Once again, citicism towards peoples choice of riding apparel. THIS DOES NOT AFFECT YOU! People wear whatever they want to ride in. Get over it!

Interesting to see so much fuck given for something that doesn't effect you at all.

No it certainly doesn't affect me at all. Just looking out for other ppl who share my same interest. I find a lot of these ppl are new young riders. I figured I'd give my own kids the same advice if they were to ride like this. Just my thoughts fell free not to read it you don't approve. In fact I really don't give a shit what you have to say.

I should have included that the picture (incident) was taken in Monterey (CA). They look at things differently in Calif. I wouldn't fuss over it. Whether it's riding attire or behavior ... the road will have the final say in these matters.

I asked google, it did not know, so I asked Ask.com, and was not provided with an answer.

Then, I remembered, that a great tomb of information once mentioned the answer to one of the greatest questions ever asked, and it occurred to me.

Wo won't share, because of 42.

So how does someone NOT BREAKING ANY LAW EFFECT MY INSURANCE????

Besides it's the fat fucks that are out of shape that effect health insurance WAY more than all the squids combined. I don't see anyone posting pix of fatties grubbing taco bell with a big gulp.

Someone help me understand this thread.

Some guy held up some traffic so other motorcyclists in a group could leave together?

Is this what all the awesomeness is about?

Maybe I should start a thread on the difference between "affect" and "effect" because I am awesome too.

You're doing well. You're glowing, but your bulb isn't quite lit yet. It the case of the Missing 'H'. This will turn out be be worthy of doctoral thesis. Considering what has been coming out of the school system? ... Maybe not.

Anyway ... you should ... start your own thread. It's not all that hard. Even I can do it.

Clue - pictures help.

All that spilled ink and presumed cleverness, and still no answer to my question.

Golf clap?

Blocking traffic is not polite.
Also, motorcycles are dangerous and immoral.

If you are unable to answer this for yourself, trying to explain the obvious would set one of us to a comprehension lever lower than yourself. And in the interest of moving forward rather than back, you'll forgive us if we just skip over whatever you post from here on out.

This very true. If you'll study the picture. You'll see the shadow at the chin of my helmet. That is a car in front of me. The light had just turned green when sweetcheeks (on the green zoom-splat) pulled up to the spot she is in. The white truck was nosing into the lane.

Not knowing which way these kids were going I let them in, between me and the car in front of me, as it pulled forward through the intersection. To make it even more simple, I let the car in front of me move enough to let them in, while I stayed where I was. The white truck, who (there's the 'H'!) was in a parking spot, had to wait for them me and the cars behind me. No one was blocked. Inconvenienced maybe.

I'd rather have kids, like this, in front of me. So I can see what they are doing. Rather than have them zooming in and out of traffic, like they do here, popping up out of nowhere. I've got a lot more important things to do than baby sit other peoples children, through me rear view mirror.

[edite note - Just who the fuck says I am moral? Where is this lout?]
