I'm OK with bikes. Most bikers are OK. Some are jerks and they know who they are. I almost killed a jerk not too long ago. I'm out west of Beaverton on a back way home. 55 miles per hour posted and that's how fast I was going. I'm on a back road without a bike lane and no shoulder either. I came up over a rise and low and behold a bicyclist doing 10 miles an hour in the middle of the road. I slammed my brakes hard enough to engage the anti-lock and barely missed him. I honked which of course automaticly brought out the middle finger of the guy I almost killed. I'll tell you this, if there was someone coming from the other direction I would have killed him. Why do bicyclist insist on riding thier bike where they can't get off the road? After all most of them are biking for pleasure/exercise so why not pick roads that have a shoulder or bike lane? Get out of our way. After all we don't drive our cars in their bike lane. There ought to be a law but they tend to ignore those anyway...
