i've being riding for about a month or so now on my Ls. though i am an experience rider and have roadcraft. so forgive me in advance if one is offended by my outlawness with carrying a pillion. anyhow. I was heading home from work and transporting my partner in peak hour today. it was slightly sprinkling in sydney. the traffic was good accept a few nastees here and there but none were dramatic. until.. pennant hills road. the road is usually packed with cars in the evening, heading to parramatta and western sydney. I noticed this van cutting into traffic, from the left. as I rode by I had a glimps at his face. didn't think much of it. so a few hundred meters down I notice he was coming up from behind. we were both on the right lane. usually I would allow someone to tail gate me for about 10 seconds or so before I take action. the time passed and I raisted my hand to signify his problem. pulled over to the left to let him pass. as he passed I shouted out at him for being a dim wit. after he passes me, he cuts into my lane and slams on the brake! so I had to of course slam on the front brakes too. man was I pissed!! so I followed him and hoped a red light turns up so I can approach him. all the way down pennant hills rd we had green light all the way! my route required me to exit onto cumberland or james ruse drive. but by then my blood was boiling with rage and wanted to burn this guy's house down. I have had many tail gaters but none like this. so I decided to follow the guy. he did turn off into quiet streets in north parramatta. by now he knew I was following him and wanted a confrontation. we got to this section of the road where we both went in circles. think of a T intersection at an acute angle and another road connecting the ajoining road making a triangle. we went in loops. about 3 or so time I believe, until I had to stop for traffic I couldn't risk going fast because of the wet surface and my inexperience in carrying a pillion. so I kinda lost him after that as he turned back onto pennant hills rd. by the time I got back on.. I lost him. I rode around the area searching for him because he must live in the area to know those particular streets. I did kinda reckonise this parked vehicle similar to his, but nobody was in it. though I am pretty sure it was it. pity I didn't jot down the number plate. my bad. anyhow it was kinda fun in the end. an experience to learn from. :grin: anybody else go through this extreme circumstances? do you guys ignore these things when your life is threatened?
