Again are you stupid???? Object on the video are closer than they appear. Just because you give a signal doesn't mean it clear to come on over...Its called a signal of intent..Not I'm coming over because i used my blinker...Also if you don't like my videos then don't watch them...

Famous last Words

My wife sends me comics, one of them is Famous last words, the caption is a cemetery, with tomb stones, in this case, it would read" I had the right of way"

Just saying, motorcycle safety stresses avoidance, 5 more seconds and he could have pushed you into the concrete barrier--it is obvious is a idiot and that is his or her normal driving. In Ontario, you could have taken the plate number and filed a complaint, improper lane change, you would need to appear in court with the video and the person would be fined. Did that once, was run off the road along with several cars behind us, caught up to the driver and got the plate number----the fine was reduced and my wife was pissed, never again!

I wasn't worried about them hitting me. I just maintained my speed. If needed i could have grabbed a handful of throttle and shot by him..You can do that with an FJR not so much with a Versys....

I know for certain..while riding..you've never squirted in front of a car like he was trying to squirt in front of you...never shot a close gap between cars while passing...today's car's are insulated against sound..add listening to a radio..or ****in' phone..all of the horn honking in the world..just like loud pipes..won't do you a bit of good until it's too late...your video could've ended much differently..and as much as we don't agree on a lot of stuff..I don't want to see that happen...

It WAS the other guys fault.
He should be made aware of his ignorant driving.
Two wrongs don't make a right.
A Versys could also have "squirted" through there.
I'd hate to have to do ANY commuting on those roads.

I kinda see both sides I suppose, I think Joe had plenty of room to maneuver around or slow and let the guy in, But I also think the guy could have been paying better attention and waited the extra 6 -10 seconds or so and let the bike by. I wonder if he would have pulled over like that if Joe had been in a Car? But I'm also fairly confident (not 100%) that a car would'nt fit between the wall and the car, so someone would have had to give. In the end, no one hurt, no damage done, all good.

I don't agree Ron, the rules of the road (sort of) state that you have to wait for traffic to pass before you enter their lane!
It's downright rude & potentially dangerous just to enter another vehicles' lane & hinder their progress.

When l 1st moved to Vegas I used the ex-wife's Kia Sportage & every ignorant c*nt on the road would pull in front of me.
Then l bought a 7.3 litre turbo diesel F350 dually & no-one pulled out on me!!!!

Problem solved!

My favorite is the Don't Mess With Texas signs that were for the anti-littering campaign. But i like them more as a warning for people....

I understand what you are saying, however if everyone waited for traffic to pass we would never need blinkers then would we?

As for entering their lane and hindering progress, what if they are driving way over the limit and you come up on you as you are already mid maneuver? It's hard to judge from video, distances, speed etc. So I have no problem siding with Joe in this case and taking his word for it. The point being, I don't think the car guy was an Ass, and I don't think Joe one for riding on past him like that.

You both have valid opinions.....


Yes i could have eased off the throttle and let him in...


Yes he should have waited for a faster vehicle to pass thats in the lane he wanted.


I chose to run beside him to let him know "hey I'm here" because its a 90% chance he never looked in his mirror. So maybe next time he will. Plus i had plenty of room to get by even if he took up the whole lane...


Extra bonus....Hey i like F ing with people..

1 - Since the Camaro had no qualms about using the right lane to pass later on in the video, if he was paying attention he would have passed on the right instead of the left.

2 - I think I know what will be on your tombstone ;-)

Why not just slow down and let the fool have the lane without all the drama? I don't understand.

Blinkers as you call them are to tell other drivers you are turning left or right.......Or in your World do they mean "l'm just going to pull in front of you because of the fact that l'm indicating!"

What don't you understand Grasshopper?

Next question; Why is it right to let another driver/bully get their own way so they can perform the same action over & over again?
