    nope, it was a very windy/dippy road along the river that i love to "un-wind" on. This is the first time I was doing that kind of speed on this particular stretch. Normally i take it up to 70, break down to 45, pass a car...up to 70-80, break to pass another car...

    it was sunday late at night w/no one on it. My car is going to be stored in 4 days and i wanted a last hurrah: so i just held 4th @ 4000 rpms. gonna have to be more selective next year
