When one of your coworkers offers to lend you their Z06 Corvette to go get lunch and you take the ADV instead

So I have a set of pumper FCR carbs in the thing and it wheelies effortlessly, it is very hard not to.

Anyway I pull up to the lights on Main Rd Newlands next to the brewery waiting for the lights to change. There is a very slight rise and corner... just too tempting.

I got to 3rd before the corner when I put it down and coasted to the next set.

"YOU ON THE MOTORCYCLE, PULL OVER!"

A white unmarked police car pulls up behind me and out climbs two big police guys.

"You know what you did wrong?"

"Of course! I am guilty as sin" as I took my helmet off. "It's pretty tough not to be naughty on this thing"

The one was much more chattier than the other. Amongst all the admin that happens, this was some of the conversation...

"Didn't you see us, we were right next to you when you pulled off?"

"No, really!" I laughed.

"Yup, I was just saying what big tanks you have and then next thing they were high in the air!"

"Geez, must you give me this christmas present? How much is it anyway?"

"Sorry man, 500 bucks. If you'd not slowed down we'd never have caught you through the traffic, it just doesn't seem right not to"

"Ahh, I suppose I can't argue with that, cheers."

You leave for a "short" ride, and have to remind yourself to avoid the gravel roads because there isn't much left of the rear tire and you don't want to fix ANOTHER flat in the boonies.

You are on the second tank of fuel on this "short" ride and headed back to the house and the best way home will include some fun gravel. You "take it easy" on the dirt and make it home without an issue.

Next day you suit up to go to work, get the bike started and warming up, take it off the side stand and it won't roll backwards out of the garage.

Yep, flat rear tire.

Replacement will be here tomorrow.

...you spoon on a new rear knobby, and it's nearly bald by the time you return from the "shake down" run.

The way it works is an inverse relationship between them observable in theory by noting how as the smiles come, the tires go.

I'll be spending some quality time with the bead breaker, tire tools and patch kit this evening to further the ongoing body of research toward proving this theory.

... when you hop back on your old KLR and the throttle cable feels like it's attached to a cinder block.

When you hop on it after it has been a while and go "holy shit this thing is huge!".
