Nod Living inside my helmet.

Lately I've been having to commute during rush hour. It's given me a slightly different look at things.

Yes, I know. Shameless self promotion.

Commuting to work in the heavy traffic is a real PITA, but i find myself wanting to do it again the next morning. Perhaps I have become addicted to that concentration required to avoid accidents in the rush hour traffic.

Interesting take on it. I enjoy the commute home more, maybe because the last 10 to 15 miles are all rural roads, much more than the ride in. But yes, it requires a different type of concentration than the ave Saturday ride does.

Unfortunately. there is no rural component to my commute. I am on the freeway frontage road (3 lanes, one way) the entire route except for one mile. Cars must change lanes continuously to get to their destinations. You can't blink.
On the weekends, the wife and I load the scoots into my pickup and go out to little towns for more relaxed scooting.
