Goram pedestrians...

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Talk' started by Tromatic, Aug 13, 2012.


  1. I was out riding the othercycle today (bicycle) and like any good little cyclist I would tell the clowns ahead of me I was passing on the left or right, not that the assclown with the iPod can hear you or the dick texting can see you.

    Being the awesome motorcyclist I am, I'm alert for developing situations where I could get nailed. I was moving along as quickly as my fatbody would allow and getting ready to pass two stroller-pushing idiots going the same direction against the left-side wall in the shade, taking up two thirds of the sidewalk. Seeing them drifting to the right towards one of those big concrete shitcans, it was time for "passing on your RIGHT!" What does dumbfuck mom on the right do? Move farther to the right.

    I'm fairly sure I clipped the stroller with the pedal, and how I missed that trash bunker I don't know. I'm starting to understand why people ride with a camera on all the time.

    Idiots, everywhere.

    ETA: Sorry, that should have read "riverfront esplanade". You know, where people ride bikes? Still, a bunch of votes for dumbasses wandering aimlessly with zero SA regarding what's going on around them. I suppose it may be safer to just go around rather then give the clown the opportunity to step into your path.

    What an incredible dick you are, you're the idiot!

    Don't you know Oregon law requires you to slow to a walking pace when you encounter pedestrians on a sidewalk and then wait until the path is clear before passing?

    Yelling "on your right" is nowhere to be found as giving you a right of way on the sidewalk, or walking path.

    You're worse than all the bad cage drivers you bitch about
     
    Bmwridr05 and courier11sec like this.
  7. That was you, eh? Your stroller scratched my pedal. How about walking your fat ass on the right side of the path next time? And try a little situational awareness, too.

    Oregon law encourages riding on the sidewalk?



    Figures.

  9. This has the possibility of being one of the best threads ever. Ride on the street, don't be a dick.
     
  10. This explains so much about you.
     
  11. This could be moved to the Portland section and that would be okay.
     
  12. Well, tell me, Doctor! What do you think? What's the diagnosis?

    ETA: I obviously need a loud pipe.

    This.

    And this.

    Bicyclists are some of the most self righteous asshats on the planet. When they're on the street they OWN the street and when they're on a shared walk/bike path they OWN the walk/bike path. Stick your "on your left" and just slow the fuck down when passing people.
    The dickholes on the sammamish river trail in their racing wannabe spandex gear are the worst.

    bicycles and bitching....,oh perfect.

    Why is it everyone else is the idiot?

    Do men wearing tight fugly shorts have anything to do with it?
    Or is it that phallus shaped seat?
    I dunno please explain as I gave up bicycles a long time ago....,
     
  15. I was going to say "a baby seal dies every time someone talks about this", but I wont.

    But, well, you did.
     
  17. No, I was passing two obilivious dumbasses who were on the wrong side of the path to start with who due to their poor navigation skills going to force me into either hitting them or hitting an immovable object. I know I don't own the road, and look out for others. Plus, I don't dress like a fag. Does that count?

    Fuck y'all, anyway. Pay attention to what's going on around you. That too hard for some of you weaned-on-kerosene tards?
