It is a good image! Please be careful pulling off under an interstate bridge. Too much stuff can happen with big rigs traveling at 65 mph on rain soaked roads mingling with crazy-ass cage drivers.

Thanks Mike, I'm a big proponent for moto safety myself and almost never pull over in rain, but me stopping under the bridge was much safer than continuing to ride with the visibility I had. Hard rain and condensation on the inside of my visor, no bueno! But again, I agree, as a general rule I try to keep as much distance as possible between myself and any 18 wheelers

Oh, I just noticed you're from Plano. You're used to crazy-ass drivers! I was in your "neighborhood" a few weeks ago on my way out to Big Bend.

Man, ain't that the truth?! Hope you enjoyed Big Bend, what an awesome place to ride (and photograph).

My newest favorite from my break-in ride from NC to CA and back . . . .



That was taken on Terlingua Ranch Road in Big Bend.

A good reminder to validate your assumption. Just because what you are seeing fits with your theory doesn’t mean you’re right. It’s always worth taking a step back to assess the situation a bit more even if you think you know what the problem is.


Baby steps are easy for everyone but the baby.
