I like to freak em out by honking my horn. Talk about ready made victims for “the knockout game”.

ahaha this clown was decked out in SPANDEX on a bike that cost several times that of the first car I owned...
a real lance armstrong wanna be.

Oh man, a segway user texting, while riding... how about across train tracks into heavy traffic... in front of a cop car... more could be done with this... what a photo op...
Electronic pacifier PING!
Darwin award PING
Anyone got a picture of a Segway user with a Starbucks coffee in one hand, Google glasses, and a cellphone in the other?
