I saw a guy a few weeks ago who didnít close his truck bed gate and the crap in the back was only held in place by gravity and the Grace of God.

What about those that feel the need to wash the windshield with us right behind them????

And those smokers with their smoke, ash, and flying lit butts.

My favourite (yesterday), was all the people who think it's OK to overtake bicycles on a blind bend.

A bit worrying when you're confronted with a huge 4x4 on your side of the road

Yes, disturbing stories, a shame that natural road conditions aren't the only thing we have to put up with...

So I'm riding my Wing yesterday because it can carry an arsenal of Harbor Freight and Autozone, tired of stuffing things in my jacket (Been riding the CBR everywhere, love that thing!). Got on the interstate, heavy traffic day, in the passing lane gliding past the slowpokes at a fairly slow speed. A girl decides to suddenly change lanes and pulls maybe 15 inches in front of my bumper. Looks in her rear view mirror and then taps her brakes! How do you not notice a bagged bike with a with a windshield, I don't get it.

quit trying to understand it. I think its all a downward trend with making cars smarter than the drivers. That and the inability to put the smartphone down---ever.

Best thing read here is ride like everyone is out to kill you. Sadly it is extremely close to true.

I've had my share of close calls and dumbass drivers that thought I'd look better as a hood ornament. Now my biggest bullet to dodge is deer, and they don't really discriminate between cars and bikes.

This I think is the biggest problem, cars have far too many distractions, I see people texting, talking on the phone, messing about with their sat nav. In fact everything apart from looking at the road or in their mirrors.

So knowing this, we have to adapt, filtering is far more dangerous these days so I tend to filter in heavy traffic much slower, most cars are aware of your presence but regularly I come up behind a car and they have no idea Iím there.

Letís be careful out there!
