Well, 3 days of commuting and I'm still alive.

I need to get a cooler jacket though. This one is waterproof, but way too warm if I'm not moving. I think that I'll stop in at the shop on the way home tomorrow and see what they have.

Top speed so far is 70 MPH. The scary part was that this was in a 50 zone (SR99) I was getting passed a lot. I was just trying to keep up so I didn't get run over. Crazy drivers.

Oh yeah, and almost every biker waves or nods. I'm part of a secret society now :D

Have you learned the little two fingers down wave yet? Biker friends of mine were telling me about it. I had never noticed it before I started looking.

You have to be riding a Harley to do that wave, or at least a crusier of some sort. I have a sport bike, so I'm supposed to do this little wave where I bring the fingers of my left hand up so I never let go of the handlebars, cause, like, I'm going way too fast to do anything like that ;)

Dude, J almost freakin' SALUTES. When he took his hand off the bike, I said, "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING??" but the other guy did, too, and I blinkblinkblinked. Mom says it's required. I had no idea.
