Yikes. Looks like an HD. Hope everyone is ok and was wearing gear.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

saw alot of people riding this morning in the rain. i didn't watch the weather so i didn't know it was gonna rain.

i don't ride if it's gonna rain on my way to work.... a wet banana hammock sucks to have

i want to drink, but only to kill a certain few brain cells and i don't care how many i have to take out to get to them.

Ducks? People are fucking stupid sometimes. Hmmmmmm let's see. Should I stop abruptly from 45 mph to allow these ducks to pass and possibly cause a pile up and maybe kill someone? Or should I attempt to slow down gradually and maneuver around them while at the same time slowing traffic in a controlled fashion?

I'll go with stomping on my brakes because people are worth less than animals!!!

Fucking retards.

No idea what KITT stands for, so I'll guess yes.

Only KITT I remember was from Knight Rider back in the day.

Yea the guy was fucking crossing the interstate on foot trying to save some ducks. Thats a whole different ballgame when you pull over on the shoulder to cross the highway. I can understand if its a small child, but ducks?
