grumpy cagers

cagers around here are generally very understanding and patient when it comes to motorcycles. they make space when i lane split, and patiently wait when i skip the 50 car queue and push in in front, etc.

this mornng though, i got 3 ladies in expensive suv's trying to prevent me from splitting. they were minutes apart on my commute but they all seem to be pissed at their hubbies or something, and refused to make way.

then 2 dudes in bmw changed lane in seperate incidents and nearly took me out. the last guy appologised.

some days are fun

others are nailbiting

just saying

drivers seem to get worse when the weather gets colder. i noticed it when i was splitting to and from work on fri. i think they just don't expect motorcycles to be out during inclement weather. stay safe, and always try to leave yourself an out.

Here in AZ we have snow birds that come here in the colder months. They drive like s**t. I completely understand your pain. Be safe out there!

we've got all out summer here. i think the heat must be getting the guys all sweaty and irritated, but all those fancy suv's has climate controll so those sun-shines-from-my-ass drivers cant blame the heat

yeah this was on the n3 north. the n12 is pretty easy going since the road works so no problems there but the n3 north was like attitude valley.

even on motorways with my lane clear, when i pass other cars i go as wide as possible in case they pull out, im gonna be worse off at 70mph even if it isn't my fault...
yea this morning i was communicating with the first lady regarding how little space i need to pass, but she persisted with her my-sunglasses-are-bigger-than-yours stare, not responding.

I generally steer well clear of the SUV's. For some reason they will always try and prevent/block you from lane splitting. Oh and when you cut to the front at traffic lights these guys (mostly the big V-8 SUV's) will always try and drag-race you.

That's why I don't lane split and take my time and enjoy it. I make goofy dances or whatever while waiting to keep me entertained
