It was a Saturn. Thanks. we have to keep up our street cred as biker thugs.
Be sure to do some burn outs and wheelie out of there.
Beware. If you kick a Saturn, it will start on fire!

I try not to get worked up over people like that. Happens all the time, just have to learn to expect people to drive like zombies all the time

Give up riding the bike for a year.
Log every time someone does something stoopit to you when you're in your own cage.
Go back to the bike for a year and log every time people do something stoopit to you.

I switch off pretty often and although I never logged anything myself I seem to get off more in my car.

I will disagree with you on the car vs motorcycle thing and give no reason. I am not in the mood.

I do have a very slow truck and try to drive at a relaxed pace. I have learned you will get there when you get there. No need to cut people off to have them pass you right back doing the speed limit while you are speeding.

Was this your first day to ride on a public street?

This type of driving is the norm. Drive defensively. Anticipate behavior. Stay out blind spots. Ride faster than traffic.

I rode in today. Was doing 78 in a 65. Saw a grey sedan coming up behind me fast, so I pulled over a lane to let him buy. He started coming into my lane and cut me off, no signal and he was on the cell - so I had to move to the far side of my lane or he would have clipped me - he just kept going right across all 3 lanes and then took off like a bat outta 773H.
It was an unmarked trooper. No lights, no sirens, - - ??

Life in Houston. It is what it is.

Wait for racer x to chime in. You were prob riding wheelies some where before he could catch up to you.

Always on the on ramp. It's rare that there's any traffic at 6:40am. I figure my front tire will last longer if I don't use it so much. I'm trying to ride economically. Save money on tires.

That is great, but you should alternate front and back wheels.
