...it would be a good idea to complain to the city and state. It couuld use some kind of marking etc, paint the thing yellow if nothing else.

I'm not new to town, but if you would open your eyes next time and look at the road you are on, you would know the difference. I want you to bring the TITLE to your bike, a pen and the bike too and meet me in that area. When you go NORTH on 59 from Kirby, the first freeway ramp to right is to SH288, you will continue and go down the incline to the median that you are talking about. You can continue on to the right which is still 59N and when you curve to the left, you are going to be on 288 North. SH288 ends as soon as you get on either ramp and then merge onto I-45. But until you actually get onto I-45, you will still be on 288. You got any money to bring with you too.

So quit saying 59N splits into I-45; they do not. 59 splits into 288, then 288 splits into 45. Ye who has lived here forever and a day.

288 ends at 59 then you can exit 59 to 45 north or south.

where??? He said exit and I asked why going at a speed higher than advised on yellow sign. He said it wasn't an exit and was travelling as posted. I asked just to be clear, you were going from freeway to freeway and not a true exit. then this whole discussion about where he was exactly started. it went from just pass "just" Kirby, to 3 miles passed Kirby, to merging from 59N to 45 (which doesn't exists), to where we are now. So post the condecending comments I made. Other people are watching the posts too, and because they don't make a comment doesn't mean they are not wondering what/how/where the he talking about that the crashed occurred.

Lets see 45 a month for cruiser, 212 for sportbike..not even Litre.
I OWN 4 sportbikes and my TOTAL monthly payment for all of them is less than 200 dollars a month for full coverage through usaa.
