Anybody been buzzed by motorcyclists in Griffith Park? This past weekend I had stopped for a drink of water after reaching the top of Trash Truck Hill. I was just starting to take off down the back side of the hill when a group of motorcyclists came to the stop sign there at Mt. Hollywood Drive. One of them honked at me. My first thought was he was being obnoxious, telling me to move the f*#k over (even though I already was). But then I gave him the benefit of the doubt. "Perhaps he's just giving me a heads up," I thought, "After all, it's easy not to hear 15 crotch rockets behind you in the park."
Then their pack proceeds to whip by me, two abreast. Several of them buzzed me and a couple even swerved in front of me as they passed me, getting awfully close to my front wheel.
You'd think motorcyclists would identify more closely with cyclists than the average motorist. I figure there are d@^chebag bikers just like there are d@^chebag cyclists. Or maybe it's a combination of some d@^chebags and a herd mentality. I've only had positive experiences from car traffic in the park (though I do avoid riding there during rush hours). Just curious if anyone has experienced something similar.
