In today's episode of Play Stupid Games, Win Stupid Prizes, we have TWO contestants! The automobile driver certainly appears to have played the stupid game better than the motorcyclist, but the motorcyclist is our grand prize winner!


No insurance, on a sportbike, with 3 teenage children??? You can't fix stupid!

Not really no. I mean people drift into my lane or some times don't see and swerve back into their lane. If people are swerving on you daily you aren't riding right bro. You're doing something to people off obviously.

Just so yall are aware. In SOME STATES double yellow is only a strong suggestion not to pass. Passing is not illegal.

I actually had something similar happen to me on 517 a couple of weeks ago. Only difference was I was passing in the oncoming lane and there was a turning lane in the middle. Was still very close when the car yanked over. I could not blame the car as I was trying to pass 4 cars at once and the car was trying to pass 2 at once.

Yeah I was looking that up last night after seeing this. Texas does not have an exception I could find. Now if a cop saw you passing a tractor or a bicycle over a double yellow with a clear line of sight you probably would not get a ticket ... depending on officer.

This pass has been pulled on many a MH group ride .. but never buzzing the car like that and the vehicle was moving so slow passing was at posted or little above.

People do things everyday others do not like ... trying to harm someone by taking the law in your own hands is . Old man wont be saying "I dont care" when bubba is drilling his .

If I didn't beat him with an inch of his life on site I would set his house on fire, when he ran out I would beat him with an inch of his life and then he would watch his house burn down!

This happened to Paul1098 and me in Arkansas. Lucky for Paul, he made it though without incident but I was really worried when I looked in my mirrors and saw nothing but tire smoke. I passed a truck in a legal passing zone, he got mad and swerved truck and trailer into Paul when he tried to pass. I remember thinking OMG.

It happened to me as well, I saw it and slowed down enough for him to miss me. I was so I felt like I could kill the guy. I was intrigued when he turned onto my street (cul de sac) my house was the last on the left. I parked my bike in my driveway ready to confront the guy. He casually circled the cul de sac and continued down the road.

Woke up the next morning and the same exact car was parked next door. I never paid attention to my neighbors car but realized it was him immediately. Till this day I wish I would have called him out on his douchebaggery.

After that, its been all track riding for me. Felt like it was a sign lol
