I HATE Traffic... argh
 
So one of the reasons I bought my 750 was to use it to commute to work. There are two, sometimes three crappy intersections that are part of the 23 mile drive/ride. Thus far I've done it twice. I never really noticed the stop and go traffic from inside my car, other than with a sprinkle of impatience. But sitting in a line for a light on two wheels, in full gear... feathering the clutch in 1st.... balancing... maybe making it to 2nd, only to have to down shift again and wait some more.... roll... stop... roll... stop... get funny look from dude in pickup truck to your left... I HATE IT. :mad: Once I finally get going it's all right, but MAN!!

Today it was 68 degrees. This will be horrendous when it's over 90.

The exhaust fumes from all the cagers are nice too! Diesels are the best!

Yeah. Yesterday, I had an 18 wheeler pull into the left turn lane, only to whip back into my lane just as I started to pass by him. Emergency braking practice 101. Fortunately, I was warmed up by that point since not five minutes earlier, I had a woman in a Mustang (they don't have to follow the rules of the road, do they?) go straight from the left-turn-only lane and nearly put me into the ditch. More emergency braking practice...
