Motorcyclists who wear no helmet while riding on main roads. Even worst are the idiots that ride with no helmet and wear only a short sleeved shirt.

I don't know why it bothers me so much... I just want to yell at each of them how retarded they are.

WGMG: Motorcyclists who fail to properly incorporate the speedometer into their scan and/or frequently check their speed. I cannot stand being stuck behind someone on a bike who will go 65 in a 55, and then a minute later, go 45 in a 55 because they don't realize they've slowed down.

No, he's saying that he dislikes that they DO speed for a bit, but then go way too slow moments later. The biker needs to pick a speed and stick to it.

Sounds like you're not driving it hard enough. Higher revs! HIGHER REVS!

Not being able to find a comfortable temperature in my car with the AC.

I'm glad you made that joke because I almost did, but didn't want to be labelled as "Sexist Swine". I'd rather be "Justice Beaver". haha

And don't I know it!? It's only when I'm stubborn about rolling my window down to allow "natural" air in.

HA! The main thing with my rex was that annoying 3rd gear synchro whine, but this definately pulls harder
The slow speed rear-end 'clunking' is still escaping my ability to locate it though, it's not the sway, shocks, or exhaust. But, I love my $18k annoying noise maker

Not sure what kind of clunk you're having based on that description. You'll get clunks from the rear differential or driveshaft due to a few reasons. Typical for its oem design as you're aware of.

New urethane bushings for the differential mounts as well as the driveshaft will help take a lot of that clunk out without creating new in cabin noise. You can get those for around $100-200 depending on brand.

Kartboy makes bushings to alleviate some noises, at the same time creating new ones. I recommend going in and changing as many bushings you can depending how old the vehicle is.

It's weird. Been reading and searching, but nothing I've found is definitive. Test includes, if the trunk is shut and any of the doors get shut, it produces the same clunk. If the trunk is open, then it doesn't. Checked the sway bushings, good. Checked the suspension, good. Granted, I have no trunk interior at all (yay used cars...) or the rear seat/trunk partition, but still...

Not really, it's pretty consistent sounding, almost like it would be tied in with the diff/axles, but it's only really on horrible tarmac (ie: ft richardson :P)

I really hate that as well. Or someone leaves only a very small amount of milk. So you pour it, realize there was hardly anything and ruined your bowl of deliciousness in the process.

Driving with my parents after their anniversary lunch at Sushi and Sushi, I was driving through between Walmart and Johnsons Tire service from Denali St. A black dodge tried passing me in the 2 way while my parents were with me. I was sure to make his pass unsuccessful.
