What time do you ride in the morning?
I wave to about 50% northbound riders on the HOV

It's been nice in the mornings, can't say the same about the afternoon. Seems to be more traffic every day.

My commute went from 50 miles a day and no traffic to 18 miles a day but bumper to bumper traffic. My bike used to get 40-41mpg now she's down to 32-35. I kinda miss the FZ6R, she'd get 45mpg without trying, and I could get 50mpg+ when I drafted metro buses, lol

Any one lane splits? I get so tempted in bumper to bumper traffic, but im afraid my handle bars and bar end mirrors will hit people's side mirrors.

Very very rarely I do. When im in complete traffic and my bike is over heating, yeah I'll start to.

One thing you should know is that there is very little room for error in Houston - you have everyone and their mother's texting and driving, at the same time they are trying to change their baby's diaper. Can't really use the shoulder, it's nothing but a cluster of 18-wheeler tires and bed frames.

Yea, bar end mirrors will make it that much more of a tight squeeze...

I try to avoid freeway traffic like the plague. My solution was to stop riding in to work! Haha. I get my fix on the weekends. I'll split cars at stop lights though.

Oh yeah, my eyes are constantly scanning during rush hours. I don't really trust the shoulder's either. It's how punctured tires happen. Just today cagers were recking left and right, hold back rubber necker, and it was annoying as !

In bound on the Katy Freeway Sunday a fully loaded auto carrier was going slow and weaving in the fast lane. I pulled up beside him and he was looking in his lap, texting. Wanted to phone his company and but there was no phone number on the cab.

Just drove back from NM over the weekend. I could tell we were getting close to Houston by the stupid driving that proudly presented themselves.

Plus I started sweating within 2 steps outside my car.

You have to drink water constantly in the high temps. I make sure I get a big gulp of water before I get on the bike and head home from work.
