It's almost like I've had crotch rocket drivers in the past inadvertantly give too much throttle and flip their bikes in front of me before.... Or stall and tip over.

Nope, never had any of those happen before. Didn't annoy the guy behind me either when light was green and I wasn't moving because of said biker having complications with their bike. Nope nope, guy behind me wasn't annoyed at all biggrin.gif /sarcasm Biker was pretty happy I didn't run him over though ^_^

Yeah, then again. I had dumb nuts here all most hit me in the Pathfinder SUV I use to have. rolleyes.gif Seems no matter what you drive down here, the nutty buggers still don't pay attention. So, I treat everyone like they can't see me. Bad thing is, I am use to how Californians drive (they tend to drive fast but get out of the way). Everyone here are either slow as piss ants or don't know how to use a blasted blinker. mad.gif Or even how to use a six lane road properly.

I've ridden my buddys sport bike, its an amazing piece of machinery, the speed, cornering and everything. But it's a torture rack and I could barely stay on it for 10 minutes before I was like, get me off this thing. That was when he had a ZX6-R. He's got a CBR600RR now.

But ya, passing trucks on the highway is pretty nerve racking, I usually just twist the throttle wide open until i'm passed, I don't care about speed limits at that point, just get me by and not die lol.

But I would never buy a Harley either, the price is astronomical and you can buy better bikes cheaper.

O this is why I love my crazy huge single thumper S40. It got the torque range of a rocket, but it nice to ride. biggrin.gif I ain't kidding, I have taken off faster than some rockets from dead stop. Tricky thing is while taking off I must hit 2nd gear immediately since 1st gear is super tight. The bike one time came close throwing a peep off when I had someone drive it back for me since at that time I had yet to get my license.

Wait a minute, I thought only in California it was legal for lane splitting?

Which I miss doing since sitting in the heat with an air cool bike between ones legs get pretty toasty. Though, I only did it when traffic was super bad and only at like 20mph or less. As long as traffic was moving 30+ mph, I stay in the lane.

Most stupid stuff here I see bikers do is drive one with sandles on, or shorts on, or tank shirt on, or a combination of those. Then they have full size helmet on. I am like, well you will have pretty face in casket, but not much else.


Though, for giggles. Us peeps near Dothan and in Dothan love messing with tourists who come through the first time going to Panama City's beaches. Hehe, especially if they act like arsehats to us. When they ask for directions we are like. Turn right then you will pass a Marrot Hotel like three or four time then turn left at the main road (our road signs don't show their highway names tongue.gif). They more or less go around our circle highway a few times then feel like idiots.

Plus, you have to pay attention to our highways signs we do have. They can easily confuse peeps who are not use to how to read them.

Ride a red 2012 1000cc Vstrom and love it. Remember-AGATT, i watch very little telly but make up for it with watching youtube video on motorcycle crashes. Lane splitting, stunting, all scary stuff for me these days, plus my reflexes are so not what they used to be redface.gif.

BTW - 30K away from the CNT for the marathon - 70 points will be ours thumb.gif

817 at the moment but I'm more annoyed about the 420 pending tasks on Universe. If those were validated we'd move up couple of spots

These CSG units don't give a lot of PPD. Thought I'd get up this morning and have a bazillion and some odd points and I have 3,000? wth.gif
post #877 of 1534
Haha no. 101.98 each.
post #878 of 1534
I've got about 10,000 in validation.
post #879 of 1534
I'm finally down to just 59 prime work units in validation... Also still have 17 CSG, and 1 Universe pending.
