    That "Fastest Rider" dude demonstrated some major skillage. Even thought i saw 82mph for a second... and he stayed in his own lane! Unlike Jared Barnes here:

    I remember a run we did around midnight or something one year. We got to a turnaround and hung out there for a while. There wasn’t anyone else out that we passed or anything, so it was pretty dead silent and pitch black. About 10 min later we see huge spotlights ripping through the trees. I think there were like 3 or 4 “local” guys on bikes that all had big front mounted spotlights and helmet lights. They stopped and talked with us all for a while asking what the best times were driving the full dragon, and what speeds we were hitting. I seem to recall the bike guys saying they were hitting 90’s in the more straight parts if they weren’t tied up in traffic. You clearly know there aren’t many “straight parts”, and they don’t last very long.

    Someone from that night snapped a pic of the stargazing prior to the bikes showing up. Taking a rest on the dragon after a few were feeling sick from riding in the back seat on the first lap.

    I bought my set from Costco. Cost was $100 so not too bad. I really like them a lot, might be the best $100 I spent in a while on something.

    Aw and the buyer fell through, hopefully I’ll get rid of them eventually. I bought them when I just got the car from advanced auto not the greatest set but were good to start me off with something!

    Not today, but yesterday I took the time to wash and detail my car. One of the best feelings is seeing after all the work you put in pay off when the car looks so dang good!

    I popped my hood to check the oil and it looked like something nested I’m my car when it was parked outside. There was pee in the crevices of my intake manifold. Spent some much need time on the bay and washed the car good. Took the si out of semi retirement for the rest of the weekend cause A/C is just awesome in 90 weather. 6DD6C639-056B-4405-8CED-4775ED700CCE.jpeg 379F17D9-CF74-41C8-8BB0-787EF9F50DFF.jpeg

    How about a groundhog that took a 30 min trip in the engine bay back home into the garage. It decided to chew the wiring harness.

    Magically got reassigned to a new work location with about an hour commute so I installed a 300W powered sub in the Si for a little extra low end while I'm stuck in traffic. Sounded good to me in the driveway, we'll see how it sounds on the ride to and from tomorrow.
