Re: Z-Cars and Harley's in WNC
I guess it just goes to show that a$$holes come in 4 wheel varieties, too. Having road raced (legally, open wheel on sanctioned road courses) I would love to see some of those "fast and furious" types take to a track with professional race drivers. Then they'd know how it feels to have someone 6" off your tail and flashing the beams to let you know you're S L O W. I'd also like to see them try to take a cruiser around some of those corners at speed. Did they ever stop to think that *they* were being the dangerous drivers on that road?
I've been stuck behind slow drivers as well. If they are obeying the speed limit, you can't fault them. Pick your spot, realize you are breaking the law by crossing the double yellow and exceeding the speed limit, and take your chances. Just be ready to deal with the possible consequences, and pray that those consequences don't include killing some innocent person coming the other way.
As far as getting out and starting a physical confrontation - man, they must be nuts. Being a few minutes late isn't worth getting killed over. You never know if that guy in the leathers is a poser, or a 1%, or just plain nuts.
