    Angry This ever happen to you?

    you're riding in traffic or whatever on a road with one lane each way and someone that you don't even know ends up riding beside you in your lane. if you're like me, you're thinking.. wtf?! do i know you? get the fuck out!

    so as my blood pressure rises, the guy drops back a little so he's conveniently positioned in my blind spot then comes back up beside me again. this goes on for a minute or two.. then he just pulls ahead of me and rides in the center of the lane. WTF!? it's one thing if you pull up next to me at a stop.. which i'm not a fan of either, but you're gonna share my lane and then pass me? who the fuck are you? this has happened twice to me.

    yeah, that kinda irritates me... if i pull aside another rider it's only while we're at a dead stop and I make sure to at least acknowledge them w/ a friendly wave or head nod... once we start moving i fall back & make sure i can see them in their own mirror.

    I saw a kid the other day on the highway (shorts, t-shirt, rashed up bodywork, 1/2 of it missing) and i was gonna ride in a spot where he could see me in his mirror.... IT WAS AIMED SO HE COULD SEE HIMISELF.

    I just thought to myself "Well so much for being curteous & staying out of his blind spot"

    yeah, i don't mind if i get some kind of acknowledgement.. but if you pull up in my lane in order to get around me, that's different.

    This ever happen to you?

    Yup. Seems to happen all the time. The Ponch and John move (methinks they've seen too many episodes of CHiPs). Once they make their intention known I usually give them enough room to get along side, give them the head-shake followed by a handful of front brake (when possible). To me that's kinda like some dude you've never met asking for a hug.
    Not interested.

    This ever happen to you?

    That happened to me last week on the way to Lowell Bike night. Some dude on an old Gixxa.

    First the traffic backed way the fook up on 495, so I bailed out into the breakdown lane seeing rt62 exit was only 3/4 of a mile away. The Gixxa dude is in the middle lane. Obviously see me, and follows in suit. I ride into the center of town and eventually he pulls up behind me in traffic. I stayed in the middle of the lane to block him out, but give the little wave thing out. Next light he rolls up next to me to small talk. after the light turns he takes off by me. WTF?? I was keeing the pace down seeing downtown Hudson always has smokies camped out. I figure what ever, let him catch the man instead of me. Just when I think he is out of my worries we come up to a red light were 62 turns left. He stayed in the lane to continue straight, I thought perfect see ya. So I pulled into the left lane never even looked at him this time to nod bye or anything.. Well after the light turns green he proceeds to follow me, so I gun it and hole shot this mofo into the next year. His old gixxa was breathing in V-twin dust! I looked in my mirror to see a small headlight trying to catch up.. F-U jack-ass...
    Next thing you know I catch up to traffic and nice turns are comming up, well I can't get around the cars and dont plan to because the Berlin line was approaching and the 5.0 watch this road a lot! Well I still like diving in the corners, except when some p.o.s. with a dumb fuck in the saddle thinks were on the race track and just about rubbing tires in the corners. So prior to the next corners I slow down to give room between me and the cars, then blast through the corner leaving a nice gap between me and the Shixxer (Shitty-Gixxer) That worked, but then came the gas light..... FUCK. At the next light there was a gas station and it was my only option.. I thought for sure he was going to pull in behind me... But he kept going!!!
    Thank fucking god.... I was ready to run that fucker off the road.

    If he did pull in and chat I would have told him to follow me onto MM and loss him in the nice tight set of twisties coming up..

    that's strange, as many miles I have ever ridden, no one has ever ridden beside me like that, until today

    I was in concord, turning on to 106, and this guy on a GL1500 pulls up beside me at a light and says "nice day to ride", and I acknowleges with an "every day is"

    the light turns green, and the guy is staying right beside me, wtf

    The worst manners I had dealt to me was being passed in my own lane while on Rte 2, the passer was going about 150 and I was going about 80.

    and why is it when anyone makes that small talk they always have to say, "Nice weather!" Or "Good day to be riding!" some people are so dumb they'll say something stupid like, "Is that your bike???" umm no. I stole it.

    I was passed on rt 2 sunday. I didn't like the manner of the T-shirted rider, so I made that clear to him at the next light. Do screeching tires coming from bihind at a high rate of speed scare you when you're stopped at a light looking around? More when they stop a coupld inches from you?

    I would be a hypocrit with all the people mostly cagers I have blown by.

    Also maybe funny biker thought he knew you then discovered he didn't.
