I always tell new riders the same thing dog. There are 2 kinds of cage drivers on the road. #1 Those that never see you. #2 Those that see you and still try to kill you. If you treat them ALL like that I think you have a better chance of living.

I passed a kid in a car in the fast lane yest on the way to work. He was doing 62 IN THE FAST LANE, had the ENTIRE back window and seat filled with crap, and was READING A FREAKIN NOVEL going down the road. I'm still not sure how I didn't take the front bumper off with my hitch when I went around him

Get angry sure enough at dumb drivers, but when they cut in between Gypsi and I or do something dumb to her I loose it.

Last year south of the Gap somewhere I'm leading a group. I also must say that what I'm about to say is not a promotion for my actions. Anyhow, back to the dork. There are about 4 or 5 of us in the group and I notice a cage not paying attention because I've brought everybody over into the correct lane as we were going from two to one via a merge ahead with TONS of signs along the way. I could see it happening!

Sure enough he cut right in on Gypsi. I called her on the CB and told her I was coming back!! She didn't argue and we switched and the tough armor on my gloves just couldn't quit hit the glass! Gypsi calmed me down on the CB finally and off we went with him stuck in the group.

Made me think- what if he had cut in on the wrong group! Would he have cut in on a bunch of 1% ers?

Gotta ride like they'll do it every time.

fortunatly i was trained well when it came to riding motorcycles both on road and off. i assume all cars are going to pull out in front of me, that all cars are going to cut me off. luckily sunday i was already off the throttle and ready to brake when the yukon pulled out in front of me. always be aware.
