Compliments of the author Brian Wringer and Robin Dean
“My name is Brian and I like to ride fast. There, I said it. Call it a confession, it’s also a celebration. I’ll bet you like to ride fast, too. After all, why bother riding fast motorcycles unless we get to dip into those vast reserves of speed and handling once in a while?
And on certain wriggly, writhing roads, when the time is right, when the pavement sparkles just so and we can see far enough, we do more than dip. We positively bathe in speed, luxuriate in lean angle and revel in the soapy, slippery dance of physics and physicality. It’s honestly the most fun you can have with (waterproof, armored) pants on and I truly feel sorry for all those muggles crawling along on four wheels.
“Leaving aside piffling concerns such as speed limits, it’s certainly possible for the ethical, polite rider to proceed with great alacrity.”

Is Speed … Okay?”
