If yah wanna know the weather in Oregon, look out the window. If you can see the sun, that means it's gonna rain. If yah can't see the sun, it's already rainin .

Fog does suck,
Don't matter where your riding.

That Seafog rolling in from the coast is the worst kind.
So thick 'ya can't see the front tire

Sucks at 3am.

Most Motorcycle injuries are caused by "The Nut"
That connects the handlebars to the seat.

Yep was heavy fog on ride to work... just keep the speed up and it splits the fog

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

don't fell too sorry for you lol

I'm looking out my window at 4 feet of snow. Won't be riding untill April. But not complaining too much. It's great in the summer in Northern MN. I just hate looking at my bike sitting in the garage for months.
You all ride safe.

I had to do it a couple of times, the only thing I could think of to keep me somehow visible is to turn on the blinkers once to the left and once to the right. Sucks we don't have the Hazard four way flasher
