Wrong Way Traffic

We attacked a roundabout in a similar vigorous fashion one day only to find a confused Grandma coming around the roundabout clockwise instead of counterclockwise. Stood it up in a hurry and was able to sneak by as she exited the circle. I guess she thought there was no need to go 270 when a quick 90 will do.

Sometimes a get off like this is something that keeps us all in check. Have had a few myself.

Glad that you're OK.

Oily Roundabouts

We don't have many roundabouts in the Seattle area, the only one I run occasionally is on the way to my mechanic. I'll be running it a lot easier after reading your story. It's easy to get caught up in the enjoyment of just riding and forget that all sorts of stuff can and does coat the road surface usually resulting in way less traction.

Looks like my ego broke the fall.

it was my understanding that creative over-figurative description, colorful language and pictures are mandatory here. I'm lacking in at least 2 departments so...



and..

clammy wangs!

glad you liked my post even though it was lacking.
