from what you described,
I would have either lane split, to avoid her
or pulled aside, let her by, to avoid her.


IMO
driving slower than the flow of traffic on a motorcycle (any vehicle) is very dangerous, it causes problems and creates a dangerous situation on the road,
of course it will also cause countless episodes of rage from drivers trying to get around

if you drive "slow and "careful" stay in the right lane, pleeeeease.

I agree that driving drastically slower than the flow of traffic is very dangerous indeed. In this case I was only going a few miles an hour slower than the flow of traffic to create a little distance between me and the car in front of me. I put about three or four car lengths, that was it. I was also continually looking for a time when I could get over so she could pass. Unfortunately all I could see in my mirror was her grill.

Everyone that says they would have chased her down, and done this or that. When you are riding a motorcycle you are the weakest thing on the road. I don't care how bad of a you are, a 16 year old girl, or a 95 year old grandma can whoop your just by turning their steering wheel or hitting the gas pedal.

Putting your ego aside is tough, however it can save your life. My goal is always to come back home safe from riding my bike, not just for me, but for everyone that I am close to.

I do the responsible thing and just keep it slow to make more distance between me and the car in front of me until the traffic thins out some so I can loser her. She starts to honk at me and get even closer to my tire (I did not think it was possible but she found a way.) She then decides to lane split in her SUV pushing me almost into a bridge railing. All of her evasive maneuvering put her so far ahead of me that we end up next to each other at the next stop light. She rolls down her window and starts to yell at me, I yelled back telling her to learn to drive (childish I know). She then spits in my direction, luckily very little if any landed on me.

I got super for obvious reasons, but I decided to not try to retaliate in anyway. Instead I pulled over into the carwash and cooled down before heading back home to get something to eat.

I am not really mad anymore, my only hope is that she realizes that she behaved like a animal and does not act that way towards anyone else. I doubt that will happen, but I can always hope.
I feel your pain man. I'm glad it didn't end up worse than what it could have. What if you were one of those guys easy to upset that carries a pistol which is what a lot of guy I ride with do now. People just don't know what's going on in other people's minds these days. We escape everyday BS by getting on our bikes but lately, its just as stressful riding through Houston traffic as it is working an 8 hour shift at work. Anyway, be safe bro.

Agreed about the stress factor. And to be honest, the two things that keeps me from doing something stupid is if I argue with them, I can win but if they argue with their car, I'll loose. Second is I'm one of those that carry so anything that I do becomes major problems. And everyone who has a chl knows that if someone would get a slap on the wrist, they'd try to throw the book at you even if you're not carrying at that moment. As if the card makes you more than just human.

Good thing about these threads is that we can vent it out with all the could have and would have . I had a guy flat out almost run me over and he didn't give a about it. I so wanted to take his mirror off. Had there been a better escape route, I probably would have, but in the end I didn't. Although I'm quick to say I would. Fortunately for me the more I vent and say I would or should of, I wouldn't. It's the ones that don't say they will or even worse the ones that start off noisy and then get quiet.... So guess I'll just keep venting for now. And if I ever shut up, someone smack me in the back of the head, call my name and make a joke of the situation. haha.

That person thinks they ruined my day, little do they know they actually made it better.
That's a very Taoist thing to say and I appreciate that very much! It's good to let things like this roll off your shoulder which I like to do as well. I like to vent with precision knife throwing, axe throwing, archery, or tameshigiri and I don't mean to do that at the time of insult. Good of you to cool down and take in the whole of the situation!

This door swings both ways though, I saw a guy on the same model as MY bike (while I was riding my bike) cruise the shoulder during full rush hour traffic on 290 at the beltway he waved to me and just went off-road! I was like WHAH?! That will cause rage in drivers as well, cagers will be about whatever suites their mood regardless, this is a good thread because it is bringing out the many things that other riders have experienced and road rage has no biased standard. I once saw a guy in a truck who saw a guy on a bike lane split and make the corner before he even had a green light and he was still off enough to be a and try to chase the guy on the bike down (hopefully with no luck). The best you can do is be a gentleman (or lady) wave and acknowledge their courtesy and let people feel comfortable around you. I still go faster than them but I'm courteous about it!

Luckily I have only experienced a Cage Rager once. It's like they have this extreme hatred for anyone that rides.

It's f*cking retarded.

And then people wonder why people who ride, ride like .


I was thinking about that one day as I was riding to work. I use to ride fairly defensively, but I think in time I might ride like an sometimes because people in cages have made me that way.


Luckily I am in south Florida where everyone drives like anyways.

I had a beer bottle thrown at me from a Dodge dually going the opposite direction on a two lane road. I was travelling at 70mph+, the dually probably about the same.

It knocked me hard in my right shoulder. The pain was immense. I was very . Another rider behind me saids it was a can, I say bottle. It was open but full of beer.

left a nice blue-black mark for a couple weeks.

Just goes to show, you can't fix stupid. Makes me think more and more that some people should not be allowed to breed, and this is a fine example.
