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.
