What Would You Have Done: Lane Merging Edition



Quote:
As motorcyclists, we’re all too familiar with car drivers merging into our lanes, seemingly blind to the fact we’re occupying the lane they are trying to merge into. But what’s proper etiquette when a two-lane road turns into one? Which order should vehicles in a double-file line let each other into a single-file line? Whatever your answer, it’s probably not what this woman was thinking as she comes from behind this motorcyclist and co-occupies the lane he’s in. He then gets upset, honks the horn a few times, gives the driver a quick lesson in merging, calls her a choice expletive then rides on.

Normally that’s where a story like this would end. Instead, he spots a police officer up ahead, flags him down, and sticks him on the car driver.

Exactly. np. The car accelerated and was easily overtaking the person on the bike, and he deliberately accelerated to have a problem. Doesn't know how to ride.

My first thought; my next was staged. Sure was a nice road. That was my first thought before I noticed the joke-on-a-ride. lol

Another topic related to other thread. My new amsoil filter arrived a couple days ago but now I'm thinking of leaving the motul in as not really bothering me right now. Might be me. idk. But too lazy to change out new oil as I paid a ton for that oil change.

Daily occurrence for those of us that live around larger cities. And yes, looked like he was trying to get more clicks for his vlog or whatever.

Just as YSR50 stated, I see this daily on my commute around Baltimore. As much as I'd love to teach all of them a lesson, I'd much rather prefer to go home to my wife and kids. Especially since they aren't going to listen to you and comprehend it anyway. Either way though, I'd be interested to know what the end result was with the police involvement. I'd assume probably nothing, but I could be wrong.

I'd have turned in my man card, started using the women's restroom and eventually shot myself in the head after a short bout of depression for being such a pussy.

That biker was a whiny bitch running to the cops. Either get in there and fight for your spot or let the woman have it, but a motorcycle fighting for space against a cage is a losing battle and people just don't give a fuck anymore. You never know when someone is just going to snap and run your ass over maliciously.
