It was a joy to watch someone's face light up as he told me all the little things they tried and changed to keep inching the speeds up.  Also how much enjoyed the guy whose record they broke come to impound and look their bike over.   Ahhh the joys of impound.   It hasn't been so long that I have forgotten.  :-D
