1st this morning, I'm warming up my bike when I see that coolant leak again. Turns out the bottom radiator hose is loose, both clamps are only finger tight. (Check yours) well I correct that prob. And head out to work. Being that its rush hour I fig. I'd try a different route today, as I'm tring to determin if the blue bike that just passed by me on the left lane is a VTX or not I see this car almost hit the bike. Apearently the driver needed to make a left at the upcoming intersection and had to merg thru 2 lanes of traffic almost bringing the rider down. Well I finally get on I 355 @ 55th st and head north. I'm doing about 65 along with all of the other traffic when a mustang doing about 90 cuts me off, jumps in my lane about 5 ft. Ahead of me. Well a bit later on 294 this ford escape obviously not seeing me jumps in front of me without signaling. I sound the horn and she hits the breaks. So I had to swerve. I pull up next to her and she mouths off an appoligy. A few miles later a semi on the next lane picks up what appears to be a tree branch about 4 ft long with its tires and sends that thing flying towards me. Well now I'm at work, and to make things from bad to horrible., the train ahead of me (Metra) just hit a kid on a bike playing on the tracks. This day blows. sorry for the rant.
