after driving 20 miles of interstate to work, you get out feeling like you just got off a horse

You have that grin on your face every time you drive, even as every bump on the bridge bounces you around like a bearing in a pinball machine

and yes, I have taken off my track bars and the ride is better!

What .. Are you spying on me again? I though I was the only one grinning ear to ear as I get thrown around.
