if it were me, i would move.

that said, why are you coming on here saying YOU put a motorcycle in YOUR blind spot and then bashing him for not moving? it me off when cars pass me up and then match my speed with me in their blind spot. it almost makes me wanna kick a dent in their quarter panel with my alpinestars or throw a spark plug at a window.

You still fail.


RcX's thread was not about how he drives and who he sees and how he handles traffic around him. That was just a fortunate by-product of his MSF knowledge he was merely pointing out.
The point of the thread was to warn the rider NOT to ride in other people's blind spot. AND in the process, reminding all the other riders on here to do the same. Bottom line.

His message was simple, quit looking for grammatical loopholes (you're doing it right now too, I bet).

Now put your d!ck back in your pants and move on to the next thread.

Sounds like you're getting off on it to me.

Flying is cool, I think someone posted pics of themselves flying over Hartman bridge, maybe that was you. That was a while back tho, so can't remember....

nice bike. nice gear.
wait, if you're going the speed limit and they're going the speed limit, wouldn't it just be fate as to where they ended up on the highway?

speed up to pass = speeding, slow down to let you ahead = driving too slowly.

do you want them to follow the law or be criminals?

Sounds to me, from experience with idiots around here, that after Ed passed the guy, the guy sped up and paced on the quarter panel. I see it all the time.

Basic deductive reasoning... if RacerX was going faster than the bike to pass in the first place, then either:

a: RacerX slowed back down to keep the bike in his blind spot
b: bike sped up and paced RacerX like a fool....

can't see the pic, if he's in my blind spot, am i in ft or beside him?

and back to what i've been saying, if your a rider, it's up to YOU to keep yourself safe, don't rely on others.

i passed him, but i got to a speed that i wasn't going faster. now he can either speed or slow down or sit in blind spot.........what his best option?

i don't drive my car to please others.
