My road trip observations
No matter how frustrated I get with Houston riders and drivers I only have to visit my old stomping ground, New Orleans, to long for little old Asian ladies on cell phones merging into I-10 traffic at 15 mph.
The first bit of entertainment was provided shortly after the Sabine river bridge. In the Westbound lanes I caught sight of an Oldwing with obligatory elderly man and woman passenger while we were headed Eastbound. I had just enough time to witness her attempt to remove her helmet at 70mph for whatever reason resulting in her losing it to the wind. From what little I saw of the impact it's safe to say she won't be using that helmet anymore. Luckily it didn't hit any other vehicles.
During various trips into New Orleans proper in my stay I was assaulted on every front by 'Busas. Stretched, chromed, lowered, neoned and any other varying atrocity you could think of had been performed to each one. Without fail I was allowed to listen to them bounce off rev limiters at every stop sign, red light, or momentary pause in the flow of traffic. Each accompanying rider was of course gearless, no doubt having dumped all of his meager income on bike upgrades. Don't worry though. Most had the invincibility handkerchief of badassedness covering their mouths desperado style. I was often thankful I wasn't on a train as we would have surely been robbed by these busa bandits. Knowing they would never be caught on those massively powerful machines unless the chosen escape route had curves, potholes, curbs, traffic, or a slight incline forcing them to stall the bike repeatedly from a stop.
Nothing says GANGSTA!!! like parking it in the turns so hard that the my wife's Dodge Journey is pulling away from you.
I really had no point with this other than to gripe.
