Just to give you a heads up. When you ride in the right lane, stay to the left side of that lane, and ride with your high beams on. If you are in the fast lane, ride in the right side of that lane with high beams on.
In your video you were mad at the cager, but you were the one in the blind spot. Dee De Dee...

Ya I guess it has to do with marketing. I own a window cleaning business, so I have no idea how a video of any kind would help me.

Sorry about the facts being fast. I didn't edit the video. I just put the camera on my head and drove.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Or kicked their door in and taken off the side mirror after breaking the passenger side window.

I've neve used the horn in my life, I focus on the throttle then maybe the brake when shiz gets dicey. Good info on lane position for a worthless noob like me though, I do what he did and stay far the f away from cars as possible. Guess I need to correct that.

I'm currently enrolled in his class. He relates this youtube video to entrepreneurship because this video is your "product" and you get graded on the amount of views

you need to make an appension to your video and teach drivers how to adjust their mirrors properly. i'd say 8/10 drivers mirrors are NOT adjusted to see their blindspots, rather the mirrors let them see the cars behind them not to their blind "side"

using this link as a reference, go out and make a quick video in your car and add it to your video, many motorists again do NOT have their mirrors adjusted.

Just intimidate other drivers into submission.

If that doesn't work, do the Philly Fake-Out.
I like this one.

Use your turn signal and make an exaggerated movement like you're about to move to the next lane, if the car in front doesn't move, You're good to go.
If they block you, your lane is now clear and you can pass them a car length ahead.

Street riding is all about telepathy.

Bahaha.


An example of an exaggerated movement would be this:

Say, you're moving one lane to the left.
Slowly swerve to the right side with your left indicator on as you're approaching the vehicle ahead.
Then slightly lean over to the left very slowly.
Wait a few seconds holding this lean.
Check mirror.
Check shoulder.
Snap the bike over to the lane.

Slightly off topic, but I think this works.
Has never not worked for me.

Really?

I love the horn.

I dunno why, but a particular friend of mine and I got into the habit of honking whenever we heard another person honk.

While waiting at an intersection we honked in echo of some car and then we heard a third car honk. So we honked back at them too. After a few more honks between another car, I swear the entire intersection was just blaring their horns until the light turned green in different patterns. Looking around a lot of people were laughing from their cars, it was a nice break from the daily same ol' I guess.

Sh*t was hilarious
