anti rolling resistance galore!

When you pull into your favorite grocery parking lot in 2nd gear just fast
enough not to rile anybody, then you do figure 8's and so on to USE all
of that energy before final parking as who wants to use the brakes when
not really needed?

This would be a great lesson to show a passenger how lovely something
rolling can go on and on, and always reminds me not to waste in other places.

I'm happy to have returned to a place where I have lived before, where the side roads have a stop sign about every mile, the road is perfect straight,
a faster car from behind can easily be waved by, and its great fun to dial
in the glide point at different speeds going toward the distant stop sign;
so quiet a road inviting the PERFECT glide to the stop sign without ever
touching the brake.

Can life get much better than this?
