The list sounds right.. I had 2 very close calls with women chating on the cell phone in SUVs.. I never had a close call on my bike with a male driver. Could it be men notice vechicle types better? i.e think motorcycles and fast cars are cool etc.. whereas women think like your mom that we are nuts.
It's not that cell-phone chatting drivers are "irksome" so much as they are life threatening.
I can't count the number of times I've almost been nailed by a cell-phone talking driver that doesn't perform a head check or, even worse, doesn't even look before turning because their cell-phone is in the way.
Having my life threatened never fails to bring out my homicidal urges.
The last thing I want is a Vulcan. I mean, who wants their every decision second-guessed by one of those pointy-eared snobs? Always making with an arched eyebrow and complaining about how illogical it all is.
My #1 irritant is getting stuck behind a slowpoke on an entrance ramp. I encounter this almost daily. I wonder why more people don't try to match the speed of traffic before they get to the end of the ramp.
Cager's are mostl likely pissed about lane-splitting because they have to sit in traffic while motorcyclists actually get where they're going in a timely matter. Jealousy does a good job of making people bitter.
Now if they would just allow lane-splitting here in Indiana. . .
Yep. I've gotten cigarettes flicked at me, arms casually dropped out, and even the occasional door open... and I'm splitting at a very rational speed. I guess drivers forget they have A/C, music, drink holders, DVD players, etc. while they wait in the big as guzzlers, while we're exposed to the elements and just trying to get past the 4-wheel nightmare.
