Raider killed a Vrod

I know this isnt a Diesel on a ricer or a Ford vs Chevy or Ford Vs Dodge but I have to share.

For you DFW guys I was on the stretch of Collins In Arlington by River Legacy Park headed North past the dump.

From the light at Collins and Green Oaks headed north a guy in a Vrod was to my left, he was an older guy, mid to late 50's. I didnt start out like I was going to run him but he flipped me the bird right as we took off and was nailing it.

He had 5-6 bike lenghts on me when I hit second. Second pulls so hard on my Raider I caught and passed him by the time I hit third. In third I pulled on him at least 6 lenghts until we backed out. MPH wont be mentioned here but those of you that ride can figure it out.

At the next light he wouldnt even look at me

Yep, 1900 135 CI I looked at the Vrod, for 15k less and faster, The Raider was a better deal
