So when did I get old and is it ok?
Bit of background first. Ex military (helicopters), Ex Air Traffic Controller, 2 wars, 9 years in the sandpit in total, 1050 skydives(military and civilian) and I'm Irish! Whats better that that?!?
So I was riding last week and a couple of 'Busas pulled into the bar I was having a 'Soda' at. We talked for while and I realized, either it's my age or maybe a cultural difference. Straight line speed doesn't do it for me!
Maybe I'm just stuck in the mid 2000's but here is my present garage
2003 BMW M3 Convertible (95,000 miles)
2003 RC51 (39,500) Mostly standard, tail unit, PC3, levers, Micron High Mounts
2003 RC51 (5,800) Nowhere near standard, every mod in the book, rearsets, braided lines, overbore heads, higher compression, clip-ons, etc
Fast is good but power without control is pointless. It was all proven when we left and went for a ride, yes, they pulled away but not one of them could stick it into a corner at pace and your extended shiney swingarm an fat tyre is just pointless! IMO
Am I just ranting or old? Or both????
