Yeah the bicycle thing is pretty stupid. Just go ride the bike in some trails or the parks where the have areas foe the bikes to be ridden. No reason to go and play in traffic

The people (like the one I quoted, whom I've known MOST my life) are the ones who respect the laws and the road. Blanketing all cyclists in the same group is folly, just as it is with sport bike riders.

I couldn't find any law that prohibits bicycles from traveling on a 45mph road.

Where is 'their place'?

My issue with cyclists is when they ride two abreast. Unless they are passing another cyclist, I don't see the need for it, especially on a 2 lane road. It creates an unnecessary danger for everyone on the road.

This is what the law states.

Quote:
(c) Persons operating bicycles on a roadway may ride two abreast. Persons riding two abreast on a laned roadway shall ride in a single lane. Persons riding two abreast may not impede the normal and reasonable flow of traffic on the roadway. Persons may not ride more than two abreast unless they are riding on a part of a roadway set aside for the exclusive operation of bicycles.
So it sounds like cyclists should never ride two abreast if there is any traffic behind them because that would impede the normal and reasonable flow of traffic. A motorcycle can safely pass a cyclist in the same lane without needing to ride in the opposite lane and yield to oncoming traffic. If they are riding two abreast and you must wait for the oncoming lane to clear to make the pass, they are impeding traffic.

Trucks are worthless wastes of material and people don't need them. Lifted trucks are needed for small pricks. Hybrid drivers are all stuck up and deserve the cloud of smoke from my truck. Harley riders are gay weekend warriers. Metric bikes are for posers who can't afford a harley. All sport bike riders deserve what they get. slow cars need to get out of the fast lane. People that drive with brights on are morons. Asians can't drive. Everybody should use public transport. Walkers need to get off the trails. And grandma needs to stop driving...

OK did I miss anyone?

One of my superiors actually killed himself by testing how powerful his road rights were against an SUV doing 50mph. He was riding as the leader of a group and he had the right of way to make a left turn (not a designated left-turn-only lane) at an intersection ON A HIGHWAY. It was such a stupid move on his part, knowing the details from the other riders that witnessed it. I guess technically he still has a Masters in Engineering. Doesn't do his beautiful widow and two handsome little boys, 7 & 9, any good.

You're rights won't jump out and stop an SUV hauling in the other direction if you pull out in front of it. For the life of me, I can't figure out why supposedly "intellectuals" can do such stupid things that fly in the face of the most basic guidelines of staying alive.
I like what the 773H you have to say.

i wave, you should too.

bicyclists are actually just like bikes, when they get on public roads they are supposed to follow all rules just as cars/motorcycles should and are treated as a vehicle.

I try to give a friendly wave to anyone on two wheels, and anyone who does something nice like those who wait to make their left turn in front of me, instead of cutting in front of me ... i try to wave to them so they'll be nice to bikers next time.
