So yes if they hold me up I will lay some black diesel smoke all over them.
My bad, I missed that.
Just like any other gropu of people, there are exceptions.

I hope none of you have a heart condition because this will send you're heart rate up a notch.....I don't stop for stop signs unless there are other cars at or approaching the intersection. The only exception for stopping at stop lights are ones that are weight triggered. Other wise I stop at every single one, in my proper lane as if I were a car. If it's really busy traffic and I'm at a wieght triggered one I'll just move up past the stop line and have the car behind me activate it. If it's not busy traffic, I'll treat eat as a stop sign.
Here's a dilemma that I always wonder about when I'm riding. Would you rather me obey the law completely and make a complete stop, foot off the pedal then start up again if I were the first vehicle to the sign? I'm sure you wouldn't. I still stop, but I'm sure most of you would pissed that I wasted your time being legal and making a complete stop. Just like being legal and riding on the road.
