Reading this thread, I keep being reminded of the "heirarchy of hating*" I once heard in a video about off-road recreation. It is thus:

Hikers hate on Horseback riders,
who hate on Dirtbikes,
who hate on 4X4s.

However, purist bicyclists (for whom pedaling is the end all, be all, of hobbies) seem to dislike all the above. Not sure how unflattering spandex and odd shoes make one superior in a meaningful way.


*as in, to hate upon. like the expression, 'haters gonna hate'

BMW cagers have been the biggest douchebags, in my experience. Porsche Cayenne and Volvo drivers are tied for second.

I figured this would be an interesting footnote in our "discussion"....

Apparently cheaters prefer Audi

Does your significant other drive an Audi? If so, you may want to watch out.
A recent survey by Illicit Encounters, a UK-based dating website for married people looking to cheat, found that Audi is the most popular car make among its members. Of the 800,000 members surveyed, 22 percent said they drive Audis.
BMW, Mercedes Benz and Volvo were ranked second, third and fourth most popular, respectively, and Volkswagen rounded out the top five.
This isn't the first survey to uncover cheaters' favorite things: earlier this year, Ashley Madison, another dating site for married cheaters, found that most of its female members prefer to shop at Banana Republic. And in yet another poll, Ashley Madison looked into cheaters' dining preferences.

I think you can amalgate all of the suggestions into one driver. That of a Dodge Ram. Or Dodge anything for that matter. Or that gangsta Chrysler 300. Don't get me started.

I'm going to put a window washer on the bike and aim it to the side for ignorant bicyclers. And pee in the reservoir.

Brilliant! Why didn't I think of that? Oh, wait, I think I've already answered my own question!

I have seen this sentiment a bunch on this thread, and it is not accurate. A "douche" generally thinks of himself as cool, or at least is in denial about not being cool. Soccer moms in SUVs, like dads in minivans, are aware of their uncool status as nearly-enslaved pro bono taxi drivers.

I used to drive an old beater, and for some reason, the window washer had some serious pressure and would spray 10 ft over the car. I strategically turned the passenger side nozzle to the right. It worked great! I never thought of putting one on the bike though.

If they are in a 'cage' they are an imminent threat to you're safety...... Cyclists come a close second.... Seem totally oblivious to other road users...strange when you realise how vulnerable they are.. This is of course a complete generalisation....
As a gs riding, BMW x5 owning, pickup driving basket case, I clearly have only my self to blame...
