Okay... I'll probably get jumped all over for THIS one. Am I missing something? I'm new pretty much and will be the first to admit I know very little compared to most in here, and feel like I keep a pretty open mind on things. Give me some feedback on why this is a "good" practice please. Not trying to start a war... just truly think I'm missing something.
I always get pretty ticked off when cagers don't treat me with same respect and courtesy as another vehicle, but.... when I see someone doing such things and pissing off the ones on cages, I can see why sometimes they don't like "us".
I use to ride (waaaay back in college) with a buddy that kept a fistfull of ball bearings in his jacket and if a cager tailed him way too close and wouldn't back off, or if someone cut him off close or other various "infractions", he'd just get in front of them (if he wasn't already) and slip his hand in.... and gently toss 'em up and take off..... after witnessing this once.... I no longer rode when he was along. The worst part was he was continually splitting lanes, darting out in front of people, cutting over just missing cars, etc... I didn't understand his single sided vision.
