Default New Year, New Record

Well, I finally got Bonne Blue up to 100. Took a raod trip to Southern Minnesota on the 1st. On the way home, there was a fairly straight, open stretch, and I decided to punch it. Got to exactly 100 before I ran into trafiic. The missus, sitting right next to me, wouldn't believe we were going that fast. Smooth as silk!!

Next goal, hit the limiter...

Way to go Mos, after 100 the bum starts getting light watch for cross winds.

On our body style, the nose starts getting light between 120-140. The tail stays fixed. Yours must be because of the newer body style.

Geez it'* like it happens just @ 100.... no it'* not.

But people have a fixation with using round numbers everywhere, when was the last time anyone micowaved something @ 33 seconds? I do because it'* easier then hitting 30..

[/rant]

@ 110 i felt fine in my car.
