bikers who pull up "dead" center 6" behind the bumper of the car ahead of them, then put the bike in neutral and wait to be crushed by the first car behind 'em that doesn't stop.

I got rear ended last summer because of this... Now you can bet that I'm off to the side and flashing my brake light enough to give someone an epileptic seizure.

This. Between the I-5 and 205, I feel like I experience the entire idiot spectrum on the daily. Usually it's the texters/Facebookers/email checkers.

HA! GREAT thread!

-Sneezing in my helmet
-People that purposely put sh*t(gravel and rocks) in the street to screw with bikes
-High speed bumps in marking lots
-People that don't know how to ride in a group of bikes

Douchebags who sign up for a FREE day at thunderhill with Jason Pridmore's STAR school then don't even fucking show up, or have the foresight to cancel and give their spot to someone else on the waiting list.

Fuck those uppity assholes.

That's my pet peeve.

I Ride: Everyday
When you are on a road with few legal passing areas and nice twisties following a car that goes 10mph through every corner, 40mph in no pass straight areas and 80mph in all the straight stretches with passing areas becuase they do not want you in front of them.

Motorcyclists who complain about inattentive, distracted, slow (insert adjective here) drivers, as if they didn't exist until you started riding.

I'm sure they did, but I wasn't paying attention

NO TURN SIGNAL.

I wound up in the hospital in Bend a few years back because a person's simple lack of flicking a little lever and switch.
Much love for the Scorpion helmet and a*'s jacket for saving my bacon.

I have an urge to slap people up-side the head every time I see that discourteous negligence of not telling others what you're about to do on the road.
My first act as Emperor of the world would be to require all vehicles have a signal device. At each intersection you signal, left, straight, right. If you fail to signal, or turn contrary to your signal. You get shocked.

You don't want to know my solution to all the crappy drivers.

I had a lady (and I say that nicely) on Airport Way in rush hour traffic flick a cigarette out her window right next to me. The butt bounced off my leather pants, I was like, did that really just happen? I reached down and picked up her still lit cigarette butt, rolled forward and flicked it back at her and told her I was not her ashtray. She was definitely shocked and put out her cigarette.
THIS is my number one pet peeve for anyone on the road. I've screamed at people before at a stop light when they do this.

Adding people who forget that the gas pedal can be used to maintain speed while going up a hill, or that it's not necessary to slow down for a curve on the hiway.

Getting stuck behind some clown in a "performance" car.

Brake-checkers might top the list. The 'tard that is on the brakes all the time in all the wrong places.

Actually Melbs' pet peeve reminds me...maybe I do have one pet peeve.

Douchebags that sign up for a private track day and ask to pay when they show up, but don't show up because it's raining and end up sticking the organizer with their share of the track fee when the organizer was kind enough to not build in any cushion so everybody could get the lowest price possible. Eff those douchebags!

I waited a long time to say that. Thank you!

When I'm driving many things annoy me but while I'm riding not even 2 fucks are given. Maybe that's why I like riding so much.

The consequence of really wanting others to follow the rules that help ensure everyone's safety is a heavy zero tolerance police presents on the road. As a riders or driver I don't want that but I would be glad to see an attitude consummate of the death and permanent injury "accidents" impart on others. I guy can dream, right? He says as the cold weather and pain draws in again.
