I just want to remind everyone to watch out for motorcycles/motorscooters, yesterday while riding home on my vespa some douche bag pulled out out in front of me almost causing me to hit him at 40 MPH thank god I was able to stop, my back break locked up, I probably skidded 20 feet. As a reminder you your eyes and ears before changing lanes. Or pulling into traffic if your vision is obstructed please do not pull into traffic someone doing this almost caused a deadly crash (notice I'm not calling it an accident because they should have been using some common sence)

Stay safe and enjoy your weekend

You should have forced him to stop and falcon punched him.

^ Or alternatively you should've slammed onto the gas pedal and broke his back. That would teach him not to speed again.

You should have rammed into at full speed and then run him over a few times after that just to make sure the job was done. Who cares if you kill a human being and go to prison for the rest of your life?

After this happened he did pull over I turned around and yelled at him for a while. Then left becaus I was really angry if I had stayed he would have got had the ever living sh*t beat out of him.

The shoes on the other foot now eh?
Doesn't feel so good to get cut off?

f*cking cyclists and mopedders alike are annoying, they cut in front of me so close, and I have manual brakes, so a panic stop is not possible.
I won't feel bad if someone on a bike/moped becomes one with my grill because They cut me off like that.

First It's not a damn moped, it's a scooter,
second a few bad riders does not mean were all bad at riding.

By the way if it were you that was almost cremed on a motorcycle/motor scooter you would be pissed off too so stop and think before you go spewing your hate!

Motorcycles and scooters can be hard to spot when you're not used to them being around. That's a useful thing to remember regardless of how many wheels you're riding on.

  • So, you were doing 40 .
  • What was your position on the road?
  • The posted limit and type of road you were on?
  • He pulled out in front of you from the Curb, alley, side street, exit ramp, merging lane, car park, or other intersection?
  • Any traffic control signal?
  • You were watching (or doing) what when you became aware of the threat?
  • Your headlamp was on?
  • You were wearing what colour upper garment.
  • The colour of your helmet?
  • The colour of your machine?
  • You were coming from where?
  • You were going where?
  • Weather conditions?

Then why are you on the Road? Motor Scooters are like Bicycles, with a motor, You should be on the shoulder of the road, Where Cyclists belong.

Reminds me of some Dumbass on his bike on the Henday, A 100KM/h ring road, In the fast lane doing sub 10km/h speeds, Almost splattered his dipsh*t ass all over my bumper.

 

Motor Scooter:

Spoiler

 

Moped:

Spoiler

 

It is by no definition of the word, Difficult, To panic stop on a Motor-Scooter, So if you got to the point where a panic stop was difficult, You were obviously going way to fast for the road or you weren't paying any attention to your surroundings.

 

And if I WERE on a Motor Scooter, I'd be in the proper lane, AKA shoulder/sidewalk.

Wrong, easy way to not be seen and become a scene.
If the vehicle has the right to be on the road (can maintain the posted speed limits)
It should be ridden in the main travel portion of the lane.

I still don't think those things should be on the road.

Almost as bad as Cyclists, Going WAAY too slow, and hogging too much Road, then THEY get pissy when you cut them off and overtake them.

This topic was not meant to turn into a argument of who should be on the roads, just to remind you that motorcycles and motor scooters are everywhere so just pay some attention

Part of keep an eye open is making ones self be seen.
Dark (blending) clothing and machine, riding close to the curb is not helping.
Riding close to parked vehicles also temps fate, from opening doors to jerks who have to speed past. Squeezing the rider between parked cars or brushing them into the weeds.
If the Scooter can meet the speed it should (along with mopeds) be in the travel lane where it can be seen.

The problem I find is speeders, who demand the road to themselves.

Who said I was riding close to parked cars? I was wearing a high-visibility jacket, as well as riding in the correct portion of the lane to where anyone watching were they were going could have spotted me.

I'm not talking about on Roadways like that, I was talking more of Highway roads, Stay on the Shoulder.

But on normal city streets, It isn't much of an issue, as they definitely can keep up.

 

Too often do I find people going way too slow on a Highspeed road, Sitting in the fast lane unable to keep up, Just drive on the Shoulder, You get to enjoy going fast and you don't endanger yourself or others..

Well, Here in Alberta, It's legal for them to drive on Highways, I don't understand why though.

Most people will Ride on the Shoulder, Yet every once in a while you get some special someone riding on the road..
