To get back to the original poster's story. If someone flips me the bird out of the blue I will certainly not take it lightly. I do not believe anyone has the right to make a profane gesture to someone else by virtue of some sticker they have in their vehicle. Goofing around camping, or riding with your mates is a different story. If someone flips me off without identifying themselves, I will give them a whipping.

My feeling is, that if you go to the effort to buy and apply the sticker, then you need to accept what comes along with having the sticker. A nice friendly salute. If you don't want stranger's saluting you, then don't put the sticker on.

Since you have to ask, you are not ready. You will know when you are ready -- it will be an epiphaphy of mild religious proportions -- and thereafter you will not have to ask for permission to use an ADV sticker.

I neglected to mention that I go around putting "ADV" and "FYYFF" sticker on people's bikes just so FF's like us will salute them.

If your going to put stickers on other peoples bike might I suggest a nice rainbow flag sticker instead. Not that I have ever done anything like that before.

Thank you, Master Yoda...

Seriously though, thanks for the clarifications, folks. I'll have to look into getting a sticker, actually paying money so that people will flip me off.

You've obviously got some personal issues, dude. I hope that if you physically assualt someone just for flipping you off that appropriate charges are filed and that you're convicted and do some time. How old are you, 12? It's pretty obvious that you're not an adult.

(But I'll cut you some slack if this is just Internet bravado.)

That's kinda how I'm looking at it. I have the sticker ready to go. I'm just waiting for something I deem worthy.

400 posts in Jo Momma should do.
