What's the difference between riding three bikes wide on a 55 mph road or just driving a cage at a pleasant 15 mph.
I should be able to drive at the speed I want, regardless of what others think.
The leaves are beautiful this time of year and sometimes I slow down from 15 miles per hour to about 7 to get a better view.
Is there anything wrong with that?
Oh, and I slow down when climbing hills too. It saves on gas.
Actually, we get together with a few cages, ride a nice parkway in the mountains at that speed.
It's like our own parade...and it's legal.

Are we getting the picture here?
It frustrates the hell out of everybody else.

In this case its the dummies on bicycles.

No problem Just get the hell out of the way of the people who do not have the time to slow down to look at leaves, there are laws in all states about impeding the flow of traffic even if you going the speed limit in the passing lane. That's why the sign says slower traffic move over or move right! It does not say move over if you are going slower than the speed limit but stay in the fast lane if you are going the speed limit.

Why do so many believe that others must get out of their way? Where does this inflated sense of worth come from? They're usually the first to cry foul when not getting their way yet in other circumstances fuck everyone else. Enjoy the heart attacks and strokes.

I already asked that and I got flipped off

Problem is, no one knows why they're the nicest people with their feet planted on Terra Firma, but as soon as they're in/on a moving object they're the most important person on the planet and hate everyone else. There's some good theories about it, but you try to ask someone, sitting next to them when they behave idiotic in traffic why they don't calm the hell down they'll get this self-righteous look on their face and gibberish starts flowing out their mouths.
Very weird and pathetically sad.

Whoever was driving that truck and the idiot filming are intentionally inflicting harm on another human being whether its exhaust fumes or torture its the same principal. When it comes to hurting innocent people or animals I get very irrate and my sympathy for the perpetraitor goes out the window. All the studies in the world show that this kind of behavior only escalates to more and more violent behavior. The driver and his passenger are future serial killers unless they are stopped.

Its not an inflated sense of worth, I pay the same taxes as the rest of the people and should be able to travel at the speed limit determined to be safe by the DOT, without being impeaded by someone who is looking at leaves. Why do people who are sightseing think that everyone should be doing what they are doing where does your inflated sense of worth come from??

Are you the only one who didn't get this?
Here's a little help:

A tongue of which the user speaks of something the complete opposite of what the user means.

Since I have yet to see a single bicyclist that actually follows the laws while road-riding ; I'd be inclined to say "get as close as you can, and try to knock them over into the ditch, trees, guard-rail, whatever..." The fewer of these asses on the road, the better!

A couple of days ago, I saw one nearly cause a wreck as traffic piled up behind him and cars were getting edgey tying to get around. The fucked up part is that this dim-wit was riding in the road parrallel to a very nice bike path that the taxpayers had provided for him.

I seriously am going to just drive behind the next one of these idiots forever (or until HE pulls into the bike lane).
