Every time I mention the fact that I hate motorcycles I get unprecedented hate mail, but I don't care...
Motorcycles are way too dangerous.
And the people that ride them can be asshats.

I agree Dan! Too many of them are total asshats! At least the first guy was wearing his helmet...that seems to be a rarity!

That first one was priceless. The second guy deserved it.
I'm going to go ahead and give my link here, send me your hate mail. bikers.

Well, I hate them too, so hatemail away, bike-tards. I saw a horrible accident between 2 bikers--neither of them wearing helmets--in which one of them was killed, when I was about 7, and it kind of turned me off motorcycles. FOREVER.
Both of those clips made me laugh.

Well, as I kid I really loved them. And they are sweet in movies. So I do not hate them.
However, whenever the weather gets nice, people decide to cruise with the loud farting and opening up the throttle on the busy street my apartment faces. And then the car alarms all go off, good for them. Also I saw some tool and his girlfriend last weekend, and they were having a retarded couple argument like they were in a car, but since they were outside on a bike, we could all hear them.
I remember being told the rationale behind no helmets from a biker being “if you get an accident you will probably be paralyzed, so it’s better to die.” Wow.
But remember that there is a big biker ride for Toys For Tots.

I like motorcycles just fine. It's the idiots ON them that are the problem.

I'm guessing these were posted solely for my benefit?
I try to be careful riding and I'm not an asshat.
Plus, you have to love the biker wave.

What I hate is fucking goddam Harleys. There is no reason for their loudness. They claim it's for safety, but all that damn noise comes out the BACK of the bike. If you're in a car ahead them, you can't hear it until they are very close anyway.
What you need for safety, all you asshats, is better visibility, not more noise.
And I don't care what your excuse is, if you drive something that loud through a residential area, you are a belligerent asshole, no questions asked.
Aside from that, well, I prefer a nice quiet scooter, driving very safely, and wearing a helmet.

Reminds me of the joke Eddie Izzard tells.
"They say guns don't kill people. People kill people. But I think the guns help."
Motorcycles are just fine, as long as they're parked.

Excellent work Dan! I heard one person call motorcyclists MOD's once - Mobile Organ Donors. Although I also agree with Riograce & Jeff. Unfortunately you'll always get these morons who ride like they want to kill themselves but usually hurt other people.

Here's a good alternative....

I hate 'em too. I especially love the "motorcyclists as victims - share the road" crap. They basically ignore every rule of the road but then whine that cars aren't looking out for them.

When my 15-year old was two or three, he was motorcycle crazy. He asked me once when he could get one. I've always been scared to death of anything bigger than my Yamahopper, so I told him not until after I was dead. A couple days later he asked his mother when I was going to die. Now, with gas costing what it does, I'm seriously considering buying a little 50cc motorcycle to ride back & forth to work. Never say never, I guess.
Oh, and I love Eddie Izzard. Got to see him live onstage a few years back at the Pantages in Minneapolis during his "Circle" tour. Hilarious.

I didn't plan on getting into this debate, but...
First, the bikes in these clips are not motorcycles, they're crotch rockets. Those guys are "asshats."
Second, while I'm not necessarily a fan of motorcycles, sometimes it's not the bikers that are the idiots on the road. My dad was killed a month ago while riding his bike. He was obeying every possible law (helmet included) and some asshole in a Volvo SUV turned right into because he wasn't paying attention. Julie, in this case, the car really wasn't looking out for him.
