Another reason for the KLR was to help me cope with following cars driven by the dead on nice curvey backroads. It had been working up until this morning when I turned up the heat to get to work on time and got a quick reminder of how much I like being able to pass people. I seem to be much more tolerant when I can treat slow cars as obstacles to conquer. In fact I remember being happier when there were a few cars to navigate on my morning ride.
