It's a turista town, bubba, ergo, expect turista behavior. Again, this is news ? They are sun-dosed, sunburned, wandering, clueless, goofy smiles, their kids are going off & omg ! they miss a few of the directional lines on the pavement.
When you rant about the turistas it just makes it seem like you are the one who doesn't get it. Or, it's that time of the month ?
It is what it is. If these people who are on vacation bother you, dude, you're in stress-mode & you're not in a good place.

I can respect both your comments. Its pretty ridiculous how the brain shuts off and the tourists ride 2 feet from getting mauled by a car while their children cruise behind in a two wheeled carriage. It annoys me just as much but, like yankee is saying, it is every year and yes, it is expected. There are some dumb, idiotic, mindless people in the world. Just gotta deal with it....

If you're referring to the bike riders on the way to sandbridge and on those back roads, then I fully understand where you're coming from man.

Pay close attention to the people who rent those 6 person bikes. They must not have those in India.... I almost want to throw the driver a couple rupees and have him take me to the pier!
But yeah... bad bike operation is usually because they are so SMASHED! 100 bikes in front of watermans + 1000 orange crushes * 50 other joints at the beach = total sh*t show in the bike lane.
IF you think that's bad, go to Amsterdam. Hell, go to amsterdam anyways just for the hookers and drugs

That being said, I spent most of my time in VA Beach bike commuting and praying some a$$hole didn't run me over every single day. Perhaps the bike riders at the inlet are kooks; I certainly won't deny that. That doesn't account for the fact that some white trash idiot would clip me on a weekly basis, arousing my inner screaming banshee. I got so pissed once that I actually kicked a guy's rear view mirror off after he hit me and THEN started mouthing off. I'm a pacifist by nature, but if some idiot hits me because HE is not paying attention and I am obeying all traffic laws, in my mind he has forfeited the right to have me not damage his car in whatever way I feel appropriate. Remember, you hit us and you get a scrape, but we DIE. Who do you think is more pissed here???
