I agree -W1LL; you can never be too ready to climb on a bike. My first trip on a bike was in 5th grade when a buddy brought his bro's new purchase
over to ride at over 75 in a small suburban neighborhood...next was in HS when a buddy went 130 on a Ninja 1100 and blew 2 stop signs in a small
neighborhood. My pops showed me the proper way to ride after not letting me on a bike until I was 18. He got me on an 1100 as I said, but my bike
was a Suziki 850. After doing thousands of turns in the driveway and cul-de-sac, I got on one of my dad's wife's chiefs (I think a 600) and after
two times, passed the test - I can't understand why I failed the first time - but I hope they were that hard on all... jerks on bikes are just
Speaking of, this weekend, coming home on a Sunday after camping all weekend, cruising on a 65 mph freeway (C-470) some tough guy biker was in the
fast lane as I was coming up behind him. Now I was going 75, but I had been going 85 due to the light traffic and general speed of all traffic.
There was no one infront of this tatooed tough guy on his new Harley, and no one to the side of him.
As I always do, I slowed considerably a long time before I approched 20 feet of this guy. He never moved and we drove for five minutes like that. I
eventually went to the slow lane and passed - as I did he flipped me off and sped up, so eventually I got to the next car in my lane and couldn't
I got back in the fast lane and he just kept braking - I'm thinking -let this go - this guy is nuts! So I get in the slow lane again after passin
the next car and he cuts in front of me! I go to the fast lane - again! I'm thinking, this guy wants to die! I am just driving and because I want
to pass, he is pissed. When I pull of my lane He pulls up both hands and gives me the double bird...I'm thinking to myself - this guy got a bike
last week...what a moron..
