BMW M6 against K1200S against golf ball
This is a race that I'm sure will turn up on YouTube.

They raced three times, a BMW M6 car, a BMW K1200S motorcycle and a golf ball hit by PGA pro Stewart Cink. The golf ball won, but apparently the race was a close one.

So there you go.
Spending thousands of dollars on high tech machinery, and still you get beaten by a 1 dollar golf ball. Flush down the toilet Smiley

PGA TOUR pro Stewart Cink, right, tested his "driving performance" against that of professional race car driver Graham Rahal in a BMW M6 and professional motorcycle rider Nate Kern on a BMW K1200 to open the inaugural BMW Championship in Joilet, IL on Tuesday, September 4, 2007. The demonstration, in which BMW pitted a golf ball hit by Cink against a BMW M6 and BMW K1200, showcased the speed, power and performance both of the sport of golf and the art of driving a BMW. Cink edged out the competition in three close matches.(Jim Sulley/newscast)


BMW M5 against K1200R against golf ball
They did a similar race in Germany last year, running a BMW M5 and a K1200R motorcycle against a golf ball. The results were more or less similar. The golf ball starts off by travelling 190 mph and then slows down. The M5 gets to 62 mph in 4.7, while the K1200R does it in 2.8 seconds, but they continue to accelerate, while the golf ball slows down.
