So my early morning Sunday ride turned into a showdown with a modified Porsche GT2

So Friday evening I spent several hours reading some ride blogs from my area and found a ride that I thought would tickle my fancy. So Saturday comes I wake up early and get ready for the day and all that fun stuff. Starting getting my gear ready and this girl I have been umm "hanging out" with calls me and has a flat tire, so I have to go take care of that.

I don't get out on the bike until the afternoon and there was a lot of cars on the road but it was still an awesome ride just couldn't really get my lean on. My only plans for Sunday were football so I decided to head out at 7:30 or 8 and beat Sunday traffic. I get off the highway and get to the area where the ride really starts a pretty high dollar area. I am riding along and feeling pretty good, finally got my new tires broken in and was no longer nervous about leaning low with them.

Get into the back roads about maybe 10-20 miles and this nice ass GT2 comes hauling ass up on me. At first I didn't think much of it. I was sort of dillydallying and didn't pay much mind to it until he HAULS ASS past me. I kick it down and get back behind him. We get into a real twisty section and I am having a real hard time keeping up with him. He was GOOD. Get out of the real twisty section into more of a sweeping area and I get out in front of him put some car lengths on him. We get into another twisty section and the bike and I were really in sync at this point and I manage to keep a good lead on him. This goes on for around 20-30ish miles. It was the most fun I have had for a long time. The whole area was real wide open and you could see all the way through every single turn and there was NO cars on the road. We pull off and chat a bit. Apparently the car has a lot of weight reduction, motor work, brakes, and basically full suspension. It was a beautiful ass car. Apparently he had a GT3 as well and a few bikes. Must be nice. We both went along our merry ways and I had a much more chill 100 or so miles and got home and got my football on. Sorry I ranted I am hyper and just out of the gym. All events took place in Mexico.

Unfortunately no pics or vids. Didn't plan on this happening. I planned on some "spirited" riding so I was in full leathers with back, chest, and thigh/hip/butt armor.

No I hear you. I am a pretty strong advocate of no gear no ride. I had a friend who just went down a few weeks ago and has road rash all over his body. He always made fun of me for riding in full gear. I said sooner or later, you'll see. He even had to get a skin graph. There certainly are way to many dudes in flip flops, shorts, and a full face. At least there dome is semi protected.
