Maybe the two bikers that harassed me on Jimmie Dyess Parkway the other day were there to get blessed. I was waiting at the light to turn off of Wrightsboro onto Jimmie Dyess Parkway with these two in front of me. These two were probably in their 40's or 50's, on Harleys. They were talking and just sitting there, so I gave a short couple of toots on the horn to get their attention that it was clear to turn. After we got onto Jimmie Dyess Parkway, they were traveling at around 40 mph in both the left and middle lanes, so I passed them in the right lane and accelerated to the posted speed limit of 45 mph. They then bracketed my car, one in front and one in back, and stayed at 40 mph. When they gave me an opportunity, I passed them again, only to have both of them get in front of my vehicle and slow back down to 40 mph. When we reached the intersection at Wheeler Road, they gave each other the high sign and one of them turned onto Wheeler Road and the other accelerated up to 45 mph and beyond. With all of the problems that bikes have with other vehicles on the road, I would think that riders would take care not to deliberately harass other drivers.
I really do dislike bikers as well.The fewer on the road the better for me.
Their fake compassion is just an excuse for attention and a chance to rule the road.
I would like to say don't judge all bikers by what 2 riders have done. I have been riding for 42 years and have met and know countless numbers of riders and have only good things to say about them. Granted there are a few that do give the rest a bad name but not all. 42 years and counting !!!!!
