Well put, I usually employ this method as well.Guano Apes familiar Sumo song... I think every video Supermotogladiator has posted has that song... never gets old, still gets me pumped.
Yeah, the Daytona 675 needs to get its heart rate up! The tach goes to 18k at least get it above 10k
Regarding the motorists getting pissed about being passed... As long as you don't put them in danger or cut close too them (i.e. a clean pass that in no way affected their day); f*%k them. If they confront you, just say that passing allowed both of you to go at your respective preferred pace and you are sorry if it startled them, but the double yellow is for the trucks, buses, VW vans with 49hp, and you waited until it was safe to zip by.
If they are still mad, just smile and wish them a nice day and leave because they are shitty human beings not worth wasting energy on.
That road is so long that once you pass someone you never see them again. Passing people is the only option on that road, people in Albuquerque are so oblivious and self centered that it never occurs to them that anyone might want to go faster than they are going, and even if they realized that they would never go to the trouble of pulling a bit to the side for you.He needs to wind that thing out a bit, at first I thought his tach was broken! I don't think he ever got it over 6500 rpm in the video. Nice looking road. Even though it is a double yellow, you guys had plenty of room to pass, but do you ever get motorists pissed and reading you the riot act when you stop? I've had people get all sorts of pissed off when we pass over a double yellow and I try not to anymore unless it is a clear shot for us bikes.
Pretty sure that trait is inherent with all Americans, not just those around Albuquerque. There is virtually no comprehension of lane discipline on multi-lane highways with most zombie cagers in the US picking a lane to park in, clogging traffic flow, so it is no surprise they wouldn't even consider pulling over on a single lane road for someone wishing to pass.people in Albuquerque are so oblivious and self centered that it never occurs to them that anyone might want to go faster than they are going, and even if they realized that they would never go to the trouble of pulling a bit to the side for you.
