Too many use the merge lane to pass, ie. drive to the end and try to barge their way in rather than to find a gap to pull out. Too many also seem to be incapable of matching their speed to the traffic in the lane they are merging into. Finally, w.t.f. is peoples problems with using turn-signals? Are they just too  :censored: lazy or are they just plumb  :censored: ignorant?

Both.  Plus, they have their phones in their left hands, of course.

Florida has BY FAR the worse offenders when it comes to not using their turn signals! I believe that once a car is sold and license for use in this state that the turn signal fuse is pulled so that, just in case by shear accident, if someone forgets and attempts to use their signal, it won't work, just like every other Florida driver.

Not using signals is not an offence to be pulled over for in VA, however if not using signals and you cause an accident...well then, that's quite different.  The law was changed several years ago.


Speaking of VA...Lane sharing is dead, using handheld devices whilst driving is on the way to becoming law.  Right, I can see people being pulled over right and left over this one...not.  But at least they are trying.

Members on the forum going after one another...that's what makes me crazy and annoyed.  I'm not expecting kumbaya but I think being sequestered at home has something to do with it with this Covid s**t going on around us.  We're here together for the love of motorcycles (especially two - C10 and C14).  Most of us have that in common and whilst we may disagree with each other on how certain things are being handled and by whom, let's try to keep that in the background of our posts (as in not visible) or in the Arena where you can tear each apart if you want (virtually of course).


Stay safe out there...

Welcome back. However keeping on topic, your avatar is somewhat annoying. You know things were a lot more peaceful around here when you had the old one with the sword held on high. Could be related, could be.  ;)

You know, I think that you are right.  I've been toying with the idea of getting an Angel sword covered with flames.  I'll see what I can come up with.


This will have to do for now..

The sword is long enough, I'll grant you that.  But he isn't waving it around getting ready to chop a head off.  Wrong emblem on the front as well...

No need for further searching unless you can find a gif of what you have there now, an animated gif with just a hint of sword movement ...it will be perfect.

Eeew, don't do that.  Animated gif/png/etc are so annoying I have to disable it in the browser settings (thank God that is possible)!
