Was entering a highway in my car and had just changed lanes into the right line after merging from an on ramp. When a Harley rider fully moved into my lane from the center lane w/o checking his mirrors or looking. Not even like half way moved in and realized I was there. He pushed me off the road and I passed him on the shoulder. After doing so the guy did not even look phased, as if he didn't just lose his life. Oblivious people do not deserve a motorcycle license. That's right deserve, cause riding is privilege; not a right. The thing is, I'm a fairly aggressive driver and normally don't take things like that lightly. But being that he was on a bike I felt absolutely no animosity towards the guy, but just kept thinking how lucky he was that I was paying attention; in a world where motorcycles are generally invisible to drivers.

Good on you that you were paying attention. I can not imagine how long that could possibly haunt a person, even though is was his fault. I have found that I am much more relaxed driving, and cautious since I added a Bike to the fleet. To qualify I have been licensed for 20 years , earned one speeding ticket when I has 16 and have not caused any accidents yet. I also became more cautious driving 8 years ago when I started rock climbing. I suspect knowledge fuels our wisdom.

thats great you moved out of the way bro, the other driver will learn one day that it pays to be extra cautious while being on 2 wheels at all times.

I hope so...he literally forced me onto the shoulder. Which is ironic, cause normally you hear cases of cars pushing motorcycles off the road.
