I'm all in favor of advantages to us motorcyclists.
But I find I do get pissed when I'm riding around the city and I'm the first at a light and the car/truck/van behind me pulls to my side (probably blocking the bicycle lane), then creeps forward as the other light slowly turns to yellow, then they floor it to be the first through the intersection and the first to be stopped behind all the cars at the red light ahead of us.
I got into a pissing contest with a big ugly van the other day and won, but didn't feel proud about it.
If drivers like this are willing to all but run me outta my lane just to get ahead by 7 feet, what are they gonna do if they see a bike cutting through traffic?
