Freaking Wind

Was constantly leaning left just go straight and head North on 288. A gust of wind felt like it almost took my bike out from under me. Be careful

A couple months ago on one of my very rare escapades on the street, I was going 288 south back down to the track when I lived there, it was super windy and I swear to my bike almost fell over the wind pushed so hard... freaked me the out. It's always really bad outside of Pearland and then all the way down south- any wind or cold temps will get to you since it really opens up down there.

I have been out riding all day today. Yes, it is windy, but it takes much more wind to blow a Hayabusa around. Sounds like you need to upgrade.

Unlike Harley being an upgrade for a Busa, there is no upgrade for a CBR1000RR ABS Hurricane

No kidding. I was stuck in gridlock on the 610 feeder so I decided to split traffic up to the light and a gust almost blew me into a car. Be careful today.

Yeah , March is a windy month for sure.
The warmer temps come about ,but the winds are coming along with it.
Be happier to see April , the winds will be pretty well gone by then.

I know how this feels like.

The wind was bad today at the southwest side too. I feel bad for bryan [? duc supermotard dude] having to battle the wind with his good looking bike.
