Heavy traffic, grouchy mood, a-hole cagers, other unsafe riders, cops all over the place,

You are so right! It can be a pain negotiating traffic at times.


Let's all take a collective deep breath....and unwind.

It's gonna happen. But tomorrow (at least for me) is saturday. And where I'm gonna be, it's gonna be a GREAT saturday. And it's gonna be spent riding!

Think of it this way - at least you're saving on outrageously expensive gas.

Same here today, despite the gas price, the roads are packed dawn to dust. Weekends & countryside roads - that's the recipe.

Check out the roads between Ft Hood and San Angelo. It used to be nice riding when I was there. (1980's) I remember Fm580 was very nice.

80F last Saturday. Today it snowed and never got above 46F. The snow didn't stick but it made me stay in the garage.

Come on Summer!

Been there JimKo to the point that I couldn't wait to get off the bike.
You will get over it.

Heavy traffic, grouchy mood, a-hole cagers, other unsafe riders, cops all over the place,

:roll:
:shock: my worst day ever ~ yesterday ~ could have been MUCH worse (knock on wood) ... somebody was riding with me & I'm not religious...

during an escort mission with PGR to Arlington National Cemetery~ I started to get a knot in my stomach - thought about it & should have broke off & went home at that point - but on the way home - in stop-n-go freeway traffic, hotter than sh#t, started really not feeling good - figured it was just heat...

pulled off on the next rest stop & got a $1.75 20oz bottle of almost cold water from their vending machine ~ tried to refill the bottle plus 2 others I had with me at the drinking fountain that didnt work :roll:

sat for a few minutes in the shade & then geared back up & continued on ... still hot, still stop-n-go ... apparently I blanked out a couple of times :shock: but not for too long, & always still in my lane.

I decided to get off the interstate & got to a 7-11 just off the exit & got a huge bottle of Gatorade - stood in the shade under the "no loitering" sign & then proceeded around to the side of the building to dry heave a couple of times... :?

should have stopped then, but felt a little better as I cooled off ... called the wife & let her know where i was at. I went straight to my class (as it was closer than home & I had 30mins to sit in the break room to rest & see how I felt... )

barely made it thru to the first break in the class (about an hour in) called the wife & had her come pick me up - bike is still sitting (i hope) in the Univ. lot ~ I let security & admin know my situation & that it may be left there...

went straight to bed & called in sick today - slept all day, finally ate around 2pm ...

just can't stop thinking how stupid it was to continue on riding in my "condiditon" :oops: dont know how I made it from Arlington to Stafford without winding up off the side of the road or lodged in someone's trunk.

turns out it was a stomach virus that the kids had recently (sure the heat didnt help either, tho) :?

Hope your feeling better. The heat just multiplies a stomach virus by about 100%.
Thanks - yea ... nothing a good day of being comatose in bed didnt cure ... my left leg hurts tho ... muscle to bone ... :? may have slept on it wrong ? (for 10-12 hours...) :lol:
