I'm telling ya...64 degrees, a cloudless and sunni day, with unexpected, sudden explosions of wind and debris at your back, propelling you forward at unheard-of speeds.

The roads were super clear, with only tank-size depressions and subterranean ordnance to worry about. No cars, kids, dogs, people...or anything really...

What a ride!
