I would have got up and walked over and punched the driver right square in the mouth....I don't think anybody would have a problem with that.

I'm sure I would've handled that situation poorly if I was there... to put it lightly


and like Downforce said - this is why I don't go to roads that are well known and popular like Deals Gap.

What an ass. I hope those riders are okay. NO PASSING ZONE dumbass! There are there for a reason!

Some jerk passed us while we were in a car going 5 over the limit because he wanted to do 8 over the limit on a NO PASSING zone (double yellow - JERK!) on a road near I-294. Wtf?

He didn't need to do that first of all. As I mentioned we were going over the limit by 5 already and then he doesn't even go that fast ahead of us.

Wtf is wrong is people?

If you're on a bike and someone is on your ass then you should ALWAYS let them pass. Not saying that this was any of the riders' fault but people in cars and someone who is actually going faster than you when you're on a bike are probably going to do some dumb shit so it's best to let them do it on their own.
