Nice view point and yes we need to watch out for cagers however its a two way street and with windows up they cant even hear emergancy vehicles. As for the pipes well how about tinted windows of the cagers.. I like to hear what others think about us but please I have a whip (weighted) to smack cars with or open their windows for them should one get out of tune.

That is just the opinion of one moron.
I spent many years riding motorcycles up and down Rt 12 between Jewett City and Norwich and of all the nincompoops I have had to deal with all over this country, except for one teenager in a gas station in Taftville that cut me off in the rain pulling into a gas station, I can't remember ever having any difficulty navigating in those towns. Good riding country, easy access to the casinos, the ocean, cool summer roads shaded under big oaks for miles.
That ignorant fool is just that, both ignorant and a fool... and this was just a different opinion from a different moron.

That obviously biased opinion is something that we bring on ourselves.
The whole loud pipes save lives attitude leads to some of the disrespect that person is showing, even if only 1 person in 10 modifies their exhaust to "sound better".
Another place that we challenge and thus get attitude in return is people thinking it is OK to go at maximum speed through the twisties while often going double or more the posted speed limit.
We trigger attitudes just like the one showing up in that letter to the editor precisely because we are arrogant enough not to see things from the cager's perspective.
If we, as a group, acted with restraint and respect for other drivers and our neighbors, we would have less trouble with them.

It is not the cager that needs an attitude adjustment, we need to recognize that we are just a part of society and our preferences will never be placed first because there are so few riders.

Yeah, that attitude's not okay. That sort of logic justifies whoever has the biggest rig has the most right-of-way. I see no more motorcyclists behaving foolishly than cagers in traffic. EVERYONE needs to be considerate and concerned with EVERYONE else on the road.

If his rules applies then that means my 80k loaded semi trumps his 2k cage. Hmmm. ;D wonder what his opinion of that would be.

Where to begin.

I imagine I'll take a swing at the notion that motorcyclists don't respect car drivers. I drive a car, a truck, another truck, a 10 wheeler, a dozer and a hoe, a good sized excavator, a White with a lo-boy and that's some of the stuff I pay for the tags on. I have run 200t hydraulic cranes down the highway and some fairly squirrelly loads of iron on flatbeds. I was respectful of other drivers, and concerned for motorcyclists. Why? I am one of any of the above.

The horses ass that spouted that malarkey is a moron and the type of moron that would no more consider the issues germaine to motorcyclists than the man in the moon. So let's dispense with blaming motorcyclists for not being receptive to the needs of motorists. We are motorists. The kind of jerk that spews that venom is not a motorcyclist.

There are ample studies and reams of data that define clearly that in multiple vehicle accidents involving motorcycles and autos, the majority of fault determinations are on the autos. If you want to carry some kind of guilt for our species or whatever motivates you to seek to validate that POV be my guest but don't include Pop. I am not inclined to defend the idiot behavior of others that statistically can result in me getting scraped off the roadbed.
