When that little voice in your head speaks...

listen.


Was out riding today , hitting some of the backroads out this way and working on my lean angle / riding position through the twisties. I had been hitting the insides of all the curves , almost to the edge of the road on right handers and almost to the yellow line on the left , I never intentionally try to ride right on the line just in case I pass some woman attempting to drive, when I think " you know , here I am running these at 70-80, I need to just chill. " So i backed off , quit cutting the corners and just riding , and 2 turns later , where I would've been doing 75 easily and cutting into the left hand side of my lane , I crest a left handed hill with an elevation change downward and left , and right there on the other side is a tractor pulling some double wide plow thing. Takes up MORE THAN HALF of my lane and of course every inch plus some of his. No escort vehicle for him anywhere in sight. I don't know if I would've been quick enough to ditch the bike into it and jump over it to take my beating with the landing on the other side , or if I would've just been mangled up with some moo-nure.




I think I'll go pick my daughter up now from the sitter's ( in the car ) and go spend some Q. T.
