Yeah, although I'm sure it's been done, this isn't a big problem in Oregon either!

Not that I'm defending "those annoying wreckless hornet swarms", but I found this funny.

It takes longer to stop a motorcycle than a car. To even the odds just a little, cyclists must make a habit of anticipating surprises.
That reminded me of one of those L.A. chases involving a bike, where the guy in the helicopter kept saying how the bike brakes were going to stop working because the rider was going in excess of 90 MPH! (OH NO!)

Yeah, I always felt bikes stop faster. I know they have less tire area, but they also weight a heck of a a lot less. I thought the math worked out that bikes had more tire contact surface area per pound...

No doubt the particular bands described are nitwits, but...

"Keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. Check your rear and side mirrors..."

If all cagers did that I would feel much more safe on the road while riding my bike. We have all witnessed the morning coffee drinking, cell phone jabbering, make-up applying, newspaper reading, McDonald's eating drivers to know the pool of nitwits comes in four-wheeled variety too. And in my experience there are way more of "them" than there are on bikes.

When I'm driving and I see something approaching at a high rate of speed - whether car or bike - I just keep doing what I'm doing and don't make any changes. I figure they see me, have accounted for my speed, position, etc., and already have a plan to avoid hitting me so why mess that up?

Quote - If you're driving a car at 70 mph in the fast lane, the swarm will pass you in a matter of seconds. So figure the bikers are going at least 85-90 mph. This reckless disregard of the law


I love this, "If you're driving 70 MPH!!!!!!!!!!" The speed limit on chicago highways is 55, so wheres the "disregard of the law."????????

This lady is an idiot, I'd love to go to her school and bitch her out, but it's not worth it.

And I'm rarely doing 85-90............



Usually much faster than that

I whole heartedly agree. It does take a lot longer for a bike to stop. You figure, at 30mpg and $2.20 per gallon here...I'm going to go a lot further than that Suburban. That is what she's talking about, right? :?

I once said "Displacement was compensation for lack of skill. Therefore, there is no need for anything more than a well balanced 600." Right, who was I kidding.
