I can tell you know exactly how I feel :) I was out riding two days ago and a
couple of local dimwits asked if i wanted to race. Now I don't have acceleration,
it's all top end. I told them I would race them to the third light up the road. Well
he spins the tires on his mustang to make the point, and I ride up behind him
catching up slowly. It takes one light just to get up to speed and the second to
get ahead of the other traffic. At this point they are stunned that I am keeping up
at all. We get to the third light (about 3 cars back cause it's red). I pull up right
along side of him to some laughs and cheers. I tell them it's not over yet, cut my
motor, and pedal between lanes to the light. I WIN !
I pulled off a little later, and they went out of their way to come over to where I
stopped, say a few kind words, and ask some questions. It will be a long time
before they just dismiss another ped.
