The other option is to be a victim, come home and tell the internet about it and fume over it for the next few years in your head. Viva la passive aggression! ;p

No worries, it doesn't seem like an attack at all. I carry a firearm at all times to protect myself because living in a safe(r) place like Portland doesn't guarantee you safety. Thankfully I've had...

Yeah, even considering the jump in cost of living I'll still be making more. It's an enticing deal. Thanks very much for your post about riding in SF. I must admit I've never been into "bike culture"...

This should've ended right here. All you ever have to do anytime a driver rolls up and says something like this is give them the "thumbs down" with your hand, and ride off. Never say a word, just...

"real riders" ? "man up" ? Say what? I think you missed the points of t27 and Lester. They aren't saying avoid those paths, they're saying slow down and mind your manners. I may not try to race...
