When you take the long route.


I choose to take a back road to the grocery store that's 10-12 miles away instead of the one that's 1 mile through city blocks.

When there is a car going 10 miles below the speed limit in front of you so you cruise in forth gear waiting for the solid yellow line to break

when you move from nyc to park city utah for the mountain roads. and when going down seed roads you boil your brakes, but instead of complaining you start researching on how to improving the brakes so you can push even harder.


i upgraded to ecb slotted rotters and read stuff pads. motul dot 4.5 and ss break lines

Try creeping forward a bit in first then put it in reverse. Works for me every time. I usually go first to reverse or fifth to reverse but if that doesn't work creeping forward does.
