    So was getting down in to my aero bars and a car decided to park in the bike lane. So looked up to a stopped car and braced for impact. I mean I should've seen him but he had to have passed me and seen me before he parked in the bike lane. I took out his driver side mirror and some other damage. Which he's now trying to get me to pay for. Solid Thursday!

    If that fucking fucker ends up making you pay for his mirror after parking in the bike lane, I give up on society. Taking my wife and kids and getting the fuck out to a shack or igloo somewhere.

    @Jason41 absofuckinglutely not. Get your car insurance involved stat. Also, get a police report filed NOW. Bike lane parking is a no-fault crash zone in most states.

    Careful mixing booze and pills. Knew a guy who experienced uncontrollable diarrhea while he was getting down with hi girlfriend in a sleeping bag because he rolled his eyes when the pharmacist told him "don't drink on this medication".

    Unlike button? Hope it's a quick recovery. People who do stuff like that and point blame are special kind of stupid.

    @Jason41 That really sucks! I hope everything works out in your favour...there was a guy in my hometown that recently ran into a car with his bike and ended up having to pay $6200...

    I once had a guy try to run me off the road insisting that I was blocking traffic. I was on this stretch of road for 1/4 mile and hammer it all the time and typically get up to about 25-30. The speed limit is 35. Guy followed me after I turned off the road to let me know his disdain for cyclist and how they don't pay taxes for the roads.

    The ignorance of some is astounding.

    Hope this passes quick and doesn't affect you financially too much. This is why I hate riding in city limits. Not as worried about my handling but for my one there are 10 other vehicles out there not paying attention or giving a crap
