Yeah. Hov opened on 290. Ride there fine. Ride home went from normal of less than hour to about an extra forty minutes.
This was due to saving 20-30 minutes splitting... and a good laugh at a really irrated truck driver that didn't like me cutting in HOV so was going to force me over and pass in HOV since I was in the right tire track. I learned that game a while back and moved to the middle. He slammed brakes, started cussing like crazy. I watched carefully, he then got a piece of paper and was determined to get my info, when I gunned my two fiddy and went 4 cars up and stayed there since traffic had started to move. He must have been so off to want my plate, and be only 4 cars back and see me there and not be able to do anything about it. I'm normally not very "hooliganish" and don't like to people off, but geez... if you're mad honk, don't try running me off the road, I only went around him because the lady behind me kept getting too close. Be mad, but don't be an idiot.

Otherwise as one of you wisely said.... "If you can catch me I'll apologize. Otherwise sit in your AC listening to tunes and shut up." Pretty crazy that you have to ride pretty aggressive to just not get run over in this city. I'm outta here when I get the chance. I'd like to move to San Antonio I think. Nice hill country and some family there. Traffic isn't perfect, but better than here!
