No sir, their rear tires were just behind my truck so I knew I wouldn't hit them. This is why I rolled down both of my passenger side windows.

So maybe I should adjust my question. Slow (<75mph) + cruiser + ugly dude = less stupid cr@p?

But I can't fck with ppl in my car...it's little & slow
I do that any time I can for any bike. I dont want them feeling pressured in any way.
And I do have the lil mans syndrome, because I am a fun sized person in a fairly good sized truck.
I do have the "I am bigger than you" thought when those lil fkrs cut me off but those thought of running smack over them I can tame

Nah, I just think you should knock on wood. It seems when I ride within traffic laws I find more ppl trying to harm me.
I propose we...
Make the speed limit for motorcycles 20mph over the regular limit

As for the dualie discussion...

So me (I was in my Crew cab Chevy) being the (who fkn cares) driver toward other ignorant (meaning those who have no regard for other drivers) cages when I am in my cage, throw it into low and hit the exit lane and pass them both, with my blinker on of course. I move over into the hammer lane and floor it. Traffic gets pretty far behind us but by that time we are only running at about 90mph, as we pass New Caney and get into the area of 59 where we have barricades on both sides of the two lane freeway the red one gets on my a$$ while the black one gets right beside me. And you gotta realize this about me people... I have no fear of death and I welcome the thought at times , so what do I do? I rolled down both of my passenger windows to be sure the fkn redneck in the black duallie beside me could see it was a chick who was shooting him the rod. Smiled real purty like and I swerved into the black dualie...he slammed on his brakes and the red one too... I just kept cruising. I pulled off at Splendora waiting at the exit ramp by the Citgo and when they finally passed they were separated by about half a mile. I think some crazy a$$ scared the redneck fkrs.

But when it comes to cage on cage... fk that I don't tolerate when they are as big as me.

Hahaha... yeah it's bad, but I have to admit I'm just like you. I've done the same exact thing with Big-cage bullies on the road (H2s, Duallies, Cargo trucks, etc.) who think they own it. I especially like to capitalize on the feeder hop! It's all about timing, as well as the smile to get them off-guard. Yeah, I know some peeps here don't expect that of me, but it's more of an adrenaline rush than it is about rage. In fact, I don't think I get mad at all, but enjoy the fun. Weird, man.

But yeah, on a bike, it's a whole different story, and just like you, I will block off an idiot rider just the same as I would a rage-cage bearing down on a rider.

I think you once wrote something about freeway traffic, as if it's a game of "dodge-cage". I love the challenge of getting through them... quickly. I have the same mentality.

Dunno why Maybe it has something to do with being born on St. Patty's Day!

Probably failure to yield right of way or some other lame like that. Seems to be the norm for cagers who kill people.

I won't ride the beltway at speed. I normally go 80-90 on my morning commute and only slowly move through traffic. To really boogey through I'd have to be going over 90 mph. That's crazy in and of itself. Can't enjoy the morning ride at 70 unless I want to be a hood ornament

:-) Good, blunt honest answer... I figure a bit freaked out, there are other witnesses and running behind.

Only 'reason' it's kind of an issue.. I've seen a couple, where..if the witness did not 'stay' and give statement to the leo when they arrive, then their 'story' is given less....weight.

you left the scene? you should call up to the station or whatever and tell them you witnessed a accident earlier, one more witness will not hurt anything in that case

There are websites like publicdata.com you can run the plate and get their address. 29$ a year for 1000 searches or something cheap.
