+1 on what Ken said.

I fondly look back at a ride halfway between Prescott Valley to Jerome, AZ. That is the road to the west of Jerome.

I was following a Kaw Ninja ridden by a fella of about 20ish+,
he was in full "ATGATT" with shorts, tennis shoes and loose flying hair. All that aside, he was trying his best to leave that big ugly old man's bike in the dust.

He somehow never got the job done....
I was always 3 to 5 seconds behind him in every corner. My girl was in 3rd most of the time with an occasional 4th gear action. Taching whatever it took to the rev limiter.... she just kept on showing that Ninja how to do the twisties....
