    I lost traction. It was a rainy day, and I assumed the puddle I rode through was water. Had I thought about it, I probably would have wondered why there was a puddle UNDER an over pass... whatever it was, it was slick as snot and I went down faster than a blink.

    You know that the Miata would be great for towing a small trailer with a neat dirt bike on it...... A drop top with a trailered dirt bike is a great combo. Drive and ride with wind in your hair.

    Me... I'm towing a KTM 350 exc-f to the dirt in my Beemer drop top. I get some funny looks, but mostly thumbs up, when I'm coming back..... Shiny Beemer with the roof down towing a Dirt Bike absolutly plastered with mud...... all with Pergolesi's Sabat Mater (classical lyrical music) blaring.
