cause there were some times, especially on this last trip out to hill country, where the gusts would last atleast 3-4 seconds. Then you get to thinking..can it happen?? I just go with the flow really, but have you guys heard of instances? Aside from panicking, or just leaning into it too hard and it abruptly goes away or what not. Have there been recorded instances where sometimes it's just too strong to do anything about?

I saw 3 or 4 guys on bikes on 529 this morning. At lunch, it felt like it had picked up a good bit, so I wonder how they end up.

I got caught up in a thundercell near Austin a few years ago. Very hard rain coupled with winds had me leaning to the right pretty hard and fighting to stay out of the oncoming lanes of a two-lane highway. Wasn't too fun. I was worried about lowsiding, and all I was trying to do was ride straight!

There's gusts predicted for this weekend too - should make for a an interesting trackday, hmm?

they are re-paving part of highway 6 and they did that weird thing to it where they resurface the road by cutting all these uneven grooves into the highway so the asphalt sticks to it I guess? I was talking to myself as I was riding over that saying "this is fcked up!" as I was being blown from one side of the lane to the other.

well you kind of have to let the wind support you and lean into it or it will blow you into cars in the next lane/into a ditch/into oncoming traffic. I think it's a neat feeling.

and yeah, who kicked a freeway wall and for what purpose???

The wind really didn't feel too bad today. The worst was sitting still at stop lights feeling as if the bike was going to blow over while your sitting there

Just rode up to my house in Huntsville and back and it was windy but it didn't really bother me at all. I think it's because we took the forest and the trees blocked most of the wind at our level.
