Today coming home from Ohio I got a low altitude flyby form a 05 GSXR 1k & a UFB (unidentified flying bike). :crazy:
I was cruising in the slow lane at about 75mph.
The UFB (bright orange) came by so fast (150+) I didn't even know what it was at first.
After I gathered myself from the slight fright of the loud pipe buzzing by.
I noticed another bike ahead cruising around the speed limit.
The orange bike blew past it and then slowed. They both got off the interstate at the next exit.
By this time I was just wishing I was with them on my bike instead of in the Peterbilt.. :sob:
I cruse on by and think the UFB was a ZX10 (not sure at this point).
Just a mile or two down the road I see them approaching in my mirror.
They ride up beside me and I matched there speed.
I gave a :thumbs: and motioned for a wheelie.
As most liter bike riders are, they seemed happy to oblige.
The ZX slowed, then the Gixxer.
I slowed to allow them more room and they where off.
The ZX did a marginal but decent wheelie while the guy on the Gixxer pulled one of the sickest wheelies I have ever seen. :dthumb:
I mashed on it just trying to keep up (not easy in a car, my less a big truck).
He leveled off speed at around 85 and rode for well over 2 miles on the back wheel, only to set it down for traffic. :drool:
I wanted to be on my bike so bad at this point. :cry:
Afterwards they pull into a rest area and I follow, of course. :wink:
I don't know why but, I was shocked when they removed there helmets.
It turns out that they are husband and wife in their 30's.
Pretty nice people.
I didn't even notice it was a female on the ZX. :screwy:

Ok; I know this was a long story but, I had to share.
It just made my day! :lol: :twfrox:

I wish I had the time and dedication to go more.
Thats one of the biggest draw back of my profession.
I refuse to let myself become a stereotype and do whatever it takes to stay lean.

I love to see the girls with the passion to ride. :dthumb:
