Out of the two, I guess the winter one means a bit more to me. It's when the days start getting longer again. :)
This one the days start getting shorter :'(

Yea, boo shorter days.   LOL

North on US Hwy 191 from Jackson Hole, WY to Moran, WY

The best straight road I've ever traveled on the CBR929RR at the speed limit.

I really enjoy a table for the bike.

Big difference between standing & tinkering and laying on the ground trying to get something finished.

Yes I rode both Saturday and Sunday maybe 120 miles over all.

I just needed to get out on the new ride and couldn't handle it.

After the snowmobile parade of vintage machines in Waconia I made the call to take a ride. It had rained pretty good the night before and the roads were in good shape along the white salt look was gone and they were dry.

Of course as soon as I head out West on 212 it starts raining on me at least half the time on the bike. Sunday was clear and the sun broke out.

I have a feeling I'll be getting some saddle time in this summer.

How does it cause the trip to be prolonged if you are passed?

If you're the first in line at a intersection on your bike. How many times have you slowed down the guy behind you? Like never.
How many times are you waiting for the guy in front of you to get up to speed? Like always.

Not once did I see a scooter or motorcycle hold up the first car behind all the bikes that filtered forward.

I found the traffic patterns in Italy fascinating, how everything just moved along and how no matter your mode of transportation, walking, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, car, truck it just seemed like the smaller mode had the right of way.

Since I just returned from Italy and rented a bike and watched the traffic 'filter' to the front of the row at intersections. It works very well

  • I felt that the drivers over seas actually drive and are aware of there surroundings
  • Mostly scooters cruising the streets in Florence
  • Basic driving courtesy, like if you're in front you have right away
  • If you don't start moving at a green light right away, I will go around you and the person lets the driver in front. No horns, no fingers let's just go
  • I must have passed a hundred car backup from a lane closed and construction. All the scooters and motorcycles just rode around it all not holding anybody up and actually making that line shorter
  • I was in full gear and it was about 100 degrees. Had I needed to wait in that LONG line of traffic in the city I would have passed out

On the ride in this morning I got caught up in traffic on N494 before 394. When stopped all I seen was a big lane for me to pass all these cars and trucks.
