Equally true if the bicycle is going faster than the motorcycle...

And the rocks too. Equally true if they too are going faster than the motorcycle.

Bringing physics to a joke fight... that's not fair.

You totally missed my point - the rocks are passing the guy on the Harley.

However, an inmate here that most likely will read this and can fill in the gaps, has done just that on a bicycle.

Seems they were doing a mountain hill climb ride. Spent the day riding uphills and finally the end was at the top of mountain. The cars back at the start were only about 10 miles away nearly all down hill. Rather than wait for a shuttle, they headed down the mountain and suddenly over took a group of bikers... I had Hardly remember the brand. Long story short, they weaved in and around and through them an passed (and pissed) them rather quickly and cleanly. Once at the bottom of the hill, they dismounted, got helmets off and then came the bikers stopping to exclaim that they shouldn't be doing that with expletives and but little noticeable embarrassment.

Yeah, I totally missed it. Which is not unusual. Damn... it would have been a funnier joke if you didn't have to explain it to me!!!
