In the USA we like big, fast cars. Our streets are larger than Europe
and gas is less than half the price of Europe. Right now we can buy a
gallon for $1.65 US or 1.2 GBP
Some of us do buy inexpensive economical cars, many of us like larger
more luxurious cars with lots of goodies. I drive about 23,000 miles a
year so I want to do it in comfort. Fact is, I can spend a lot less and
still get to my destination. My choice was luxury.
My last motorcyle trip was to Flin Flon Manitoba with a
friend back in July

and considering continuing on but said 'nah' , we'll go back
Funny thing though. All the way up to FF and back we were
asked 'where you
going?' . When we said FF the standard answer was ' are you
crazy? are you
nuts? nobody goes to FF! '. Even from a RCMP cop and at the
booth in International Falls Minn.! But it was a good trip

A lady in a mini-van looked straight at a motor cyclist coming towards
her in the opposite lane and still turned left in front of him. The guy
on the motor cycle ended up laying the motor cycle down on it's side and
he got injured. She did stop at that point and took responsibility for

Cindy once remarked to her dentist that she didn't know what would be worse - having a baby, or having a tooth pulled.
The Dentist replied, "Well make up your mind, Cindy - because I need to know which way to position the chair."
There are so many absent minded jerks.
One has to see and be seen on the road, specially dark colored cars.
Another one, signal flashing on and on without changing lane or turning.
Or not signalling at all. I can adjust auto light sensor sensitivity
if I need to on my car.
It is a peeve of mine too. I figure it is just stupidity. Fortunately,
many cars now have automatic lights that overcome dumb drivers.
Last week I was on the highway on a dark, rainy, early morning. The
