    your so right bikes don't belong on the road, or anywhere else for that matter, sidewalks are for walkers/runners. But why stop there, we do endless damage to parks and woods with our trails, not to mention the impact we have on the wildlife. I mean think of how many squirrels and other woodland animals you almost given a hear attack to and disrupted there homes. How dare us. Then theres the whole riding through streams and across water passes washing oil and grease off our bikes into the ecosystem. No telling how many biker related deaths there's been to water dwelling animals, much less the animals that drink from said water. Heck I bet if someone did a study they would find that bird flu and mad cow disease where both caused by bikers!!!!!!
    I hope you flip your bike over and knock your two front teeth out! You selfish son of a b***h! - wedding crashers
