Hate it when that happens.

A little chilly on the hands this morning. Time to break out warmer gloves.

Low sided taking the overpass u-turn this morning on the way to work.
I didn't think my bike had it in her, maybe the tires don't hold as well anymore. My first set did about 8k miles, my current set is at 8k miles but they look fine.

Well um, also I think my clutch cable got fixed on the way down.

Picking a bike back up is so embarrassing.

Ride home was nice.

Almost got ran over. Dumbass in a truck swerved violently into my lane. Luckily, I saw the slight swerve to the left, before the major swerve to the right (my lane). 54C TB6. I dont forget plates.

now that i'm driving on the BW from 288 all the way to Westchase, i doubt i'll ever ride in.

even early in the morning traffic gets backed up on the BW.

and since i'm working long hours, i'm not excited about riding on the BW from Westchase at 6:30pm.....

I take BW8 from 249 down to Westchase and yes the traffic does suck. Fridays are generally lighter on traffic though.

Weather was nice too... just don't like staring at the sun.
