Need a kick in the pants

I want to go for a ride. But thinking about the Friday commute time traffic on John Daly Blvd is making me wary. Need a friendly kick in the butt.

Maybe you could take a trip to namby-pamby land and find what you're looking for, there.

Hitch up your skirt, son, and get out the door.

That's the best time to ride. Cars crawling means they won't hit you going very fast.

personally I think if you need a kick in the pants perhaps its time for a day off. GO have dinner and a beer instead.

"Why don't you sell your bike, if you're not going to ride it?" - that gets me out of the door, thinking what it would be like if i don't have my bike anymore.

Perfect, now you should be well rested for a hammerfest this morning. Have fun.
