Exclamation Friday afternoon...traffic insanity

MH,

Normally I ride on Friday afternoons. Today I had to go shopping around SL town square with my youngest Princess so the Queen will be happy. We took her cage, the traffic with school out, shoppers, blocked intersections, distracted in a big hurry people = insane. Last Friday's ride was dodgy with several near and close calls (classic left turners, and one guy backing towards me in the neighborhood).

I think I am skipping riding on Fridays until after Santa comes. I will be out flying the Guzzi early tomorrow though, and Sunday.

Be careful out there.

I was out this morning around SL to Rosenberg...it was ok until around 10:30 AM, then out came the hordes of shoppers, trucks, etc and rain showers...ugh. Nobody in their remote mind is looking for a motorcycle this time of year...so be extra vigilant!
