Not on a bike, but a funny one none the less.
Started up a ramp in my Chevy Van and this guy about 8 car lengths back in a Ford stationwagon "launches". I knew he had by the amount of soot coming out of the tailpipe. He pulls about even with the back of my door and we are accelerating at the same pace. He's honking the horn and shaking his fist, all the while we're closing on the traffic ahead and I'm running out of ramp. He's watching me and I'm watching the cars ahead. I figure he's got just...about...enough...time...to...stop and I jab my brakes, move to the center lane (which was completly empty). In the mean time, he looks up, panics, slams on the brakes. I tap my horn and wave as I go by. Now here is where it gets good. His girlfriend/wife was reaming him a new one, pointing her finger and her mouth going 100 mph. He's got his head pulled completely into his shoulders (think turtle), both hands on the steering wheel, and looking absolutely straight ahead!
Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.
