Garbage Trucks

I dont post much, but sometimes I need to rant about something only other motorcycle riders would understand, and I dont know any riders to complain to.

I commute to work most days on a bike, and something about my route ALWAYS gets me stuck behind some @#$#)%*(#)$*( GARBAGE TRUCK.. Those things should be illegal there is always something flying out of the back of them, and they stink.. Plus since they go 10 miles under the speed limit on the highway if you dont get over in time you are stuck behind them forever!!!!!!

I live in conroe, and work in the woodlands, and in that short commute I got stuck behind 2 garbage trucks today... I hate them.. I do not condone lane splitting mainly because cagers can be jerks and I have seen them open the door just to "scare" a biker, but I had to do it.. there was no legal way around the stupid garbage truck and Ill be damned if me or my beutiful v-rod are getting trash on us..

Sorry to rant.. I had no one to rant too, all the cagers at work dont get my hatred for garbage trucks..

I feel your pain, the worst is getting behind one the day after it rains, and the sumabitch is oozing trash juice out the back.

That is only because those street sweepers don't know how to drive them. Correct speed and RPMS of the brushes they aren't bad. Plus Elgin Pelicans rock in the turns
