I just got back from my first really long trip on a moped, it was an approx. 100 km. round trip, to my nana's house and back. Yesterday the wind was blowing so hard, and I mean hard, it almost blew me right off the road. I was leaning left in order to stay on the road and once a big bus came up behind me and passed real close, and it created an enormous sideways force that pushed me so close the front wheel came 3/4 of an inch from the edge of the road! I have to question the good judgement of a lot of car drivers who pass on the solid when there's a car coming in the other lane. Then again, it must suck being stuck behind a moped. On the way back a school bus passed me going down this really steep hill with no shoulders right before a bridge and a sharp corner so if a car was coming the other way, there's no way he could have avoided it. The moped didn't give me any trouble except almost stalling on some hills because of the strong wind. That and the home made rear brake cable broke when I tried to do a donut at my nana's house. People didn't believe me when I told them where i'd driven from . Why not, it's only half as fast as a car?
