I'll take rain, freezing temps, a little snow but I hate wind.

I was traveling across UT on I-80 and ran out of gas between SLC and Wendover. The winds were so strong, it killed my MPG. I literally ran out of gas in front of the "Wendoner 20 more miles" mark.

Same thing traveling up I-25 from NM to CO. The crosswinds off the mountains turned over 3 tractors from Pueblo to Colorado Springs. The ride should've been a few hours but turned into half a day because I can only handle riding about 40 MPH on the freeway at a full lean, scraping pegs.
