…what would you do? I was presented with this situation last night on my way home from the ice rink after hockey. It was very late and I had worked myself to the point of absolute wipeout exhaustion… stopped at a servo to chug a gatorade and hopped on the bike for the short (15 minute or so) ride home. I found myself at 80km/h with a feeling I hadn't experienced for a very long time: The need to expel the contents of my stomach, right now! So I signalled, checked left, and hauled ass through a few lanes to the side of the road where I put down my sidestand and reached for my chinstrap… but the feeling subsided. I waited a couple of minutes to be sure, and got back on the road. I definitely didn't feel well, but I made it home and got into bed. So I escaped without actually puking, but the idea stuck with me: What if I had been in traffic and not able to get to the side of the road quickly? Would I have crashed? What if I had been curled up in a puddle of my own puke laying in the grass and a cop came up, how would I explain it? and most importantly… how would I ever get the smell out of my helmet? So, anyone been there and done that?
