    Glad to hear you're still improving, joeyduck!

    As far as watching the video, that's a tough decision. I think that I would watch it, if only to help fill in the memory gaps.

    For me it's a tie between "passing on a blind hill" and "passing right before a stop sign/red light". It's the MGIF attitude that puts everyone in danger. A little patience goes a long way.

    Good to see that even Western European cities aren't all like Copenhagen.

    This video really reminded me of the current situation in all but a few U.S. cities. But we're getting there! Slowly...

    I had a similar collision a few years back. With that much helmet damage, definitely see a doctor (and get a new helmet!)

    Now to avoid this in the future:

    I've done the same thing as the OP before. I doubt the driver even felt it, and I doubt the wheel was damaged.

    I don't follow so closely at red lights anymore. :)

    I had the same experience with my Gatorskins (700x28, 145lb rider). Give it couple hundred miles and they'll calm down.

    Same situation here. I keep them in a drawer in my desk, but it's rarely hot enough in the morning to require a shower. Usually just a cool down and towel off.

    I rode when it was 98F once (7 miles one way). Not fun at all, especially stopping every mile or so to douse myself with water. Bear in mind, this was with high humidity too. We don't get "dry heat"...

    Another hot day today. Highs in the 90s with lots of humidity. Forecast says a cold front will move through later today and drop temperatures back into the 80s. I hope it's correct!

    I think I gained 5 pounds of water weight on the ride home last night. In hindsight, I should have just waited it out at the office. Some of the lightning was getting close!

    Oil sits on the shelves at the store far longer than 8 weeks. 0w-20 oil also means that it's barely doing anything when cold anyway. I don't think the engine will be hurt.
