I went through the same thing when I was commuting from san diego all the way to camp pendleton, which added upto 60miles in one day. After my son was born and coming within inches of getting killed it made it clear to me that I love motorcycles but it was not worth it to continue to ride on the street. Its been over two years since I have ridden on the steet. The bike is only a trackday bike and that is more than enought for me. Besides you can push a little harder on the track without having any other variables coming into play.

Yesterday i almost died, so i'm going on the 105 west to my office, splitting the carpool lane. Some piece of S#$T decided to cut the double - DOUBLE yellow lines. well the carpool lane (cars) are going maybe 15-25 mph while the normal lanes are going 0-15mph traffic, i'm going 60 mph and POS cut right as i was passing. i ended up slamming the front brakes, cutting over right as POS is an inch away from me still going to the lane, then i was thinking i'm going to A. rear end this stopped car in front or B. end up clipping the bumper. i managed to barely miss that and now ended up 1 lane over splitting that lane.

Well i stopped and pedaled back to knock out some windows and realized i didn't know which car it was. i know it was a old white truck. there were 2 of them right next to each other and didn't know which one almost killed me. i looked inside both and either of them were paying attention to anything. decided to calm down take a breath and get my ass to work.

Either way this commute is getting old and i'm sick of risking my life to get to work everyday. i guess i'll be caging it in for a while and decide if i'm going track only or non rush hour commuter. either way i just wanted to hear why others decided to go track only.

P.S. for the lane splitting haters. I already know, however if i wanted to sit in traffic i'd drive.
