i sometimes kiss triple digits in the M on the highway but slow back down to 75-80...

I get major anxiety when I see people driving fast past 85mph and then are driving a beater or shitty car. Like you better hope your tires and wheels are aligned and balanced.

Thats what scares me....people who in cars that have no business on the road, pacing me in my m3

Spot on about Toyotas. They are the worst of all. Next though would be minivans in general. No one buys a minivan because they enjoy driving. They own it to haul crap and, unlike pickups, even car makers don't pretend they are more than just boxes on wheels.

These dudes often travel at speeds above the flow of traffic and lane split, then they get pissy when people don't see them. Defensive driving isn't a thing to them, victim complex and entitlement is.

Sparking clean SUVs with rhinoceros bars in the front that clearly have never been off road and never will.

My son is a skateboarder and the term he would use is "poser".

What track events are you talking about which would have both cars and bikes on the same track? Drag strip?

No kidding. I don't remember exactly if the guy was riding a Harley or a chopper since this was a while ago. But I was a witness to some older guy on a cruiser type bike chasing a guy in a car in a parking lot. Don't know what the guy in the car did to royally piss off this guy. But the rider was flaming made yelling obscenities at the driver. Eventually, the driver was able to dart out of the parking lot onto the road and took off with the pissed off rider giving chase.

Not to stereotype. But the rider was older but looked as if he's seen some street action if you know what I mean.

Any car with flame decals on the side or lots of chrome stick on pieces from Auto Zone and I automatically assume they're a tool lol.

Unless the flame decals are on a rat rod... then it's legit.

I always hate driving through one of the small towns near me when school has just let out for the day. Still have so many with Fast and Furious mentality.

Cars sound like they are running triple digit speed while trying to get around the SUV and minivan mom's especially at red lights.

I myself fit the cliche of driving a Corvette....but usually cruising slightly slower than the speed limit. Never thought I would be that guy.

I remember when younger looking at someone behind the wheel of a Corvette and wonder why they weren't beating the he'll out of it....lol.

Most of the BMW's around here are 325's that someone has stuck M badges all over it.

I agree with the lifted truck/BMW generalizations. I would add that Lexus drivers are pretty slow, like slower than Prius drivers.

Having both a BMW and a Prius, I can see how differently other drivers treat me depending on which car I drive. I can also say I don't fit the generalizations for either vehicle.

Lol again this thread is just about generalizations. Stereotypes exist for a reason but they aren't always true.

I tend to agree, despite having a Ninja myself. The reckless ones almost always lack gear, which I find ironic. Often they are riding around in shorts and a t-shirt, usually riding an older 600cc supersport.

I was always a defensive driver when I had my CBR. I gave it up years ago when my daughter was born. But I always at least had some upper gear on especially after seeing my cousin go through a very hard time wearing what you mentioned above.

He just layed it down when a dog ran out in front of him. If he had been properly dressed, he would have been fine for the most part. But he ended up with road rash everywhere!
