When my F4 was not a track bike yet, I once rode on the sweeping road I know very well.
One of the oncoming cars was a bright yellow Porsche 996 Turbo. With yellow wheels. And ''Redhot'' on the plates.

I HAD to turn around to see what it has to show.

I catched him sooner than I thought - he was stuck behind slow car going trough small village. I sticked on his tail and waited till the end of the village.

We accelerated to some 120-150 km/h on a straight part of the road, I was behind him. Then we slowed down because of some houses by the road.
And then all hell broke loose. As soon as there were no more houses I saw the Porsche pressed down at the back - he threw 2 or 3 gears down and went full throttle, so did I.
We entered a sweeping road and going well north of 150 km/h, knee down on almost every corner. After some corners we catched a few cars. He prepared well for the overtaking maneuver. Porsche was screaming and there was the 1st time I put in the 1st gear during ride and speed wasn't low. We blasted by the cars, high speeds restored.
Once again we went through some small village very slow, by the speed limits actually.

After that the road opened up with very very long curves and than a nice straight stretch of road; full throttle again. I read 231 km/h and after that we were still accelerating for a few seconds. He said that he saw 269 km/h on the clock. On the 2 lane B road, middle of the day.

One of the best memories on the F4. I could keep up with him, and that Turbo had 550 HP (I spoke to the owner sometime after that)!!

Thank you hes! Every time someone posts up this kind of video or brags about doing it themselves, it really upsets me. Don't misunderstand, I've done some reallllllllly stupid things on the road in the past, but in hindsight, I was blessed by God that I didn't kill myself or someone else.
