I hate when people think all bikers are criminals. Not everyone who rides a motorcycle is in the Hells Angels people.....lol

With the leather and beards and stuff I can understand why people think that way, but people need to be a little more open minded about things. Now, get a bunch of them drunk.....that could be a different story....

I ride a bike, (albeit a small trail bike until I get my full license).

I also have long hair. and I have tattoos.

I've had a few near misses as well with my bike and people just pulling out.
but it kind of goes with the territory when you get on a bike you almost expect there to be trouble. you have to be so much more vigilant and aware on a bike than you do in a car.

agreed. I ride a bicycle in the street, and will keep up with traffic in a 25 mph zone. I'm sick of people treating cyclists (and bikers) like crap, and people not paying attention to us because we have a mere 2 wheels (I've been told to get on the sidewalk so a guy could make a left hand turn. I told him I am a vehicle and I have the right to the road, but he is only privileged to use it.)

I think I've filed about 6 police reports this year. Takes me like 5 minutes, and then when they hit someone and are sued its more likely that they will get their ass handed to them because there is more evidence supporting their reckless negligence.
