Spicersh and I live in a fairly quiet neighborhood (with the exception of Crackie and her Shania Twain music), but in the last week we've had some new arrivals - there is a house for sale up the block a ways, and while it's on the market, the owners are renting it out.
The new renters? A chick in her early 20's and her Chrysler convertible, airbrushed front vanity plate, loud music and fast driving. And the male of the group: Squidly McSquiddius.
I got a peek at a new bike out front of this house yesterday and drooled a little: 2006 Gixxer 750. I got a peek at the rider yesterday evening - we live about 100 yards up our street off of the "main drag" and this asshat is doing 50, easily, by the time he gets to our house.
I see (hear) Squidly this morning doing the same damn thing, then five minutes later heading out. In shorts. And a t-shirt. And a backwards hat. Revving it out.
*sigh* This is a residential area with SMALL kids, two under two across the street from each other, and elderly people as well. I am scared to death that one of the babies (with Mom, of course) will be crossing the street and this dickwad will come tear-assing off the main drag, and guess what's going to happen???
I don't want to be "That Lady in the Neighborhood", but damn, there is a track not 20 minutes from us that can be used for trackdays! A neighborhood with a 20 mph speed limit is NOT the place to be winding out a sportbike. I guess the only thing I can say is that he probably won't last too long on the bike.
So for all you noobs - behave yourselves in residential areas! Even fellow riders get pissed when you're acting like a squid - you give us all a bad name!!!
