Ok, who never had this happen:....You are cruising your RS at 80 mph, enjoying the scenery, listening to a good song on your mp3 player and suddenly there are these 2 fatass Harley's in front of you blocking the road, only one of the frustrating things that can happen.

I made a poll to see what frustrates you the most

:ricky

I voted for the soccermoms on cell phones, but I am sure that covers any moron driving while trying to hold up a cell phone to their ear.

Anything involving cell phones.

Here's how it's gonna be when I'm made President
and Dictator for Life.

Every car, truck, minivan, or other four wheeled vehicle
in the country will have a twelve inch stainless steel spike
in the center of the steering column. When a cell phone signal
is detected within two feet of the steering wheel, the spike will
automatically extend out towards the drivers chest. It will remain
extended until the signal is no longer present.

I believe that this will properly focus the attention of the driver on
the most important task at hand, which of course, is actually driving
the vehicle.

If on the other hand, the clueless cell phone operator causes an accident,
or otherwise screws up and fails to pay attention to their actual interaction
with other traffic on the road.....well then , it'll only happen the once,eh ?? :hanged

Euro Rider is Right

I want to change my vote. Last summer I was tailed by a CHiPie for 20 miles while cruising a twisty state highway in No. California. Tho it was a bit annoying at the start, I realize we were playing a game He's just doing his job... Its not often I get a police escort!

Soccer moms and other distracted drivers are dangerous and need to be avoided (if not thron in jail) They don't frustrate me--they kill me.

But fat ass harley riders in large groups blocking my access to the twisties just frustrate the hell out of me. Particularly on the Ortega. Goldwingers usually pull to the right and wave me by. But groups of Harley riders obviously don't give a shit about others- "we're riding harleys--and we are many--don't fluck with us" seems to be their attitude. Their rolling chicanes are just asking for me to cut in and mess up their lines. Big ass Harley riders--you don't have to stop--JUST GET OUTA THE WAY!

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. :D

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.

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 ...
