Funny story: Hrm, can't think of one right now.
Scary story: A friend and I are traveling through the countryside and we get stuck behind some farm equipment. It's a two lane road (one lane for each direction of traffic) and there's traffic on the other side. After like 10 minutes, I get an opening. I'm three back from the tractor but no one in front of me is going. So I WOT the shit out of this thing and as I'm passing a pick-up truck (1st behind the tractor), he decides to pass as well and almost hits me. I used what little throttle I had in reserve and bolted. I was just praying that my friend did not follow me (he was right behind) otherwise he woulda been smushed. Thankfully he didn't follow me. My closest call to date on the Gixxer.
Misc: It's a Gixxer :D

I would have had a ton of more information for my Kawi but it's no longer mine. I'm just riding this Gixxer to pass the time until I move back to America and buy a new Kawi again.
