No offence intended to you, Bob. In was referring to the kind of folks you 
see in cars where the turn signal is on, mile after mile after mile.

For those of you who don't know Bob Silas, he is nearing 80, looks like he 
could pass for mid sixties (my wife also agrees), and rides an RS like it 
was on fire. Last year I visited Bob and I went riding with him in the 
mountains (Mt. Tremblant). We spoke via FRS radio. He was in the lead on 
these twisty, bumpy roads, and he says to me "feel free to pass me if I'm 
holding you up." I just laughed and was glad I could keep up with him.

I want to be like Bob when I grow up :-)
