lazy difting in wide lanes...

I like to let my jeep drift, to and from the white line on the left, just barely staying in the lane. It makes everyone pay attention. passengers, cyclists, other motorists, and the fuss.

Got pulled over in my last truck for swerving. (01 chevy 1/2 ton with 39's) I asked the officer if I was crossing the lines and he said no. So I told him good thing the road wasn't cold or then he would really have had something to give me a ticket on. He gave me a headlight ticket and sent me on my way.

This. ⬆

Also if I see someone bent over I have to (open the window in the winter and) make a fart noise. I giggle like a school girl.

Great...more stuff for me to be weird about. I currently have in my repertoire: the 2nd to 1st shifting, seats at the same distance and reclination, jiggling the shifter in neutral, and smashing the imaginary clutch pedal on auto cars. Add to that the fact that I can’t have the volume on an even number and things are getting pretty weird behind the wheel. Thanks a lot for all the other ideas though…I’m sure THAT won’t make people stare at me even more.

I used to own a few sport cars and ride sport bikes and now I always rev match/heel-and-toe while downshifting even the Jeep. I also do the neutral jiggle lol. Always go to 4th before reverse.

My girl drives an auto, so I'm always looking for the clutch when I drive it.

Heel toe in a jeep! Ha. I catch myself doing that after driving my Honda for a while. The body lean reminds me my jeeps a little higher!
Ha neutral jiggle. Ha. That's me too.
When siting at a red light I usually sit in neutral. If I do put it in gear, no matter when, when the light changes I always take it out of gear, jiggle a little to make sure it's in neutral then back to first.

I have a tendency to do that too, haha. Gotta make sure it's in the right gear!
