Saco – Motorcyclist Chris Thompson was so discouraged after thinking about what might happen if he passed a homeowner spraying grass clippings into the road, he couldn’t wait to get home so he could let everyone know his displeasure.

Thinking of the perfect meme to express his displeasure, Thompson sped through traffic, cut between cars, and rode the center lane, until he arrived home to make a point about motorcycle safety.
The meme showed a road covered with lawn clippings, with the caption “Keep your grass off my roads and I’ll keep my bike off your lawn.”
Thompson, whose rate of death increases 16 times for every mile traveled over a person in an automobile, knew he needed to get home sooner rather than later to express his safety concerns.
“If I don’t let people know I ride a motorcycle at least once a day, they might forget.”
On his way through a residential neighborhood, Thompson was sure to observe the speed limit, only going five mph over, while also revving his engine loudly for no reason whatsoever.
Before finally arriving home, he also made sure to ride between two cars, screaming at one of the drivers to “share the road.”
“Some of these people don’t even see us when we pass them in the breakdown lane on the right,” he complained.
