There’s a reason the spandex ragers don’t do that in Texas.

He is a supporter of same-sex marriage, so it’s okay.

I’d like to assault the 6 idiots in spandex who thought a stop sign at a State Highway wasn’t meant for bike riders, even if there was a 5 ton truck 200 feet away doing 55 mph.

alleged beating

twice they use that phrase. Why? The beating is not alleged, only the perp is given the benefit of the doubt.

The body of east coast cyclist, from Kentfield, was discovered at Point Reyes National Park, today. The remains were found at Limatour Beach, by passerbys. Shark bite deaths, are common in the area.

When I taught my daughter to drive, I pointed out one of those spandex bike fags. I told her to avoid them at all costs and give them a wide berth because you never know what they are going to do, they think they own the road and act like it and they are likely to be stark raving nuts.

And I meant it.

Back in the early 80’s the youngest boy, who was in high school at the time,got tired of the spandex-nazis riding in clusters instead of single file, and other obnoxious acts.

He filled the windshield washer reservoir on his rabbit with an ammonia and water mix and redirected the nozzles to spray to the right side.

Cruising down the valley road and coming upon a group of puffing poofters and a couple of squirts from the re-purposed windshield washers would cause all sorts of grief and agony among the gaggle of bikers.

He finally got found out and I had to make yet another effort to keep him out of the Sheriff’s clutches.

God, I loved that kid.

Funny. My old man used to put fox piss in his. Dam. He would spray that on ‘different’ types of people.

Um, the ones you described are nuts. They believe their riding a bike instead of an internal combustion engine vehicle is a religious act, making them of ‘higher mind’. But not all bikers are such nutters.

The plot thickens.

The driver went to the hospital and was released in one hour. It turns out he was not “beaten” by Mr Smock - he passed out because his blood alcohol level was .27, over three times the legal limit. The pickup truck swerved and hit Smock with the mirror. Smock yelled at the driver who then stopped the car, took a swing at Mr Smock, tripped over his own feet, and landed face first onto the pavement, then passed out in his own blood.

Smock was released without charges after the blood alcohol results were obtained, but the driver was not cited for DUI.

Stop confusing this thread by:
(a) Actually reading the posted article
(b)Annoyingly harping upon factual data in your post.

While perfectly true that real men do not wear Spandex, (unless like Gigolo Jean Kerry they have a Billion$ Ketchup Fortune they got from marrying a dead real guy's weird widow) Also true that bike homos are generally testy because they tend to have prostate trouble from their man-dildo bike seats, but this fegela biker dude showed some balls in watching the drunk fall on his face and NOT thrashing him with his man-purse, or kicking him when he was down with his cute little Gucci pedal-locking shoes. Purple and white?

Also, this being Marin County, the drunk driver was probably gay, as were the arresting girl and boy officers. Mr. Smock (doubtless né "Schmuck") is free to go in peace and in Spandex.

PS, as this "Green" fag-biking thing becomes more popular, one would think that our down-low POTUS would invest in a man's bike. And while he's at it, even Spandex would be preferable to the Mom Jeans. Kerry must have a spare pair.

Wow there sure are a lot of asshats on this thread. What the heck is wrong for having a little courtesy for a group of riders? Or for ONE?

What’s so funny about burning an unsuspecting cyclist’s eyes with ammonia or piss? Is it funny because he’s riding a bicycle? “Whoa! Gee! How un-American! Let’s shoot the “fag” bastards!”

I’d like to see the places switched... Asswipes (like this drunk SOB) in massive SUVs (very important to get to Wal-Mart on time, and just a few blocks away so they can afford the gas!) yappin’ on the cellphone, sippin’ caramel macchiatos running YOU bitches over, leaving your kids fatherless, just because you DARE to ride LEGALLY on the white line with all the broken glass from bitch-ass rednecks and multicolor urban trash.

Threads like this make us so-called “conservatives” smell like fox-piss. There’s nothing wrong with sharing the road, and if it drives you absolutely bonkers to have to wait a few seconds for a convenient opportunity to pass a cyclist, just imagine he may be a FReeper like ME

...And enjoy your poorly-performing taxpayer subsidized ridiculously inefficient “big ole truck” while you have another sip of your faggoty-assed caramel macchiato as your wife stares at my legs.

I guess you think the bike riders always have the right-of-way and people aren't out using their "big ole truck" to make a living and properly obeying posted traffic laws.

I'd be the one at fault if I hit and killed them when they run a stop sign because they think that a 30 pound bike and a spandex suit will stop a moving automobile.

Your comment only bolsters the view of those who've had to almost wreck and kill themselves to avoid hitting some group of "asshats" on bicycles that refuses to obey a stop sign. It sure did mine.

Some riders are inconsiderate. They deserve tickets, and they get them. For my part, as a driver, I give “extra” consideration to riders. You don’t have to - you are only required legally to “share the road.”

But if you have to almost wreck because you can’t see a bike, or a kid - much less a “group” of them - maybe you should slow down before you do something you can’t take back.

Lets review. Driver and “avid cyclist” get into a dispute over whether the driver’s mirror contacted the bike. Witnesses report avid cyclist attacks the driver, beats him and refuses to stop even after he is unconscious. Obviously Avid cyclist has road rage issues. Then another avid cyclist follows up with posting rage issues.

How dare you impugn my choice of beverage as I wield my own trusty TREK to Wal-MArt? Nothing like a frothy caramel macchiato to stoke up while listening to my Mantovani on my I-pod, weaving the olde TREK in and out of stuck four-wheelers with coolth and élan!

As President of the Non-Spandex Bikers (NSB), my trick euro-gauntlet is down, Sir! However, I am touched by your impassioned defense of us bikers and am selling my Escalade as soon as I can clean out the beer cans, the Snapple bottles, the MacDonald's wrappers, the cigarette butts, the gnawed chicken wings, the 4 sheets of 5/8th drywall, the used Pampers, the empty pints of Jim Beam, and remove the odd bits of Spandex stuck to the offside rear-view mirror struts. The NRRA, Tea Party, and Impeach Obama bumper-stickers might be a problem.

In re ....wife stares at my legs..... I am sure that my bike club and yours can negotiate some sort of aerodynamic Spandex modesty cover that will keep her from temptation.

Yo, Attitude, read the frickin' article.

The driver was drunk, confronted the biker, tripped over his own feet, and fell on his own face w/o being struck by said biker.

The real point of the story: Drunk Driver not cited. (a) he waS DOUBLE+ the legal Blood Alcohol Level
(b) His vehicle struck a biker.
(c)An intelligent question: Why did the cops turn THAT guy loose?

This is the kind of guy that not only endangers bicyclists who may, or may not be, be light-in-the-loafers, but also big tough surly real-man Harley Drivers, who are struck and maimed at a far greater rate than bicyclists, and may also be, or not be, light-in-the-loafer themselves....even in Brooklyn.

You’re making awful big assumption about my driving habits.

In 43 years of driving about 2 million miles without an accident I’ve never had a group of kids run a stop sign on a state highway in front of me.

Perhaps their Sense of Smug hasn’t fully developed

“Yo, Attitude, read the frickin’ article.”

I did read the original article, none of the info you cited was in it and which paints a very different picture.
