Grr. Caging it on Broadway less than an hour ago, a superb R1100RS pulls out right in front of me. I don't usually worry about this -- even though it's stupid to freak out cagers this way -- because as a biker I know he can match the speed of traffic in well under a second. Except he doesn't, so a moment later I'm standing on the brake. First chance I get I change lanes to pass him as he's still not even doing the speed limit, and by then he's drifted over till he's just about riding the dashed white line and his left pannier is in my lane. Yeah, I technically still have room but I don't trust this idiot not to wander over and end up burger in my wheel well. But I don't want to be behind him anymore; rider logic reversed: when I'm on a bike I want the idiot in a car in front of me, not behind me. When I'm in a car I want the idiot on a bike behind me... for his sake. I just swerve wide like he's a bus and put him behind me.

Way to let the side down, guy.
