Since I started riding I have become a safer driver, and I wish everyone was required to do some time on a motorcycle.

I know know that stretch of road well, on it all the time.

I was talking to a couple of hunters at the Exxon in Myersville. I told them how to save ammo...all they have to do is drive up and down 40 in their truck! lol

Right! I sometimes I take alt 40 through Boonsboro, that is a target rich environment too.

My days of riding into work are quickly winding down... Besides the critters that are all over the roads, daylight savings time comes at the beginning of November. I've ridden in the dark, but I don't like to, and especially not this time of year. That's when I call it a season (at least for riding back and forth to work). I'll still take it out on a weekend here and there.

Now all I have to do is wait for all the aftermarket people to catch up with the 2010 HD models so I can BUY some stuff and get some winter modding done!!!
