    Agreed and kinda my point. Over reactions by those who don't suffer any physical distress from it, because it will "cause cancer" or "kill the planet" not only sound obsurd, it validates the reasons that the idiots use as a justification and gives them a victory in their little mind.

    Yes, I get smoked a few times a year while riding in the country. I smile and hold my breath. I think it's hilarious.

    So how under reaction do those of us who suffer "physical distress" have to suffer quietly so as not to make the idiots have a victory in their little minds - because after all, we should worry about how the rolling coalers feel.

    Folks like you who are actually effected should send your message loud and clear because it might actually get through to them that what they are doing is wrong and can cause actual harm.

    The reason these fools often target cyclists is because they stereotype all cyclists as hysterical, tree hugging, eco weenies flaunting their moral superiority, and don't stop to think it may actually hurt someone. Its ironic that you seem to be stereotyping those who are not impacted as thoughtless and insensitive because they ridicule those who live up to their stereotypes.

    You have sent a loud clear message here, you're just misdirecting your anger, I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing at those who trivialize the real harm you suffer with their rhetorical nonsense.

    Sigh. When a rolling thunder rolls by and you laugh, you aren't helping anyone. Except the "cretins."

    As a cyclist and diesel truck owner this made me giggle. My Duramax is setup with a lot of aftermarket performance stuff.
    The joker above talking about performance modules being illegal is wrong. I have completely modified the systems on my truck including a performance module (I use a tuner called EFI-Live).

    My truck is 590hp and 1,100tq at the wheels. Stop light to stop light I can embarass most sports cars, and I really like whipping the fart piped Hondas.

    With that said, the idiots you guys are talking about are the stupid flatbillers that buy a dodge with a 12 valve cummins, shave the fuel plate and cut the muffler off. They just blow smoke and make noise.

    My truck makes good power and burns clean. When I hammer it I get a little smoke till the turbo spools up then it cleans up and hauls ass.

    Still don't get the truck thing. Unless you are a farmer, or a carpenter, why drive a truck? Silly waste of space. And truck guys seem to cause the most anti bike behavior. Most of the hassles I've had were from guys in big trucks. Yelling and swerving around.

    truck beds can be super convenient, trucks are generally roomier if you have issues with ceiling height or legroom in most vehicles, preferring the taller driving position, rural road quality, prefer AWD/4WD for winter(and don't want a subaru/audi or poor quality system tacked onto a FWD transaxle), need the ability to tow. Lots of reasons to own a truck besides vanity.

    A properly tuned performance vehicle of whatever make/kind is not illegal... It's these smoke monsters that are... They would fail any smog test, thus illegal...

    I understand and agree with you. One thing to remember is that, with the exception of California, diesel trucks have had no smog equipment or regulation until the past 4-5 years. That is why I stick to an LB7 duramax instead of a newer one where they started with the smog garbage. Not to mention my state doesn't enforce smog regs anyway.

    Disrespectful punks that like to blow smoke should be ticketed. Their antics give the rest of us a bad rep.

    Well, if you think it's just a little smoke then you haven't been smoked... It's like 100 diesel trucks putting out all their usual smoke at start off with a heavy load comeing from 1 truck... Come back and give us your opinion after you have been smoked.

    It's funny to me because with every belch of unburnt carbon those cretins have grown that much closer to the inevitable day when there silly vehicles will be as extinct as the dinosaurs they feed on.

    What do you think people who share your thought process and sense of humor will be doing on that happy day? Picking flowers along side the abandoned roads?

    Mad Max movies come to mind...

    Actually, fuel will be so expensive that scooters and smart cars will be all a normal person can afford to feed. Fuel will be rationed and the military will have first dibs. We will still get "smoked out" but it will be Bubba on a 2-stroke Vespa doing the deed. The whole notion makes me happy.

    Dead elk make a mess in the S65 back seat. Much easier to clean the bed of my truck. I can think of many other reasons, but this is pretty good one

    Man, something else to be grateful for. Elk don't seem to die in my back seat like...ever. So I can own vehicles that fits in normal parking spaces, have reasonable turning radius, get good fuel economy, and don't haul around 128 cubic feet of air most days for the privilege of being inconvenienced most of the time by a vehicle built with the wrong shape for driving on paved roadways.

    I mean the macho, jacked up, smoke belching, bike bashing truck thing. Not trucks in use. I have had three trucks, a 1962 International 3/4 ton, for hay, wood and manure, a 1974 F100 for wood and hay and helping friends move, and my current, a 1986 Mazda B2200, with almost 300,000 miles, that I use for helping friends move, hauling bikes and kayaks, and building supplies. None of these trucks helped me feel either powerful or particularly manly. They just quietly got the work done. No ego involved.

    Always needed a truck for work. When I retired I decided to keep the diesel dodge. 24mpg highway and 18 in town, When traveling its roomy enough to haul all of the wife's accessories and my bikes covered under the cap. Still running strong at over 500K miles. Try that with your econobox. Oh, and did I mention I can haul a whole bunch of bikes safely covered under the cap?

    Because last time I checked, a Prius can't haul my firewood, tow my boat, tow my car trailer, tow my travel trailer, or haul my dirt bikes.
    On my economy tune it even gets 22mpg.

    The last time I got harassed cycling it was by a fart piped ricer full of high school kids, not a truck.

    Man, are you a self righteous mess.

    Wait, us truck guys cause all the problems.
