So you've become one of the road rage idiots we all complain about and you want someone to say it's okay, it's not you??? I suggest you get some professional help. Leave the cheap forum help before you get killed. Okay, it's just what you paid for it. Take it for what it's worth.

It is very easy for me to get upset with other driver's stupidity, so I understand! What you need to focus on is that your job is to keep you and your wife safe! Chasing down idiots in their cars could be a full time job because they are everywhere! Remember that an angry person in a car beats an angry motorcyclist almost every time.

Keep him a stranger

I have been in situations that I could have gone off on a rage and confronted another driver for a goofy move, But
before I do my mind goes to the fact that they missed me and are now beyond the danger zone.
I figure that I am safe and question, "do I really want to know this guy?"
I do not want to exchange vital information like Drivers license numbers, Names, addresses, Insurance data ect...
Anger can and should be controlled and if you can't find a handle on your reactions, you should seek professional assistance.
Best of luck on the outcome and glad to know you and your wife are safe. Be thankful that you are not behind Bars!

Maybe you could have gotten his plate # and called 911 and report as very aggressive driver, what he did and where.
Been there myself going S. over Howard F. bridge, heavy trfc and guy in white car starts coming into my lane from r side,
cars backed up 1 lane to my left,I could only get as much left as possible, I laid on horn he flips me the bird, trfc started
moving and I was able to get one lane over, BUT I got his plate #, pulled into breakdown lane and made the call, gave
make, model and color, plate # and from what state. Yeah it was a freakin scary situation and had it not been for trouble
down the hi-way some 8 miles with a few cruisers I think that schmuck might have gotten away with it, Next thing I know
though there are a few staties after that car, I told the police what he did, how I made eye contact with him as he is
trying to get over in my lane, turns out he was drinking and they arrested him on the spot.

My attitude now 'Never leave home without the PHONE."

WELL ! so much for me telling him to call 911 ! I should have picked up on his grammar and know he
isn't from the states. That does not give the other guy the right to cut him off, not at all BUT he was
still able to get his wife to work, then go home. He better do him self a favor and take care of his anger
or it will surely lead him to a very bad situation.

Boxing will surly help blow off steam. Just remember, motorcycle loses when you challenge a car driver.

Eye contact and acknowledgement are not always all that much. On a jaunt from Florida up to Ohio I got into a torrential down pour in the hilly country on I-75 somewhere north of Knoxville. Traffic is hauling a$$ and I'm moving on out in the left lane so I can control closing speeds and relative speed. I begin to ease past a young lady and see her look at me in her mirror. about time i get to here back door she decides she wants to change lanes. I do my usual horn honk followed by quick clutch and loud throttle rap. I know she hears it because I see her shoulders go up to her ears in a cringe. It does not in any way slow her movement into my lane. so I bite into the throttle and zip on past her mostly in the lane eventually a bit on the paved shoulder. she never modified her rate of lane change. incredible. Point is I didn't try to stop her or damage her vehicle or flip her off (although I have been known to make some hand gestures from time to time I admit). I mean can you really expect to educate them? Do you really think if they just had one interaction with you or me we could correct that type behavior? Not going to happen. You are just wasting your time and setting yourself up for a more troublesome and dangerous encounter.

Yeah she might have been diddling her self as she read a hot text and had no interest in messing up her rythem!

And yes it sucks, can only hope Karma teaches her a lesson an let her cut in front of a BIG RIG, about all we can do
is be more careful and thank God we are still up and riding. Over-riding the feeling to really do something is NOT easy
but better off in so many ways. . . times like that though, make you hope they 'F' up but royally.

Maybe it's better to install one security camera on your bike! It helps you to calm down, since you know you have already recorded all this, just leave the rest to the police! Safety goes first when ride on road and get away from the stupid cars!
