    You know, I need a place to vent about the things that piss me off. I think I found that place.

    Of course, I can't create a thread without expressing my distastes so... here goes my list:

    1. People who join TheVog, never post, never say anything and just put stuff up for sale.
    2. People that drive 35mph on a 45mph 2 lane road then speed up to 50mph when it becomes 4 lane.
    3. Bicyclists that don't stop at stop signs and traffic lights but have the balls to tell you that you can't park in a bike lane.
    4. Groups of 3 or more walking side-by-side in airports in narrow hallways.
    5. People that walk through a doorway or revolving doorway then STOP.
    6. Speed limit signs that are blocked by trees, bushes or trucks.
    7. Motorcycle cops that DON'T wave back.
    8. Cage drivers using cellphones, tablets, reading, eating or putting on makeup.
    9. Hailstorms and no place to find cover. (i.e. Nebraska)
    10. Items I want that are listed on a website on-sale and out of stock.
    11. Green motorcycles that aren't mine.
    12. All of the things I think about or happen daily that piss me off that I can't seem to remember at this moment.

    What say you?

    Scooters wound out at 30mph on a 45 or 55 mph road with car stacked up behind it! If they are not capable of doing at least the speed limit, they shouldn't be on those roads. I absolutely hate scooters!!!!

    I'm not referring to burgman or other big cc scooters. I'm referring to those little 50cc ones that are made for 30pmh city streets, but their owners try to ride everywhere.

    People that don't know how to merge onto a freeway from a cloverleaf and stop waiting for a break in traffic. I go around them.

    People really never learn to drive these days. We were taught to drive when I learned, but now (of course) everything is the bare minimum. If the parents have to pay for driving school and have to drive with the kid themselves... when the parents never learned to drive worth a f**k either... what do we expect?

    Add in DISTRACTIONS. GPS, phone, music.... people are doing everything BUT driving.

    No one is going to make any effort to improve their skillset either... hell, motorcycle riders don't even do that very often.

    This is the world we ride through.

    Not me, I ride in a different world. Big pink bunny rabbits, lollipop trees and phones you don't need a manual for to make a simple phone call.
