Your "speed" doesn't make me insecure, it makes me laugh. AT you. As does your use of fluent English.

Again with the nerd insult. You've been watching too many old movies. And for the record - and I think I can safely speak for all of the rest of us - I don't think you've ever stolen (it's steal, by the way) a women from anyone outside your fantasy world. And I'm even more sure you've never actually had sex with one... in real life, at least.

We have another poster here with a bike just like yours, he can dial his up to 400 watts, what's yours go up to?

...and next time just introduce that guy to your friends - shoulder and pavement.

Okay wait. So WHY were you being mean to an elderly person? Because he got you wet?

Did you expect an old man to get out of the car and fight? Don't you think with your big stature that would have scared him enough? What did you want him to do?

I'm not trying to chastise you or anything, I don't understand why you were so angry. If he was trying to race you, I think he could have pressed on his gas a little more, don't you think? Maybe it was just a coincidence he was going your speed?

I have a feeling he wasn't trying to be such a bad guy as you may have thought.

C'mon Siu... didn't you read the original post? His gears aren't working right so he could only get onto the second "gear" in the front. And he was going 40 like that... it's obvious that a little gas pedal holds no candle to this guy; just wait until he can get his third gear working. I'm thinking 60 easily for this muscle bound guy!

As for fighting with the old man, I think I saw this guy on TV recently. News article about a kid who is so macho that he can beat up a 91 year old man. Yeah, I think we're all in the presence of a true star here!

And set it so that when he is riding 15 mph, the computer says 60 mph, then he can go race with the big boys on the freeway.

(very slowly)
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep
While riding in my Cadillac
What to my surprise
A little Nash Rambler was following me
About one third my size
The guy musta wanted to pass me up
As he kept on tooting his horn
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

(slowly)
I pushed my foot down to the floor
To give the guy the shake
But the little Nash Rambler stayed right behind
He still had on his brake
He musta thought his car had more guts
As he kept on tooting his horn (beep beep)
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

(normal speed)
My car went into passing gear
And we took off with gust (whoosh)
Soon we were going ninety
Musta left him in the dust
When I peeked in the mirror of my car
I couldn't believe my eyes
The little Nash Rambler was right behind
You'd think that guy could fly
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

(quickly)
Now we were doing a hundred and ten
This certainly was a race
For a Rambler to pass a Caddy
Would be a big disgrace
The guy musta wanted to pass me up
As he kept on tooting his horn (beep beep)
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

(very quickly)
Now we're going a hundred twenty
As fast as I can go
The Rambler pulled along side of me
As if we were going slow
The fella rolled down his window
And yelled for me to hear
"Hey buddy how do I get this car....outa.....second....gear?"

He did kind of "launch" through those trucks at the end of the clip...I'll bet that was him.
