European driving

I agree with your point about driving in Europe; during all of my driving in the US, I want to go faster than 95% of the drivers on the road. (Seattle drivers... SHUDDER!) In Southern Spain, I believe the ratio was reversed. (By the way, JB, the Socialists lost the Spanish Civil War so it is a backwards right-wing fascist nation. Or was, now that Franco's gone- but his legacy lives on.) Hmmm, nations with considerably less natural resources and with fractions of our GNP, yet they can design highways that support 100mph+ cruising speed and train the drivers that can handle it. Basically, it all boils down to good-'ol-fashioned American apathy. Wake up, pay attention, and DRIVE. If any Seattle drivers are reading this: Arise out of the coma that is your life and live a little! I'll be the guy right behind you with a really bright headlight and a blue SV650...

Re: Seattle driving

Yeah, I've never quite figured that one out either... Left lane traffic: 45 mph. Right lanes: 75 mph. Go figure!

I still stand by my theory that the way that Seattle drivers (and most American drivers) act on the road is merely a reflection of the comas that are their lives.

U Village?

As in University Village? Yep, home of rich moms, spoiled kids and it's one of the top SUV Meccas of Seattle. I love to bunny-hop speed bumps in there on my SV...
