Say your driving down a off the main road highway, you know the ones, they seem to go to every little hick town around and tend to go around the edge of everyones farm fields. They have a 90* corner seems like every 1\2 mile or less.
Well, when you can see pleanty far down the road to see no cars are coming for that next hard left corner, do you cross the center line to get a good apex on the corner? or do you slow down and hold your lane??

I miss my motorcyclr, though I know the commuters around here don't. MB next month the bitch will be back on her wheels after a year of lacking time and parts... (after I'm done with my map, dammit)

I don't cut the corners unless I am 100% sure there is nothing comming the other way, then only usually a little (since there aren't many sharp corners which you can see round here, all sharp corners tend to be completly blind)
Sometimes at night I like to take a racing line round corners, since you can see in advance if there is anything comming if there are any headlights in the distance.

Well a case in point is driving over a level crossing on a railway line - how many people (including myself) check left and right to see if there is a train coming?

There is no such thing as a sure thing

Fuel injectors went south causing eratic ignition, ergo timing chain slippage (2 teeth, valves AOK). During a wiring check my help fried my black box, Aaarrg!.
2 weeks ago I scored a used CPU on eBay for 70 bucks (list $900) and finally got new injectors from the factory just a day or so before (4 bills for the pair). Now they sit on my puter waiting for me to finish the remodel job on my homestead (and map). Perhaps alittle more info there, but what the heck.

A new timing chain tensioner was put in early on, leading to finding the injection prob...

Bike's 20 miles from me in a friend's garage. I know, my priorities are wacked and RealLife is conspiring against me. I want to finish my map for phase2 of the MSUC (Oct15th), and I hafta finish remodelling before my wife's folks show on the 22nd, so the bike waits.
