To the dude in the black VW who cut me off:

Thanks for nearly causing an accident by cutting me off and slamming on your brakes, straddling both lanes on Quinpool earlier today. I realize you might not have been happy I pulled up in front of you at the red light, but I didn't hit your car, wasn't in the crosswalk, and was on a motorcycle and pulled away from the line way faster than you. I figured by GUNNING your engine, trying to keep up with me, and flipping me the bird, you had made your point.

Nope, apparently you wanted to test my brakes (hint: it's a modern bike, they are really nice discs), and almost cause me to rear-end you and REALLY hurt myself and my bike.

I understand what I did could have been a bit *annoying*, and I'm willing to accept that. Hell, I'd gladly take the fine and 2 points off my license if it meant you lost yours for a year. But there was no reason to escalate "I'm pissed at this biker" to "I'm gonna physically hurt him".

Good thing I'm not as shitty a driver as you and saw it coming. Better luck next time. —Maneuverable motorcyclist
