I love that Southpark episode!
Just like people, there are all kinds of bike riders, some are nice, then all people want to remember is the jerks.
Like you, I can't stand to see those that break all laws they want, it doesn't apply to them, I guess. Even if I am in the desert I put on my blinker,
mostly that's my OCD, but I do, I am trained. I am guilty of speeding sometimes though, I don't rack the pipes at all.
Please still "Share the Road" though, not all biker riders are jerks.
I used to be in a bike group of 200 members, not a club, but a group, there were all kinds in there, a lot of very nice people, and of course, idiots.
Another guy and I started it back in 2002 and it lasted a few years, but I got out due to the ' week-end bad asses' and that kind of idjit. It got to
where I hated to see leather, they were all 'manly' and although they may be a lawyer or an insurance adjuster during the week, on the week-end they
were bad to the bone.
I got out of that and never looked back on those types. Not to say that all groups are like that, or people, but I had just had my fill of
One more thing, even though I rode, I remember a couple of times that I almost turned into a bike rider on the highway because they were in my blind
spot. Had I hit either it would've been both of our faults, he should've not been in a blind spot, and I should've looked better.
The look they gave me though I knew what they were thinking, and I deserved it, but, stuff happens, I try my best, but sometimes that isn't enough.
