That a boy ha

I was going to say tiny little marbles out the sunroof/window. They'll back off pretty damn quickly.

Up north here we have gravel shoulders not even a foot away from the edge of the road, so take a little swing into that, they screw off
lol, the only problem is that I have found that many people could care less if their car gets hit with pennies/gravel and it just angers them more lol. I'm amazed at how many people out their just don't care about their vehicle/investment.

I've calmed down in the past few years (I think mainly because I often ride my motorcycle as a DD now and don't want to get pancaked lol) and what I normally do now is just get out of the friggin way...people are so crazy...I still can't figure out why people rush to work lol.

I think people don't realize how dangerous they drive until it's too late. I won't even ride as a passenger in a car without knowing whose driving and how they drive anymore.

Sucks. I've had several close calls(usually one every time I ride, but I guess that's the nature of living in a city) but the really close calls I've had I was able to avoid by being smart and staying out of "danger zones". The closest I've had is when I was on a 6 lane road (speed limit about 45, I was probably at 55 with everyone else), I was in the left of three lanes, and there was a left turn lane next to me with a uhaul sitting there trying to cross traffic and blocking view of the other side of the road. I got a bad feeling and slowed down to about 30mph and just as I came up on the uhaul a lady pulled out in front of me, then saw me and made it even worse by slamming on the brakes and stopped right in front of me in my lane. I was able to stop(locked up back tire then did a stoppie....first time I've ever done that lol) just before hitting her, but if I didn't slow down she would have pulled out about 10 ft in front of me and I would have been going 55mph and would have learned what it was like to fly lol. Several times things like this have happened to me, kind of weird I get a bad feeling and slow down and avoid an accident... Riding motorcycles has made me a better driver of automobiles.

I try to be as safe as I can....honestly, I've begun to hate riding where I live here in Orlando, and have probably only been on my bike for about a total of 24 hours this whole year....I used to ride everyday to school/work, and every sunday. I've thought about selling my bike, but my wife has convinced me to keep it as I've wanted a Buell for so many years and finally got one last november. I haven't even put 1000 miles on it since I bought it(nearly a year) . I put 7k miles on my last suzuki in the last year I had it.

It's all the idiots out there that scare me, even most riders it seems are idiots. I've never done a wheelie on the street(on purpose...bike has 75 lb ft of torque and weighs less than 400lb, sometimes it comes up on it's own...), never done any kind of stunt on the street, don't speed any more than is safe, as the same in my cars, don't weave through traffic, and don't fly around corners unless I can see through them, etc... I've even had cars purposely try to hit me(I assume some other biker doing a wheelie at 100mph pissed them off or something). The last time I rode my bike there was a monster truck of a F-X50...probably 350 or something on my left at a light, and a trailblazer on my right....light turned green and the lady literally cut left and floored it and tried to push me into the ford.....luckily the ford was a good driver and was aware of his massive truck and me next to him, and as I swerved near him he swerved with me, I probably would have wen right into his rear tire otherwise(although barely moving).

My father in law who put 60,000 miles on his sv1000 in the past ~7 years also has basically stopped riding for the same reasons. Sucks that we are being pushed off the roads in fear of losing our lives...

At some point they need to re evaluate driver's license testing...the way it currently is is pathetic....I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO TAKE A TEST TO GET MINE....granted I'm a safe driver, but it just proves anybody can get a license.

I think it's way safer to go a little faster than traffic around you. That way you aren't sitting in someone's blind spot. And it makes you more noticeable to the car zombies. I NEVER just sit in traffic when on my bike.
