    I know you two clowns were just having a good time racing thru the curves south of Walnut Hill. And I admit I was just cruising along enjoying the great weather and good road and hadn't checked my rearview for a few seconds. But when you two knuckleheads passed me and the two vehicles in front of me in a no passing zone with oncoming traffic, you scared the shit out of me and the other four vehicles in the area.
    If you crazy fuckers would have crashed or caused a crash of the others in traffic you would have ruined the rest of my ride.
    I can appreciate spirited riding, used to do it myself when I was young and ten feet tall and bulletproof and had balls as big as cantaloupe.
    However that maneuver today was dangerous and shit like that makes the rest of us riders look bad.
    ferfucksake would ya save the dangerous shenanigans for clear roads!

    Sadly, the same happened here this week, but with disastrous results... Prayers for the fellow and the families involved.

    Were this BARF this would've been relegated to M4MM status.

    BARF = Bay Area Riders Forum (http://bayarearidersforum.com/forums/)

    Typically when someone posts a rant about other bikers the thread quickly devolves into a personals add (eg: M4M etc...).

    Sorry to hear that your mellow got spoiled and I can't blame you as I've been there also. But I have a bit of a different take on the part if they had caused their own demise. It would simply mean that there are two less :asshat out there to give the rest of us who for the most part follow the guide lines of the road a bad rep. Maybe if enough of them do themselves in others will pick up on the fact that they are in fact not immortal. It's their choice, I just try to not let their actions influence the outcome of my day as quite sure they would not give me a second thought. :pot

    Well that's carefully worded, I noticed you took pains in avoiding 'follow the LAW'. I'll remember that one next time I get pulled over ...

    I should have added some asshat, twatwaffeling, cockholstering, douchnozzelry to my rant for additional emotion.

    I'm all for the "live and let die" philosophy, but causing a pile up that another rider is going to have to negotiate is a bit rude, if you ask me. They should at least get some loud pipes so we can hear them coming.

    Yeah, what's the big idea putting highway 49 in the header? You had me thinking...

    7 out of 10 on the rant. Not bad!

    I hate to see this too. I did a squid ride this spring and man, what a mess. Saw a kid crash on a Gixxer and hear of a few that got arrested for fucking around.

    Watch yer damn mirrors, gramps.

    Oh wait, this isn't Jo Momma.

    Those bastards! How dare they pass slower traffic!

    Nope, that's too far the other way.

    Let's stick with watching those mirrors and let idiots be idiots.

    I'm willing to "let the idiots be idiots" if they only kill themselves - that's Darwinian behavior, especially if they die before procreating.

    If they kill someone else, even indirectly, they need 25-to-life in prison.

    As it is, they need at least 72 hours in jail and a stiff fine to cool off.

    Too bad the law isn't this advanced.

    This behavior only belongs on the race track - that's why we build them.

    I see this all the time on my local roads. I just keep trying to remember that we call them squids for a valid reason.

    I have seen them run right into rock faces, off the side of the road and into the ocean, as well as impaled in the front of a few cars and trucks. None of it is pretty. The biggest problem is when they take out someone else.
