I was headed home today and was on a road in the Ocala National Forest. Light traffic and staright for the most part with some rolling hills. the road is flat paved well and has a ton of run off room if something stupid happens.
I was cruising at 70 in a 60 zone on the 2 lane road when a 550i passed me. He was running about 85 and so I decided to tag along.
We passed several cars when he noticed I was still behind him. He sped up to about 95 and I hung in there.
He held that till we cleared a corner and had a nice straight stretch of about 3 miles where he planted it.
I planted it too, and by about 115 pulled into the oncoming lane and came along side him. I evened up with him at 125 and waved a friendly hello.
I slowed down, but he got the message that if I wanted to stick with him I was going to and if I wanted to pass I was going to. I let off and pulled in behind him.
He resumed his 80-85 cruise and I dropped in behind him and enjoyed having a front door.
He was probably thinking I was a 4.6L 3v GT. A little education is always a good thing.
