    Hey, who’s finger is that- haha! Some of the “Junkies” have been around a while and some of us are just a year riding. I spend a lot (too much my wife says) reading and searching. I’m so addicted to the forum and the info. Fun games here like the picture game and word association. You’ll have to find a team or start a “classics” maybe for the picture game. Our Team Orange (tribal) is killin it currently

    @oceansalive Best advice is keep your head on a swivel. Some one once said to ride like they don’t see you so you’re ready when they don’t see you… or something like that anyway. I have been repeatedly crowded as they switch lanes without looking and I usually hit my horn and speed by. I got caught off guard once and got hit on the foot peg. Lucky I didn’t go down. Countless stories out there…

    Oh don’t worry…….I let him know all the time how lucky he is to have me! :-D Funny thing is when he and I go out and about and end up in a bike shop or even when we went to the bike show this year, the salesman always talk to him about the bikes and what he rides or what opinions he has on things pertaining to the bikes and he always says “well I’m new to bikes but my GF here is much more familiar with them and could probally answer that better!” Then they look at me and think they will “humor” us by talking with me and I usually end up showing him that female riders DO know their bikes and/or gear and that we DO have useful imput and knowledge. I’m glad when I come home from a ride he doesn’t say those things to me like some of your spouses say. I’d have to kill him. lol
