Did a 226 mile ride today with a couple of Buddy's and had some jackass in a truck try and run us off the road because we passed him. I've never seen anyone with such road rage toward motorcycles. Other than that is was a fun day, now it's back to work tomorrow

What did you......?

Cessna,
I used to live in Florida too. Down there it could have just been some old fart that couldn't see you...but then again it could have just been a red neck. Was he in a pick up truck? We've got lots of those here in Texas and they love to hog the left lane and dare you to pass,then race to get back in front. Just goes to show you there are as* H*les in every state!

Florida,land of the driving dead!

Don't worry: exchange right lane for left lane and there's one in every country. We have "right lane sitters with chips on their shoulders" here in Australia as well.

Nice that the MTS was the only one in your pic that ventured "off road"

I had a local in a pickup try to do that to me in the N. Georgia mountains a couple summers ago. I was passing him on a short stretch up a nice curvy mountain road on a friend's ST2. When I got even with him, he jerked the wheel to the L trying to run me off the road. The pickup came within a couple feet of me. Had he done so, I would have gone off a steep incline and down into some thick woods below. The hell of it was, I looked over and this a-hole had two children in the truck with him, a boy and a girl, that looked to be maybe 5-6 years old. Setting a real good example for his kids... I just gassed it, and gave him the one finger salute over my shoulder. F him and his redneck kids.

It was the first and only time I've ever had trouble like that up there, as most folks are motorcycle friendly around those parts.

I thought that steed mounting was more common in the southern states

Yeah - ouch. I assume you have a Ti Termi and took out the baffle. That thing looks like a carrot grater.

Took mine out today to go to my class and run some errands. It started out at 37F, got up to 44F, and I arrived home at about 33F. All said and done, about 50 miles. The highlight was running into another 2010 white 1200S Multi. It was actually the first time I've ever seen a fellow 1200 owner on the road, and when I do, it was 37 degrees out. Who'dathunk it?
