I woke up this morning and no one was home so I decided to take a ride and get breakfast. It was a beautiful morning so I jumped on the bike and headed up Route 1 into NJ. A few observations.
- If anyone is looking to invest in a business I suggest a diner on the northbound side of Route 1. Seriously! I rode from Fairless Hills PA to East Brunswick NJ and there are NO diners on the northbound side of Route 1. When I got to Route 18 I exited and rode several more miles past the Brunswick Square Mall until I finally found a diner.
- I know that you guys in Jersey pay a lot in taxes (I used to live there and know first hand). If I were you I'd complain much louder about your roads. Route 1 and Route 18 are probably the two worst roads I've ever ridden. I was bounced out of my seat more times than I can count and hit a couple of bumps so hard I want to go to the Honda dealer and have my front end looked at!
- (This may be offensive to some but it has to be said). I always assumed they must have motorcycles in India. I'm starting to think that may not be true. I was cut off and pulled out in front of more times in my almost 100 mile ride this morning than ever before. When I'd see the driver most times they represented the immigrant nationality you see most in New Jersey (again, sorry to offend). FRUSTRATING!
- Your female toll collectors on the NJ Turnpike love bikes! I thought the girl might jump on the back and ride home with me.
