I am so sorry your feelings were hurt, now, how about showing me those "hateful" words that you are referring to(other than the joke about tossing rocks)
thank you to the rest for providing decent advice, although the tone you convey through text is still a little dickish.If you check that the vast majority of those people were backing me up
so yes, i will not be going by bike;Yay !! i'll save that for another year when I get early arrival because i know for sure that it is possible then.
fuck you.same to you buddy
please don't go to burning man.Not likeley to happen, a court order wouldn't keep me away
we don't need people like you there. if it wasn't for people like me there, Burning Man would be nothing but unicorns, disco balls, rainbows and bouncehouses.
And there it is, you're not going...Good.
It didn't really matter to me as I will have already been there a week by the time your little bike tour finally shows up.
All of the advice I gave is exactly how I feel about it, and I never called you names while giving you my advice, even if you choose to not take it.
The majority of the people responding were saying the exact thing thing I was saying , why do you find my opinion so much more dickish than thiers ?
Do you not like my little dancing dude in my sig ?
Oh well, not that it matters, since you aren't going anyhow.
BTW, I drive with a clean CDL in my backpocket (17 years, no ticket)and I have a LOT more experience handling a large overweight vehicle than most here and the situation that I described would not get me charges higher than a "driving too fast" ticket if I even were to get that, and prolly no manslaughter charge would even happen even if you were to die, since your death would have just been a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
And once again , I would have to choose hitting you over having a head on with someone else, and possibly killing myself, my girlfriend, and everyone else in the other vehicle heading my way.
You are really dumb if you can't see the logic in that statement, sure I might feel bad for a while if I killed you, but I would never forgive myself for making the decision to not hit some stupid biker was why I no longer have my loved one at my side.
Not to mention the people in the other car.
I drive 50-55 miles and hour tops on that road and all those other dumbasses that I was warning you about(your real risk) don't, in fact they are the ones passing me so they can arrive 20 minutes earlier than me at the gate. And also they are the one's that would more than likely hit you because of thier poor driving habits.
And once again, none of this matters, since you aren't going anyhow, right ?
Next time you want your questions answered by people with experience in the matter, why don't you post it up on facebook ?
well, I better get out of the way now, there is a car coming down the road and I don't wanna get hit...
