Try riding a nekkid with dirtbike bars! I was cruising down I-10 and every now and then I'd get a crosswind and my front tire would pick up and seem to slide a bit. When it first happened I was like "Whoa... that was a strong one. Whoa... again!" Made it interesting indeed.

I flew in from Tuscon this afternoon and we had a real rough landing due to the crosswind. I was puckered up there for a few minuets. Hate those kind of landings.

I rode from richmond to channelview, to Katy and back to richmond and the wind did not bother me at all. I even went over the 610 shipchannel bridge. I have never seen this wind yall talk about. Never even on the fred hartman.

I'm flying out of Houston tomorrow morning at 7:45, hoping for some nice weather. Nothing worse than getting delayed after waking up at 5AM to catch your flight.
