Great riding weather this morning. Only saw one SLPD, parked next to the median in the dark, flashed me as I blew by him.

Saw not one HPD today on 59 and BW8. Traffic has been light all week so far, so I pushed the speedometer needle up a bit at times. Might as well enjoy the go while the going is good.

I normally ride the bike in - it's my commuter - but with Nugget (boyfriend) in New York, the street car has been available. So... I've been taking it. It's a Subaru WRX and... It feels like a bus. It's huge. It's soft. The clutch is very soft and very twitchy. And the stupid turbo torque curve is annoying in central Houston, where it's tough to keep it in the powerband. If I was able to stay over 30mph, it'd be fine (well, maybe 35), but the gears are too tall for this 20mph traffic - first is unreasonably short and jerky but second is so tall it leaves me out of the powerband. RAWR.

I don't miss the time spent putting on all the gear. I miss just about everything else about taking the bike.

Rode to a customer in Beaumont, nice 200+ miles round trip. Saw about 5 DPS on the way but managed to avoid any incidents. Nice day for a ride, just a bit windy.
