Haven't had anyone yell anything at me, but I did have some kid try to "blow me away" in his mitsu lancer (non turbo/not fun car). I was passing him in a 55 and he started speeding up so I just pulled in behind him. Speed limit was 55 and I was at 67 before he finally lifted. I figured a cop would pull him over before pulling a scooter over. I bet that kid didn't think he'd have a scooter in his rear view the whole time. It's my dads 87ch 150, just got 77mpg. I ride it to work as much as I can (8 miles round trip). I had a R6 in college and I didn't have this much fun on it! I'm all about smaller bikes. People at work joke with me about it and we all have fun with it. It doesn't change who I am and I've got enough self confidence/esteem to allow myself to enjoy it. I just like riding.
