    A couple things from my drive this morning, plus a bonus.

    1. Bicyclists that don’t stay in the bike lane. I don’t give a phuk your skinny azz tires are intimidated by street grates and leaves. You brought a knife to a gun fight. Put proper street tires on even of they make it 5% harder to peddle. Get more exercise and quit holding up traffic you entitled wanker.
    2. Tacoma “bros” with their truck fully kitted out for overlanding/zombie killing. Don’t phuk’n glare at me because I have a Pro that’s clean and not sporting a roof top tent. I’m too busy adulting to play that game and I have zero credit card debt. Suck it.
    3. People that think you shouldn’t own a truck if you are not doing truck stuff. These clowns are usually the first to be “freedom for all” in other topics but get all hater when they see their neighbor driving a truck as their daily. Pick a side…

    Okay, I feel better.

    Agreed on all points.

    Except I have a rtt now lol. But I did finally get new tires instead of the stock Michelins. But I had too, was hoping for a change next spring but a blown tire forced my hand early. No regrets.

    Agreed.

    Cyclist - understand that roads were built for VEHICLES. Your use of them is secondary. It’s not the vehicle’s responsibility to make sure not to run over you - it’s yours to stay out of their way when reasonably possible. Same to our Amish friends and their damn buggies.

    I don’t drive down railroad tracks and bitch when the train doesn’t slow down for me and get over.

    2. Vehicle customization is a personal choice. Wanna buy a Jeep and make it look like your in the Army - go for it. But don’t act as of you are somehow anything more than a person who customized a Jeep. Wanna play GI Joe - plenty of recruiting stations where you can sign up and get paid to do it and they give you a free Jeep too.

    3. Again, wanna buy a 1 ton diesel and drive to the Home Depot and sit in the parking lot acting like your a “real” truck owner - go ahead. To be a “real” Big 3 domestic owner though - you might as well set at home on the internet bitching about all the problems your having with it or how an oil change cost you $350 at the dealer.

    I’ll also say…I fully support paying for bike lanes. Honestly think we should have more of them. Just stay in your lane.

    And I don’t care if you kit your truck to use it or as a fashion statement while you park at the mall. Your truck. Your money. Just don’t hate on me…

    Todays thing I hate - attorneys.

    Just in general attorneys…not that they are a particularly “loved” group most days - but just really getting under my skin way to early on a Monday…and for once they are offering me money…not the other way around (of course you know one expects a healthy chunk of that offer for their services).

    I find the level of rabid hatred for bicyclists over all other annoyances on the road interesting.

    It's no less aggravating for cyclists either. Fact is, cars, bikes, and pedestrians should have their own separate, dedicated "lanes" for safe travel. Unfortunately the US doesn't do transit planning / infrastructure well.

    It's less about the means of conveyance and more the idiot behavior. An idiot in a car, on a bike, or walking is a problem, sure. I think the added heat in the situation is that if a cyclist, biker, or a pedestrian is dumb I am at a greater risk of killing them. A fender bender is bad enough, but killing somebody (even accidentally) is a terrifying prospect. That fear is expressed as anger.

    For most normal, sane people, I think you have a point. Others seem to think it should be legal to run them down. In some jurisdictions, they even appear to have official support of that viewpoint:

    As a mechanic that's worked on diesels and now works on euros, I have a thing to add to this point.

    People who buy diesel pickups and european cars and then throw a fit because they can't afford the maintenance. You bought the most expensive thing to maintain, don't scream at me because your oil change costs over $200 for the cheap shop.

    I don't have time to read that, so my comment is being made without that info. Apologies in advance if I raise something addressed there.

    I don't believe anyone is advocating that it should be legal to run anyone down. I think it's more a push to change the way responsibility is legally assigned. Legally, if a car hits a pedestrian the car is at fault the majority of the time because the pedestrian "has right of way" and the responsibility to not kill them is on the motorist. Conversely, look at the trains. The train is not liable for somebody else's stupidity the same way a motorist is.

    Short story: 16 year old kid tries to "roll coal" on cyclists. Supposedly loses control and runs over 6 of them. At least 2 life-flighted out, and 4 with serious injury (some that could be life altering). Police release kid to parents without writing as much as a traffic ticket. This particular county has a history of being hostile toward cyclists.

    I rode for about a year when training for a 150 mile benefit ride with work. Of course, I dove in and started reading all kinds of cycling articles. Instances such as described - where authorities routinely refuse to protect cyclists and hold auto drivers accountable are more common than one would think.

    I loved riding, hated the diaper shorts (but they really do help save the tender bits of your undercarriage on long rides), but don't ride ride anymore because you just can't trust those in cars. Most people are reciprocal of cyclists - if you're doing what you're supposed to and not being an ass, they treat you well. But more than the jerks, the distracted drivers looking into their phones scare me more.

    While it's great exercise (way easier on the knees/back than running), I now occasionally take the MTB to offroad trails to ride. Plus, the wife will ride MTB with me - she always refused to ride on road because of what we've been discussing. Unfortunately, MTB trails aren't as plentiful or near to home as roads, so just grabbing the bike and going for a ride isn't so easy. We won't even discuss mixed use trails, those generally aren't suited for mixed use and are essentially pedestrian only.

    While I don't advocate hostility towards cyclist, I feel that most motorist are irritated that cyclist chose to ride on the busiest roadways while side streets offer a shorter distance traveled and less congestion. I can't tell you how many times I was making a right hand turn in traffic and had to slam on brakes at the last minute because a cyclist was passing traffic on the right. Cyclist are supposed to follow the same rules as cars in most states for a reason, safety.

    Last month my son was hit by a car while riding an E-scooter. Fortunately he was fine but I wanted to talk with the police to see if the driver had reported it. It turns out that my son was crossing a road going the wrong direction from the sidewalk. The car had a stop sign but I had explained to my son that the way he choose to cross the street put the motorist at a great disadvantage for visibility and he understood. If you try to explain the same thing to most cyclist it always turns into some BS about them saving the world since they are not driving a car. Don't get me started on the whole "I pay for the roads too" argument.

    I can totally understand your stance. I think both sides wind up with a sour view because of a few idiots/assholes one each side. I've had lots of cyclists ignore road rules and lanes, nearly get hit, and then have the audacity to cop attitude about it. Those are the ones that people get mad about, and those are the ones we remember. Same for road ragers and phone users. Those are the stand outs. We tend to ignore/forget the non remarkable interactions we have and focus on these worst case ones.

    All said and done, there are idiots everywhere, and the idiot of whatever situation should be the ones being held accountable. The scenario you laid out... the kid in the truck was at fault. The herd of cyclists that don't stay in the cycle lanes or run lights/signs... their the problem. It's all situational, and we all have our own experiences. 99% of my experiences with cyclists are positive/uneventful, but I've never nearly run anyone over unless they've done something dumb.

    Absolutely, wanna make a statement with your ride - good for you.

    But for some of these people the statement you are making is “I am a complete moron”.

    I have developed a complete hatred of certain models and their owners - just because they think they have something “special” when in fact all they have is a costly to maintain nameplate on their car.

    It’s funny - the higher end luxury is usually easier to deal with - it’s the ones who given the choice of a new Hyundai or Kia or a 6 year old Audi A4 with 100k miles and went with the Audi - then bitch about the cost of an oil change or when the turbo goes.

    Don’t buy it if you can’t afford the warranty - and when they laugh before they tell you the price of the warranty - take that as a warning and run.
