MAD AS HELL!!!
« on: 03/10/13 05:23PM »
I began reading comments left by the ignorant and unexperienced crowd on FB after reading the thread on here about lane splitting.  I was blown away when I read a the comment by one user (highlighted in the image).  I feel there has to be something we can do as a community to bring attention to the comment and others who act in similar fashion.  I wonder how his employer (Bayside Interiors) would feel about his stated actions?

I think I've encountered the douchebag on the 91 freeway.  I've had more than a few close calls splitting there, not as of late since I got the Triumph.  Maybe I look like a motor cop in people's rearviews...  :26:

As far as an employer caring, they only have concern if the idiot is driving a company vehicle, and even then, not much is done unless s/he gets into an accident.  The employer simply cares if: a) the employee is showing up as scheduled, and b) the employee is being productive and making the company money.

I keep telling you that if we start shooting at these clowns, they'll all stop this crap. Instead of seeing "motorcycle down" on the news we'll see "muy macho clown lies dead on the road". No, I'm not kidding. :29:

Nothing to calm the nerves like a cruise on the bike.  If only more people experienced the euphoria of riding I believe the world would be a happier place.

I saw this the other day and what that guy wrote. I was going to comment on it, and then thought. "What's the point of getting into it with this guy?" He's a total dbag and karma is a bitch. Still I was damn mad after reading what he said. People like that, I'd love to see him try that with me.

Ive had several people do that to me... Tons of douchebags that think its perfectly acceptable. They are just big pussies because they cant ride, dont have the balls to ride, and so they will mess with us from the vantage of putting us in danger...but if we were all in a room together that guy probably would piss his pants.

It's not worth the effort to get upset about someone making an idiotic comment like that. It's just trolling and e-thuggery. If it actually happens... Even then keep a cool head.
Owning a liter bike is like owning a pet tiger. If you know it's a tiger and you treat it like it's a tiger you'll probably be OK. If you start treating it like a house cat then it will likely maul you, possibly to death.

The real issue of this lane splitting problem is the way it was setup in this country. Why is California the only state that allow lane splitting? Because of the lack of education about lane splitting being a safe and LEGAL for motorcycle to get around, ignorant comments like this will always happen.  Seeing motorcyclist defending lane splitting is nothing new and seeing non motorcyclist condeming lane splitting is normal. I would like to see a non motorcyclist defending lane splitting and tell other non motorcyclist that it is an acceptable thing to do.

What if we tried to pressure them into making a story about how the "dangers" of lane splitting come from ubber agressive drivers like the one you guys linked?? Maybe have them do a bit of research on him/ppl like him.  I linked their contact info but i wonder if phone calls and emails can do anything? Just an idea.
