Your words were:

"can't ride defensively enough to save his life..."

By saying that, you imply (that means stating without directly saying) that the riders don't have a certain level of skill (necessary to ride defensively). In doing so, you make value judgements about their need for those devices. It would be better had you just said, "I hate those bleeping things!" and left it at that.

You will NEVER win a logic argument with me, just like I will never win an argument with Longride. The line starts here. Take a number.

1. If your talking about a flashing headlight, No! I hate those dam things, always think its a cop then I see its just some old scared rider that can't ride defensively enough to save his life so he needs to buy one of these "make me safer cause I dont know how to products?

DOES THIS SAY ANYTHING ABOUT HOW HE RIDES, DOES IT SAY RIDE? IS THE WORD RIDE IN THIS POST? SO QUICKLY YOU GUYS ASSUME I MEANT, HE CANT RIDE? WHEN WHAT I WAS SAYING IS "cause I dont know how to "ride defensively" enough? So I need a flashing headlight to do it for me?????

Jezzz?
I think the key part of your phrase everyone noticed is thus:

"......always think its a cop then I see its just some old scared rider that can't ride......"

Whether you notice it or not, you DO have this tendency to write as if you're making assumptions. I'm not sayin' you DO THAT in a one-on-one basis when reacting to a "live human", it's just the way you write.

Perception is Reality.

well no doubt my writing is not the best I apologize I did say cant ride? Oops! Hopefully you know what I meant. "Has to buy one to do the defensive riding for him/her. My bad! Carry on.

SORRY EVERYBODY! NOT WHAT I MEANT! specially to the guy with the flashy headlight!

Slow down, Moke. Read what you write before you push that "Post" button.

I do, now. I learned the hard way.

Well I wear that Bell 120 that I was going to sell to Ken around the house to scare the cat. Makes me look like Gort on wheels.

Klatu Nicto Barata. Or was that Barata Klatu Nicto? Whatever...

Old and scared at least made it to old... Now that I work right off the BART station I quit commuting on my bike. The nads shrank a little each day with 26 miles of lane splitting each way. That and the torn seat covers... Do miss riding as much though... Then again my maintenance windows don't pop up every 3 months.
