    Ok here you go. This thread is a fun thread. Seeing as all I have been seening around here is doom and gloom.

    Why do people think i like to hear their Harley?

    I hate these aholes who remove the baffles from their bikes because they think it is cool. It is not cool when I am sitting next to you in traffic and you do nothing but rev your motor with you pipes off. Makes me want to put a bullet into that v-twin.

    The next post needs to look like above

    Why do people think I like.... now you finish it and give a reason why. It doesn't have to something that pisses you off it could be fun too.....

    Why do people think I like to ride in their tiny lowered noisy "tuned" cars?
    I hate those little freggin things, they think that because they put 20" wheels or that stupid muffler or put hundreds of lights/neon/strobes or spent $1000 on audio equipment on a piece of $hit then suddenly become in the best car in the world... somtimes I want to pass over those things with my jeep :cool: Every friend of mine that bought a compact car in matter of months transfoms it into a one of those piece of $hit.. then shows to you with pride like it was a Mercedes SLR :rolleyes: I always said to them.... don't even think that I will put my @ss in that thing! AND TURN IT OFF!!! I hate the sound of their exhaust and/or their music @ 250dB :mad:

    Well first of all, I do not sit and rev my Harley in traffic, I do not need the added attention and assumption from people that I am some arrogant azz hole. That said....

    Why do people think I like to listen to their loud ass stereo playing rap music, with enough bass that they could not hear my bike if they wanted too, while they are texting away and not paying attention to the damn traffic, the light and their surroundings. :mad:

    I can't pass this up. I no longer have a Harley but I rode one for about 20 years. My last bike was a 66 Electra Glide with 2 inch drag pipes that never had a baffle in them. They were not for your or anybody else's benefit but mine. I put them on there because I liked the sound not because I gave a dead rats ass what anybody else thought of them because I DIDN'T. Putting a bullet in MY V-Twin would have been a bad mistake on your part.....A very bad mistake.

    Been a few years since this pic was taken.:D

    I'm in

    Why do these kids with the "tuner" compact with the bean can exhuast, thundering sterio, lowered, absolutley have to try, and pick a race with my old 71 Torino when I get it out just to cruise, and relax. I lost it once and buried one in tire smoke. I should not have wasted my time. He did pull up beside me, and ask, Mister, what have you got in that thing. I answered simply, Good old American Iron Son.

    Why do people think I like to listen to their kids video games in a restraunt?

    I mean come on you can't talk to your kids for 30 minutes to an hour and treat them like they exist? The parents sit there drinking and ignoring the kids while they are playing video games and eating or climbing all over the place. I once had someones kid craw up and over the back of the booth into our table and the parents didn't do a dam thing.

    Why do people think I want to hear their freaking cellphone conversations. Why do they think that I may accidentally think they're important, rather than the loud, intrusive, self important, obnoxious asshats that they really are.

    And while I'm on cellphones; people that walk down the street wildly gesticulating, speaking at a near shout look like escapees from the Nut Hut. :rolleyes:

    Why do people think i like to street race or like to decorate my car with neon lighting or like to listen to rap music or like to hear a fartcan exhaust note everytime i take off simply because i drive a sporty compact car that will outperform comparable american cars of its vintage and price range? :rolleyes:

    One of my favorite clients has a Gran Torino. Beautiful car & very powerful, but even my sentra could beat it through a quarter mile, stock vs stock (which i'm not). Of course, in 38 years, my sentra will be scrap, not a fully restored beaut that the owner spent over a month tracking down a "correct" fuel pump for. ;) One day, i'll have to get me a a fartcan for my sentra to make it sound like i'm younger, maybe.

    LOL @ stereotypes!

    Why do people think I want to listen to them whine about what hacks them off?

    :D

    Yeah- think the high points have been hit pretty well.

    Could only add that when someone asks "Did you see the episode of 'Faintly Farnsworth' on TV last night?"- and I reply, "No, I don't watch that show."- that was NOT an invitation to give me a blow-by-blow of the show. If I had said "No- I really like it, but had to rush my goldfish to the vet last night-" THAT might be an invite to tell me all about how Farnsworth and his girlfriend got caught in the penguin hatchery. Otherwise, stifle yourself. If I wanted to watch it- I would.

    Why do people think I like to slam on my brakes so they can merge onto the highway/interstate? Yield means yield. If I could move over to let you in, I would, d!ckcheese!

    My peeve also. Years ago, I got the same s**t with "Cheers" and "Seinfeld" (I don't think he's funny, either). Sorry if anyone liked it but network comedies (or just about everything on the "Big 4) don't interest me in the slightest. Someone would ask me if I saw the latest episode and when I'd inform them that I don't like or watch the show, I'd get that wide-eyed, "you've got to be s**tting me" look. Then the blow by blow of the show would start and I'd walk away telling them to STFU. I've never understood what some people don't understand about "I don't like the f**king show."

    Why do people think I like to be in the left hand lane going 45 in a 70? Drive right, pass left...it's not hard!

    Amen Brother!

    I take I-95 North from Savannah nearly every weekend and the snowbirds doing 60 in the left lane drive me nuts. These asshats are the source of 99% of the traffic jams and they're totally oblivious - even when they've been passed on the right about a zillion times.

    We need an gate somewhere around the Mason-Dixon line that doesn't allow these Northerners to visit the South...
