) last Sept 04 , finally made his way back to motorcycling and some needed road therapy. Steven hosted a Coalinga Memorial Ride with his riding buddies of many miles and years along with some familiar faces.
I did not want to miss his first and very anticipated ride, decided to take my gurl along since she has always heard of Coalinga
so now she knows where I spend alot of my weekend
We were on the middle of the right lane of the freeway with no traffic near us but enough to NOT warrented the speeds these two idiots were running. Dammm idiots come flying like they were running from the po po at least
100 mph...I would guess my speed at the time was 70+ ...if I had stuck out my left arm I would have lost my hand cause that was how close they buzzed us
two things came to mind. WISH I didn't have my gurl on the back and dammm if they are going to splatter their guts up and down the freeway. Couldn't they choose another area to do it in??
Of course standard attire was jeans/sneakers and t-shirt on one with the other a jacket of some sort
Saw the group again when we headed home from Coalinga..and they had the nerved to wave...yeah..I got a wave for ya buddy

This is something that is always going to be around. It happens to me almost everytime I head out on a busy freeway. We have to live with it, period. Sheesh, I even had a full dress Gold Wing trying show me how he/she could duck in and out of cars.
In a free world, you are going to have azzholes. Pure and simple. We do have to learn how to live with it without blowing our cool. I am glad you did have your girl with you, because most likely you would have tore out after the nutcase. Two wrongs don't make a right!!
We can console ourselves with the thought that riders like that have a short ride span. The law of averages are going to catch up with them.
As long as we stay COOL(like you did on that ride), and do our thing, we be okay..
