Good to see traffic has improved! Here's what it used to be like in Saigon:

I've spent 55 minutes traveling 15 miles in New Jersey - every freakin' day! Oh, sometimes on a Saturday I could make it in 45 minutes.

27 mile commute is usually 1 hr in the morning and 1 1/2 hrs in the afternoon.

I've found a 46 mile route that runs just over an hour each way, has very few stops, takes me on the Express (HOT) lanes, and a nice winding country road for about half of it, and that is what I normally take when I ride the bike to work.

Although I had one morning that there was an accident in the express lanes that I didn't find out about until I was in the express lanes with no exit. That took over 2 hrs to get to work.

The 46 mile route is a hell of a-lot better for your engine.

It's a hell of a lot better for my sanity too.

It's also why I have put over 12,000 miles on my bike in 9 months.

What's that thing he's dragging across the other car's roof. Looks like a real "hum job" to me.

That's on the Harley. Hydraulic lifters no adjustments.
