Be careful out there: there are a lot of nuts with serious anger & impluse control issues.



A couple of yrs ago, I was putting along on GA 180 between Suches & Lake Winfield Scott on the "Fat Lady" (my 98 ST11). I wasn't exactly burning up the road either.



I saw a bicyclist up ahead, slowed a bit and swung a bit to my left. The road was really narrow at that point so I was going no more than 20-25 mph.



As I got close, the bicyclist stopped turned to face me and started screaming. I stopped (big mistake) and flipped open my BMW rider helmet. The cyclists was a 50ish, bearded and vegeterian skinny. He was ranting absolutely out of his mind. As I was wearing earplugs, could only get about every 3rd word.



I only responded: "Gore voter!" and motored off into a glorious future.

People like that are gifts from god, I'd have flipped him off and cussed him, then gone a little bit faster and see how long he could keep up.

If you read through the comments section following his post there's a pretty funny "family portrait" under ROFLMAO etc.

This is why, as a general rule, I avoid any 3 series BMW I see on the road like the plauge.



I do my fair share of weaving, as a courier I often have a ton of time-critical legal documents on board, and I cant exactly afford to be late getting to court with them... so, some days, I'm forced to do some traffic-blasting.



Almost invariably, I run into problems with 3 series drivers. Not 5 or 7 series, those are pretty benign, but a significant percentage of 'moments' I have involve road-sharking or disgruntled M3s and 330is.



As for this, I'm tempted to drive by that 'place of business' next time I'm doing a drop in Pleasanton... see if there are any blue M3s in the lot. *laugh*

A simple call to the manager asking if he knew an employee was using company computers to advocate breaking the law and injuring people would be sufficiant.

Beared veggie bicycle boy suprised me so much - and his rant was so unintelligible (no logic + my earplugs + helmet) that "Gore Voter" was all I could think of at the moment.



Sometimes I'm really slow on the draw.

reply to truebluem3 as he trys to run me off the road..



bring up leg in donkey style kick fashion...



plant boot firmly into door, leaving significant dent...



smile...



ride on...





ive had people try to "teach me a lesson" and i live in texas where just about everybody is in a f150... but they tend to get really worried when you call them out and just put a nice dent in the drivers side door and just stare them down all the while... sound too rash? so does running somebody off the road to "prove a point"...
