If people try to race me or try to get me to react irrationally. I pretend they don't exist and let them go on by. I have yet to have someone intentionally get personel for no reason. There just looking for a reaction cause they lack any content in their life.

We all come across A$$holes drivers... I just keep on riding, no need to escalate things unless it's totally call for..

Never forget who helped you!
Never forgive who fu*ked you.
Doing a trackday is like "SEX", no matter what happens you'll want to hit it again..

I never had any cars try to race me. I tend to ride pretty hard though.

Once I was splitting lanes on the highway in traffic the was rolling real slow. But this Dodge Ram, got halfway into the next lane as I was approaching to block me. I sat for a while then once they started rolling and traffic cleared a bit, I tried getting in the next lane and passing him and he tried to hit me. I was recovering from an injury to my shoulder and I hit these tar snakes while accelerating and got horrible death wobble on my ZX7R. I saved it and just took the next exit. Damn, that was some bullshit though.

Usually people get out of the way when I'm behind them, switch lanes. Something I've seen which is crazy, I'll be cruising in the fast lane just cruising though. And the car in front of me will get halfway out of the lane to the left to let me through. Like I won't even be trying to speed, but they go out of their way to do that and I feel obligated to go ahead and shoot through.

I do tend to ride especially a lil harder once I see another sportsbike rider. My competitive need to shut them down usually comes out. Lol. But most don't try to race though which sucks. I had more people try to race with my streetfighter ZX7R.

Cagers want to race me on my Wing. Seems most of them are women driving SUV's and like to tailgate me. I try to stay off the street on the 10 because you seem to have to run 100+ just to keep em off your 6 on the interstate.

Guess I didn't make the tailgating part clear enough, the ones I refer to don't want to pass but rather run up on you and ride your rear. Iv'e tried the passive thing and all it get me is boxed in a cluster of idiots just waiting for a chance to be part of a 50 car pileup.

Id lane split in that case if I felt like I was targeted and or in a situation where I felt my safety could easily be compromised. I haven't had anyone mess with me since I have been riding in Greenville,sc. They either speed when they see me or leave a bus length. Other then that nothing a handful of throttle can't fix.

Ive yet to see it be anyone trying to race me. Its the same motivation for everyone. They just dont want someone to pass them. Thats it. Noone ever wants to be behind someone else. Ive had people do it, i decide to be funny and drop 3 gears a d give a quick twist then slow down ti get next to them and they want no part of a race. They just hate that you passed them. And that goes for while Im riding or driving. Same stupid things. The only difference is that the bike fits between lanes, so I dont have to be part of the tailgatr fest that have become the freeways.
