Yup I usually coast until i can reach the ground or jus stay completely away from them when possible. Maybe that's one reason i still haven't ridin my bike to work that and the Dumb driver around there that drive a truck too big for them.

Did somebody mention being short? (I'm 5.5 on a good day) It don't bother me...you just adapt to the situation!

I lowered my Busa 2 inches front & rear & I'm still thinking about having my seat shaved for even better footing! Anybody know somebody who could do this (correctly) for me?

Don't feel bad Brandy, I dropped one of my bikes @ a friends house comming down a steep driveway...with all his family outside watching me take off on my new motorcycle! t happens!

Oh yeah & all the cool people are the short ones!

So. All around today has been an unlucky one, but I'm surprisingly chipper in spite.

1. Yelled at my daughter and took her phone away.

2. Dropped my bike in my driveway lake- couldn't pick it up by myself.

3. Spent 30 minutes going from 0-5mph on the highway for seemingly no reason at all. Late to class, and our day trip was cancelled.

4. Broke a little table during our Geo club meeting, at which I am the president and in charge.

5. Had a particularly rough workout- jello legs! Thanks to the substitute instructor - *this is not particularly bad, but I'll feel it tomorrow.

6. Locked my lab keys IN the lab, sitting on the table. This just happens to be the day that NOBODY is in the school with lab keys. But I had to get in, because my m/c gear was in there, also. Another student had to leave work to bring the keys.
