Since I've been getting up the noses of Corvette fanboys in the recent past I thought I'd do the decent thing and indulge them some more by making this. Comment at will, it never gets old laughing at you lot.
NOTE TO CORVETTE FANS (NOT FANBOYS): This video isn't meant for you. There's no harm in liking the Corvette, this is for the clinically obsessed who see them as the absolute be all and end all of perfection and will not concede or accept any fair or valid point against the car.

2012 Corvette ZR1 Takes on Nurburgring
New 2012 models eclipse previous-best lap times at Germany's famed testing
Corvette returned to the world's most-demanding testing ground -- Germany's
famed Nurburgring -- and recorded lap times that rank among the fastest
recorded for a production car.
As detailed on video, the 2012 Corvette ZR1 recorded a lap time of 7:19.63,
more than six seconds faster than
the previous Corvette-best recorded in 2008. A lap video featuring the
Corvette Z06 will be released soon.
"Testing at the Nurburgring is one of the important methods we have to
validate our car in the toughest track conditions." says Tadge Juechter,
Corvette vehicle line director and chief engineer.
Measuring 12.9 miles (20.8 km) and including some 154 turns, the
Nurburgring's Nordschleife ("north loop") is widely considered the world's
most-demanding course. As was the case at Corvette's last test in 2008, the
car was driven by Corvette engineer Jim Mero and was a full production
model with no performance modifications. This test was to validate the
car's added performance technology coming to production later this summer
for the 2012 model year.
Corvette's improved performance for 2012 begins with the new, optional
Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires, which are available on
the two highest-performing models, the lightweight, 505-hp (377 kW) Z06 and
the maximum-performance, 638-hp (476 kW) supercharged ZR1. They are
competition-oriented tires, optimized for warm, dry conditions to increase
cornering and handling capability.
When combined with the Corvette's exclusive Performance Traction Management
(PTM) technology -- which manages torque delivery for maximum performance
-- the tires set new benchmarks for Corvette performance. Engineers
estimate an 8-percent gain in maximum lateral acceleration, to more than
1.1g, and improved braking distance.

Cop almost hits biker and pulls him over
skip from 1:10-3:10 hes just running my license. I was riding straight in
my own lane and this cop swerved into my lane, and came within 6 inches
from hitting my front tire. He claimed I was weaving in and out of traffic
which is a bunch of bs. He was not in a squad car so he called in the
biker cops to pull me over. I did NOT get a ticket.
