Always😊. The Spider (or any motorcycle) is always a solid reason for taking ďthe long wayĒ.

I went to the store yesterday, (about 15 minutes away) and I was gone almost 7 hours!

I went to the store, then decided to drive up to the White Mountains and hit some twisty and scenic roads. My wife was working, so... Why not?

That was like me running errands today. I took the most circuitous route I could think of to get some driving time in. Lovely spring day in Calgary today, with temps in my area hitting around the low to mid 20's Celsius. Besides, it increases the odds of the "slow drive by".... you know what I'm talking about. You're stopped a few cars back at the red light, and someone does the verrrrry slow pass in the lane beside you as they try to figure out what the heck you're driving. Those Abarth badges are a major mystery to folks. lol

Every other car = Drives at a constant speed

Fiat 124 = Wait for an empty straight before putting the foot to the floor, to feel that turbo acceleration.
