Even the "Stunt Queen of Naperville" cannot deal with this crappy weather.
This means plenty of threatening clouds and WIND.
For those of you in balmier climes, how I envy you.
The other day I rode home from work and I was just buffeted and shoved the entire way. Honestly people, Scootering is a battlefield.
I arrived home, cold and exhausted. I wanted only to take a hot bath and go to bed. But it was POTLUCK night and my friends were already at my house, waiting for dinner.
ARGH! Anyway, the best thing you can do when riding in the wind, is maintain your grip, but stay loose and relaxed and KNOW that the wind is going to push you around. It WILL move you so just let it happen. Don't panic, just deal with it.
Also, do not go out in the wind if you cannot flat foot your scooter. It can knock you over while you are waiting at a stoplight. So please, take care people.
You know the wind is bad when it grabs your full face helmet and tries twist if off your head, like the twist cap on a bottle of soda. NOT REFRESHING!
