I almost got around one of them that wasn't paying attention to their mirrors only to have another slide sideways out of the lane they were covering to block my opening through their pack. This probably went on for 4-5 minutes until we all caught back up with trailer traffic and they raced off to find another open stretch.

I seriously find myself thinking after the fact; what if I had just decided to keep moving into the lane where the guy was blocking me? His life vs. a dent in my door. Who would have given up the space first?

I bear no ill will toward riders in general, but the douche-bags among you sure put a bad taste in everyone's mouths. I can only hope they remove themselves from the gene-pool quick enough.

I rarely truly voice my opinions...loudly, BUT

as someone who has ridden for 38 years, roadraced for 12, taught motorcycle safety for 7, been working in the motorcycle industry over 20 years and owns 17 bikes...

I HATE THOSE IDIOTS!!!!! they give motorcyclists a bad name and If I saw some crazy old lady wipe them off the road I would see nothing...

You wanna stunt, go Fn "stunt" on a lonely road somewhere and leave others out of it...MORONS

Americans are thought to only want big fat hulking boats with AC, body roll, and power everything

Actually there was a reason for stretch and stance over in Europe and the reason it has been around for so long.

yeah there's a bunch of stuff getting fixed. the strut mounts, fuel pump and filter, wheel bearings, and Saturday during that rain I had a leak coming from my firewall. My passenger front carpet had a massive puddle on it. So they're going to fix whatever is leaking. Plus it's in for inspection so hopefully they don't find anything else other then what I know is wrong with it.
