oh yes, you're very fast.
This would have been a great time for the dashboard video camera to be rolling.
Driving to work this morning I'm behind a Ford Explorer. It has a Harley Davidson sticker on the rear glass and a trailer hitch with ball. Which struck me funny about Harley owners trailering their bikes further than riding them. I arrogantly smiled to myself and immediately thought that's not nice. He could tow any number of things.
We came up to our first turn, a right hander at a 2way stop for opposing traffic and he clamps down on the binders like he's carrying a crate of eggs and plutonium. Literally crawls through the turn, then straightens up and took off like he started a stopwatch, vroooooom 0-60 as fast as possible. I'm instantly reminded of that Gap video where the Harley rider straight-lines a turn right off the embankment. Next turn, another right and we have a green light, I could smell the brakes burning as he came down to 2mph through the turn, then once again back on the gas like a Fast & Furious extra.
Fast forward a few more turns the same way and my frustration is tempered only by my amusement at this guy's fear of carrying speed through the turns. We're setting up for the freeway entrance, it's a sweeper left and can be taken faster than is sociably responsible even in my Element and I am fighting the urge to late apex and dive up the outside into the merge lane and add some embarrassment by passing him the long way around. But that would make me the a$$hole.
In the end I just stayed behind him and bode my time as we crawled through the on-ramp until we were on the freeway where he promptly dove over to the fast lane and made a beeline straight up to 90mph.
It's not the bike you ride or the cage you drive, it's the brain between the ears that matters.
