Another 208 mile round trip to Beaumont today. Straight highway but threading around the cars and trucks make it kinda' twisty.

I know how it feels. Not a bike commuting day goes by without some 4wheeler pulling a bonehead move on me. It's mighty hard not to get PO'ed, but this is where the ZEN of Driving comes in handy... better just let it go and ride another day... than get all bent out of shape and pull a bonehead move of my own, possibly getting in trouble, or worse, a wreck.

Can't say the ZEN thing always works for me, but I try.

I go into the office in the Galleria area 3 or 4 times a week. I've driven a car there probably less than 5 times in the last 2 years and have only had to take evasive action 3 or 4 times. And all but one of those were more for preventing a conflict than getting out of one. I ride a white VFR800 with bags and topcase so I'm pretty easy to spot.

My philosophy is to stay out of drivers' blind spots, move with or just SLIGHTLY faster than the traffic, and don't ride erratically because it helps if you stay predictable. And really do try to look 12 seconds ahead and predict what could go wrong. It's all one big chess game. Strategy, strategy, strategy....and the occasional fistfull of brake or throttle to get out of an unforseen jam!
