I can understand his feelings although i wouldn't want to run anyone over. Bicycle riders are sometimes a real menace to motorcycle riders.

Constant issue around me in NY. Both motorist and bicyclist push the issue to very bad places. When there is no bike lane and you choose to ride 2 or 3 wide, there aren't many New Yorkers who are going to patiently wait for an opportunity to pass you. IMHO when you do that (ride multiple wide) you are seeking a fight or to be hit.

I don't think they should allow more than one abreast, after all cars aren't permitted to drive like that.

Yes, except that all of the lichen kissers have made SURE that ALL of the trails (EVEN the fire roads!) in the areas I've lived were PERMANENTLY closed to riders, DESPITE the fact that we did regular, intensive trail maintenance, and they did NONE at all! mad

Man that sucks....and makes no sense! Sounds like you need a bigger mountain biking organization where you live!

Shaking my head. I would have been on top of that dude in the 2nd video.

I only ride trails. Road's just too dangerous. I'm scared in my 5000#+ truck with these drivers.

Those examples show just the opposite: Motorcyclists are a menace to bicyclists, not the other way around. The motorcycle rider was clearly at fault in every one of those videos.

I'm not a teacher, BUT... WOW. Three mistakes on that ignorant sign and, no one here (so far), or even the TV reporter or his news editor could point out the third atrocity on that neanderthal's phrase? I bet that jewel took several hours to draft, paint and hang up... but saved plenty by not having to check grammar or spelling.

That sign is a testament that our education system is an epic fail.
