2021 CanAm Spyder RT
When out for a ride, do you ever try to go without stopping for as long as possible, despite stop signs, red lights or stopped traffic, etc.? Sometimes I try to do that, not that I have any problem coming to a stop and putting my foot down before starting off again, but just to see how long I can go without taking my feet off the pegs. That does mean "California stops" at stop signs, slowing down well before a red light, trying to keep moving even if quite slowly until the light turns green and I can again accelerate away, and sometimes filtering to the front of a line of stopped vehicles, hoping that the stoppage is cleared as or before I get to the front of the pack. Sometimes I feel silly, and I do know that one of these days I might get ticketed for not coming to a full stop, but it is like the slow riding competition we used to do with the basic class students just to see how long I can go on my 900 pound plus Goldwing without actually putting my boot on the ground. Do you ever do the same?
