Hey I dunno why I am introducing myself. I normally just lurk. Online is the only place I feel safe enough to lurk otherwise someone else might be lurking just behind me.

Anyway somehow someone sent me an e mail suggesting I introduce myself. I am not sure why but I am gona try.

I am Krank rider. I am 30something and live in TO. I was a bike mess pre 95 and came back just over a year ago. ( full time that is). I ride without style whenever possible and consider communication the only way to prevent deaths on the road. I don't think people generally hate me because I am on a bike but I sure do think they hate me because they can't predict what I am going to do and their insurance will go up if they hit me, regardless of whos fault it is. So I see a lot of hostility. It is worse in winter. I look more like a boy and so get a little more confrontational behaviour directed at me. So what. life is hard. I try and does it matter if the bozo in the car does? Probly not, My hapiness is my responsibility, someone elses hapiness or misery is not.

I dunno. riding for a living in sub zero temps with ice and snow and salt and water and ruining rims don't make a girl so nice some times. Nice to meet you all. Make me laugh and maybe I won't sound as angry. Few weeks of cold crap from the sky don't make for pretty poems that be for sure.

thanks for being here.

Hi krankrider! I've found that my long red hair does a lot to distract motorists from being hostile, but it's not necessarily going to work for you :lol:

Thanks for de-lurking!
