Correct.

The usual problem is going 57mph down hills and 43mph up the next one and then 47mph on level ground, continuously.
These are the clowns that drive me crazy on a fast 2 lane highway. They won't use their Cruise Control, but they don't pay enough attention to their driving to maintain a semi-constant speed. I've been known to pass one like this ^ in a 55mph zone just so I can get a little ahead of them and use my Cruise Control. And it's set at 60mph just to get away from them.

It's tough to get around them when you're 4 vehicles back and the ones right behind them are too timid to pass them or take too long to make a move so others might get around them as well.

On the bike? they are merely rolling chicanes and easily overtaken.
You know they are a genuine ass if once you do pass them, they speed up trying to catch you to ride your ass...
...also if they speed up to 65-70MPH in passing zones.

Lol. The highest 'mountain' here in the UK would look like a garden leaf pile compared to the mountains in the USmotherfukkenA. 4413ft for Ben Nevis in Scotland. Stiĺl high enough to die on but it wont be through hypoxia though, i know that much...
I think I will ride up to the top of Independance pass this am. It’s just over 12,000 ft. Hell I live at 7908’

there is an orange 73 or so corvette parked on the side..
Based on the one piece rear urethane bumper, and it being a convertible with the hard top on, I am declaring it a 1975. I had one in high school and several years after. Mine was a L-82 coupe, though. Sold it to get a brandy new 2000 Mustang GT. C3s are my favorite Vettes to look at.

Circa 1988ish

That 13.5 is a nice spot

I could build a nice house... my plan for that would be metal shipping containers and store people's motorcycles.. they can drive or fly in and pick up their rides and stay a bit.. then drop them back and drive fly home..

I already have 4 customers at $100 a month :)

Back before The Junkyard turned into... a junkyard, we used to store peoples motorcycles INSIDE! We had two buildings, one was just for storage. They'd bring them in, we'd clean em up a little if they needed it. Drain the carbs and fuel tank, put em on a Battery Tender and wait for them to call for them. We would have them call a few days before they wanted them to get them ready. Every now and then, a battery would not survive. We'd sell them a battery and install it. Pump up the tyres and stuff. They usually stored them in the summer.

Found 13.5 acres in Robbinsville with no restrictions.
How about 12 acres near Maryville, TN. ? Lower taxes....and it's on a cul-de-sac.
