I almost always drive the speed limit. Therefore, I have to derive driving satisfaction in two ways:
1. By reaching the speed limit in as short a time as possible.
2. By maintaining as much of that speed around corners as possible.
Unfortunately, our country is just too big to have an Autobahn-type highway system. There is far too much road to be maintained to the required level. The actual Autobahn is very well maintained, is smooth, level, and clean. If you tried driving at 130 or so MPH on most American roads, you wouldn't have much control at all, and chances are your ride wouldn't end well.
