Years Riding: Longer than most of you have been alive. And I'm still slow.
How you found us: The voices in my head told me to come here
Just got done merging off my side street (Helm) going S. onto Algonquin. It's an easy turn and I can get up to speed in a blink. Traffic is moving at only 40-45. There was a 250-300 ft. hole I grabbed. I squirted up on the guy in front and was already settling into 3rd about 4 feet off his left rear bumper. I was done checking my mirrors and moving back into his tire print. Next thing I know I hear tires chirping and a horn blairing on my rear. Evidently the asshole behind didn't like that I merged in front of him and decided to close the gap, slam on the brakes, hit the horn, wave his arms and mouth off. He then camped about 3 ft. off my tire still waving his arms and mouthing off. At this point I'm pretty pissed and thinking about dropping back on his door.
I'm thinking "what can I do to this fucker" when I rolled up to Bateman and decided to just flip him off, take the right and enjoy the turns. With how slow Algonquin was rolling it was just about as fast and more fun anyway. I've done it before, but going after a guy in a car is hazardous. But..... grrrr
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
