I hate cagers!!!

So, I'm getting off of the 101 to take Queen Creek....

ANd this White full size van rams me from behind. I had slowed down after I passed him, a minute later (maybe half a mile after I passed him) I glance in my right mirror, and all I can see is his headlight, and its accelerating. I look at my left mirror as I twist the throttle... an instant later he hits. The bike lurches up then the back end swings right. Then a few hits of violent tank slap (got bruises on my wrists). Then I swerve right to the next lane, and he goes around me. My 2 buddies are ahead of me, and I'm thinking he's gonna go ram them. He doesn't, fortunately. Traffic clears, and he slams on the brakes, and swings into the left hand turn lane. I was gonna u-turn right away and follow the ****er... but, instead I gas up, get my buddies attention (hand flailing in the air) Brake hard and swing around. By this time, I've lost him. So, I make a few more wild u-turns trying to figure out where he went, with my friends following me having no idea what the hell I'm doing.

So if you see a white van, kill the driver for me.

I'm just glad I left the girlfriend home on this trip. Having her on the back could have seriously changed the outcome of this story.

I would have gutted the f**ker.

If I got a dollar for every A-HOLE homicidal cage driver I run into, I wouldn't have to work and I'd be able to afford a real Sportbike.

Build a man a fire, and he is warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he is warm for the rest of his life.

Everything I know I learned from killing smart people and eating their brains.

You have to watch out for the drivers of our town. They are nuts. Awhile back I had a guy in a truck try to smash me between his bumper and the back of a car ahead of me. That is part of the reason I am keeping the bike off the street for daily commutes. Just on trips out of town and group rides, will the bike see the street.

We seem to be the country's collecting pot of bad drivers here in AZ.

We have a disease here called, "White Van Man". He's just as dangerous as "Volvo Driver", maybe even more. Easily identifiable as he doesn't wear a seatbelt, is usually talking on a mobile phone (what's a hands-free kit ?) while eating a bacon buttie and looking where he's been rather than where he's going. If you come across one of these "professional drivers", avoid at all costs. Or shoot the f__kers !

Glad you live to tell the tale, Kevlar.

Kevlar -

Glad you're alright.

I asked James Bond(007) if he would have a few Van Seeking Missles installed on my VFR, he said it wouldn't be a problem. I'll have one targeted for a white van in your area.

Ride Safe.

As an aside, a friend of mine was nearly ran over from behind by a cager. He has always seen the funny side in everything. His comment was, " Damn, I wish we were more like dummies, that way my head would spin all-the-way around and I would wake up with wood every morning."

Glad to hear you are alright! Not sure what I would have done in that situation, I know what I would have wanted to do but in actuality I probably would have just craped my pants and pulled over. Watch out for drivers who can't see because their head is up their ass! them all!!

Are you a democrat?

------------------------------------------------------------------

I was once threatened by some redneck in a pick-up (as if they drive anything else...). I was traveling on a 4-lane highway, 2 lanes each direction, and I switched lanes to go around his slow arse, then I hit a red light (hate when that happens!!!). Anyway, he rolls down his window (manually) and proceeds to tell me how he wishes I was dead and those death machines are nothing but worthless hunks of metal and that if I wasn't careful he was gonna "run my ass over" and laugh about it when he read it in the next day's newspaper.

I simply sat there and laughed as he spoke, then laughed at the irony when he proceeded to peel away from the red light as I calmly took off and went on my way.

I have followed people to their houses before after being run off the road or some other stupid driving incident and given them an earful. I have this problem see: when I am mad, particularly when it comes to driving, I have no fear. It hasn't gotten me into trouble yet thankfully, and I'm trying to curb my "road rage" and react more level headed to moronic driving offenders. It sure is tough though...
