Whoa, bet you made them blink!

You never played tag? Its best when you catch a buddy with a girl on the back and he doesn't know you are there.

Bonus points for getting his keys at a light and taking off with them.

I found an easy way to break someone of that habit. When you come up to a stop, reach over and grab their keys and toss them into some bushes. After spending an hour rooting around for their keys, I guarantee you they'll never hit your kill switch again.

I've never played tag on a bike. I ride alone. All my friends are married... their wives won't let them play.
