after you ride for a while you learn to read cars and learn when they are geniounly a threat.

Sometimes cars merge into my lane and I am forced into the emergency lane, no big deal, evade and go on, it is part of being on a motorcycle, the only time I get upset is when I truly think a driver try to hurt me.

Distraction happens, you need to be able to accept that cars may not see you or may not even acknowledge you re there ,no need to get aggressive.

As you get more experience these things are academic and you re ready for it.

If you are not ready to accept these things as part of riding then you don't belong on a motorcycle.

Getting upset, flipping people off and blowing a fuse every time it happens will not change this fact.

Either accept it or do not ride, be ready to evade if necessary and live happy!

It appears I've been summoned.

You don't need a large vehicle, you just need to get creative on your install sometimes.


This is the one I've had for years in 2 separate cars, which I really need to make it my third since I have a different car now.

Welcome to Alberta! People can’t apologize for their mistakes and blame others for their wrongful actions and to add insult to injury their first reaction is the finger. I have a box of broken ones if anyone wants to see.

What happened to getting rid of the photoradar after they admitted it was a cash cow? The City council in Edmonton has to go!

I would get into too much trouble if I had a train horn. However, making idiot drivers sh!t themselves would be sooo worth it.

I've got an air horn on a bike of mine and it's nice. I don't think you can have a horn be too loud. Most people don't even hear normal horns if they have music playing.

Plus cars are so insulated these days, you barely hear anything at all.

The guy was an ass, doesn’t excuse his behavior. But I ride, a lot and take issue with getting lumped in with this guy or others that sadly have NO situational awareness.

This guy will eventually get hurt riding like that. Your restraint probably saved his life...... that time. If he does this to someone else who’s not paying attention, he gets seriously hurt or dead.

You can tell this assclown is an idiot just by the fact he’s AGATT.

This frustrates me so much. I have good friends that ride and they're always talking about looking out for them and safety. But more times than not these bikers are driving like complete morons. The guy didn't even use a blinker to move over so there's no reason for him being pissed off, it's not even like you were tailgating him.

I mostly notice it with the Gold Wing or the HD types. Sport bike guys are either moving faster than traffic or get out of your way.

My brother rides. They pay attention to their surroundings. I think the problem is you get all of these new people because it's cool and they ride the same in the mountains or the highway. The moment they get on a bike everyone is supposed to pay attention to them. I guarantee the guy in the video posted some rant on social media about how you are supposed to pay attention to bikers.

I'm sorry... What?! Atgatt is all the gear all the time, and if that's what you meant then I totally don't understand. Maybe agatt means something other than atgatt.

Wearing all your gear all the time is smart, and safe. It's certainly not idiotic.

When it’s 90° F agatt is more dangerous then just a vest. For a LOT of reasons.
