Oh crap! Is that this weekend? That means yet another week that I will not be able to test ride the XR1200R! Every non-rider known to man, will be out there blocking traffic, running lights and wearing their clown outfits! I call it "when the Circus comes to town." They block exit ramps if you are trying to get off. You can have your turn signal on for a 1/4 mile on the hywy and a line of so-called "bikers" will NOT open up a hole for you to get off without pushing them out of the way! I.Q. of a potato! Oblivious to all but the bike in front of them and "looking cool". (you are on a bike for Crist's sake, you will be able to catch up! remember the rules of the road.)
And, we get to "hear" from all of those people that never got enough attention when they were babies revving and belching loud exhaust for no other reason than gaining attention to themselves. Psychiatrists call it the "watch me mommy syndrome." Sad that they were neglected children, not my fault!
Time for some "what NOT to do on a bike stories...
Good time to be a tow truck driver though.;) Lots of bikes broken down on the side of the road.
(Isn't this in September, after the Air-races?) Spring Fling? (another one?:rolleyes:)
