raiders. lol


I know, he would have done better on a straighter road. lol

did you say you were street racing with the local po po ???? try speed shifting next time and watch him get smaller and smaller in your rear view mirror

The real challenge...


Race an Off duty Copper and then NOT get a ticket the next time he sees you ride by while he is ON duty.

I had an 1800 and Busa (club brothers) pull up next to me on the way home from a bike night. The 1800 started pre-staging so it was on. I had the wife on the back and pulled the front end up when I hit 2nd. The Busa caught me at about 70 and at the next light was yellin that he didn't think I was gonna launch like "that". When the 1800 caught up, at the next light, his Bro' was laughing at him cause I beat him with a passenger. I love that stuff (and if I didn't race him my wife would have been disappointed.)
