What is the best driver jeer you have received?

Unsolicited Comments from drivers:
We all get them some time or another. Most are lame like "Hey Lance - Get off the road" or "Where's the motor?" Those are the worst. But, which are the best? Have you ever received a witty or a well-timed comment? So what is the most inventive comment you ever got?

"Allez, allez! Bon courage!"

Sympathetic French drivers passing me by while I was struggling up the Mt. Ventoux.

At the summit (where there was--uncharacteristically--hardly any wind), I was rewarded with cool water, straight out of the refrigerator of a huge French camper.

On our tandem, we've heard:
Directed to my husband, the captain: "You know she's not pedalling in the back!"
Directed at me: "The guy in front is getting away, you better hurry up & catch him!"
We get a lot of looks on our tandem because they are very rare around here. Lots of "nice bike" comments. Had one guy on a roadie (we passed going opposite directions) turn around & catch up to us (he busted his a$$) to find out exactly what model it was & where we'd gotten it. He couldn't believe we'd actually gotten it locally. Plus countless other unintelligible comments.

How to phrase this so I don't get banned from the forum or enrage lots of people??

First, know that my complexion is a pasty, pale, uncooked dough color. Next, see me riding home from work in St. Louis, MO at 01:00AM in a fairly rough neighborhood. Now, picture a car full of recent immigrant youths from an Asian country pulling up alongside me. Lastly, imagine them all in unison shouting, "Hey [insert incorrect racial slur] get your bike up on sidewalk."

I say, if you're going to live in this country, at least get the obscenities right.

Paul ;-)

While out riding, wearing CSC jersey,
the week after the tour ended a kid yelled to me
"Do you know Tyler?"
I was floored.

Given that I'm a good 30 pounds heavier than Tyler, have
a full beard and its well, uhm, greying it probably wouldn't
have worked.

A very nice looking high school girl stuck her head out of the window of the school bus at a stop sign and said she wanted to have my baby.

I once had a girl shout "hey sexy, nice spandex!" But i would say the best jeer was back at school from a football player that said "Hey, look, its lance!" while i was limping out of the trainers office after my spill. I was tempted you yell "look is patton manning!" but i was having enough of a hard time walking.

I've had all kinds from nice to not-so-nice.

Hey get off the road a$$hole! (jerk in a pickemup truck).

Hey nice butt (from a bunch of high school girls in a convertible).

Sometimes jerky comments from young beefy dudes in a landscapers truck with a trailer full of lawnmowers. I usually blow them a kiss just to irritate and make them question their manliness.

A friend just got a good one the other day. A young teenage girl in the passenger seat of a car that her mother was driving, leaned out of the window and said "hey my mom thinks you have a nice butt!". I thought that was a good one. The girl didn't voice her own opinion. Since my buddy is just getting back into cycling after years of not riding (he has a bit of weight to lose), it made him feel pretty darn good.

I had some knuckledraggers in a landscaping truck yell some smack at me one morning. (No offense to anybody here that cuts grass for a living, but I was afraid they'd sideswipe me with the trailer carrying the mowers).

"Hey, nice shorts, ******!"

I said, "Let me get this straight. You're looking at my butt and I'm the one who's gay?"

Ha. I thought a vein was going to burst in that guy's neck.

Jeeze, I am in awe of people with fast comebacks!

Last saturday I was riding out Foothill Blvd, from Rancho Cucamonga to Monrovia where my husband works. I was crusing 15 mph (which is good for me!) and I hear this rattling buzz behind me on my left. I look over and there is a guy on a little 3 wheeled, powered scooter. He is leaning forward like he's going fast and working hard looking over at me, bouncing his head up and down. I said "15, 15 miles an hour!" and he replies, "Faster, come on, you can do it, faster!"

What a smartass--we were both laughing.

Not long after I started commuting by bike, my daughter (who was two at the time) said " Daddy, you forgot your truck this morning"

I think I only have had one thing said to me ever, atleast one that I can remember. I am sure there were a few others. I flipped this big fat guy off that graduated from highschool and drives his "pimped" out jeep around town. He drove by me and yelled "f*** you matt".

At a stop light a car full of high schools dudes pulled up next to me. The kid in the passenger side said "Hey Nice Butt" I proceeded to tell him thanks, but I was married and did not swing that way. I then told him that the right man would come along for him someday, but I was not that guy. He turned red as can be and all his buddies were laughing their butts off.

Would you mind if I use that one?

The strangest thing I ever had was some dude who was yelling something totally incoherent and waving a rubber blow-up doll out a window one time. If I could have stopped laughing at that one, I would have asked "how was the date last night?"
