A play on words, or words on play
Last chapter, verse in the final act
Words well scripted, each sentence choking
Inaudible gag, blanket which suffocates
As you eat another's words
Malnourished, you starve.

But that's just me.
Yeah - travelling in a straight line at high speed with miles of straight road ahead is not nearly as thrilling as slowing down from top speed with the rear end fishtailing, into a 50mph corner while not being 100% sure you're gonna make it...

Weaving through traffic certainly adds a dimension, but unfortunately also does a lot to make other drivers more eager to cause trouble for others of us out there minding their business on public streets

Yeah, I never understood the excitement of highway riding. Rather boring at any speed. More challenging to ride around a parking lot at slow speed, lol. Get to the track to get the blood pumping. Oh, and don't forget your speedo is off by about 15%, so 160 is really in the 140 range. Best to use a gps to gather true speed data.
