Terrible cross-winds & 800 bras


Recommended Posts

Bras on the Kaw


Today I HAD to cruise up to Lawrence, Kansas to see 800 bras strung across the Kaw River. No question, I had to see this.


Anyhow, in Kansas you can get into some terrific cross-winds. I was riding K24/40 up the Kaw River valley. The winds were blasting 90 degrees to my side. Anytime I cleared a tree line the wind howling over a 1000 acre field would about blow me off of the highway. I know from what I have read here that some other States have some bad wind problems. Kansas, however has to rate up there with the best (worst) of them.


I read some posts here on how to deal with cross-winds and the info really helped. I never knew to stick my knee out on the windward side. I did that and what a difference! I also rode as loose as I could. That really helped too. I made it! Took a picture. Thanks for the ride tips!

Just don't go to the next picture after the bra shot on the Flikr link. Trust me. Don't do it.

It seems that somewhere in Kansas 1600 uncovered unmentionable body parts must have been flapping in the breeze!
