How do you clone a Mazda?

So I'm on the way in this morning at about 6:45 and I'm doing my usual thing of cataloging all the traffic around me. I'm OCD about it and I don't wear an Ipod so it's a running dialog in my helmet:

"Black Jeep 2 o'clock, headed left. Silver buick 7 o'clock, gaining. Bus, 11 o'clock, slowing, Buick is coming over here. Red F150, 9 o'clock, might jump over for the next exit...."

It's just my way of trying to anticipate and plan my options. Anyway, I hear my voice saying "Orange B2600, 5 o'clock, big chick with huge hair, matching speed." A second later, I hear "Orange B2600, 3 o'clock, big chick with huge hair, matching speed." I need to get over, so I accelerate to get ahead of the B2600, check my mirror, and there she is, "Orange B2600, big chick with huge hair, 5 o'clock, falling back."

I initiate an assertive move to the right and, out of habit, I do a head check as I go. What do I see about 20 inches from me and exactly where I want to go? A big chick with huge hair and eyes, matching speed in an orange B2600 and marveling at this idiot who thinks he can ram her off the road with a sport bike. I have no idea how my handlebar missed her mirror, I had to jerk my knee in to miss the driver's door. She must have swerved because there's no way I corrected in time.

What are the odds of finding 2 orange B2600's driven by big chicks with huge hair in the same lane on I45 at 6:45 AM on a Friday? Today they were 100%.

So I'm thinking this was a good reminder to do a head check before initiating my turns.

Oh, and be on the lookout for an orange B2600 driven by a big chick with huge hair. It will clone itself when you're not looking.

That's a rediculous assumption. The B2600 was never offered in the US as a 4x4.
