With the recent motorcycle accidents on 95/395, I saw this article on why we panic and how it can be detrimental to those of us who prefer 2 wheels. It's from the SV forum, but I thought it was informative. And if it helps someone avoid an accident, all the better!

You just need to always know where your towel is.

I second that statement... use it as a tagline for my organization. Also don't fear the Black Swan and Chicken Little was right... what is your plan?

Try to keep it light when I give the bad news... daily.

On a more cheerful note, I wanted to provide an update on more Northwest dreary weather. I'm sure that spring is sparkling back there, and just wanted ALCON to see how crummy it remains on this coast.

Took the /5 to Port Townsend today. Just a ride for lunch--quite the thing to do when you're retired . . .

Point Hudson, overlooking Admiralty Strait/Puget Sound.

North Cascades in the background.



Another way to enjoy the area back there . . . .



Mt Baker

SW, your urban photos are awesome; catches the spirit of your bike so well against the lines and angles of the city's forest . . . .
