Altercation with a cager.

02/21/07 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
This happened about a week ago and I'm going to go ahead and write about this now. I have had many incidences in the past with people who don't see me and they try to merge into my lane. I can somewhat forgive that, because they aren't really looking… more »
 

I love kids. "IT'S A MOTORCYCLE!!!"

02/13/07 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
There are special moments while on my motorcycle that you just can't get in a car. Cruising out of my neighborhood on my way to work today, I suddenly hear, "IT'S A MOTORCYCLE!!!!!!". I look over, and sure enough there's about 3-4 kids in a yard and t… more »
 

Augusta State University tickets my motorcycle, again.

02/13/07 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
As we all may know, yours truly is a college student. The local uni here has motorcycle only spots on campus that is reserved for bikers. This is a good thing as generally speaking, most of the spots are pretty close to where I have class. Now, last s… more »
 

Mr. Gaping Abyss who lies in wait....

01/06/07 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
There's a red light near my place of employment that is a pretty busy intersection regardless of what time of day or night it is. Well a few days ago we were unable to make right hand turns via the turn lane as it was completely ripped up by about 3-4… more »
 

People not caring about the police or truckers

01/06/07 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
I'm cruising to work this afternoon. It's very nice outside, sunny, slightly cool breeze and it's in the middle of winter. I love living in the south as compared to the north. Hawaii takes the cake for the best weather though. Anway, back on topic! more »
 

People trying to prove something....?

It's been a while.

11/16/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
Sorry for not posting in here very much the last few weeks. I've been a very busy individual lately. I can't recall any tard moments I may have seen aside from a minivan taking a turn and pulling a 3 point turn on a double yellow right after an inters… more »
 

Idiots who can't park!

10/30/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
I'm getting tired of seeing cagers who think they are so special they either A) Park their whole vehicle intentionally across multiple parking spots because they think their vehicle is just sooo cool that it would just be like, "OMG SOMEONE SCRATCHED… more »

*Shivers*

10/02/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
Well it definitely isn't summer anymore. The mornings are refreshingly cool if you are walking around outside but dang if I don't freeze my butt off on the way to class/work in the mornings now. So, I've had enough. more »

A Campus Parking Citation? What?!

09/19/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
So there I was on friday. Coming out of class and walking up to my bike with Sarah in tow. What is this piece of paper attached to my seat? Was it a note from Sarah? Nope. It was a parking citation! Failure to display current decal (even though it'… more »
 

An unexpected passenger

09/19/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
I normally warm up my bike with the choke on outside in the mornings and go back in and gear up as it takes a few moments. Well, as I was leaving my street I glanced down at the base of my windshield and what I saw made me laugh. more »
 

What is that sound?! OH MY! It's coming from the motorcycle that I almost ran into!

09/19/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
I'd like to start this out by stating that as a cager I rarely use my horn. I believe I've used my horn less than 5 times in 7 years of driving. Now, in less than 2 months, I have used my motorcycle horn TWICE. more »
 

Haha!!!

Scary Moment.

09/03/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
I am always alert on my bike. It's one of the only times I am fully focused on my current task. Scan, identify possible hazard, predict possiblities, always have an escape plan, and keep track of where people are on the road in proximity to you becaus… more »

This morning I perform my pre-ride check to make sure I have everything. I'm only going to work so I need to have my badge and my muffies. Muffies go over my headphones to cushion them. more »
 

Would you like a T-Bone or a side-swipe w/ your daily commute?

08/25/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
I'm always faced with dealing with other people on the road. I'm not just talking about your tailgaters or little old grannie who is driving 5-10 miles below the speed limit hunched over her wheel. I'm going to explain what happened to me today. more »
 

I <3 Motorcycle Only Spots!

08/23/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
It's a change of pace to be waking up and going to school. I remember how competitive it is acquiring a parking space is at ASU. This is confirmed by listening to Sarah tell me how it took her 7 minutes to find a spot today and she ended up being lat… more »
 

I'm going to get some gas....

Give a mouse a cookie and he'll want some milk... or so I've learned recently from a children's book I never read as a kid. Sarah thinks I've had a deprived childhood. more »

Motorcycle Cops Do Wave, Woo Hoo!

08/07/06 | by Mikey | Categories: Motorcycle, Commuting
I was on my way to work this A.M when a county cop riding a bike came out of nowhere. It was after Gate 1 so he had to have made a left and made it up to me. I saw him about half a mile back. more »
