    I thought the grey SUV had me. I was rolling + 20 over when I saw him. Brake lights after I passed him, then I took the next right and hammered down for a few miles. Never saw him again. Hide and seek has always been my favorite game. Really difficult to blend in on an orange bike though.

    That challenger is nasty stealth. Rear antenna behind tint, absolutely no hints of LEO but running 34.7 front and rear.

    I have the same problem with the "pumpkin" Hayabusa. Although, don't really need to blend in if you're in the next county already :D.

    More like the next area code. Busa is a monster and a awesome choice. I would love for Sport touring 2 up with the girlfriend. Nice bike.
    Share some pics or pm me some. Love to check it out.

    Yeap, it's my "Hyper Tourer". Been a great bike. Just about to turn 100k. Will eat the miles and still fun in the twisty bits too.

    Absolutely. 100K is quite a achievement if you get my drift

    I agree! That Challenger would be hard to spot! Thanks for sharing @Freebird !

    I saw this Challenger the other day, and thought how difficult it would be to spot it. Clearwater also runs a newer model Mustang that thankfully I spotted at a gas station, and not on the road.
