You sir, are walking a VERY dangerous line with statements like this.

When I was into motorcycles, I heard this all the time at the track. "Well, this bike isnt outside my skill range, I can handle it." Those people, despite what they said, couldnt handle it. You know the term for those people around the track? Organ donors.

Bottom line here is youre NEVER in complete control. I dont care what youre driving, hence the entire point of this thread. Higher HP=things go wrong in a bigger hurry. There are far too many variables outside your control. In my experience, the people who got comfortable behind the wheel and started making statements like "I can handle it" found themselves badly injured or dead pretty quickly.
