Coasting half a mile, taking a left into a parking lot, and coasting all the way into a parking spot. I missed my LRR tires.

Oh, and 3 out of 4 animals in the house getting along:

EOC through the last light on my way to work, two blocks, turn, one block, turn, coast into spot. total costing of .5 of a mile (initial speed of 35 MPG)

Watching the idiots slam on the gas trying to out run the next light (0% chance) only to slam on the breaks. I only speed up to 30 MPH then EOC, I end up right next to the idiot and make 40 + MPG doing it.

A second cat that hates dogs, even though the dogs could care less about him.

It's a shame really, he is quite lovable as long as they're not around. They show up? He's gone.

I thought the fourth one was taking the picture.

Neutral coasting through a green light while passing people on the left.

Getting slightly higher (24.9MPG) than the EPA rated 24MPG during the last tank with all short trip city driving.

Laughing when people tailgate you and pass you only to stop at a red light.

my trip meter just rolled past 160 miles on my cb750 and I still have about half a tank left! I usually only make it to 150! This turning it off and gliding thing is amazing if I can make it to 250miles my mpg will have gone from 39 to 65!

This should be in the annoyances thread.
It's a disgusting taste that only an Englishman can like

Second only to sour cream and onion.
