    Re: A rider waiting for an accident

    I can assure you, he won't be riding for long if he continues riding like that. It's hard to communicate to a rider when you see something like that. Last year, I was riding back from Idaho to Reno and I was on the Interstate. There was this cruiser who was 2 up drafting behind a big 18 wheeler, hanging around the "No Zone", too many things can go wrong for a motorcyclist if you hang around big rigs at 70 mph.

    The part that scares me most about this scenerio is that it leaves the rest of us responsible riders at risk. He might just p*ss off the wrong (or right person depending how you look at it) and they decide to take it out on us as we respectful ride down the road. I've seen it happen.

    The worse thing that happened to me was...I was riding on a two lane road with heavy traffic. Everyone is going along about 25mph. I'm with my hubby and we're riding staggered, so I'm in the right track. A H-D rider comes up behind me and reves his engine with loud pipes and scares the cr*p out of me. I knew he was behind me a car or two, but didn't see him pass (I don't know how he did because traffic was solid both ways). He passed me on the left quickly in my lane. P*ssed me off. No need for that. No one was going any where quick.

    Now, don't get me started about cagers.....
    Silly boys, sportbikes are for girls...
