^"I lOVE the Longchamps what a perfect wheel/tire combo! We need to do a fun run in your neck of the woods"

Thanks Alvin. I just wanted something different. But I think the Panas and Wats are still the best looking for the roadster. We should definitely do a fun run in the East Bay. I know there's about 4 of us w/in the 10 mile radius.

So yesterday an idiot turned left at an intersection right in front of me.

Where the skid marks ended was less than 6 inches from hitting him.

If I had been looking at my gauges or rearview mirror, I would have hit him.

It can be scary out there!!

Whew! Life can be a matter of inches eh? I've had a few very close calls, one where I could have reached out and touched the logging truck front bumper as we passed... so glad you were on it and reacted quickly!

Now that the speedometer works I downloaded a GPS app. Speedometer is surprisingly accurate. 90mph uphill, stroker rules!

Wife and I took a 300+ mile road trip Saturday. Followed the back roads of north Idaho along the east side of Lake Couer d'Alene and back past Rose Lake. Beautiful day for a drive! Except, I rounded a corner and drove through some freshly spilled paint or stain. By the time I got home is was dried on. Spent most of today, mostly successfully, removing it from my lower fenders and rockers.

Pat, I got on Google maps and looked at your drive... exactly what these cars are for eh? We love to do that kind of drive. We went to Mt .St. Helens Saturday, staying off the main freeways and driving through towns we would normally bypass. Great country roads and some twisty turns, made even better with a a good copilot.

Last year a couple of friends of mine were in Montana on KTM 1290 ADVs and went down on an outside corner into the gravel at 50 mph. 5 gal bucket of oil!!!
Thank goodness it wasn't an inside corner or off of a cliff, neither were injured..bikes were rashed...
