Wazoo Posted November 21, 2006 Share Posted November 21, 2006 Newsflash seen on TV .. Bush is in Hawaii .. the news bit (just a mention thus far) was that a Honolulu Police motorcycle escort/brigade on their way to Andrews Air Force Base had a serious accident .... statement was that seven bikes were laying in the grass ..... Flashback to the ealy 80's ... my (ex)wife and I on a bit of a cruise (noting that Oahu was a bit small after 4 years <g>) ... a Honolulu motorcycle cop came up behind us on a stretch of highway ... he pulled up next to my (ex)wife, who then slowed down to let him go by ... this 'confused' him ... he slowed down, she slowed down even more .... he finally gave up trying to ride 'next' to her, so he sped up to come along side me .... I pulled over to the center line, motioned him to go on .. he kept the position next to me, so I slowed down to let him go on ahead .... he finally got a clue ... However, he was waiting at the first stop-light available and waved us both over .... he proceeded to start telling us both that it was legal, advisable, smarter to ride side-by-side in Hawaii. He didn't take kindly to me telling him he was full of sh*%, explaining how stupid one would have to be to give up all that possibly-needed manuevering space, especially when you had some idiot coming along and stealing even more road-space from you .... things went from bad to worse, but eventually, we wished him a nice day and left him standing there yelling <g> Can't help but wonder if this particular idiot was involved in this reported accident ....
