glad you made it through that corner.

Last time I was up that way a guy didn't make that corner, despite Lena warning his group about the corner when we were all stopped at ripplebrook.

We stopped and I got the guy patched up (clean towel and duck tape on his knee)

I told them when they came up on my slow ass, I'd wave them by, which I did.

I recall that at Detroit the guy was feeling the hurt and Lena gave him all of her ibuprofen.

nasty corner, and on that road, I always wave folks by. I also wait for the long strait to pass folks that don't feel inclined to wave me by.

I don't even like that aspect of riding any 4-stroke on downhills, even inline fours like my Z1000.
There is something to be said for out riding folks fair and square and on a vintage smoker to boot. Those boys just got there egos checked. I think they where giving you the look since they thought something was wrong with you bike due to all the smoking. They probably don't even know what a 2 stroke is.

I miss my RZ350 ... But there is something to be said for V-twin torque
