    agree. I try to travel this way as much as I can. The trip is going to take YOU no matter how hard you try....

    unfortunately, it's not always possible.

    :clap

    I've always been baffled by pirates and squids, they turn riding into an act of frustration by trying to maintain a parade formation or fast pace at times and in places that are beyond reason, without consideration for the rest of the world..

    A faking men. well said.

    yeah my dad always used to say that when we were traveling and it always annoyed me as a kid (as good advice usually does) until the lightbulb goes on and you realize the old man was (always) right.

    It's especially true if you've ever been anywhere in Asia.

    If it was to the point where I was so frustrated that I felt the need to pass someone on the inside in their lane. I'd relish the opportunity to have words with them later.

    The worst fucking group of riders I have ever had the misfortune to ride with.:boid
    [​IMG]


    My sisters started to ride a few years back and were "well trained" buy these fuckers......the FAT peice of shit in particular.(who just had to have his shit sounding stereo on his hardley cranked in the hotel parking lot)
    I rode with my sisters a cpl times (they lived about 6 hours away) and was SHOCKED how close they rode to me in town , on the hi-way, in heavy or light traffic they stayed withing 5 feet of me:huh. They were both very tense in their riding position and looked very uncomfortable....and worried. When we stoped I told them they were wayyy too close. "But George says we need to stay really close as not to get seperated or cars between us"

    [​IMG]

    SO anyhow...fast foreward a year and they come through town the first day of a 2 week ride.(the above pictures)
    I was going to follow them for a 60k section then hit the dirt and make my way back home(the SE is mine).
    After about 40 k I realized that someone is going to get killed the way they are riding and I booked off early.
    The stupidest fucking thing they did was to pass a huge line of traffic (cars, trucks and semis) over a short period at arround 145- 160kph (limit is 90k). This 2 lane road opens to 4 lane shortly after and regular traffic usuall boot's up to 120 to pass everyone but everyone stays in the same position. Well these shitheads get into the 4 lane and all of a sudden slow right down to about 5kph and try to have a conversation between them. Meanwhile my sisters start wobbling and weaving all over the the road not knowing what the hell to do ....I didn't even know what the hell to do because surley there must be something seriously wrong fore someone to be doing this:huh
    I look back and hear comes the traffic just fucking flying. I yelled to them to get the fuck going and they finally did but slow enough to cause havoc in the 2 lanes of traffic coming up behind us.
    I was amazed that no one got killed on that 2 week ride. My 1 sister said fuck it on the 2 day with them and "rode her own ride" for 2 weeks.

    In my younger days I had a overdeveloped sense of adventure, an underdeveloped sense of judgment/self preservation, and made several unusual choices.

    I would say......freak. :nod

    What the fuck is wrong with people? :huh

    People that do crap like that simply amaze the hell out of me.

    Had a strange situation happen to me one time on a nice twisty road. A guy on a Gixxer got up closely behind me on my DS bike. I was just cruising along at an easy pace so at the first place I was able, I slowed to about 15mph , pulled to the shoulder and tried to wave him by. He did not pass and instead slowed down and followed me to the shoulder. I tried several more times to get him to pass. He would slow down each time and get behind me. When I would pull away he would wheelie until he was right up on my ass and then would flash his high beams at me. After 3 or 4 times of this bullshit I quickly ripped to the right side of the lane and got on the brakes hard so that he was next to me. I threw up the " WTF?!" hands and got an ADV solute (accompanied by flailing angry hands) in return. He then got behind me AGAIN and started doing the Formula 1 tire warm up swerve about 3 feet from my fender. On the next right hander I went off into the dirt, dropped down into 3rd ,dumped the clutch and pinned the living dogshit out of my bike. The Trakmaster II through a spectacular roost of mud and grass all over him. At the next pull off I pulled over and invited him to do the same....He continued on without even look in my direction as he passed. I wouldn't normally fuck with another rider but this was a special situation. I will never know what the hell was wrong with the dude but I am sure that screwing with a plated dirt bike is now low on his to-do list.
