List a great solution to a nasty problem when you're riding.

Sometimes when I'm riding I'll get a cramp in my leg. If it's the left leg I can massage it out without stopping. What do you do when it's the right leg and your on I10 doing . . . . .. the posted speedlimit and can't just stop?

Two weeks ago I had real nasty headcold. Really bad stuff in the sinus'. On the way to work the nose started to drip a little so I gave a good snarff. A gelatinous glob of grey/brown slung back into my windpipe and I choked up this huge, thick, narly mass . . . . . . . ummm, full face helmet. Now what? What do you guys and "girls" - girls get colds too and wear fullface helmets- what do ya do with it?

Of course with a cold you have those sneak attack sneezes too and they can make the inside of the visor a mess. Now what?

What about an itch or a bug smack you need to get to, but there's no way to do it with your left hand? What are some of the other things that happen to come up where you really need your right hand, like getting your right shoelace untangled from the break peg, but you got it on the throttle doing 80? That is, where it's legal to do 80 of course.

Any weird/common situations and your solutions/advice?

Shart - yeah, that's another good one. The pressure from sitting won't let what you believe is just gas to pass, so you stand up a bit and release - - then you feel it . . . Now what do you do? sit back down???

I'd probably sit back down and hope it's not enough to streak down my leg.

a sniper will and himself to successfully complete his mission. if you can't do the same to complete your ride, you're not much of a biker.

^^^^^ I totally agree . . . . . and I have no problem admitting I'm not THAT MUCH of a biker. . . .
Maybe we can get off the subject of .
I was also kinda looking for some of the other things that you need to let go of the twisty side of the handlebars to do.

Don't wear laced shoes, problem solved.

Can't go wrong with a good pair of boots with ankle support

If my right hand is getting tired I just hold the throttle with my left and move my hand around.

Well you wanted to know, the saterday before last i was heading to k's in humble, So i was on 1960 E. 1/2 mile before the business cutoff to the right well all of A sudden everything in my stomach decided it wanted out right now, I was in middle lane so a quick look to my right, twisted my right hand to pass the car and made a bee line for the shoulder on the R. all the while biting down and holding back. Fortunately 30 minutes earlyer before i left the house because of the heat I wore my 3/4 helmet W/flip sheild, so once i stopped the bike, the sheild went up and............worst part was going that last 1/2 mile until i could get some water, R.R., and something to clean my right boot.
