Here in Ontario, the tractor trailers are governed to 105KPH and you have to watch them carefully 'cause they LOVE to be in the 'Hammer Lane' on the slab so they go to the left at any opportunity, sometimes I don't see what it is.
I pass them fast but they're long, and didn't this sumbitch put his blinker on half way through my pass.
WOT, bear left and horns on!
The Big German Twin did her job and I'm pretty sure that trucker heard my Stebel and waited for me.
No blame, they can't see cars, so they sure can't see us.
I'm liking the power very much right now.
Brother, that R1100RS is a nice bike, but it doesn't even begin to enter the category of "liter bike." Test-ride an S1000RR, then get back to us.
