On my commute home in the car today...

I passed a couple of bikes in the E. Marginal Napa parking lot waiting to pull out. As they passed me headed for 599, i realized the black Street Triple was riding on steel cords with little to no pressure left. The guy proceeded to ride out to I-5, then off toward seatac at full speed like he still had any tread. What a dumb idea. He's only a couple mm from a catastrophic blowout at freeway speed.

The world is full of stupid. I've learned over the years that you can't save everybody. Some people just have a need to have that shit sort itself out the hard way. Unfortunate but it is what it is.

I was half expecting it to solve itself, and to come upon the aftermath around each corner behind them.
