Riding home from work today down Glenrinnes, I had a 40/50mph tailwind, I couldfeel no wind in my face up to 50ish. It's been seriously windy here all day.
But didn't it feel weird, no resistance, old M2 hurtled right up to 100, it was effortless, but f**k me what a row, the noise was deafening,
Looks like I need the headwind to take away the noise.
never satisfied.

Now just a minute, 100 is very fast considering the width,twistiness,and bumpiness of the B9009 Duffton to Glenlivet road.
But of course I wasn't really going that fast,after all the limit is 60, and I wouldn't
want to get into trouble ,now would I.
