And she's so pretty that you're lost in the stars
As you jockey your way through the cars
And sit at the light, as it changes to green,
With your faith in your machine, off you scream into the night
And you're in love with all the wonder it brings
And every muscle in your body sings
As the highway ignites...

moth_wingthane got a landmark for a location at Route 12, so we decided to go there and take a look. It turned out to be a vehicle shop, called "Motors Delight" and featuring planes, helicopters, cars and more — even airboats. Most (all?) the stuff was available for trying out, too, so I hopped on a motorbike and rode it for a while.
And what can I say? It was a ton of fun; moth_wingthane and I both got a demo bike and sped across about five sims until someone's fenced-off private parcel got us stuck, somehow (bad interaction with lag caused by a sim crossing, I think). These bikes are 800 L$, and I'm really sorely tempted to buy one.
As for Route 12, I've been there before on day 129, day 130 and day 245. The latter sim's relatively far away, but the former two were practically right around the corner from where we were now, only about three sims away (as the raven flies).
