Yeah, and it doesn't change until you get to San Antonio. Longest 300 miles I've ever traveled.

He's got my vote. And, how 'bout that motorcycle lane put in ALL interstates?? Here in IL we are surrounded by interstate highways: I-88, I-90, I-94, I-294, I-80, I-55, I-57 the llist goes on...

Yeh man, we should have our very own gas stops on the way just for motorcycles every hundred miles. Motorcycle sales will go up man, the economy will rise up, ..[just having some fun] Anyone else have any bright ideas for WingAdmin when he's President...What other cities should we watch out for?

Let's add Baltimore and Washington DC to the list of dangerous places. I even drive a Chevy dually crew cab to work, won't even think of a bike around there. If Wingadmin is elected let's get him appointed to the board at Honda Corp.

Dallas is crazy, but Fort Worth isn't all that bad (getting worse though). I lived in the DFW Metroplex for about 20 years. Houston is crazier to me. I lived there for a while.

Eventually go out and now living in rural Washington. It is great to no longer fear for my life on a daily basis. :D

Life goes at a slower pace in the South? NOT in Atlanta!! Everyone seems to be in a BIG hurry, especially on I-75. They have diamond lanes or "carpooling" lanes for 2 or more passengers. Even at 75,80,90 they tailgate!!! When my daughter or son-in-law picks me up at the airport, I just close my eyes and hang on for the ride home. And that's in a car!!

I think it is the same all over. They do that here in Elkhart, right down the main street. People don't care about motorcycles or bicycles. They think that they have the bigger vehical and we'll move. They pull out in frt. of you and don't care. I had a friend put his Harley down because some non paying att. lady pulled out in frt of him! I have slamed my brakes on more time than I can count. The local police don't do much. The laws for hitting a motorcycle suck too. If you hit a road worker, you'll never see the light of day! But you hit some one on a bike and you get a hand slap! I found a video on FaceBook and You Tube,





I hope this works right. Eveyone should see this.

It's not harsh, it's real. I can't think of anyone who shouldn't see this that is driveing or going to be! Maybe someone that dosent ride or drives differantly in a car will see this. And maybe it might make them a little more awhere, and maybe it is saves the life of someone you know or your own. A chain reaction of sircumstances can make or break anyone. No one is immume!!

When I am in my car I don't want to see a copper, but on my bike I always wonder why there isn't enough coppers on the road. More coppers = win imo.

I think you're on to something there, but if we fight for a cell phone lane , we'd have the whole FWY to ourselves!
