    Has anyone been harassed while on their bike, etc? I have been chased by an insane homeless man giving a speech to a set of poles in a parking lot after I drove past him, chased by people in a car with a bb gun, etc... Had people call names once but I rode really fast at them while they were at the stop sign and they freaked out and drove away

    Haven't had that misfortune, I did get honked at by a cabbie in Reno yesterday, but I think he was just letting me know he was there and comin by me. I'm pretty lucky to have avoided this kind of behavior I guess, at least up until now.

    Homeless folks mainly in the Santa Clarita area of Ca, asking for beer money, I gave'em a fin as it was for a good cause. Another time a car of youths yelled and screamed GO LANCE!, that was funny, but the can tossed out the window narrowly missing me was not as funny.

    please tell me you got the car info and plate, and then called the cops on them.

    that's straight up illegal, I believe. and if not outright, it is because it's harrassment and possibly assault, so you could've gotten them in serious trouble.
