I hear ya. I was riding home from the gym one day on my Ducati after the trainer punished my arms and legs. Cars were stopping in front of me and my quivering arms couldn't get a real strong pull on that front brake lever. I mashed the rear and came to a stop chattering the rear wheel all the way.
I always like to tease the secretary when I ride too, she has said more than once that she would do "anything" for a Harley. But I can't anymore, Friday was her last day and she's moving to Iowa of all places. Course that can't be much different than SD. At least we have the Black Hills here.
I thought everyday was ride to work day. I do my 75 mile round trip commute by motorcycle because as a trendy suburbanite I'm naturaly just a socially responsible kinda' guy. I installed a cup holder and cell phone jack on my Trophy so now I can sip a latte` and chat on the phone while I blaze down the carpool lanes. Did you miss that down pour this morning Kpaul?
I got a little bit rain spits. near Renton. But what is funny is everytime there is a hint of rain you will not see a cruiser in the parking lot. Only sportbikes and touring rigs. If I had 75 miles everyday I would probably step up to a bike like the Trophy
I ride to work everyday it not's raining or too cold. This "annual ride your Harley to work day" is ridiculous. Maybe we'll see lots of dressers being trailered to work and unloaded in the parking lots.
I ride to work every day that there isn't snow on the ground. The weather around Lake Superior is about as fickle as you will ever find, but I rather enjoy that "are you crazy?" look that I get from passing cagers in the middle of our monsoon like rain showers, and the "you damn fool!" I get from my wife. If only they could see the smile behind my helmet. I guess some of us just know how to enjoy life that much more.
