Didn't think anyone would care. I was just giving him my reasoning for not finding another job. I'm not complaining about working 7 days a week. I was stating a fact as to why I don't go on many weekend rides, but I do ride.

In a side swipe... good freakin' luck!
remind me never to ride with you.....or if I do make sure I'm up on my insurance first.

Seriously what a DB...How many shopping centers actually have posted speed limits?
Top that off with the fact that most accidents happen in parking lots and are you sure you should be riding a motorcycle?

None, it's a rhetorical question. There's a parking lot behind Kroger? I'm sure I should be riding because I can afford it and I know what red, green and yellow lights mean on a traffic signal

That's not true I have seen a few shopping centers with posted 5 mph speed limits.
People do park their cars behind Kroger and there is a parking lot out front where people are likely entering the back, going around a blind corner...

All in all it's likely a lot more risky that continuing a right hand turn on a yellow light VS slamming on your brakes the exact moment it turns yellow.

Which Kroger is this? You shouldn't slam on your brakes when the light turns yellow. You should anticipate a yellow when the green has been on for an extended period of time.

There are several Kroger's where I have seen employees park their cars in the back if there is room.

I am aware of how a red light works. The original issue I was having is that the light was malfunctioning and it remained yellow for less time than it was supposed to. I know yellow doesn't mean accelerate, but it also doesn't mean slam on you brakes when it turns yellow and there isn't enough distance to safely stop in time. If I am traveling the posted speed limit, they should have the light timed well enough so that I can either stop in a reasonable distance, or keep going if need be.
