I was on SH14 (a two lane hwy.) between Lyle and Bingen today in the cage. I pulled out to pass a slow truck and when I passed over the center stripe it sounded like the car was about to shake apart. I discovered that the Highway Dept. had carved a continuous rumble strip down the middle of the highway. I have never encountered this before. Once the initial shock had passed, I wondered how this will affect motorcycles and especially how it will affect them when the pavement is wet. This same stretch of road has just been given the tar snake "deluxe" treatment, ie the road is covered with them. So now, when passing in the rain or on wet pavement, the motorcycle gets jangled into a epileptic dance AND gets to traverse wet, slippery tar snakes, while made unstable by the rumble strips. Doesn't sound good. Sounds like the perfect recipe for high speed disaster. Has anyone else encountered this roadway nightmare?
