Thank you sir! Looking great, I agree, power is right where I want it to be. Lots of people are tuning their engines, but honestly stock levels are right at that sweetspot between usability and scariness, at least for my abilities.
The Art of Racing in the Rain wasn’t the book, for sure, but it was good. It was just as much about racing as the book was, which is not a lot.
That driver score is clearly a challenge waiting to happen.
Sweet ride! Have fun.
I like hiking in Pisgah, south of Asheville on the Blue Ridge Parkway, particularly the Shining Rock Wilderness area. Lots of good food options in Asheville, including a really nice place called Posana on Pack Square. Lots of good brewery joints and tap houses, might check out Burial brewing.
Get lunch at Farm Burger
You can usually get 1 2 good runs in even with the traffic. I've been there 4 times now and its a hoot to drive. The Harleys are a menace tho...
