Sometimes...

I like to brake as hard as possible in a isolated forest backroad to feel the ABS kicking it. MAHSAGE, as the British would say it; kinda, sorta.

When I was practically this, I suddenly saw a rabbit, and it lived due to my psychic abilities. Proving further, that I am indeed, a clairvoyant being.

Sightings of the infamous bunnyman of fairfax was preceeded by a procession of waywardly appearing rabbits....

150 mile run how was it? You didn't bother to take recon pics

Any travel notes e.g. points of attraction, rest stops, food&beverage stops etc

No, I was too blown away by the roads to take any. The course is REALLY long, it's 50 miles (25 to the end and 25 back). US 50W leading up to that course is awesome too, very scenic. I recommend driving economically there, because the twisties will reduce your MPG significantly.

There are many blind corners, LONG tunnel like sweepers, but the "two-lane road" fits more like 1 and 3/4 of a car, so you have to watch out for oncoming cars. During 7-8PM, I encounted ZERO cars, so sometimes I forgot it was a two-lane road, since there are no markings.

That general area is pretty twisty, since it's in Markham. A lot of vineyards there, and some small towns along the way. I actually found the Naked Mountain Vineyard (their Riesling is delicious). There's also a WEIGHING station on the way there. I was going to weigh my car on the way back, but I had to get home before it got pitch black. In the morning, it's pretty breathtaking, but at night, there is absolutely zero light.

I left at 6:00PM, ran into traffic getting there, but once I was there, I was unencumbered. I arrived back home at around 10:00PM.

Definitely, I'll post a thread for it. The only thing is that I really didn't speed, except once for a long sweeper, but then I remembered what happened the last time I did that...also, I never went above the speed limit in residential areas. I wouldn't want to ruin those awesome roads, so the convoy would have to be a cruise. We can still have plenty fun. The speed limit ranges from 25-45MPH.

I predicted that you were going to post EXACTLY what you just posted. I can only predict things .1 of second prior to the event, thus rendering my ability pretty useless.

Funny thing is when I went for a test drive the salesman goes I'll show you the brakes and pins it from about 60mph.

He looks at me as if I should be impressed and I'm like thanks...tool
