In a case like the OP, however, I would never do it because a) sight lines were poor, b) the rider made the effort to get up to speed, and c) I wouldn't tailgate a motorcycle because of the added risk of injury in a rear end collision.

I also wouldn't do it to an under powered car who was making the effort to merge (I've owned VW bugs and a Geo Metro myself).

The ones that irritate me are the fast powerful cars who simply refuse to merge at traffic speed.
So you punish drivers who displease you.

Maybe they should try to be more considerate of others?

So the guy is 5ft off the OP's ass and, in your mind, is trying to kill the OP. But in 1/4 mile he still hasn't managed to close the 5ft gap and finish the job off.

Yes, I see now that clearly Mr. Douchebag was trying (and trying very hard, I might add) to kill the OP, Indeed, a more cut and dry case of attempted murder would be harder to find, and I want to thank you for pointing out the error of my ways.

I consider it a privilege to be able to partake in forums similar to this one, and have access to those, like yourself, who are clearly more adept at seeing the facts (startlingly obvious facts, upon further reflection) than myself. Thank you sincerely for your help and wisdom. I am a better man because of it.
