Look, I don't give a flying **** what you guys say to me, statistically speaking, I'm safer on the bike. I'd have PREFERRED to be on the bike yesterday, because I would have had PLENTY of room to navigate around EITHER side of him. There was a good 8 feet to his right- not enough for a car, enough for me and my bike.
Back off. I ride my bike because it is the ONLY type of therapy that works on me, I have tried everything to relax, nothing works like my bike does. If anybody has negative **** to say about me and my bike then you can kiss my *** and **** right off. I'm sick and ****ing tired of hearing it EVERY ****ing where I go. Almost every person I meet says the same **** to me.
"Oh you ride? You're gunna get yourself killed on it *******!"
So ****ing what? What I spend my money on and do with my time is my ****ing business, not yours.
And if you're still gunna sit there on your *** and TELL ME as though I am a 2 year old and not a grown *** man that my bike is dangerous without even realizing for half a fraction of a second that rarely is it ever the fault of the biker in accidents then i'm just going to ignore you. Easiest way to get me to stop paying attention to you. If safety courses were mandated for cars like they are for bikes for those under 21 then we wouldn't be having this problem right now.
As for the asshats who decide to lane split higher then 40mph, **** them. They're being dumabsses. I lane split below 40mph because I'm not going to sit in traffic and let my bike overheat and ruin the engine, especially since my bike is my only mode of transportation. Lane splitting is great, don't have to deal with overheating bikes or *******s trying to push you out of your lane because they need to merge in.
Rant mode off. I'm done for the night.
All about that unibody life.
