Too damn funny.

Took I90 home last night from work about 11:45pm. About halfway to Janesville the velcro strap on the pants leg came undone. Real close to teh new weigh station so I pulled the bike in there, got off retied my shoe (felt loose again. damn cheap laces) redid the velcro closure, got back on and headed up the onramp.

Heres where it gets funny.

Just as I get to the merge lane at about 75mph, everyone all of a sudden slows to 65. So I merge in and slow to 65-70 indicated and stick in the right lane. NO ONE WOULD PASS ME. For the next 3 miles to my exit I was leading a parade of cars doing 65mph in BOTH lanes. No one would even come up next to me. I guess they thought I was a trooper on a bike coming out of the weigh station.
