The guy was obviously endangering your life, which at that point I would have done something I regretted, similar to how you regretted speeding off. I take it VERY personally when someone does something like that, something that could KILL me. Stupid idiot drivers don't have a ******* clue as to how much damage they could cause to a rider! Something as simple as not staying in their lane, changing multiple lanes, not signaling, trying to 'push' in, all could end up leaving a ride home in a casket. I am the guy that you see driving near you, blocking other cars from killing you as you are riding. I'm like your personal force-field. :angry1: I'm one of the people that thinks that it should be mandatory for everyone applying for a drivers license should have to drive an 18-wheeler, and a motorcycle so they understand that on a bike if you sneeze wrong, you could literally die, and that an 18-wheeler's brakes are about as good as ones on a boat.

Definitley don't wait for them to do more stupid sh*t. Go faster and get out of the way. Speed wise you could take on almost any car. But if a car hits you, you probably won't fair too well.

Yea, I get so sick of this! Most of the time I just ignore them, but some of the actually get and that just makes it worse! Oh, well that is another reason I rarely ride the streets anymore!

Had a yellow cobra mustang do that to me once, like 5 years ago (when I didn't know any better) dropped down to 5th and got up to 125/130. That mustang got left like it was standing still. Went about quarter mile then slowed down, when he caught up to me he didn't even look my way. He just kept going down i-10 at the speed limit. I Just shook my head and laughed. Now I know better,its hillarious when little civics do that to me know. I shake my head and laugh. I make a pose like I'm gonna take off and then just keep going at speed. (My daily driver is a civic, so I'm not hating on civics). But now that I have more experience and know what my baby can and can't do, I just chill, and let fools be fools.:laughing6

Yup. I think every rider has had some kind of Car do this to us. Back in the squid days my favorite thing to do was smoke a expensive Carrera, 350 Z or some pimped out Ricer. Them hoes can keep up but weren’t a match for the R6 in the turns. Now that I look back it was incredibly stupid and not worth the adrenaline rush.

Now a days I laugh or flirt with the girls in the car when they do stuff like that. and if they start to get aggressive I find the quickest safety zone.9/10 times if you slow down they will get bored and just leave you alone. If you speed up you run the risk 10/10 times of the catching up to you and buzzing you at unsafe speeds. Then they turn on their blinkers thinking they beat you after they caught up to you 5 minutes later.

I had a chick in a Rx8 slap me in the once on 45 south. I was like WTF where did you come from.

Yep, I won't let any car ride next to me or right behind me. You can pull up to me, I'll give you about 2-3 seconds, then I'll back off or roll on. A C6 on I-10 tried to mess with me a similar way.... funny how the ego gets people.

Coming back from a SMR when I had my K6 750 on 45 and 610 had a 06 M5 mess with me and spanked him. Then about 10 minutes later on 610 had a 07 Z06 vette do the same and (this is stupid since there was alot a traffic) messed with him and almost got burned then thought to myself Oyeah lane splitting! and burned the fugger...lol


Man that was dumb but fun none theless.
