I nearly rolled one off the hood at a 4 way stop this afternoon. 4 cars stopped at the bottom of a hill and this guy came through the stop signs at probably 30 mph.

size and speed
when i'm running in the bush
or on the breakdown lane
pushbikes overtake me
as close as possible
as fast as possible
no warning
i'm on a pushbike/mountain bike
i give warning
running i warn walkers
on my motorcycle
a number of times
i've had cagers
coming at me
around a blind corner
why?
they have to overtake
a pushbike
so should pushbikes be off the road as they cause cagers to try to kill me?

i have no answer for stupidity and arrogance.

from my experience
cheers

Much of this thread = the anger I feel because of the way cagers disregard motorcyclists and I will take it out on bicyclists.
I will bicycle down to the Huntington Beach pier today just to breath salt air. A two hour round trip for me.

Jim
Now were getting nasty
You cast aspersions
Sorry Cnt
Spkl
What is normal Jim
They are not riddles
To me
Simple opinions
Sometimes with humour
Try to read and understand
Don't be so thin skinned
I try to to say something
With few words
Not be long winded
Do I have to spell everything out for you
Just in my own humble opinion
No offense meant
Try to laugh at myself fist
Then at you
You suggested that I was a fake identity
I've told you I'm not
Sorry I'm ranting again
Gotta get off this time waster
And do something constructive

Cheers
