06 Ferrari F430 Spider is fast.....but

I was a little faster. Cruised to Newport Beach yesterday afternoon and on my way to get on the freeway a nice new F430 Spider pulls next to me. We both took the light and had a nice loop onto the freeway. He stayed close behind on the turn but once we hit the freeway.. I rolled the throttle as easy as I can to keep the front end down but was barely able to as the Ferrari pulled along side. we were pretty much neck and neck but I was able to pull away just a hair perhaps a couple bike leads. I slowed after 150mph due to fFAST appoaching traffic and he kept going swerving between cars. That car in incredible to see up close, hear its engine screaming next to my stock pipe and yeah I'd definetly sell my bike and soul to have that car!!

I had a similar experience with a Dodge Viper (Not nearly as cool as the Ferrari) but it was fast. We raced at three different lights to about 100 MPH then hit the interstate. On the take off the car didn't have a chance I was wheeling past him every time. I let him take off then hit it and toyed with him. Then off the the interstate I was in front of him on the on ramp and let him pass he was on it hard with a clear lane so I pulled in behind him and passed him at about 100 and let off at an indicated 180 thinking I left him for dead. Then about 4 seconds after I let off he blew by me only to catch up to traffic I didn't have a chance to pass again. The car was much faster than I thought it would be on the top end. I know if he had a wide open road he would get it up to 190 or so and leave me but it take cars so long to get there.
