There's a couple pickup trucks out there with dents from me.

I had a lady fly across 3 lanes right into me yesterday so she could hit her brakes & make a turn. I hit my brakes and horn and jumped the curb. And people don't believe me when I say at least one person tries to kill me every day...

I'm not afraid to let a finger fly every now and then. I will give a few words of advise to a cell phone using motorist too. Most people won't mess with a "biker". Hell, we're crazy , man!

Booting a vehicle bigger then you is a good way to become roadkill.

yup. It's surprising how many seem intentional - nobody can be that stupid. I've noticed vehicles with Harley-Davidson or other motorcycle stickers are the worse - I always stay away from them.

They're all out to get you. That's half the fun. No sense in getting cranked up about it. Dodge, live, ride. I don't get upset about 'em cause I expect the danger and the unending stupidity never surprises me.

A buddy of mine told me this past weekend to assume that once I throw that right leg over the seat that I become invisible to the rest of the world.

I always evaluate what I could do or have done better, both before as a preventative measure and after with respect to how I handled an incident. Some incidents I shrug off, others I give the "salute" to. It's reactionary based on the level of circumstance. But I always remember that when riding, I have the smaller weapon ... it is in that statement that I have learned to forgive. But I don't forget, and that keeps me vigilant with regard to the next IDIOT! Ride defensively people, and ride to be seen!

I've booted a couple plus pulled up beside one at a light and punched off his side mirror. Now, I do this when I'm in a situation where I can put a car or two between us after. Also, I always have a .40 cal strapped to my ankle under my jeans if they want to make it personal. Attachment 8553
