  • good thing there was a shoulder

    The wife and I went for a ride yesterday and on the way home traveling on a two lane road, some self important ass decided he needed to pass the car in front of them. Good thing there was a shoulder to the right because the car didn't have the room to safely make the pass and would have hit us head on. Also good thing I was looking.

      Dan, I glad you are OK, now find the SOB and do what H8Tank said. You may be saving someone elses life by kicking the driver's a$$

        Would love to beat all of the idiot drivers down I just don't have the stamina to do it.

          Dan, glad you're ok. Beating up bad drivers would be a full time job.

            That's the truth!! Rode to work behind a bike, made sure to be close enough or far enough away for someone trying to pass, wish more people would pay attention, including those on bikes, watch for the bikes, and bikes, try to hold a speed, and watch more than the landscape on a busy 2 lane hi-way...IMO

                  Learning to maneuver a bike is on the TOP list for me but being vigilant and always expecting someone to do something dumb TOPS that one! Glad you are well...

                        Because they are....every day I hate people in automobiles more and more....I've actually got over 20k more miles on 2 wheels than 4....

                        Got pulled in front of this morning, they even hesitated before going for it...actually regretted not having a horn, just bright lighted them, revved it in their ear, and showed them that they were #1....
                        It's not "derailed", as long as the last post relates to the post above it...it's just on a different rail, heading into a more interesting direction

                            Definitely glad you saw it coming...alot of the roads i travel to and from work have no shoulder. I am always watching oncoming traffic just for this reason.
