not a kill but an observation.
I've commented before on paying attention and knowing your car and the road will give you more wins than speed alone. the same can be said for avoiding tickets, PAY ATTENTION TO OTHER CARS!!!!
Going down the slab early a.m. is a ritual with me. I look at everything especially cars. I refuse to use my phone when driving either the car or the bike. So today I'm tooling along at about 10 over the limit, there's a few cars with me not really a pack as we are kind stung out but all with in site of each other. Ahead of me say 1/4 mile or so there is a set of motorcycle taillights and the distinctive rear look of a late model Stang. I don't see brake lights but suddenly there getting closer quicker, so i dump the throttle and the bike slows to 55 MPH, as i'm now 100 ft or so from the other two. Several members of the pack whip out to the left lane and blow by us, right into the waiting arms of the morning speed patrol, as we wheel by, i count 7, thats right SEVEN cars pulled over waiting their turn with the man with the ticket book at 5:25 a.m. What a way to start the work week. $100+ ticket points maybe traffic school depending on your history. I know on my last ticket is was over $250 for the fine and the school to avoid the points and getting reported to the state and my insurance company ( i think i had 7 days to complete both school and pay the magistrate)
Ordinarily i'd blow by a slower car on that section of road, i've rides side by side at well over 85 MPH with others cars and bikes on the very stretch of road more than a lot of times!! Something just made me think hey if that fast mover and the Stang, shed some speed maybe i should to. I'd be willing to bet that several of the people waiting for their tickets were snuggly congratulating themselves on passing the rest of us.
I'D RATHER GO SLOW THAN NOT GO AT ALL
