I was about to post something else - then re-read and saw that your too slow driver is going 73 mph. Not sure what the speed limit is there on 2 lane roads - here it's 55 - too slow drivers are doing 50, and the vulcan jumps up to 80 pretty quickly making for a fast pass.

That said, the vulcan kinda runs outta steam around 90. She'll do more than 90 for sure, but it takes a lot more work to get that last 30 mph than the first 90 (that whole damn r=kv^2 thing). For every day, somewhat sane riding - that's just fine with me... if it wasn't, I'd ride a sportbike and have the tickets to prove it...
