Southbound on Knight Street the other day, while putting along not making any sudden movements, wheelies, standing on gas tank, backwards somersault, etc., ~30 yr old caucasian guy VW touareg flicks turn signal on and starts slowly moving towards me.
I gave him a polite little NEEP to let him know I was there. This guy flinches back into his lane a little, but then I guess he was having a bad day, or his wife was gang-banged by sportbikers the night before, cause he just laid down on the horn and went back towards my direction, fast.
I was nearly sandwiched into the centre divider but I braked 'cause I felt like my life wouldn't be done until I flipped him a solid bird or two, since that was about the only way I could get back at him (haha, take that! a middle finger!! sucker)
Managed to get beside him, but before I bird-flipped, I asked what his problem is, because, you know, I'm actually kind of curious about what could cause a person to intentionally run off a random motorcyclist that did nothing wrong.
Could it be his wife that my buddies and I group banged the night before? Was he picked on by sportbikers at the shop when he brought his pink SVX in to get his chain lubed and mirrors adjusted at shop rate plus chain lube, mirror fluid, and flux fluid?
He replies with a finger, some cuss words, and spat at me but highway winds probably blasted it all over his car. I tell him to pull over so we could fist fight like civilized people, but he just holds his chin really high and yells "NOPE, CAN'T HEAR YOU", while constantly holding his middle finger at me.
So as rediculous as this sounds, I tried to punch his car. (Pre-emptive thanks to mature forum reader guys who will tell me violence isn't the answer in Canada). I couldn't reach his car so I thought about booting it but wasn't sure if I could maintain my balance after the kick so if anyone has a blackbelt in cage-fighting let me know
Because of this incident, I have learned that there's people out there who hate bikers just for the hell of it. I've also learned that I don't know how to deal with idiots without falling to their level. Anyways,
