After 40+ years riding, this was a first !

The wife and I wandered over the mountains into western NC Saturday, cruised down some truly beautiful back roads. Then I noticed a motorcycle in my rearview mirror with flashers on. Behind HIM were appx 20 spandex-clad bicycle racers. This is the very first time I've ever had my doors blown off by BICYCLES.

It all makes sense now why some people have such grand claims of fuel mileage and tire life.

You'll never hear ME making any "grand claims of fuel mileage and tire life." The wife wondered if those guys were laughing to themselves as they smoked us.
