Great commercial.

But I bet I'd still get hit, clipped, or run off the road. Simply because drivers (especially around Chicagolands more affluent towns) have a huge sense of road entitlement, and motorcycles are painted as a "poor choice"...so it's my fault if I get hit or run off.

yeah i know. that's BS. i actually think taking the MSF course makes people better drivers. not just motorcyclists, but if non riders took the course it would get them thinking more.

My tanks plastic, so it really wouldn't work anyways. But for for rush hour stop and go traffic, I could see using a 10 pack of those.

I agree with TripleZ: Stupid people need to be "enlightened". But also agree with Pilotx1: Some people aren't worth the effort.

But wouldn't this be interesting:

Some soccer mom driving her FUV cuts off a group of 20 CLSB riders without signaling. Then, alluvasudden, she gets 20 of these flung onto her car: one from each of the riders. She'd freak out, spill her coffee, and drop her cell phone!

Ken, would be good to have these while doing one of your classes down at the Plainfield H.S. parking lot, so the next time Miss SoccerCunt drives thru the obstacle course, she'd be put on notice!

Dante: [to Randal] You never go ass-to-mouth!
Randal: [to Dante] Would you grow up!
Becky: [to Dante] OK, I'm only telling you this because we're friends, but sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass-to-mouth.
Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.

i can see it now. then her defense is that she was attacked by a biker gang and she feared for her life.

Oooo, I bet that's what the red card's for!
I wonder what card color I have to get past to justify throwing a handful of my pocket change on her SUV.

...and yes. "Her" and "SUV" are pretty much the only combination that have tried killing me. So far.
