Anyone commuting into San Francisco this morning probably got caught up in the spectacle that was the tractor trailer on fire on the Bay Bridge. As you can imagine traffic was worse than the already normal Monday morning commute. Fortunately, I was on my bike and got spared the brunt of this mess. As I'm splitting lanes on the bridge where the cars are at a virtual stand still and bumper to bumper, another cyclist behind me starts revving his motor VERY LOUD. He's obviously got after market pipes by the sound of his exhaust. I realize I'm going too slow for him and he wants me to move over for him, but because the cars are stopped and bumper to bumper, there's nowhere for me to stop. The entire time I'm waiting for a spot to open up between cars he's hitting his throttle. I finally find a spot and I can move over. As he speeds by, he's nailing his throttle as he moves along the lanes of stopped traffic, and I mean nailing it, like redline nailing it. I know if I was in one of those cars stuck in that traffic on a Monday morning and a guy goes by on a bike making all that noise, I would be pissed and want to "close the gap" on the next bike I saw coming. Ok, rant over. Whew!
