What is you're opinion on motorcyclists you see out on the public roads?; seen through the perspective of a..
motorist, pedestrian, bicyclist, or motorcyclist.

Motorcyclist ah... the true meaning of a free soul that does what they want to do, cagers will never understand why riders are more productive and more successful in life but bikers know that just like what commuting through a busy city is like is the exact same in every aspect of they're lives... its hard to explain but its only something you learn while riding

i am actually a Stunter/Motorcyclist and not gonna lie i'm that squid idiot doing wheelies and endos in a pack of 70+ bikers i been riding since 16, riding in a group at 18 stunting at 20 and been doing 2-3 mile stand ups since 21 now i'm 23 so in almost 2-3 years i been a hazard on the road but 1 rule we do have in the group DO NOT stunt where there are cagers (people in cars) other than that we do the same stupid route and i've gotten 8 tickets for it and taken my bike away twice lol

but as much as i do this stupid stuff on my Gsxr, i also own a cruiser bike a old little virago, i rather commute on my slow grandpa's scooter then be on the look out for cops at all times

When I see them from my car, I can't help but feel envious.

Still a squid.
Like they say, it's like a car without the safety features.

It depends. If a motorcyclist is driving responsibly (i.e., NOT a speed demon, wearing protective gear, generally not doing stupid things) I think, "Oh, motorcyclist" and feel pretty neutral towards them. If I see one speeding like a bat out of hell I think, "WHOA! Death Wish, much?! " Personally, I could never drive, let alone ride one. As my Dad says, "You get one mistake, and that's it." In other words, you crash, you die (or get seriously injured). In a car, there's a LOT more protection so if you do get in a crash, assuming you're wearing your seat belt and weren't doing stupid things like driving drunk or speeding, you'll probably live. Basically, follow the road rules and I don't mind motorcyclists. Mostly.

I only really notice them when they do something stupid like splitting cars or weaving through traffic. Then I usually make a snide remark about how they'll probably deserve it when they kill themselves and I hope they don't injury anybody else in the process.

Love 'em or hate 'em? How about "Don't care"? I hate it when they're silent as shit and then just rev out of nowhere, though. Shits me up. And even though I always thought it looked cool to ride one of those, i've never seen someone look cool while doing it IRL. So it was obviously just in movies. It's the same with smoking, really. Nobody looks cool IRL when they smoke.

Your dad's wrong. I've hit the pavement 4 times, been hit by a car and broken bones and I still ride like a DEMON !!! And had more wrecks in cars.than bikes, they're way less maneuverable. I do wear a helmet tho. BTW you're more likely to die slipping in your bathtub, so SPEED ON !!!

Up until now I had no opinion of them, but after reading this, I have come to the conclusion that they are pricks.

Not all of us are pricks. I also ride and generally obey the laws. It's a way different experience from being in a car. It's as if you are on the road alone and you have the ability to keep up with traffic.

Yo guys just as a heads up! Flaming and trolling aren't going to be tolerated on the forums. I love to see users posting and having fun with the site but when it comes at the expense of other users it is absolutely not acceptable. Respect your fellow posters and they shall respect you!

He isn't a prick he is just maybe a bit over the top about his chosen mode of transport.

Personally I don't think anything of motorcyclists beyond the same thing I think of everyone else on the road, a potential accident waiting to happen that I have to watch for in the event that bad things go down. Unless they are driving faster than everyone else, bobbing in and out of traffic, and not wearing the proper protective gear, then I think green mile we got a dead man walking here.

If you are going to ride a motorcycle you have to be even more mindful of safety than everyone else, even one simple mistake can and will get you killed or permanently injured.

As a motorcyclist (well, a scooterist) I think that in most cases, motorcyclists are typically the more responsible driver, as we're pretty vulnerable on the road, compared to someone in a car.
