  1. Last night heading home along the Warrego Hwy, comin up to my exit lane a car flys up along side me and decides with about 50 meters to exit lane he wants in (keeping in mind there is no traffic in front or behind me) he jams on breaks flys into my lane forcing me on breaks and over the white lines on side of highway.. Sick of impatient a$$holes who couldnt give a crap about other road users!!!! It also happens alot with people just not looking argh!! Vented..

  7. It's just pure ignorance of the performance capabilities of crotch rockets.

    Which is a good thing in a way. If regular people (i.e. wowsers) knew we had access to Bugati Veyron like acceleration for $16,490 ride away, we'd probably have a 100 bhp limit like la France. :)
