Freeway trouble

Anyone ever had someone in a sports car try to get you to race them on the highway...i know im not the only one. Yesterday a corvette got next to me and reved his engine. I tried to ignore him. He then got behind me and started tail gaiting me. Some guy with a couple of girls in the car, guess he wanted to show off. He kept following me and reving his car, i tried my best to ignore him. I ended up doing the dumbest thing. I popped it into sixth and burned him. He was a ahole and i was not 2 bright for doing what i did. Though it did feel good.

Did you place yourself in a better situation by getting away from the guy?

I would have slowed down to 5-10 mph below the speed limit. He would have LEFT YOU alone then I'm sure.

Probably best that you got away from him.

Just remember that most morons will only speed up to try and 'catch' you. Only by that time he'll be going way faster than he can probably handle. That's when I let them go by.

+1, I don't have time for idiots or the patience to wait around and see if they are going to kill me or not.

... but to the topic, yeah, I guess it already happened to anyone. Being a girl on a bike doesn't make it easier. I usually just sit back, relax, and try to ignore them until they get tired of it themselves and leave me alone.

Now, the problem I see here is that he clearly started endangering you by tailgaiting. I haven't had that happen to me yet and that is not only dumb but also dangerous. What if there was something on the road where you had to hit your brakes or whatnot? I guess taking off is the best thing to do at that point but I probably would've tried to take the next exit or move over and let him blow by me ... and then hopefully get a ticket. :laughing6
