People who jump in the road at you.

Ok so the millionth time someone has jumped in the road at me or someone I was riding with. I think I'm missing something? Why do people do this? Are they just that excited to see a moped?

I bet hitting someone at 30 mph would hurt you as much as them.

i had a kid fishing on a bridge pretend to cast his line straight at me as i rode by, i felt like stopping and throwing him off the bridge but i didnt.. prolly should have though

Re: People who jump in the road at you.

Yeah this happens to us all the time. always either drunk bro douche. or sketch ass guy who has obviously decided that your little bike looks like a lot of fun and he would like to own one that very second. unfortunately the latter is usually the case. we all carry ASP's now. that makes people not want to run at you.

I know right? I'm always like "yo dude hands off! let's high five!"

Re: People who jump in the road at you.

I always stop turn around stare at 'em and make 'em think I'm hangry. Then I give 'em a hug. Works everytime 60% of the time.

Re: People who jump in the road at you.

i hate when im hangry

Re: People who jump in the road at you.

I have had people jump at me, but i find myself doing it when I see mopeders I don't recognize in my home town...usually followed by a "LET'S RIDE SOME TIME"

Alcohol activates old brain... as in: A throw back to the days we (as a group) ran down and tackled 4 legged pray...what?

Re: People who jump in the road at you.

Ask the drunk at Nashville how he feels about jumping in front of mopeds and trying to snatch someone off their bikes... He got 2 nice high fives to the face with a helmet. Haha.

Re: People who jump in the road at you.

Sounds like a sure fire Death wish ta me !

Re: People who jump in the road at you.

one time some dipshit did this to me while i was on my bicycle. he actually brushed my right arm when he made his move. it scared the shit out of me and pissed me off. i circled back via side streets. i waited until i was certain he was intent on walking forward undisturbed . i blasted behind him, not letting up as to not let him hear my freewheel clicking. when i got about 20 feet from him, i screamed. as he jumped and turned around, i rode by and stiff-armed him. he fell hard on his ass, and i just laughed my way home.

Re: People who jump in the road at you.

this just happened to me tonight when I was riding past a pool around sunset. the guy was making a weird gesture and acted like he was going to walk in front of me, so I swerved toward him.

Re: People who jump in the road at you.

I thought it was just me.

I had a guy act like he was going to punch me

I had some BU idiots try this in Boston last week. I just accelerate, maintain my line, and watch them dive for cover
