Finally a day above the single digits or teens. It almost felt like spring. What a great ride.
I wanted say that up front, as I've had some folks question why I ride at all if I have "so many" problems on the road. I love riding and today was a great day on the road.

I had a couple close calls today, only one that warranted a call to police. I have some thoughts on that and about the Elm Grove idiot who told me to ride on the sidewalk, but that will have to wait for another day.
I kind of raced a train today, well I was coasting and just thought it might make a better video than the trailer almost hitting me.

The Brookfield cops from the last incident told me they issued a citation. I still have to get a copy of it to make sure, but the irony is if he fights it, I could be called as a witness by the same prosecutor who told me I have no right to be on the road at all. Probably more likely he would dismiss it or plea bargain it down. We'll see.
