HONKING THE HORN: I understand that about 10% of the honkers have good intentions, they honk from farther away and its a quick toot toot. I like this, very courteous, and always gets a thank you wave as they drive by. Then there's the honk when they are right up on you and HONK for about 5sec. Is this because they think we are hard of hearing, they think they are better than us because they have a horn and we don't, or because they like to toot there own horn?
YELLING OBSCENITIES: Let me first say I don't understand this concept in general hanging out of a car window or not. These people are hanging out of there car windows yelling at us telling us to get off the road while this nimrod is dangling out of a car. Who is the unsafe one? Maybe next time I'll offer this guy my bike helmet just to protect him in case he gets side swiped by a tree branch. Hey. I'm not wishing that upon him but...
CONVERSATION GUY: This guy is a little different than our yeller, he will drive next to us to tell us how dangerous it is to be riding on the rode. This is all happening while he is leaning into the passenger seat, with one hand on the wheel and eyes on us with a glance at the road every 10 seconds or so. What is wrong with this guy? Besides the fact that he could run us of f the road, oh yeah and get in a head-on collision which would probably take us out also. Everything is wrong with this guy: he insults our intelligence, could potentially take us out in the process, and he is being so reckless. I guess he is trying to make us aware that there are vehicles on the roads, so be careful. So, if this is the case the thought is in the right place but the timing is way off.
Ride safe everyone and follow all rules of the rode and do not get distracted!!
