The last thing I want is a Vulcan. I mean, who wants their every decision second-guessed by one of those pointy-eared snobs? Always making with an arched eyebrow and complaining about how illogical it all is.

My #1 irritant is getting stuck behind a slowpoke on an entrance ramp. I encounter this almost daily. I wonder why more people don't try to match the speed of traffic before they get to the end of the ramp.

A Nomad isn't much better ruining your carpet with their dirty feet and goats.

Cager's are mostl likely pissed about lane-splitting because they have to sit in traffic while motorcyclists actually get where they're going in a timely matter. Jealousy does a good job of making people bitter.



Now if they would just allow lane-splitting here in Indiana. . .

Funny. When I'm splitting lanes LEGALLY in CA, my #1 annoyance is cars on either side of me!

Seems less obnoxious than a one fingered salute -- get those occasionally from the old school Harley crowd -- and it's just part of cycle/biker culture, so deal.

Why do you think all Drifters have a Mean Streak?

Yep, I get this all the time. It's not a cruiser thing... but a Harley one.

Yep. I've gotten cigarettes flicked at me, arms casually dropped out, and even the occasional door open... and I'm splitting at a very rational speed. I guess drivers forget they have A/C, music, drink holders, DVD players, etc. while they wait in the big as guzzlers, while we're exposed to the elements and just trying to get past the 4-wheel nightmare.
