A little foggy. If those pitiful in cages would have hit the gas, it would have been a good morning.

AS it was, the dicks turned my 35-40 minute commute into an hour and 40.

I'd rather wipe my visor every so often than to ride with visor up. taking a big bee to the face at hwy speed is no fun.

i rode in today, had to get the cobwebs off the wheels...split lanes all the way from Antoine 290 feeder to the ramp back on to 610 North. Normal commute for me....even spun up the rear at 290 and Fairbanks due to a waterline leak....My baby does have a little power. lol

I wouldnt lane split, due to very limited visibility. I didnt need people to not see m, and run my over.

I just keep my head pointed towards the ground. Bees and debris will only hit the top of the helmet.

I was cruisin' at 10 mph, it's more like filtering than splitting....they we're sittin' still. They saw me...even had a couple jackasses scoot over like they we're gonna close the gap...backup was due to all the peeps entering 290 to get on 610 south. Clear roadway ahead of 'em.

I do this with my visor closed. The wind does a good job of keeping my visor clean.

Beautiful weather out today. On my way to work this morning, I had a guy stop and ask me " Do motorcycles have horns? " I couldn't understand him until he pointed at his steering wheel. I told him yes and honked at him. What are we supposed to do, yell at someone to get their attention, lol.

Rode into school today as well, gotta take care of late registration.

Fog wasn't bad at 7:15 when I left Conroe. It was there, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. Looking forward to some sunshine and good temps this afternoon.
