That's pretty strong! I'll just have to go really fast so it doesn't knock the bike over.

I rode some on Tueday - the winds were picking up, but not as bad as now. Even so, felt like the rear tire was flat since the bike was doing all sorts of weird side to side stuff.

man they started yesterday if you asked me. I went to fuel the bike up around 5:45 or so and just riding around the subdivision streets around that time, felt like the winds were starting to gust up. Hope the winds hold off at MSR, that will suck if its excessively windy especially since I need to get better with lean angle!

I saw a dude on a Silver Wing on WLY yesterday on the way home that was fighting it like crazy. He was probably worn out from the ride home.
