Ok, well, I ride on 610 and 288 twice a day, 5 days a week and I've seen all that and more.

And thats because all the traffic during the day, by the time of night, it has usually been moved to the side of the road or removed

Yup. When you have done it so many times that you know exactly where each bump is and what line to be on as if it was a track. You have done it too much. I try to stay away but sometimes I get a text to ride and say well **** it.

Yeah, I think it was a rubber peice from one of those plastic consrutction cones. But you know the rules on Routes, dont ride right behind someone, because that could happen.

I can see just as good at night, the only thing is the unforeseen debris, but yeah, you right at those speeds, things are a blur. for me, my reflexes are alot more keen than backroads, both are fun, but there's something about routing that makes it more exciting.. The risk of the UNKNOWN is always present, I guess thats what makes it interesting
