    CBR1000 vs. Fireworks Rocket vs. Golf ball

    This is lifted from Autoblog.com:

    The actual site with the video

    We're not fans of the term "crotch rocket" in general when referring to motorcycles, but in the case of the video embedded after the break, it clearly applies. The sportbike in question is a previous-generation Honda Fireblade (that's a CBR1000RR here in the States) and it's being ridden by Richard Hammond of Top Gear fame. In this case, though, Hammond is presenting for a popular British show called Brainiac.

    Going up against Hammond's Fireblade in a race to the finish line is a rather large rocket lifted straight from a fireworks bin and a golf ball hit by a crew member. The winner? You'll just have to follow the jump to find out. Be sure to stick around to the end for the best quote of the video.

    Where is that thread about how fast can you go, again....?
