Rode to work this morning, from the get go I managed to get myself in between a 4x4 driver at the front (both of his brake lights were gone, unpredictable braking habits, braking at the last minute, random delays when moving off, had tinted windows so couldn't see if he was talking to someone or texting or fiddling with his privates) and an impatient as hell prick right up my ass (kept about a second of distance behind me through the initial 50km then 60km zones, when waiting at traffic he was not much more than a meter from my rear, beeped at me solidly 4 times and half a dozen or so mini beeps in the ~2km that he was behind me urging me to close the gap at the front). It was drizzling, road was narrow and the conditions were less than desirable so I had to put up with it until it widened up to two lanes connecting onto the main roads. As soon as it widened up to two lanes the guy behind me switched to the left lane and took off, I was in the right lane and could see about a dozen and half cars down the road the lane was held up by a truck waiting to turn right at the intersection, I wasn't in a hurry and having just gotten my bike back on Monday arvo I was happy to just be on it and waited patiently. After a while there was no cars moving to the left lane from either in front of or behind me, was bit strange I thought so two long and assuring head checks later I indicated and started to move off, at that exact time the 4x4 screeched its tires, no indicator, moved out right in front of me and took off. I stopped and let him zoomed down the road, when he had passed the truck side by side the car directly behind the still waiting to turn truck, who by then must have gotten tired of waiting, decided to moved off to the left lane, at that time I was about a dozen cars behind. What followed I could swear was orchestrated in secrecy, 6 cars all moved to the left one after another after the one in front of it, so my frontal clearance went from a dozen or so cars down to 10, to 9, to 7, to 4, to 1, all within seconds, not one of them acknowledged the horn or checked or stopped in their path. Good thing I had a solid amount of buffer to begin with however still had to veer all the way to the left inches away from the gutter to avoid all of them. The rest of the way was trouble-less, until I turned left at an intersection, which consists of two lanes, the left extends into the footpath, sort of like a mini-lane, a little stopping bay for drop off, enough for two cars. As I turned I saw the car with the right indicator on and its wheel at an angle, I moved to the right lane to buffer and slowed down, then, without warning, he moved off and did a U turn across both lanes, up and over the cement middle divider (god awful scratched sounds from the underbelly) and finished at the opposite traffic before noticing me. I had stopped dead by then and after catching his glance, gave him a thumbs up and rode off. Getting a GoPro 2 next week, wish I had it today already, it was a party.
