So I was out on the big open 4 lane highway going rather fast into a cool spring headwind. Passed a fairly hot looking bike with rider dressed in "racing gear". He got into my lane right away behind me and up close so i floored it. Slowly he started falling back. I know he was trying to catch me. I just kept going and never saw him again.
Bikes have 3 disadvantages at high speed. -- bad aerodynamics, small displacement, and the discomfort of the rider. And some are not geared for high speed.
I could have been sipping a latte and talking on the phone at that speed. The focus is remarkably stable at speed.
Yes, I know there are MANY bikes that would kick my ass at high speed with the right rider and conditions, but this guy couldn't on this day.
