Yesterday I discovered how important it is to have some gitty up. I got boxed in with traffic merging. Heavy traffic in center lane, me in the right lane, right lane merging on. I slowed some and fell in behind a merging car with some space, then another merging car nearly clipped me with her front fender.

Going 65-70 range, probably 6th gear though. I squirted ahead cranking on the throttle. Nice to have the ability to get out of the way. Glad 6th gear didn't bog down on me. Thank you BMW.
