Default Yet Another "God Damned Cagers!!!" Thread

On a rotary in here in MA. I am in the roatary, traffic coming into the rotary is supposed to yield. I have the right of way. I pride myself in being a super alert rider. I have been on the road my entire life. I saw hiom before he saw me. I knew it. 65-75 yrs. of age, never even bothered to look. And I KNOW he heard my pipes, he didn't give a fuck. I'm at lean, hence any input on the brakes could be disastrous. I roll off the throttle and he slides ahead of me, by about 4 inches. I am fuming. I accelerate and motor up to the inside of him. He never even glances at me. Fuck me he must be thinking. He's in a cage, I'm on a bike. He wins. 10 years ago I would have followed him and would have dragged that shit out of his car. Today, I rode away feeling disrespected and ready to kill. Anywho, keep your head on a swivel brothers. Everyone out their is trying to kill you...

To your last sentence I'll add--And keep a cool head. If you get mad, you'll be the only only one who is mad. Yeah, they are oblivious, ignorant, self absorbed, distracted, irritable, and whole bunch of other things that prevents them from being safe and attentive. We know that going in, so be prepared--that's called risk management. One more thing--I'm surprised when a cager does the proper and/or courteous thing.

Nothing personal RL but there's a lot of Road Rage going on lately.....
Pulling next to a car yell at the driver that just cut you off or ready to pull your gun because someone passed you on the shoulder(as I read in another thread) craziness, someone is going to end up dead or in jail..... You all better calm it down, pass and move on or back off and turn away.
I've never run into anyone trying to purposely harm me(that I know of) on the road. But just about every time I'm out I run into miscalculation, stupid, distracted, impatient, inexperienced or some combination of the five. You can't fix that with all the chest-banging, fist-waving and mirror-kicking in the world.

Well said Pain. I lose my shit out there sometimes but it never solves anything.

guess i am the one you are referring to.

yes i was pretty irate that day....and i feel i had a darn good reason. its not the 1st time i have made reference to ...ignorant ass memphis drivers on this forum.

most of the close calls i have had i felt were attributed to carelesness or lack of attention of the other driver. most always i just shook my head and went on .

in the tread you made reference to ...yea i was pretty pissed. i feel i had good reason to be. this woman " deliberately" broke the law and "deliberately" put my life in danger. quite a bit different than some one saying ...oops ..i did not see you.

i usually ride my bike to the pool hall 2-3 times a week. i have had 3 close encounters where some one pulled out this same apartment complex every time. in every case it seemed to me it was an ...oops i did not see you. the last time this woman freaked out when she did see me at the last minute and slammed on her brakes. i slammed on my brakes and slid sideways up to her door. it was so close i could touch her door handle sitting on the bike.

i take a longer route home now just to avoid that complex.

so its not like i am filled with rage every time when shit happens but when some one deliberately puts your life in danger its to be expected to be pissed off....at least for me any way.

Yeah, I was out for a ride a couple days ago and came up behind a gold Camry. I swore the driver must be drunk because of the weaving back and forth and even running off the road several times. I back off and give this car room as I just know they are about to wreck.

Finally I get a good stretch where I can get a good running start and blow by them. Just as I'm going by, I glance over real quick...teenage girl texting while driving.

Fucking clueless.

In the last three years all my close calls have been from teenage girls.

I live near a high school so it seems to feed the problem.

Three years ago I was sitting at a stop light in the left turning lane when a fat pig of a girl in a convertible came flying through the intersection turning left in front of me and cut the corner VERY close missing me by inches.

Second time, same intersection as I approached the same left turn, a teenage girl turning right was going too fast and swung way out right where I would have been sitting had I got to the stop light 5 seconds sooner.

Third time, different intersection, I was approaching with a green light and a teenage girl coming from the right just completely ignored her red light and ran it turning left towards me. There is a sharp curve for me right before the intersection so I was already slowing.

All three of these idiots were heading towards the high school. I stopped by the local Sheriff office after the third event and reviewed these situations. They said they would step up the patrol in the area, I see no change.

I have since started going the long way to the house and avoid the roads between the school and my house ever since.
