I ambled Cheng's Across up our shared driveway on Saturday after a quick warmup lap of the block (she's doing well, no more crashes as yet!) and parked it for her to jump on and go out for a backblocks wobble. One of the neighbours, presumably used to hearing the Hornet come chugging past his place at 1500rpm, came bounding out of his house, eyes wild, and telling me off for fanging the little Across up the driveway. "There's rules, mate, you can't go hooning up and down the drive. Walking pace only!" "But mate, I was going very slowly... Did it look like I was hooning up the drive?" "I don't know what it looked like, I was out in the back yard. I just heard you hooning up the driveway!" Aha, 'twas the curse of the high-revving 250 that does 6000rpm or whatever at 20km/h and sounds like you're really flying. But try explaining that to an anally retentive accountant type... :roll: I gave up and apologised and will do the driveway in second gear in future! Can't wait to see how he reacts to 15 bikes in the drive when the Tassie crew drop round for dinner next week!
