how to deal with non motorcyclists

I just wanted some opinions on how most guys /girls deal with non motorcyclists heres my short story on way to work today 430am on 610 I past on my co-workers office lady whos past husband had passed from crash on harley yrs ago well I passed her at 100 empty freeway on a turn heading towards ship channel once I got to work she pulls in few mins later was that you u crazy ur ur gonna die riding like that . I kept my mouth shut out of of respect because I know her story but sure enough supervisors had to speak there opinions soon after which I told them I won't discuss this its pointless in my opinion cuz most ppl iv met either think anyone on motorcycle will die or they love um how do yall handle talking to people ....sry so long

I usually tell them that there are Lambs and Lions in this world. The Lambs are so scared of dying they forget to live and the Lions live life. I wanna die a Lion unafraid of the choices I make and the life I choose to live.

If you passed her, the freeway wasn't empty... that you were doing a buck+, you probably caught her by surprise. Take the tongue lashing and keep your mouth shut.

Yes, the Buell DOES like the cold. Yours also has a windscreen.... which must help. I'm too cold above 65, and too windy over 100.

Never had anyone see me ride (other than pull out of parking lot). LOTs of words of caution, and things like "it's way too dangerous in Houston for bikes"... but I thank them, tell them I'm safe, head on a swivel, and move on with the conversation.

Trying to read this post is like watching a fat lady in a bikini scratching her nails against a chalkboard. Think about that for a second.

It depends which angle they're coming from. I've had encounters with some that were only looking for a confrontation and some that seem truely concerned about safety. Niether are going to change their opinion(s) so unless I see an entertainment value looming, I just nod my head in agreement with them.

I passed my manager, co-workers, and some classmates on the roads before and they always give me the same speech to. You look dangerous, or your going to die. For the most part I either say nothing or say that I rather die have a little fun and enjoying life rather than trying to live in a bubble of fear. Plus even in my msf class the instructor told us that for the most part we should be going faster then the flow of traffic(not nessarly doing triple digits everywhere we go) and so non riders don't always realize that some of the things that we do may look dangerous but in some ways are actually safer to do.

Is it not obvious? it's clearly a potty mouth filter for the forums. If you logged in while you were lurking you wouldn't see pbutt, clbutt, pbuttenger, naughtyg... etc...

I kind of figured thats what they where for. But never fully understood why they just started to pop up out of know where. I just figured it was MH coming up with is own language. Just log out and looked at my post and I had them on my post even though I did not use bad language.

Log out and look at this thread. "Class" translate to clbutt and pass translates to pbutt or some like that. So strange.

Yeah, the language filter will do that when you don't know how to set it up.
