After weeks and weeks of bad weather I decided that today was the day to start riding to work. Forecast high temps of 65 with a morning pre-launch temp of around 35. I was a little frozen by the time I got to work but the ride was enjoyable. The only problem I had was getting the shit scared out of me by two different car-chasing dogs. The first one was actually a pair of what looked like pit-bulls. They came into the road and were preparing to give chase but they didnt like the sound of the horn. The second "incident" involved a very fast and determined german shepard. This dog came out of nowhere and was on a collision course, luckily, there was no traffic and I was able to move over and avoid the dog. I probably wasnt as close to him as I thought I was, but it was something I wasnt prepared for. I spent several minutes after the second encounter dreaming about scabbards and shotguns, but then I cooled down.
