Silver SLK 55 I40 near Mt Juliet... with donut

Coming in this morning I spotted a silver SLK55 AMG travelling west bound on I40 just under the Mt Juliet Road exit around 9:40am. Car was in the far right hand lane limping along with a donut on it's driverside rear. I'm sure he was wishing traffic would just fly on by but instead they were collecting up behind him. Mainly a motor bike that was tailgating him. (I never do understand why people on motor bikes tailgate. I've always been told they don't stop so well, so the last thing I would want to do is tailgate an expensive sports car while traveling 65mph.)

Actually, until I got my AMG I was convinced that there was no street car that could out-brake my motorcycle. I have not tested it but my 1200RT will stop as well or maybe quicker than the AMG.
This aside, tailgating is stupid, especially on a motorcycle!
