    Best Feelings/Worst Feelings ever

    So I'm riding along today and finally get to my favorite twisties when I see the first of my extreme feelings for the day. Allow me to list them for you.

    Best Feelings

    1) Seeing the road sign for twisties next 15 miles

    Worst

    1) Seeing the sign next to the previous one that says "Target Enforced Area" ouch

    Best

    2) Seeing that my favorite road is FRESHLY PAVED!!! wooo hoooo

    Worst

    2) Seeing the sign 3/4 of the way down the road that says "uneven pavement" and realizing the road is not quite finished. damn.


    what about you all for things when you ride?

    Best: Day of perfect weather, beautiful roads, and feeling really connected with the bike all day.

    Worst: Hitting that 25mph corner at 60mph and seeing loose rocks in the middle of the lane and having to stand the bike up, stand on the brakes, and hope a tire doesnt wash out as you roll over the loose crap.

    Best: Having a day were everything is clicking just right, nailing a squirl in the middle of a hard corner, and not even panic because you are in the zone.

    Worst: Same idea, only put a moose where the squirl was, and a lot more panic.

    None Bike Related Best: The other night I'm putting my 2 year old to bed. She grabs my face to give me a kiss, and says "Daddy, your a good daddy."

    Bad: This, then crashing that over paid bike a month later due issues in the front end...

    Worse: Sitting on a motorcycle forum 7 months later reading about everyone else, still with no bike, knowing that It'll be another year until you can start looking into getting one.

    Best:
    Learning to ride the track, getting smoother and faster.

    Leaving for an overnight trip riding into the sunset, even if it's on the slab.

    Worst:
    Riding down expressway at 10PM in rain storm on stripped pavement in traffic while tired.

    Realizing I missed spotting a road hazard like a left turning car, etc. and visualizing an accident situation.
