I wish I shared your enthusiasm when I first got on the freeway. I had been riding for about a month, and I ACCIDENTALLY got into the merge lane onto the freeway. I was doing about 30 mph. I saw all of the cars, trucks, vans, 18 wheelers, and froze up
Talk about scared. I didn't know whether to "shit or go blind"
Well, as soon as I approached the next exit (about 1/4 of a mile down the freeway) I got off. I pulled into a gas station and parked for about 15 minutes. I was just so happy to be alive!!!!!
After about another 2 weeks of riding, I PURPOSELY got on the freeway and loved it. Although, I don't like it as much as the twisty country roads. I wish Missouri had lanes designated just for motorcycles. It is hard to tell what some of these crazy, drunk, cell phone talking, McDonalds eating, hair combing, ritalin taking cage drivers are up to
They are the ones who scare the shit out of me. But, when the freeways are clear of traffic (about midnight), I love to ride on them.
Take care, and ride safe
