I'd most likely have hit the showroom door on the way out.

Not only is this speed on a beech, on a bike, heroic - but have you seen the range left with half a tank?!  :005:

 :008: well, that too. So, what do you think nowadays? For example I think "being slightly intoxicated" helps... Not with motorcycle riding though, other riding. Did I say riding? I meant writing. Or wrighting. Here, hold my beer...

Today I think "I don't care". I'll never ride like this and it doesn't bother me at all ;-)
