I was once riding my motorcycle through the Gotthard Pass in  
Switzerland. I am a conservative rider--no knee dragging etc. for me.  
On the way down from the pass, on the twisty mountain road, I was  
going 70-80 km/h. At one point I slowed down to perhaps 60 km/h for a  
particularly tight curve, and I was passed by a guy on a BICYCLE!!!
