I hear ya on the bikers man. I live in the bike capital of the USA and driving is so defensive because they will sprint without looking across 5 lanes of traffic and weave inbetween moving vehicles and what-have-you. All I see is a death wish. I drive with my foot hovering over the brake...

coolest thing about the vid was that you're familiar with the trail crossings.
Also that was a very mediocre Yee -Haw. I mean I realize you weren't riding white water rapids but... it still lacked.

I know this is why you posted a vid isn't it.

It has to do with attitude. They fall under the vehicle code just like a motor vehicle but the police don't enforce it.

While I'm an avid bike rider (road and trail) people like that piss me off.

Default Re: a little bit on fun on a dirt road

When I see a biker in a bike or using a motor lane, signalling and showing the same respect for the road I do, I'm always very courteous. I go slow, I yield to them, let them go first and give them a wide berth.
I want to encourage that sort of law-abiding behavior, lol.
All the bad ones I think make the drivers here angry. I was going down the road and one illegally crossed by popping out of some bushes into a roundabout and almost hit me, then smacked my truck and flipped me off. I see good bikers being safe and idiots just cutting them off, boxing them in, almost hitting them, and making them regret riding in a bike line. It's a two-way street, but I think enforcing bike laws would help make more bikers safe and raise their opinions to us motorists. I have a feeling though, that at least here, it'll be like Ford and Chevy drivers trying to get along...
