And live to regret it. Sorry to rant, but it was an absolute KENT of a day, at work and on the way home, so here's the beans. Riding home on Maribyrnong Rd, at about...6pm tonite. Cold, dark, and tired, but I love the ride, regardless of time of day, or if I've had a sh!tty day at work (it only helps the situation ). So I'm just cruising...not worrying much about the traffic, and not filtering like crazy...taking my time. As I merge from the right lane to avoid being stuck behind the tram, this wanker in a Subaru Liberty GT (black, looked fairly new), speeds up and ALMOST clips my tail/rear end. I shit bricks, and keep riding, heart sitting inside of my helmet at this point. 500m down the road, the "wanker" speeds up and comes besides me (on my right hand side), only to proceed to REV the living f@ck out of the Suby, while shouting something to me, through the passanger window. I pay him no attention, and just keep riding, so the c0ck speeds up yet again, cuts in front of me, and SLAMS his brakes on. I expected this, and just wanted to get out of his way, so I jumped on the brakes, and managed to stop a decent distance before his rear bumper. So he sits there, in traffic. Not moving. With his brake lights on. At this point, my blood is starting to boil, and I can't take it any more. I go towards his driver side window, but he takes off slowly, and I'm face to face with the rear quarter panel of a Subaru Liberty GT. Left foot comes up, and I gave it my best Muay Thai impression, and kick as hard as I humanly could. I heard a massive thump, and the c0cksucker slams his brakes on, and gets out of the car. Me...sitting there on my bike..had no idea what to do...but this kent just started yelling at me, calling me names, blah blah blah. A guy on a white/red R6 pulls up (sorry I didn't get your name, but if you are reading this, I appreciate all the help, and taking your time to look out for a fellow rider!), and asks if everything is OK. Subaru kent started yelling shit at both of us, saying he has my number plate and will call the cops, etc... He didn't follow me home though. Luckily. I, in no way condone, or promote road rage or violence...but if someone is putting my safety and well being in danger, I'll be damned if I don't stand up for myself and fight back. Sorry for the rant. Needed to vent.
