For all you that hate the idea of motorcycles, I add my experiences yesterday. Asswipe in a car on his cellphone wanders into my lane. I hit the horn, but still got all the way to the curb before the jerkoff swerved, yes swerved, back into his lane. Needless to say he saw a finger at his window, and heard a lot of bad words at the stop light. Later in the day I had a guy blow a stop light, mind you I wait 3-5 seconds before I venture into an intersection for this vary reason. He was on the other side of 3 or 4 cars that stopped at the light. I have anti lock brakes and experienced them fully. I applied probably too much front brake as I lifted the rear stopping to avoid being a statistic. Thought anit lock would avoid that, and am going into the dealer to make sure the antilocks are working correctly.
The best part of my day was the cop that gave me a ticket flew by me at a yellow light. He wasn't going anywhere as he obviously slowed down after the light. I called the city and gave them the number of the squad and asked why it was ok for him to do this, but issue a ticket to anyone else. I was transfered to the chief. It didn't go well, we had a bit of an arguement.
