I write stuff. A lot of it is about cars and motorcycles.

Road King Irks Me

Share

So, I’m driving through Temecula, CA, today, going to my mom’s house to celebrate my grandmother’s 89th birthday.

Since I got the bike on Monday, I’ve put about 450 miles on it, so I’m about halfway through the break-in period.

I stop at a light, and a guy in a Road King pulls up next to me. We exchange a few pleasant words. The the light changes, I pull away from him handily at the light, initially, but, I have to start shifting early, keeping the RPMs down, and backing off the throttle. “Zoom!” goes Road King Boy right past me and down the road.

I hate the break-in period.
