This has happened on more than one occasion where cars have intentionally tried to cut me off or wouldn't let me pass. Just this morning I was pulled in front of, went to pass on the right(I work in the industrial park with super wide roads for the trucks) and he swerved back in front of me and flashed his brakes. I had no intention of being a bad guy, just trying to avoid an accident. Sorry for the rant guys, it's just been bothering me.
I think some guys in cars have a "I'm bigger, so what are you going to do about it?" mentality. Sometimes it seems to be the only explanation. That, or mental illness...
I've had cagers try to get into my lane when there is no room, turn around and look at me and basically just say: "Eff you, I'm bigger than you. You'll move" and force me off the road or to slam the brakes. Hell sometimes they do it when there is literally only two of us on the road. You can't ever expect the people in other cars to drive like a normal person. Because as we all know it doesn't matter who is in the right or wrong on the road. We will always lose.

With all due respect maybe it's our attitude ? calling them cagers ,remember whenever we go somewhere off the motorcycle,in the car , truck [cage]....we are the cager. Maybe because it is illegal to pass on the right without a lane designation ?
I would not pass unless there is a marked lane or I'm feeling sucidal.
I've been able to drastically reduce the number of lane incursions by focusing on making sure I remain in the cager's view. For example, if I'm coming up on a car I stay on the side of my lane closest to the car. Well it is a bit more intense than staying on the away side, it keeps you in their mirror much better and out of their blind spot. They seldom come over if you are where you can be seen.
I should correct myself, my intent was not to pass, just move to the right to avoid braking hard, it was just him and myself on the road as well, with no trees around. I understand where you are all coming from though, and I don't pass on the right, unless it is marked
