Multi-Task Motorcycling

Post by 1CheeseLouise » Fri Feb 03, 2012 5:04 pm

I have never been so distracted ridding a motorcycle as I have been on my Goldwing. Adjust the radio. Set the cruise control. Adjust the headlight elevation. Get rid of that commercial, change the radio station. New speed limit, re-adjust the cruise control. Don't like that music, get another station.Has it gotten colder? Press the Disp button and see the air temperature. Hmm. Check the weather station. Put the gear box in neutral, adjust the ride height and get back in gear.
All this while checking traffic, cross traffic, street signs, going into the passing lane and back. Switch between and high and low beam, turn signal, brake and shift gears. And I don't even have the CB radio, GPS and bluetooth!
What's going to be next? A DVD player?

You forgot to add the parts about checking both mirrors and talking to the passenger on the intercom. Oh yeah, and don't forget the dog that's running across the street chasing the cat. :lol:
