R1 vs Merc

Instant fail....he was riding an R1! :D
 
It's says 299 on the R1 clock, for some reason something is quite not right as looks slower.

180 odd mph doesnt look that quick on film, there again Id much rather do 200mph on my Busa than in the 996 :eek:

It looked PD quick to me + at 13.5k in 6th gear it sounded about right too.
 
Granted all the above, however, and quite a long time ago when I was allowed a bike, at 150MPH plus, the scenery became a blur and roadside furniture seemed to go past a lot quicker than that of the film. As for the noise, at that speed things seemed a lot quieter too, maybe the helmet.
