You guys are sportbikers or cagers?..... put my shoes on for a minute and feel my pain!!!!
Brian and I did a NECESSARY and ILLEGAL maneuver on our bikes Sunday night riding back from Twin Cities, MN.
Finally jumped on I-90 around the Dell's, knowing there was construction, but not realizing how bad. We soon found out there was a 1.5 - 2 hour delay, cars for miles just sitting on the highway hardly moving forward and cops sitting on the left shoulder to make sure no one breaks any laws. The next exit was miles away and past the construction. We couldn't exit or turn around.
Being already tired from riding hundreds of miles and wanting to get home that night and not the next morning, we decided to RIDE THE RIGHT SHOULDER and just keep looking for cops, whenever we saw them we would just merge back into traffic like nothing happened.
Needless to say the cars stuck on 90 were all pissed and honking at us, but who cares. There is no way I could sit on my bike for 2 hours inching forward for 15-20 miles... that's nuts.
I was worried though that some car would see us coming in their mirrors and cut us off so we couldn't go. Which might result in an accident. Oh well, I would do it again if I needed to. We still got home before 11PM as scheduled
and with our sanity intact.... if there was a message sign BEFORE we entered the highway telling us there was a delay, we would have take another way, but we were stuck and forced to break the law or pull over and camp out on the side of the road untill all the heavy trafic has passed.
