Bike owners feeling entitled to parking on sidewalks as if their need to keep an eye on their bike is more important then that wheelchair that needs the sidewalk to get in the restaruant. I could go on & on about how obnoxious alot bike owners typically are & I don't think they help anything but their own ego. I mean this in how they conduct themselves on & off the road.
So, bikers act just like everyone else, given the chance. LOL!

My Dad was in a wheelchair for a decade. I could tell you a lot of stories about people running ahead of us to get into restaurants, letting doors slam in front of his chair and such. All of them drove cars and were as big a bunch of @ssholes as anybody on a bike.

An annoying biker is a public service. He adds some excitement to the miserable lives of the drones in their cages.

thats funny, but I don't feel the need to entertain the general public upholding stereotypes. But it is true and made me laugh.

I love being the exception to the rule, so what I do at Applebees for example when I'am walking out to smoke a cig, I'll make a point to go out of my way to open the door for the real old couple that's giving me dirty looks right up until I grab the door and say "Hello guys,how ya doing let me get that for you. They immediately replace their original look with a smile. Obviously they realize Iam riding from my gear.

I love changing people's perspective, specially when you break the stereo type mold.

Same here, I feel like I'm generally a polite person but step it up a little when I feel the scowl.

Not me, I mind my own business however I'm quite large and various skin cancers have left me with some pretty nasty scars on my face and head so as a rule people give me a pretty wide berth. I hold doors for people, I'm soft spoken and unfailingly polite so it's something of a dichotomy between my appearance and my mannerisms.

Of course I don't fit the 99%'r weekend warrior stereotype either with my Hi Viz 'stitch full face lid. I suppose it keeps them guessing when they see me with my "bad ass Harley"..
