Getting a little tired of stupid drivers

i posted this on another thread about a motorcylist being killed, but was thinking on posting it here as well because in the past few months ive been hearing bout this more and more, and its really starting to get outa hand.

anyone have any idea of what we can do about this i honestly think all of us should try and create something to make the punishiments for this more severe to lessen the frequncey of this. any ideas im up for it im sure we can all remember times on our bikes when the only reason were alive is by the grace of god. im thinking we should get some sort of action going for not only the motorcyclist but also the pedistrians, cyclist, and drivers out there. anyone in.

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

For as long as I've been on the street, this has always been an issue. Every year during the warm summer months, it is complained about, the news broadcasts articles about it, and even highway signs are telling these cagers to watch out for us. The bottom line is, they are always looking for cars. They don't see motorcycles.

And now that gas prices have everyone in a hunch, you will continue to see more and more bikes and scoots.

The best thing YOU can do is ride defensively and be aware of your surroundings.

Mort highway not high way

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

BINGO...

Stay out of blind spots, pass PREDICTABLY and for god sakes, quit riding side by side in the same lane... you give your partner NO room to maneuver if they have to make an avoidance correction and you deprive yourself the same luxury as well.

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....
