Nice edit to ur post.....u keep doing what ur doing...I hope u dont learn the hard way....
That's what I'm saying. I was driving my car. I don't care whose fault it is considered. If you can't use your mirrors to locate then you probably don't need them. I edited my post to dumb it down so you could understand me but alas I've failed. Science fails to account for intelligence and visual recognition. Post all of the pictures you like but I couldn't give a . I'll never learn the hard way because I'll never cut a rider with my car. I would feel sorry for you for misinterpreting my comment but you aren't worth my pity. I'm saving my pity for Mexico after the USA beats them tonight.

I was towing a box trailer coming back from a long weekend in Northern Arkansas. Checked mirrors, turned on signal and made a normal lane change to the right.
Around the trailer comes a guy on a 'busa, haulin' .
I almost cut him off, nearly squeezed him onto the shoulder.

Why?

Because he was hauling , I was at ~70, he must have been well above 100. He thought it was my fault too, but he was wrong.
I checked, couldn't see him. I signaled, apparently he was committed. I made a lane change and he almost couldn't stop.
He was several bike lengths ahead of me by the time he got slowed down, which he did so he could flip me off. He rode beside us gesturing for a mile or so then shook his head like I was an idiot and took off like a rocket again.

When you are over taking a car by double their speed, they are gonna have little means to judge your speed. They see a speck in the rear view and reasonably assume you are going at a sane velocity. They act according and suddenly the little speck is a screaming guy choking the out of his brake lever.
You better be prepared to accept the consequences if you ride like that. Aint sayin' I never have or never will again, just gotta assume that you are invisible when you do.

So he gets cut off driving like a total hat? Luckily he didn't kill himself or hurt anyone else.

Those look like Euro plates..

If this were on the Autobahn, then the car made an error in judgement just as much as the bike. There are different rules on a road with no legal speed limit, just like there are different rules on the track (not a 1-1 comparison, but still).

A bike passing at 180 mph is fair play on the Autobahn, as long as it's done safely..

180mph is fair as long as you don't get in a wreck. If you're going over 80mph on the Autobahn and get in an accident you get a ticket regardless of who is at fault. Very little of the Autobahn is fair game for WFO riding/driving, and even in those sections max speed is determined by your tire rating. You have to have a placard of sorts (color-coded) that shows the max speed you can drive per the speed rating of your tires.

I love how a lot of riders assume because they are on a bike, they have the right of way, right of speed, and right to do whatever they want, when they want, and how they want. And no matter what... the cagers are always at fault.

Reality checks will get you killed with that kind of attitude!

Agreed.

No point in arguing about these kinds of things. It's like a religion of its own; some follow the law, others think they have special privileges on the road and expect others to take notice of them.
