    This is how one deals with the boredom of riding across the Texas Panhandle.

    Taken with a Sony P&S I carry in my jacket pocket.

    Sh*t! I certainly would have if I'd been on the bike. :eek: 

    A ton-up one handed? No wonder you don't want your mom to know! :biggrin:

    Please tell me you had one hand on the bars.......:eek:

    Watch out for the coyotes, armadillos, and 18 wheelers. They all seem to hit or get a lot in that area. One stupid 'dillo could ruin your day............

    I turned the camera on and got setup at a more reasonable speed. No cars and no wildlife around. And yes, other hand on the bars.

    The road's not even turning, and the bike's not even leaning. ;)

    Your sub compact probably can't do 100 MPH unless your going downhill with a tail wind. Lol

    Our subcompact has 100 hp and a top speed of 104 :biggrin: It will get there, just requires some patience. Our regular compact smashes into a 118 limiter, and does it fairly quickly ever since I installed some modifications. The subcompact has a new exhaust system waiting for it too, actually.

    I'm a speed freak but bikes scare me :eek:  One handed and taking a photo is ballsy, that's for sure.
