I went to my girlfriends this morning, on the 6 obviously, and came upon some road work. I figured "Shouldn't be to bad, I'll ride through." Well, as I started riding, all I hear is rocks and shit peppering my bike. At this point I'm pretty pissed. I wasn't on the road long, but long enough for it to scratch my undertail and my BRAND NEW tail light. There is little dings everywhere. There was tar or some shit on my tires and rocks fcking everywhere. This is ridiculous. I hate road work!

Same here in NY. county workers paving a road (that didnt need to be paved to begin with) didnt put up signs saying they were paving. Came around a corner and hit wet/soft asphault. Has an inch of shit on my tires and had to pull over and scrap the shit off. Then got bitched at by the workers...

In my beautiful state of PA they take an ass load of money out of my pay check every two weeks and every road they did not pave last year they decided to oil and chip it. They decided this the month i bought my brand new white bike... Not a happy camper myself either..

That sucks! I know what you mean man. WV DOH does not take the time to do a good job on the roads.

Uh, I never said that. Re-read the post. I was pissed because of all the stuff on my tires and how it dinged up my undertail and tail light.

Yeah that happened a few days ago. Scares the shit out of me because you have no idea what's going to happen next.
