      Not road rage. Clearly just an example of a typical woman parallel parking.

      Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden

      I also think it should serve as a reminder to motorcyclists to be careful of what you decide to do to something that weighs a few thousand pounds more than you do. You always hear of guys that kick, hit, punch, etc. cars as they pass, etc. Here is an example of what can go wrong with that. And granted, that's also coming from the standpoint that I don't know the whole story, does he know her, etc. I mean that in general - just move out of the way, take a deep breath, and move on.

      I saw a Harley rider almost eat it yesterday morning trying to do something similar. A guy in a pickup changed lanes in front of him - not RIGHT in front of him, he probably had close to a car length (+/-). Harley guy sees him, moves to the outside of the lane to avoid him, and then looked like he was going to go around on the truck on the shoulder. Instead, he rides up to the guys bumper and just starts blipping his throttle (remember, loud pipes save lives right?), honking his horn, and flashing his high beams. Then he moves to the right corner of the truck's bumper and keeps blipping his throttle. He then pulls up alongside the driver's side door (nearly hitting the car next to him in the neighboring lane) and continues to blap his throttle. I then see him lock up his brakes for a second, his rear fish tails a bit, but he recovers and it looked like he was continuing to harass the pickup around a corner before I lost sight of him.

      Did it suck? Yeah. Is it worth you getting killed? No. Deep breath, acknowledge and move on

      Sad but I watched the video and thought, "huh a zx-11, big bike for brazil"
      I tell them to tackle the concrete at walking speeds and re-think their position.

      Been there.

      Last season I had a guy refuse to yield right of way on a multi-lane ramp. He was ready to just drive his POS right over me, no worries.

      I flipped. All over the horn, visor up, obscenities a sailor'd be proud of, the works. Really raged it up.

      Suddenly it occurred to me exactly wtf I was doing. My next move was to flip the blinker on, head for the shoulder, and sit a couple rows of cars out.

      But yeah.

      Here in California once the car is stopped in traffic, we just jab a knife in the tire, then take off.

      Great plan until you get impaled by your own knife in an unexpected lowslide.

      It's foldable and in my boot or tank bag. I'm not riding with my USMC KA-BAR, that is in my glove box of my car.

      Here's a new one to me, I just got back from lunch and on my way i was on a busy four lane route, 45mph limit, commercial shopping zone area. I was at a light, at the front, gaggle of cars behind me. Wayyyy up ahead is another plethora of cars all bunched together. Nothing between them and me.

      Green light, I give it the go and I hit the speed limit really quick and back off. I notice there is a SUV turning left and as I approach the passenger gives me the finger I guess I accelerated to the point that would prevent them from turning left in front of the cages I left at the light and that really seemed to piss them off

      There is such an unnatural hatred towards motorbikes from cagers that there is no way in the world I would physically confront or taunt one of these mental pillars of our society. But the rest of you badass' with a deathwish feel free to go ahead

      The hatred seems to trickle down based on vehicle size. The larger the vehicle, the more people seem to think they own the road.

      I agree. It's mostly young and middle aged white males in their bro dozers in SoCal that will attempt to keep up with you stop light to stop light, tail gate you, or won't yield while merging.

      This is not exclusive to SoCal, my experience with the bro-dozer crowd up here reflects the same thing.
