Owning a sports bike does give you one super power, you feel like you are the fastest guy on the road.
In truth, your bike is fast, I mean really fast! The dynamics behind a motorcycle are nothing like those in a car if you are not driving a Lambo, that is. On the highway, a sports bike is virtually a bullet; one second you can see him in the mirror, a small insignificant object, the next thing you know; it is past you and the rider laughing at your bewildered look in his mirror!
Sports bikes are built for speed. You cannot ride one slowly at a leisurely pace considering the amount of power driving it forward. If I had a racing bike, I would probably ride at the same pace. Riding the bike is like getting a license to drive a Ferrari without the hassle of worrying about violating speed limits. It is, therefore, no surprise that most bikers think old cars are old museums on wheels! This is probably the reason why bikers are so convinced that all it takes to unleash the beast is merely rotating the handle and fly!
Today, I have a cautionary tale for bikers. If you are ready to hear it, let me start with a warning. If you come across a black 57 Chevy Bel Air, please do not show off! There is a possibility that it is one of the Evil Twins. Who are they? Well, they are two 3,000hp Bel Air Chevies built by Lutz, a father and son team.
The Lutz are professional dragsters who seem to have finally come upon the definition of the word “fast.” Their creations, clad in granny vehicle attire, cover a quarter of a mile in a mere 6.7 seconds, hitting the 200 plus mph mark by the time they get to the finish line. Who rules the road now?
This is no joke! You can see how fast one of the Evil Twins shoots from the gas station. Now, imagine the frustration when you realize the blur you saw on the 57 Chevy Bel Air as it catapulted ahead of you says “Sweet, Smooth, and Sassy,” when it finally slows down for you. That will tear you to small pieces!
