Default Speed is Relative!

An elderly man on a Moped, looking about 100 years old, pulls up next to a doctor at a street light. The old man looks over at the sleek shiny car and asks, 'What kind of car ya got there, sonny?'

The doctor replies, ‘Porsche GT3 RS'. It cost half a million dollars! '

'That's a lot of money,' says the old man. 'Why does it cost so much?'

'Because this car can do up to 320 kilometers an hour!' states the doctor proudly.

The Moped driver asks, 'Mind if I take a look inside?'

'No problem,' replies the doctor.

So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around. Then, sitting back on his Moped, the old man says, 'That's a pretty nice car, all right... But I'll stick with my Moped!'

Just then the light changes, so the doctor decides to show the old man just what his car can do. He floors it, and within 30 seconds the speedometer reads 160 mph.

Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror. It seems to be getting closer!

He slows down to see what it could be and suddenly WHOOOOSSSHH Something whips by him going much faster!

'What on earth could be going faster than my Porsche ?' the doctor asks himself.

He presses harder on the accelerator and takes the Porsche up to 250 mph.

Then, up ahead of him, he sees that it's the old man on the Moped!

Amazed that the Moped could pass his Porsche, he gives it more gas and passes the Moped at 275 kph. He's feeling pretty good until he looks in his mirror and sees the old man gaining on him AGAIN!

Astounded by the speed of this old guy, he floors the gas pedal and takes the Porsche all the way up to 320 mph.

Not ten seconds later, he sees the Moped bearing down on him again! The Porsche is flat out, and there's nothing he can do!

Suddenly, the Moped plows into the back of his Porsche, demolishing the rear end. The doctor stops and jumps out, and unbelievably, the old man is still alive.

He runs up to the banged-up old guy and says, 'I'm a doctor.... Is there anything I can do for you?'

The old man whispers,

‘Unhook my suspenders from your side view mirror!'.

Yup, I rode with Joe, there was a time he actually was fast.
I still have my purchased new 1977 Honda 750F exactly as it appears in this photo from 1977 to 2016.
Serious Keeper.

Keeper..

Sensei, that is an incredibly cool picture of you. I hope you have a blown up version of it hanging on a wall somewhere.

Ken's Honda 750 looks exactly as I remember it!
It was the late model factory hot-rod, and the envy of all the Honda guys.

I made my own hot rod, with Yoshimura engine parts, needle-bearing British swing arm, Marzzochi shocks, etc.

Funny how a fine bike ages so well, retaining its original, lustrous condition.
Riders age much differently!
