WARNING! (READ THIS) Warm weather's here, the NUTS are out.

Ya, it's springtime and it's getting squirrely out there.
Watch where your going, your left side, your right side & DO NOT
forget to look in your mirrors when coming to a stop.


I JUST missed getting rear rammed by a little 4 wheel ZOOM-SPLAT. Actually I heard a TINK as the car squeezed tween me and the car next to me at a stoplight but I see no damage. He was in the right lane but LUCKILY I seen him switch lanes in my right mirror and I ducked to the near middle of the intersection. His passengers eyes were BUG EYED as I glanced in that mirror, ya that told me to MOVE! cause he wasn't gonna stop in time. His 2 front tires were the space saver doughNUTS! I knew this cause I seen it a mile before. <<<YELLOW FLAG

Strange how much info you can get in a split second glance AND quickly react. :twisted:

So as the Sargent Phil Esterhaus in Hill Street Blues used to say,
"hey Hey HEY!... .. . Let's be careful out there."

And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.

FM-ole buddy ...Those are just YOUR returning snow-birds that have been terrorizing me and my ridin friends here in Phoenix all winter , cause they're late for a "T"-time , or Cactus league baseball game . Welcome to em ! Lived here forty years now , and been hit in the back three times sitting at a red light with no place to go . And one woman had the gall to tell the motor-cop that she didn't see me . ( A 78 GL with top and bottom light bars , and Baron lights , too . 26 lights on the back .)
Yesterday ; A woman pulled up beside me at 83rd Ave. & Grand Ave. , and asked me ; "Why do all of you Arizona "BIKERS" carry guns "? My response was a simple one . "Cause all you Snowbird Bimbo's and your cell phones keep tryin to kill me with your Buicks "! Arizona Biker ? I'm wearing dress slacks and a golf shirt , ridin the Wing . Seriously ? :roll:

You could have been dressed like the meanest Harley dude you ever saw or just in your skivies and flip flops,(Hmmm...also like a Harley dude) and the question would have been the same. :lol:

Later, Arizona. :D

That would have changed the question! :D

Now it would be, "Mr. Bond, Mr. Bond,
why do all the Arizona bikers carry guns?" :lol:

I rode, collectively, 200 miles today. Nearly all of it interstate freeway. In that 200 miles, I lost count of all the bozo's who passed me and then cut over in front of me less than 20 feet ahead.

Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.....and a lot more pissed off too!

Back when I was working "on the road", my wife and I traveled the interstates a lot. We would be in the truck pulling a big heavy 5th wheel travel trailer.
I have these heavy duty tires on my trailer with a speed rating of 65 MPH on them.
So I wasn't the fastest one on the interstate. I tried to adhere to that 65 MPH speed limit. :)
I can't count the times someone zipped past me, swerved into the lane in front of me then slowed down. :evil:
Sometimes it would be clear and I could pass them right back. 99% of the time they'd be texting on that darn cell phone!
Their messages must have been very, very important because they were willing to risk the life of everyone around them. Sometimes they couldn't stay in their own lane and we'd back off because we expected them to crash! :o
My wife and I often spoke of the days when only the very rich, in chauffeur driven limos, had a car phone. And how Detroit needs to put in something to kill cell phone signals when a car is put in gear. Get your messages when you get gas. :D

As Bill Engvall would say...
"Here's your sign"

Stick this on the back of your vehicle.

... and watch'm drop their phones when they pass.

LOL! :lol:
Good sign. I'd also like one that read, "Pass With Caution - Nuclear Powered Test Vehicle" .

And in small print, "Brought to you by the same sponsors of Affordable Health Care".
