You see, Zack, Ari, and I were out flogging the NC, a BMW C600 Sport “urban mobility vehicle” (read: scooter), and a Kawasaki Versys. Up into the Malibu hills we went, the NC holding its own. Zack led, Ari was in the middle on the Versys, and I enjoyed the view from third. Until Zack picked up the pace. I realized then that I had corner speed in reserve but no answer for him from the apex on out. Z and his scooter would pull a slight gap on the exit that the NC couldn’t quite close—at least not on that tight road.
