So, had planned to ride We'd. & Th. from Littleton, CO to Austin for MotoGP this w/e. Weather forecast for Wed. morning went from beautiful to 4-8" snow. Was helping family move thru Tues. evening, but that finished early, so Carol says "Looks like bad weather Wed. morn; why don't you leave Tuesday and avoid it?". Good idea! Got ahead of the rain and snow to ride to Raton last night. Kept hearing big winds were to come today. Holy crap. From Amarillo to Lubbock, 40-50 mph sustained crosswinds with gusts to 70 mph. Skies were brown and on two occasions it was dark and visibility was 50'. Windshield was so dirty I had to stop at a truck wash to wash the bike to continue. I literally couldn't see. Someone asked for riding techniques. Mine was to tuck as close as possible behind the windscreen to minimize profile and keep the front planted against getting blown out. It looks like a motocrosser. I wouldn't recommend riding in this.
