Sounds about right.

Also, I commute on my bike(i.e. I actually ride on weekdays, unlike some) so intersections don't particularly scare me. IMO multiple intersections is no more of a risk than entering corners at 2-3 times the posted limit on a "spirited" ride.

Sorry for your loss (of time). You've been on the wrong rides. They key is to go on a ride with a distant destination and a goal to be home before dark.

Well, except you have control of how fast you enter a turn. You have no control over the idiots approaching the intersection. I have to ride through intersections on my commute. I don't have to ride through them when I want to have fun.

Sorry...

10 March 15

KSU 615

This is a test run. Buellguy is gonna take me the long way to Down town through Pasadena and Deer Park to downtown.

Meet if you rode. If not meet me downtown and we'll head north.

Someone needs to sponsor a go pro.
