crosswinds and taillights




Went out for a short ride last night. Battled some good crosswinds and interstate traffic. The SECA gets tossed around pretty good but it also recovers from blasts easily. I had to get into a full tuck at a few points to minimize the effects and it seemed to help.

The air was chilly but my hi-viz jacket (TourMaster Transition 2) did great. I'll have to post a pic of it but be warned it's bright enough to see from space. Which means, drivers still won't see me but they'll end up with a spot in their vision like when you stare at the sun. My boots should be here today (Joe Rocket Sonic WP) and my pants (AGV Telluride) will arrive some time in the future. I'll try to post a few reviews if I get the chance.

Ride safe and watch the low sun-angles.

Sunset is my least favorite time of the day. Always has been and it definitely isn't fun riding at that time.

Yeah, what, DirtCrashr said.
Keep your eyes open because the cagers ain't gonna be watching for you.

Always ride like they're trying to kill you, seems like some of them are!
