This reminds me of a very wealthy guy I know who used to say that you could park anywhere you like in London for 50 (cost of a parking ticket at the time - mid 90s). No need to spend money contesting the fine. It's just the cost of entry lol

It comes down to operator skill on any bike. In some traffic situations, slow (even inching) is the best way to go. Other times, high speed gets you out of a danger zone faster. A safe operator is able to inch as well as haul a$$ and knows when to do each.

Ditto!!!

I got back yesterday, from visiting relatives for a week, who are just outside of Charleston(SC). The road conditions were much lighter than what I am used to. No being hassled by the traffic.
