I think you should have made him get out of the vehicle, take his shoes and socks off, handed him a couple toothpicks to place under his toenails, and made him kick his tires a few times at gun point. Then beat him in the face with your lid. Blast a clip into his hands. Set his car on fire. Back your bike over his crotch and do a burnout.

Or realistically, the next time that happens it may be a good idea to just shake your head and roll out dude, ppl get shot every day for less man.

You're right. Motorcycles lose when they try to "get aggresive" with car/truck drivers. Just accept it, be glad you were on top of your game and avoided the accident, keep going.

There's some old phrase floating around, something like "Love thy enemy - it really them off".

OK so this isn't the most hardcore, badass sounding response but it has a fairly solid track record: Let 'em be. Move out of their way. Wave them past. Give them a relaxed outstretched palm & fingers. They don't know if you're saying "I see you" or "I'm sorry for whatever I did" or for some reason trying to communicate the number 5.

If they're reasonably intelligent then they know they're in the wrong. They're more likely to calm down and say "Gee I just nearly ran over that guy, guess I better pay more attention" if you leave them in control to do so. Middle fingers, shaking fists and obscenities cause defensive anger to supercede logic or responsibility.

If they are an idiot - and there's tons of idiots out there - they're too stupid to learn. They are hard-pressed to learn the complexities of a common calculator and you'll never "teach them a lesson" of any kind. Confront them and they simply respond like how creatures lower on the brain chain do: they hate bikes and will continue to endanger you and your fellow riders.

====================

Here's some solid advice for freeway riding: watch the other drivers. Look at their HEAD and HANDS. There are some aggressive people out there, and they tend to give their intentions away if you know what to look for. Look to see if they're checking the mirrors, esp the driver's "side" one. If they start checking more often when you get close, they probably see you. If they move from one side of the lane to the other in sync with you (I switch constantly, partly for this reason) they probably see you, albeit subconsciously. Just because they see you doesn't mean you're safe.

People will switch their hand positions on the wheel before changing lanes/positions. And yes, there are folks who will swerve at you to try and take you out. Never ever ever ride beside suspicious people, give 'em space, don't ride like a douche.




[bonus rant]

Some people don't know a sportbike from a cruiser. The don't know a Harley-logo jacket from Icon or A*, or a bandana from a helmet. All they know is the term "Hells Angel" and if you ride you're one of 'em. They believe that you're evil and the sooner you die the better. Anyone who takes you out is a hero and should have a medal. Worse, they have driver's licences. Beware! Jus' sayin'.
