Rob didn't even have time to work on my car, lol. He should have been doing homework, but he was worried that my car might stall during an inopportune moment.
to my loving boyfriend, lol.

In vid #2 you slow to a roll through the stop sign (called a California stop down here), as a motorcyclist I have to ask you to please not do that, please make a complete stop behind the limit line before continuing on.
Very unnerving to be riding down the street and see a car roll passed the limit line out into the traffic lane right in front of you.
The frist thing people say when in an accident with a bike is "I didn't even see the motorcycle".
And everybody please remember always use your turn signals!
Ok I'm done bithcing...
Great vids, nice ride!

Only one thing worse than running a red light or stop sign. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2469140

Take a chill pill, child. I understand your concern, but damn dude.
Now, you can't tell from the video, but from my vantage point, you can see clearly down all three roads (the road in front of me, to my left, and to my right) by at least a block in each direction. You'll notice that when it got to a point where I couldn't see far enough ahead of me that I slowed down. The neighborhood is also predominantly old people, which narrows down the chance of someone having a motorcycle, let alone driving one.
Anyway, what the hell am I doing explaining myself to you? lol. /defense

Whether or not the driver stops completely has little to do with whether or not they will see a motorcyclist. You could come to the most perfect and complete stop, look both ways, and still hit a motorcycle. As drivers of cars, we are not accustomed to seeing motorcycles, they are the wrong size and shape and they don't have enough lights in the right configuration. Fact of life. As a motorcyclist you just have to be extra defensive when you ride. You can't equate a rolling stop to a DUI, when a DUI is so much more dangerous.

WAY TO GO!
Sometimes the extra pain & waiting makes it just that much better when it is finished. At least that is what I keep telling myself.

Yeah, no kidding. You've got yourself in a pretty deep project... how long do you think it'll take for it to be finished? Will you show/race it at WW?

You reenforced the point about not seeing motorcycles. Which is more of a reason than anything for coming to a complete stop, because the motorcycle you don't see (as well as the old fogies with poor vison coupled w/slow reflexes) is expecting you to not only obey the traffic laws but use your privilege to drive in courteous manner.
There's no comparison to drunk driving as I stated, drunk driving is worse. Neither is excusable.
Anyone want to go on about crossing the double yellow? Its third on the list of retarded driving behaviors.
New thread maybe?

Your right you don't have to explain anything, the video clearly shows the car not stopping at the stop sign.
If anything with what you described as the predominant age group in your hood (over 60-70+?). It would be in your favor to stop. Or get t-boned by some blue-hair with glasses thicker than the bottom of a coke bottle that are out of prescription anyway and all hopped up on blood pressure medicine in a car that weighs 3x as much as your sweet little Rocco.
As far as putting yourself on the defensive you'd have been better off saying something along the lines of "hey we where filming I got a little carried away, I'm not an jackass, I always stop. Sheesh take a chill pill".
<-place pill here...
