Yes, I’m thinking about summer even though it is currently down pouring in Boston. It was very nice over the weekend and it got me in the mood for sure. I never used to be a summer person – I was always a winter person. I know this sounds stupid, but I think I didn’t like summer because I was always so over-weight and miserable in the summer. Now that I’m a little lighter thanks to my lap-band, I’m liking this warm weather thing.
Anywho, I went a little off topic. Last Friday, driving home from work, sitting in the wonderful traffic of Boston, I saw the first one of the season go by, a whiteliner. Whitelining is when a motorcyclist weaves in and out of traffic so they don’t have to wait like the rest of us.
Now, I am not opposed to motorcycles, hell, my dad is one of the biggest Harley fanatics I know. I’ll have to ask him if he partakes in this concept (Dad, I hope not!). The thing I don’t understand is that this is VERY dangerous not to mention illegal (only in CA is it legal). The other thing is that, aren’t you on a motorcycle to take in the fresh air and sun?? If this is the case, then why are motorcyclist in such a big damn hurry?? It literally drives me nuts when these guys (and girls) pass me in the breakdown lane or in-between two lanes of traffic and just scoot on up right passed all the traffic. Get in line buddy, you don’t think we are all in a hurry to get home??
