haha good laugh. yeah anyone that has been over there knows that traffic is nuts, pretty much you vs everyone else, traffic laws. pft.

go watch top gear when they were in the city tryin to get thru, its fkn nuts

although i think i can see why they do it. last i heard (from brother in law that just visited a month ago) they are capped at 125ccs.... that fkn sucks azz. and u though a 250 was cute here? go over there for a week. chinese imitation etc bikes everywhere. those "bikes" are mere scooters to us...

I like to try and make it a game sometimes. I see how long i can go while riding/ texting/ scratching my and humming the tune to "eye of the tiger".. The key is to get up to about 80mph then start, that way it will take longer till you have to put a hand back on the bars for the throttle.

I use riding the motorcycle as my escape from responsibility and my personal isolation bubble. I enjoy the inability of others to contact me while I am riding. So much of my life is on the computer, answering questions, explaining chit, etc.

On the bike that is all gone. It is just me and the rolling death blossom (if you get that reference I am impressed) of Houston traffic around me.
