Seriously though. It's not. None of the sport bike riders thought you were cool for doing that, I guarantee. They wanted to pass a slower motorist, and instead you wedged yourself in where you were not invited. That was a douche move. If you wanted to try and prove to them just how big your penis is, you could have let them pass and then tried keeping up with them. However, even that is pretty douchie. Ride your own ride. Let them ride theirs.

And I'm sure they did have something to talk about. However, I'm sure their conversation went nothing like how you imagined it would go inside your helmet.

I love these threads with added memes.



I agree with the other guys.

Proper riding etiquette is to let them ride their ride, and you ride yours.

If you did make them blink, it probably went someting like...

Whoa, dude. What are you doing riding that GS two-up on public roadways? With your talent level, you ought to be in MotoGP.

The GS/A is a great bike that's a ton of fun to throw around on a winding road. What it's not is a sportbike, and given equal talent in the seat and a smooth road, a sportbike will steal a GS/A's lunch and sleep with its girlfriend.
Fixt. But that "equal talent in the seat" part can make for a fun diversion on an otherwise vanilla day. Not that we should be doing any of that crazy dangerous shit when a dude on a $40K bike with full race leathers (complete with aero hump) passes you on a straightaway at a buck twenty but you happen to know the road gets all nasty tight bumpy squiggly just over that rise, it being a public road and all. Just as a hypothetical.

That would be wrong. Just say "no".

I had an 1150s try this with me last year. I came up on him really fast on the Busa, and he tried to keep up with me in front. Soon as I had a chance to pass I showed him who's penis was bigger . And that wasn't even a GS.

Yup, giving chase is all fair and good, just returning the favor.

Your real mistake was posting it here. Buncha safety goons. You should post this on a sportsbike forum, you'd be getting virtual high fives all around.

You sped up instead of letting the third one by. How is that different than refusal to yield?
