i sing old country songs really loud because I know no one can hear me and I do the wobbly weaving in my lane alot. I think I freak cars out when I do this because a lot of people slow down or move away from me. Im also guilty of dodging harmless stuff in the road when Im bored ...road reflecters, paper pieces..(except that cooler, which wasnt harmless, and I didnt dodge it very well ).

A lot of times at lights, I will start to make my gas tank into some kind of drum. I got to always be doing something I guess, especially when your always upbeat from riding.

I "warm" my tires when Im bored. I get funny squid looks.

I yell at the car infront of me, and make noises when I pass them!

Talk to myself...

I also do the "lean " in corners.

Anytime Im in traffic, and I pass a car with the windows down.. I obscenitys and laugh!

I look at girls.. and wave to them.. I will take off, then slow back down after I pss them to keep looking!

I do the "hey baby" in strange voice when I see a hot chick!

I sing when I ride...alot. Lately it's been a mix of Usher, Boyz II Men, Tyrese, etc. I think I may start riding with my ipod but I have a big head an afraid that everytime I put my lid on, the earbuds will fall right out.

And at every stop light I'll put my visor up and crack my neck, first left and then right. Even if I just did it 2 stop lights ago,

Ha Ha..

I'll never forget.. Prob my best memory of YankeeR6. We passed this smoking hot girl in a Porsche with the top down and we were in traffic(on the way to huntsville) She would get ahead.. then us. I was right behind Yankee when he did it, but he looks over at her when she is right next to him and turns and pats his rear seat saying "come on baby!" Good stuff!! Hey.. she got a laugh too

I always yell at ppl that me off. Or sometimes ill sing if the ipod is off

Yuppp! It's even cooler when I do it in my truck, although I still make the motorcycle sound :/:

Sometimes when I pass someone it's like "meeeeeoowwwww" and if I pass more than one it's "meeeeooooowwwwwww whoosh vroooom whoosh"<--something like that!

I pick my feet up & see how long I can balance at redlights

In the rain, when the pavement type changes, I drag my feet to gauge how much grip my tires are getting

I sing along with my mp3 player! If I don't have any music I am bad about biting the insides of my cheeks! If it is a long ride I will just about have the inside of my mouth all eaten up! :/:
