Yea I figured that was much true.. after the fact that it happened I didn't let it shake me up too much more just because I figured it must come with the territory.

alway remember this rule of thumb never go for a ride when you are off. never get off when you are riding. never let a ride you off. totally ruins this this expensive hobby and can be dangerous and stupid sometimes.

Not sure how old you are, but kicking doors does not show maturity.
Going through life, you will find out that you will not always get your way, and that yes, there are some arseholes out there who are careless and plain retarded.
Just got to learn to live with all that, and let it be. No sense getting in trouble over someone cutting you off.
I guess dumb people are all the more reason for us bikers to be more vigilant and pro actively assess situations, rather than react to them.
Some are right, kicking doors is not going to help the biker community. Now the person has a story she will share with dozens of non-bikers, who will get yet another negative opinion of us.

Please help us get rid of this image, and try to keep it cool. I dealt with it by staying off the street. Now only ride the track, and do not have to worry about kicking people's door, etc.
Now, if dhdrider comes up at the track and gets ready to pass me, that may be a reason for a gentle boot ... (trying to be Hopkins and pretending you are Checa at Laguna last year, I guess). J/K dhd.



I know many cagers are brainless when it comes to driving with bikers, but try to just let it go...no need for vandalism...could only get you into more trouble. Ride Safe, ride Smart

That's probably the best reason not to kick someone's door. If you are close enough to kick them, they are close enough to knock you off the bike with a quick turn of the wrist intentional or not. You don't have to be a genius to know who's gonna win if the car clips your bike.

When you're riding down the street, it's a good idea to always assume that a car is going to do something that will endanger you. If you see a car waiting to pull out, start planning what you will do when they pull out and wait for a sign that they are starting to move.

It's better to be surprised that a car didn't pull out and be prepared for it, then the other way around. Same thing with people sitting in a position to make a left across your lane of traffic. Assume that those people don't see you, plan your escape route and be anticipate what bad drivers are going to do.

I'm not saying that you can prevent every accident from happening, but you need to be aware of your surroundings and minimize the chances that cagers have to cause you harm.

nah! i agree with mikey. i think cagers need to learn to look twice. i bet they'll look twice next time. most cagers will just brush off the birdie, and go on with life, and then when they do hit someone, you'll all be on here flaming the cagers. some people just need drastic measures to learn a hard lesson.

My only bad experience with a biker was one who ran a red light. We were second at a light, it turned green and first car made right turn, then this guy on a big cruiser speeds past as we're turning and flicks us off... I am sure his bike was big enough and going fast enough to have seriously injured my girlfriend who was driving and, much like your door kick, I felt like catching up and door-checking the son of a , but that would have only ended badly. Knowing that, on my motorcycle, I just try to make sure I don't make any other driver's get that upset with me. If that involves going a little slower or an extra stop or two, no biggie.

I am surprised no one recommended kicking a mirror off... I thought that was the standard response?

Yea I have taken the msf course, msf course can't teach you esp though... the car did not even try to stay in the suicide lane.. it went straight across the suicide lane and then both lanes on the road... Simply a carless driver not paying attention.. even if I was a car instead of a bike she would have cut me off.. but like I said sence im on a bike its like an attempt on my life..
