There was about 30 supercars of different vintages rolling by. Probably around 10 million dollars worth.

So the average value was about $330,000 per car?

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Or pretty close. Most where farraris that where less than 5 years old. Several of the italia, testarossa, california, could have sworn a Dino.

Masserattis, porches, an acrua nsx... 10 million might be an overguesstamit but probably not by too much. (generally speaking.)

I didn't but I did race AMA (not that it matters). I do know what that bike will do and I'll ride circles around it on a sport bike. It has nothing to do with his skills as a rider. That bike has specific capability's and you can't push it beyond what it can do. I have no doubt that if he's a good rider he can run circles around a less capible rider on a sport bike but if you put someone with equal skill on both bikes it won't be a contest. Pretty simple.

come on now, you know car tires are all the rage in professional motorcycle racing. It is what all the Isle of Man racers run

So I'm going to say he probably came in hotter than he could handle, and instead of leaning it over more and pulling through the curve, he panicked. You go where you're looking....poor Corvette.

What prompted my original statement and what I don't understand is the deification of someone who has some skills and rides a bike that is not usually ridden fast, faster than riders who have less skill than him (BFD). If you think he's such a good rider, put him on a racetrack and see how fast he really is instead of public roads.
