Trust me...we had the same idea....as have our forebears....f or many cycles...they just wont...we had classes...just like the folks on the dragon, try...fail :) Some things....no chance :)

The truck's mirror is over the centerline as is most of the rider's bike and body.

Until I went to work at a forensic mental health hospital I never knew that somebody made a machine to safely scrub shit off the wall.Just never knew it was that much of a problem

Had a Harley rider about take the mirror off my truck on Rt 50 the other day.
He wasn't leaning nearly that far tho.

I would have been pissed, those mirrors ain't cheap. I'm sure his beanie helmet would have saved him tho

What does that say about the typical rider who hangs out at "the Gap"?

I disagree, regardless the truck is as centered in the lane as it can be...I don't see what the truck is doing wrong however the bikers body is well over the line. Not as bad as if the tires were over but still not a good situation..

I'm not stating that the truck is in the wrong. I'm stating that two things can't occupy the same space at the same time.
