Today was my cross-training day so I rode to the airshow from a friend’s house, and we of course passed through Genesee Valley Park, otherwise known as the location of the McQuaid Invitational.

This Polaris Slingshot is a $20,000 “motorcycle” that goes from 0-60 miles an hour in six seconds. Conveniently, it also has no air bags.

Not much in the world that’s more badass than six F-18 Hornets making sonic booms 30 feet away from each other.
