I'm all for sharing the road, but bicyclists who want to ignore Sir Isaac Newton make me crazy and annoyed. All the time I see them on roads with 55 mph or faster speed limits riding 2 or 3 abreast and ignoring the shoulder. Come around a corner or cresting a hill and the road is completely blocked and traffic coming the other way. WTF do they think is going to happen?

When they have to pay registration and insurance like I do AND are subject to traffic fines like I am, I'll share.

This is sad...

"data cited recently by FiveThirtyEight pointed out that 51% of Americans say they never ride bikes, and 6% don’t even know how to ride bikes. Folks in the Northeast are particularly likely to be clueless on bikes—sadly, 12% say they don’t know how to ride, compared with just 3% in Midwest."

I can't imagine not knowing how to ride a bike or knowing how and never doing it.   :o

Most bicyclists get really animated when you brush them with a fender.  ;D

A few years ago while going thru one of the local round a bouts a group of three or four cyclists (all outfitted in the latest/tightest cyclist fashions) "merged" in on me except one who was trailing the pack by a couple lengths. He about ran into the rear quarter of the Jetta and placed his left hand on the trunk and held on to catch up. I didn't really care much for the deal, so dropped down a gear and romped on the go pedal. It had been a while since the TDI had been wound out, so the ensuing cloud of diesel smoke was substantial. Last seen, the cyclist had not caught up with his buddies, pulled over to the side of the street to clear his lungs, and had released his hold on the rear of my car quickly.

Typically, I don't have any issue with cyclists, but many disregard any/all traffic laws, run stop signs with abandon, and ride on the wrong side of the road knowing full well if you hit them, it WILL be the drivers fault.
This street bike thing is all new to me.
Snowmobiles-I have a bunch of those.

I don't think I'll have any problems staying out of someone's way with my bike.  It has an engine and I know how to use it. ;)

End users, the bane of our existence..   Course without them, where would we be?

I hate it when you update Java and other products that they helpfully include other products as well.  They even check the boxes for you.  How Fn helpful.

I love it when they update Java, then some of their apps fail.   ;D  Who said you could update Java?  8)
