2008 Night Train

being cut off while stressed......

so we had a thread last week about being cutt off and wouldn't you know it i was cut off yet again not a big deal right almost an everyother day occurance right......well today was bad to the point that i am dissapointed in the way i handled it. see i lost a family member this weekend and i have been totally stressed about it. i was on my way to work and i saw the lady in front of me was in a hurry weaving in and out speeding up slowing switching lanes etc. i even knew she was gonna cut me off and when she did i shot over to the turning lane and got along said her and yelled at her. and of course no acknowledgement so i dropped back and steamed for a minute and lost my cool....what i did next was dumb i split the lane and went between her and another car (im sure i scared the out of them) and cut her off...i just lost it i know it was dumb but wtf whats the big hurry all the time? if your late your late get over it!!

You should really think about caging it for a while till your head clears... Riding bike with lots on your mind is hazardous to your health.

Remember, car vs. bike....

bike loses almost, if not, every time.

Hey cheif, I know what its like to lose your cool when another jak - off cuts you off. Its time to take a deep breath and think about pulling over and cooling off...Better than ending up as someones hood ornament..

BTW Sorry for your loss ....

"I get a total charge out of inspiring others to follow their dreams and not to fear change. Embrace it. Realize that money isn't the end-all, be-all. What is important, what really has value, is Time. As motorcyclists, we all face increased risks on the road, and on the track. Do something with your time; don't have a bag full of regrets when the train comes to a stop. "

leave the bike at home next time before you get yourself killed. sorry about your loss though.
