Three strikes, I call it a day!

Went riding today like normal. In 45 miles I had 2 morons pull out of side roads in front of me, they ran stop signs, and another pulled out and slammed on brakes and waved when I came by. Three panic stops in 45 miles is not my cup of potlikker.
I promptly went back home.
Is it a full moon tonight or maybe the meteor shower affecting folks???

The 405 through downtown Bellevue is another place with multiple close calls per mile. Glad you made it home safely.

Glad you escaped without a scratch, c'mon out to CA and ride for a bit, you'll be missing home in no time, I wouldn't know what to do if at least one idiot on the cell phone didn't pull out in front of me on the way to work.

Glad you are ok!!! Great riding to stay upright!
You an official member of the "I survived driving with morons club"! They use to drive me nuts before I picked up a kisantech HL Modulator and air- horn.... now close calls are rare! The last was a suit distract by clients in his sedan cut me off. He was quite embarrassed when I blasted him with the horn!

Yea, I get that in city rides too. This was out on rural roads, where normally you don't expect it.
Remember it's deer hunting time again, dogs running deer, and hunters coming out of the woods slinging mud all over the once peaceful roads.
The weather is cooler now, so NO Excuses for not wearing all the gear.
