Howdy Mark,
I had a similar experience awhile back.
I was heading up Hwy 1 just North of S.F. and came up on a m/c CHP on a BMW RTP. I was on the LT. I kept him about 50-100 feet in front and then.....he cranked it up and we were off. One of the funnest rides I've had in the twisties on the big bike.

Red face How about this one...

I had a scary experience with a 100 lb kamikaze mule deer at about 60 mph on my way to work one morning. Lucky for me it only cost me a used left side faring and a reflector on my left fork tube and a clean pair of shorts....So I guess you could include that also.

I bet the deer was on a cell phone.

Cool

Any idiot on a cell phone while driving, soccer mom or otherwise.

Idiots, usually on Harleys, that see me coming up behind them and move right into the center of the lane so I can't go around in the same lane. Most of the dime store desperados have no clue about m/c courtesy.

It's not so much "hate" as it is "fear" ... I "fear" the 16 year old Asian gal who is riding up my rear wheel while applying lipstick and talking on the phone.

Why? Because they don't seem to have any fear ...

When I was young and stupid I used to carry a pocket full of marbles which I would drop one at a time onto the pavement and watch the car behind me react ...

Now? I don't think it would slow them up even a bit ...
