Red face Should I be ashamed?

Riding home today I was passed by a kid in a Geo Metro. At least it was a red Metro you know the fast ones.

I was wondering if his gas mileage was about the same as mine. Has to be close.

I used to hate when anyone passed me, but since I moved into the RV I have grown to accecpt the fact that everything passes us now. ( but then most everything that does pass us aren't carrying their house with them.)

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Yeah the Vstrom is fast but I'd rather ride the KLR.
