I ride to work almost everyday. I’m around a lot of cars and SUVs (I do work in Palo Alto) and Prius’. There are also a fair amount of Busses, Trucks, Semi’s and motorcyclists (who I wave to). Would you like to hazard a guess as to which I dislike riding around the most?
Yep, those damn motorcycles.
Surprised? You shouldn’t be, I dislike it for the same reasons that Car drivers hate us. They’re small fast and unpredictable. Which means since I can’t see them or accurately guess what they’re going to do, I need to slow down make sure I can see them and not try to do something “risky” the same time they would.
Gah! It’s annoying!
It’s why I just try to bugger off anytime I’m near another bike. Not because I’m trying to show off, nope I’m just trying to get away from them so I can get back to my usual amount of normal riding.
