Thanks Potsy. Does make a bit more sence now.
Reminds me of a trip to France a few years back, 8 of us on various 'bents, including Mike Burrows on his Ratcatcher. As we waited to turn out of a side road, a French roadie went past, and Mike pulled out after him and hung on his tail, apparently effortlessly. After the first 'WTF!'* double take glance over his shoulder, the roadie tried his hardest to get away, but Mike just sat behind him. Halfway up the next hill, the roadie turned off - we always wondered if he'd always meant to, or was just getting away....Catrike UK said:A few weeks ago I was test riding a customers 700 that I had just given an overhaul to, I passed a roadie who then decided the race was on, we were on a slight uphill and he eased past near the top before it drops into a 3 mile descent, we were both knackered by then, he looked at the down hill then at me before saying "bollocks", I gave him a smile then made the jump into hyperspace, 3 miles later I had got my breath back and was thanking God that I had managed to climb so well.
I know, I was just going off on a slight (and pointless but I knew what I was doing) tangent in saying that if you stayed on my back wheel just because I overtook you earlier I wouldn't be amused, I wasn't referring to it happening instantly as you lot were as, frankly I'd never dream of doing that to anyone, that's all.Kestevan said:I think you're missing the point.
