I am a pretty mello guy but these A-holes made me want to bump them off the road. Crystal just made me smile with the way she handled them. Tom was with us he may may some more to add from his position..



The only thing I saw from my vantage point was a group of bikers, 5 of them were riding slow, another 4 or 5 were tearing it up... The 5 passed crystal on the right, the bitch in front of crystal was moving at a snails pace, so crystal changed lanes. Because the bikers were riding like bastards, she couldnt see 1 of them in her blind spot, so she essentially cut one of em off, which must have pissed off the group of slow bikers.... Red light came, I saw 2 or 3 bikers ride into the shoulder on the right, and then cut crystal off... She didnt take to that to kindly, and she "jumped" up within a few inches of the douchebags who cut her off.... The bikers were being assholes, pacing themselves with the slower cars, and staying in everyone's blind spot... I had one just hanging out in my blind spot, I tried to speed up so i could get him in my mirror, and the fucktard would speed up as well to purposely stay in my blind spot. They were looking for someone to hit them i think...

Unless that guy cloned himself there was only one bike that was up by us when I started to get over. I saw him and stopped changing lanes until he got by me. I was fully stopped at the light for a good 15/20 secs before the rest of their group caught up and the three went around me. If there was a second bike there then totally my bad I never saw him or her but I fully used my mirrors and looked before I went over. I have uncles and cousins that ride so I do my best to look and I know on nice days they are out in force.

I was more worried about them hitting Jim's care then mine.

I might just stay in the driveway until winter now.

it wasnt your fault by any means... i even saw you check your blind spot... but when the one dude saw you were going to change lanes, he sped up trying to keep you from getting in front of him...

fact is, they were the ones in the wrong... I got no problem with those who want to ride, but instead all the "Start Seeing Motorcycles" signs and stickers and shit, maybe the Motorcyclists shouldn't ride like douchebags and they won't get hit... They need to remember that they too need to follow the "rules of the road" just like every other vehicle out there. just cuz you have 2 wheels doesnt mean you have free reign to be an asshole... If someone wants to change lanes, don't block them from it, don't ride inbetween traffic at stop lights so you can take off as soon as the light changes, don't weave in and out of lanes at high speeds, passing between cars and on the shoulders...

the viper logo thing is very common it was kinda a viral movement from internet forums. in 2002-2003 or so on almost all dodge forums there were threads about how the ram head is a truck logo and shouldn't be used on cars or performance cars. as a result a lot of people went with viper logos. the reasoning was: the car is just as much not a viper as it is not a ram truck. it was the only other dodge badge option in that shape. you have to remember there were no companies like Billet Tech making custom badges back then. the viper logos were made in many colors from the factory and could color match to cars to look better or you could choose your complement color where ram head badges were all chrome and stuck out like a sore thumb.

all of the Chicago Dakota R/T club switched to viper logo's. as a result i have one on my truck as well. it is a red one to match my red factory R/T script logos on the tailgate. it's not an up badge, it was a mass internet protest of the ram head badge.

apparently dodge was listening as they split the brands and invented a different logo for cars a couple years later.

Laughing You were worried about the guy belted in 3000 lbs of metal vs a dozen idiots on 2 wheels and no brains. If they would have touched my car it might have turned into Road Bowling. Twisted Evil jocolor

Nope I knew you would be fine, I always worry about the cars when we are travelling in packs. Just takes one fool to mess up and ruin it. I can deal with my car getting smashed to bits but if I ever had to witness any one of you guys cars.... I would lose my mind. Guess I am overprotective like that. Smile

Good pics Tom.
You had me worried, after you posted I sat here and thought about it and was like was I the asshat in this whole thing. The blind spot on the Chargers is a pain for real though.

I appreciate your concern.... Just don't need to worry so much. Cool
I added a round mirror on side mirrors to help with the blind spots.... It helps for sure.

BTW I did not see you cut off any bikes so I think Tom is right on.. they were the just being asshats to you .. Wink

My car inspires asshateritty around it. I can be on the interstate just cruising along and then all of sudden be surrounded by a pack of mini vans and Volvo station wagons that think they are qualifying for the Indy 500 or something.
