Car drivers do a hell of a lot more than make mistakes. They don't pay attention, they don't fucking care, and some actively commit assault with a 2 ton vehicle.

Not paying attention is making a mistake. And if someone is "actively" assaulting you, get out of the way and call the cops, kicking at their mirror isn't a solution, just an opportunity for them to assault you more..

I folded in a Ram's door panel once when he decided to try to merge right into me. He came up beside me and just started getting over, don't know if he was on the phone or just an asshole, but he got to pay for a new door skin. He jerked it back over and I took the very next left as soon as the center lane island ended.

Killboy failure Dragon Fest

I put a steel toed boot sized ding into a Buick's passenger door at a stoplight. That finally got the cell phone yammering bitch's attention. She had merged me onto the shoulder twice before the boot.

Did you rev your loud pipes first? How about the horn?

And twice? You know the saying about "fooled me once"?

Why did you continue to ride next to her? To macho to "back down" to a bitch in the wrong, even if being right risks your life?

There are factory Bobbers now?

Maybe they'll stop being so proud of them on Craigslist now

Here is a cute girl on a Harley Switchback. Prolly a fail on several counts, but she's riding her own ride, enjoying herself and has good posture.




I'm off to ride... :)
