At least you could see him coming & had time to react.
No point in chasing after them though - that van is a lot bigger than you & a slight knock could have you on the floor. I know it's maddening, but it's not worth giving them your life :)

With respect mate, you're worrying about something you really should let slide, I'm a hot head on the roads at times but if I got annoyed at minor stuff like this, I'd be annoyed all the time, where I drive/ride, people cut you up on a regular basis.

Life's too short and riding is risky enough, don't add to the mix by getting annoyed over something you seen coming and could easily react to.

I don't often get pissed, after all i commute 45 miles a day through London traffic everyday. It was just the fact that this guy was in his own little world in his tin cage, not giving a shit about anyone and anything. I have been looking at the way people drive in the uk and I think Africa John put a post up a week ago about lane discipline, god it is so so true.

Just want to move somewhere else in europe, where people give a shit about each other.

rant over.

Can't see what the fuss is about, he was miles from you & you were going slow enough to react appropriately

No point chasing him, just let him get on with it & on his way

IMHO if you don't react to this sort of behavour then these muppets will keep doing it. If it was a really bad stunt, I used to ride in front and force stop these morons and have it out.

Road rage? Yes, and for good reason! Not so prone to flying off the handle these days being an old git but when I was, er, more prolific with my rage it was cos my sister and two brothers were also riding bikes and I imagined that my reactions might save their or another bikers life. I can guarantee there are quite a few motorists out there that will always think twice before disregarding a biker in future. :whistle:
