    It's not just on Bikes!

    Just got back home from a 10 mile round-trip with my father-in-law, riding in his truck (we live on a farm).

    Coming up the road (2 lane, what most people around here call a "holler road"), we were forced into the ditch by some smeghead heading the other way in a bright orange pickup (painted EXACTLY like the "General Lee" with the big "01" on the side and everything). He was ENTIRELY OVER the double-line in the road, on OUR side! (And no, this wasn't anywhere near a curve!).

    As he passed, knocking the driver's side mirror off Dad's truck, he blew his horn (of COURSE it plays "Dixie" too!).

    We sat there a minute, and then Dad said, "Well, he's definitely a redneck."

    "Really? What gave it away?" I asked.

    Dad grinned and said, "His license plate says RDNECK right on it."

    Just got done calling the cops... This guy should be easy to find.

    So the moral of my little story is, it's not just bikes that get buzzed!

    Or it just goes to show that there are azzholes out there... and your driving/riding style doesn't mean a hill of beans to them.

    Well, my "dad" (father-in-law, but I call him Dad) would too, but he's 83. Still drives perfectly though, and gets around better than I do on occasion.

    Just wanted to say "Respec'!" for the use of "Smeghead". First time I've seen it on BF.
