That's insanity. He was way out in the oncoming lane to make a few of those turns. I would have like to seen the faces of those bikers that he passed. Thanks for the link.

I've been over Grimselpass on the LT. Doing it that way is insane, but in a good way. I imagine he could pass under some cars if he wanted to.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Sometimes you can get so fixated on the fact that you are right that you lose sight of the reality that it doesn't matter.
