1: The warning about not exceeding 40 kph is especially relevant when you're hauling 60 pounds of textbooks. I felt like an inch-worm on fast-forward and speed when I was barelling down Edworthy Park Road.
2: Trackstanding is impossible and not recommended in traffic.
3: Tight spaces become really tight when the length of your bike is 50% longer than usual.
4: B.O.B. is awesome
Today, I hit the Rona in Westhills to get some painting supplies with B.O.B. in tow. I was definetly quite the contrast to the dudes pulling up in their Chevy Crapalanches just to buy a pack of assorted sandpaper.
I thought I'd rub it in further to all the lemmings in this souless outlet mall I call hell, by hitting the liquor store on my way through and buying a case of Kokanee and then zipping past the gridlocked traffic. I really wanted to crack one of those Kokanees in the parking lot and chug it as I rode past everyone, but I figured it was torture enough to be stuck in your car while the person in front of you is waiting for that perfect parking spot 30 feet from the store they want to get into.
