I'm not enforcing the laws. I am simply obeying them.

Which makes no sense because it might cause you to lose control and become a bright red stain on the pavement.

Me too, man.

I get a bad rap because I ride a sports bike and apparently all sports bike riders do wheelies in traffic and go 120 in school zones.

nevermind the car drivers on LI

When I lived in FL I remember seeing this on the news. Here's the short version:

Back in 07, someone and their buddy felt it was their civic duty to enforce the speed limit on I-4 in Orlando. Buddy #1 saw an erratic driver, so he calls buddy #2 who was a few miles ahead of him to alert him of the erratic driver. Buddy #2 drove at the speed limit, pulling out in front of said erratic driver each time he tried to go around so he couldn't pass.

Turns out this hotshot in a black Porsche Cayenne had a major case of the fits aka "Road Rage" because of this and pulls a gun on the vigilante Buddy #2, fires 5 shots and a bullet hits Buddy #2's neck.

Since there were only a handfull of registered black Cayenne's in the Orlando area, the perp was quickly found and detained. I know this is a rare incident but still... World is full of crazy people Gpsma. Be careful!

I tried to find the article with all the details, but could only find this

It's called a STOPtional sign.

Not really...The most cut off's happen at slower speeds...I did not state that in my reply...The higher speed cut offs I usually pull next to them and point to my eyes and mouth LOOK!!! 99% look sheepish and guilty...I then pull away...

But that requires them to pay attention to anything outside of their mobile entertainment center.

I know a few crotch rocket drivers...Sorry no offence meant it's just what I call that style bike...They ride normal...The others are ***holes...I pulled up to one that dumped his bike doing stunts and asked if he was OK...After I got a "yeah man" I laughed at him and called him a stupid bastard and rode on...
