  1. We knew this would happen..

    But everyone thought it would be the dog that was the victim. I used to see this guy almost everyday riding down one the busiest streets in Costa Mesa. The dog is strapped to the little trailer, standing up…I used to dread the day the pup ever got hurt.

    Well, it turns out it was the dude that got picked off. I’m sure glad the pup didn’t get injured 🙂

  2. Okay, you got me started on bicycles. I rode them when I was a kid in our smalltown on the sidestreets when and where there wasn’t much traffic. That’s one thing.
    Now the ‘bike friendly’ crowd has the authorities put up ‘share the road’ signs on heavily-travelled thoroughfares. I pay license, registration, excise, gasoline taxes, and insurance, and have to have my vehicle plated to use the roads. I have to take testsa nd put on a seat belt. If i astrike a bicyclist, the crowd n my state is trying to have laws passed that put the burden of proof on me.
    The bicyclist pays nothing to maintain the byways, no taxes, licensing, insurance. There are idiot mothers who write letters to the editor saying ‘You drivers better watch out for my kid out there on the road.’ Therre are bicycle advocates with slogans like “Ride Proud.”
    Then, there is the other shoe, where millions and millions, YES, millions and millions of local, state and federa ltax dollars are spent on ‘bike trails’, in a community where unemployment is 10%. They pour black, petroleum-based pavement over hill and dale and next to river banks and call them ‘Greenways’ and where they inersect with traffic they erect steel and concrete barriers and signage and lights, at the same time they are laying off street and highway employees due to lack of funds.
    et freaking cetera.
