Thanks. It was just a leisurely ride that day. I decided not to push it too hard with all the bozos out there.

No matter what some people may say about overdoing it on a public road etc ... I like your positioning square in the lane, not leaning over the line. Well done.

He said it ran pretty well, but didn't stop too good.

The... uh, vehicle-- looks like it's a rolling Tree of Shame.

But not to judge. He looks like a colorful character with a lot of good stories.

He probably doesn't care about getting passed.

No, of course not - just wondering.

A friend of mine still tours in his early 70's VW bus. I have helped him rebuild that motor once, top end twice. He has well over 300K on that thing. He goes a steady 60/65 max. Cars get by him pretty quick with the high speed limits out west. He does not mind it one bit.
