I’m Street-Legal

I must say, the MSF people are really on the ball. Today, I got my completion certificate in the mail. After work, I went over to the DMV, and got the full M1 endorsement to my driver’s license. I may now ride at any time, on any public road, and carry a passanger.

Although, I’m not sure I want to do the latter, yet.

I had a bit of a scary drive into work this morning. I was about halfway to work when I drove into a fog so thick I could only see 100 feet in front of my bike. I was worried that a car would just come straight up my back end without seeing me.

Fortunately, the fog only covered a short bit of the road, and I got out of it in five minutes or so.
