Love my Stebel(s)!

Yesterday as I was driving in the car to work a womble in a POS Commodore pulled out of a business's driveway and attempted to steal my particular piece of the road.  I ended up actually having to swerve - something I don't like to do as who knows where you're heading when you do that - if I had simply braked I would still have worn a Commodore.


Fast forward to today and I rode to work on the DL.  Riding down the same road I spotted a small red shopping trolley getting ready to pull out of another business.  After the previous day's adventure I buttoned off and prepared to have to get out of the way.  Sure enough, the driver just kept on coming.  I easily avoided her and was able to give the Stebel a good ole workout!  The driver immediately pulled off to the left and as I rode off I could see her cringing in her seat - I think she thought a Kenworth was about to park on her!  Love my Stebel - hate morons in cars!

  1. Ha I see the problem here. The vision of the straight stretch is so good that there couldn't possibly be anyone coming so i'll just pull out, and if there does just happen to be someone coming then they'll see me and swerve to avoid me cause they are obviuosly not driving to the conditions. LOL

    1. Actually that's just a Google image. At 7:30 in the morning there's quite a few vehicles parked on the side of the road restricting drivers' vision.

      Quite often a bus pulls out on me there too...

  2. Stebels are especially great when the offenders have their windows open.

    Troubadour has one on his Tiger and bought one for my Gladius last year - although it isn't yet installed.
