    1st Episode of Road Rage

    So I'm riding today, around 1:30Pm. I've been riding since 10, and could not stop, just went in for launch. I'm just bitting my hand, relgs, and getting used to shifters around territory here. I was going a good 30 MPH off of front gate and into community. This old fart beeps his horn even before the gate open for him.


    So I fore it, upshift and go really fast, like faster than the car in front of me. And they drive about 30 in 15, so I know how fast I was going. That car in front of me turn off and that old fart is now drag racing with me. He slows down for a speed bump, but I fly by on the side of it, and really, really get ahead on him..


    Next thing I know he must have been driving 40 along side of me. He gave me room, but drove right over puddles. Now I don't know how you guys deal with getting wet like that, but that pissed me off. So I follow him, and have a chat with this guy.


    He ended up closing his door on me and not listening. I ended up punching the side of his car, on the B pillar. Old fart should not do that again. Because next time I'll either kick his butt or vandalize his car during the night. j.k lol....


    Seriously. There are people like that in here, especially old people. They don't even stop for speed bumps and stop signs. I can't take that... It makes my blood boil. I have a fast 01 GT, 5 speed. And to drive like that over those bumpy roads is a complete disrespect, you'd look like fool. Unless you're on a bike.


    I'm telling you, that guy didn't expect me accelerate that fast, go that fast, and then follow him and confont his "only the man behind the wheel" sorry butt.


    I'd go faster, but I need front derailer adjusted. It only shifts to 2nd gear in the front. Can't get the 3rd one.

    Rest now, the nice men in white coats will find you soon and take you home.

    What a crock!! 40 MPH, huh?

    Yeah... and "I'd go faster, but I need front derailer adjusted. It only shifts to 2nd gear in the front. Can't get the 3rd one." That'd be hilarious if you didn't actually believe yourself! Because you do, it's just pathetic.

    Throw in the incomprehensible language and it's a sorry picture all around. [edit: and the fact that you're 26?? ]

    Maybe if you ride 40 MPH back to school it might help.

    NERDS, ALL OF YOU.



    If my speed makes you insecure, it does not mean you need to become an arse and flame me until your glory shines brighter than the sun. I'm not gonna qualify my self to you, you not worth it.



    Lower the other guy, and raise yourself, that's classic nerd behaviour. You don't have an idea how easy it is to steel women from people like you. Be it girlfriend, firiend, sister, wife, mom if she's hot. Acting immature lowers one's value, nothing else needed.

    How exactly would you 'steel' my wife? Steal maybe but I doubt she would be interested in a 12 year old.

    I am going to guess that the guy was fluent in English and when you started babbling nonsense he decided it was prudent to not engage you in conversation.

    You can skip the front derailleur and just place the chain on the big ring. (3rd gear right?) Go fast all the time!

    Wrong. He didn't know what to say back. Here I am, with my big muscles right up his face, telling him he should slow down. He got intimidated, because I'm young and strong, fluent in English, and don't take crap from other people.

    I'm not one of them fools that reads this, thinks what would happen if he does something like this, and gets embarrassed.

    That's hard. It shifted once into 3rd, and it was hard. Plus I think when I'm like that and going up a small hill I could break the chain.

    "1st Episode of road rage"

    Were you refering to yourself or to the guy in the car? Your last post makes me think that it was you.

    Then what kind of a fool are you? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Well think about it. He got me wet, and he was at least twice the speed limit. Racing a bicycle.

    This is why I stick to bike trails. My attitude can be worse than many road rage drivers. So, to protect them from me, I stay away. bk

    You not fluent as you maybe think.
    You maybe conversational, but me fluent. But that OK, me am ESL teacher. (No, really. I am.)
    By the way, if you punch my car and scream at me, I'll assume you are threatening me with bodily harm and you will be looking down the barrel of my choice in personal defense instruments.

    You should never have confronted him. It's a recipe for a fight, and you'll be the one who goes to jail. Just smile and wave.

    The appropriate follow up question is: "what type of pie?"

    Dutch apple or cherry for me. Maybe a rhubarb.
