Nothing really bad happened. It was just one of those days. I got up at 5:00 to go for a run, showered, putzed around the house, and went for a two hour ride. Well, it was a little chilly and I was a tad underdressed. I was tired from getting up early. My whole body felt sore from the get go, from my neck on down. Then there was road construction everywhere, traffic was a nightmare on all the good roads. And I just couldn't seem to concentrate as well as I normally do. So I cut it short, came home, and babysat my two year old while outside the sun came out and it warmed up. On the flip side, at least I didn't have to work! Thanks for listening to my rant about something as insignificant as a motorcycle ride. Sorry for offending anyone with more pressing issues.

I wouldn't be so paranoid if you all weren't out to get me.

Hey man, I hear ya. Woke up this morning around 7:30. Got dressed to go riding with friends, met up with them, everything going great, then i have to pass a car on a double yellow line, usually no big deal but an unmarked car behind me, busted! My day was crap to. I'm sure you didn't offend anyone.

Better to be a racer for a moment than a spectator for a lifetime.

Sorry to hear about your day Scotty. I believe that sometimes someone is trying to tell us something when we have days like that. Perhaps staying home today kept you out of trouble in some way.

Hang in there, better riding days are coming!

I was with Kornkid, got a ticket too. Afterwards I even hit a big old chunck of wood, hurling it at him behind me. All in all it was a good day though. Nice riding, nice weather.

Dude, you have got to move to a warmer climate
It's 103 here and no rain. Winter starts and ends in February. Well not really, but close

Korn Kid and Colin, Ya'll should know better than that! Volusia County has the WORST cops, and they are not forgiving. Check your mirrors better next time, You'll thank me for it!

95% of Harley Davidsons are still on the road today,
5% actually made it home!

Sorry about your day, but I can understand. Got up a bit early myself and was out of the house at around 7:30 to try to get some riding in before I had to deal with the rest of the day. It was pretty cold, even in my cordura jacket (left the liner out; it is August!). Finally it was just beginning to get too misty out, so I turned around and went home.

Did spend the rest of the day with the kids, which is a plus. And polished the bike a bit, which doesn't hurt either...

I can relate to crappy days like that. I usually figure when it happens, it's a sign to go home. The one and only time I didn't pay attention to a "sign" or "funny feeling" like that, I had a little get-off, so when in doubt, I go home now. But yesterday, it was nice outside here and I was working.

I had a bit of an off ride on Sunday too. I'm not sure why, but out of a total of 15 hearty waves to fellow riders... I might have gotten 3 returned. I don't mind the occasional Harley snub... but fellow sportbike riders? I'm not sure what this world is coming too.... maybe it was just a bad week.

It was in Orange County, and the cop was in an unmarked F-150
