As the generation that grew up playing Road Rash, we have some learning to do about de-escalation. Here’s how to avoid ending up as a hood ornament.

  • I just blast by the asses ,when on a bike, if they screw up , they get the finger first. Stopped at a light , after a guy wouldn't get off my tail, ( on my motorcycle) , told a dumb Marine to get out of his car and take his whoopin. He stayed in his car, left me alone. I'll be decent if you will.

  • Good insight. I like the part about those out hunting for incidents and acting as if it is their job to right all the 4 wheel wrongs. Not a good look. When I have seen some of the videos these guys produce, I think it really comes down to a few simple issues. For many of these guys, if you couldn't see what that car/pedestrian/dog/whatever was probably going to do, you don't have the situational awareness necessary to ride. If you have to swear at/threaten/ or smash a mirror because of a situation that scared you because you hung around in a blind spot, didn't have an escape path, or were lane splitting at 5 times the rate of traffic and always grab your back brake and put it into a slide. You, may not have the skill set, maturity, or temperament to ride cupcake. It's not always the drivers or the rage riders. I see guys who have no business being on a bike at all pulling out of the dealership by my work, often on some litre sport bike, or full dress cruiser. They want to ride, but have never been on a bike until they are 30 or 40 and now they are scared they are going to get hit or crash. Riding the grease stipe, crab walking to a stop, stalling, short shifting, stomping the rear brake, and no gear. It couldn't be much fun riding around with your underwear in a knot and up your rear. Take an MSF course, learn to ride not just to operate a bike. When I ride, I treat it as if I'm invisible and the drivers around me are blind. I constantly scan the road looking for hazard potentials. I understand how to use the brakes, the engine, the suspension, and my body position, to get myself clear of danger and I always consider what my escape route is. I visualize my way though something, I don't fixate on the hazard and hope to not hit it. when riding, I'm fully present; enjoying the ride, but aware of the dangers. I know what to do if I go down. Having ridden motorcycles for over 43 years, having held a license for 40, and having raced, I've ben down a time or two. I'm not afraid; you have to accept that if you ride. Life is inherently dangerous. It's one of the things that makes it exciting. I know the last day I will be able to ride will come at some point so I want to enjoy the days I have had and are still to come. And, like anything I do, I want to be good at it. Not just get by or get lucky. Bikes are for people who like to live and experience; not rageoholics, the terminally afraid, or the perpetually immature.

  • I always give the peace sign and a thumbs up if I'm cut up, the driver is probably as shocked as you if they did not see you until the last second so why shout, this way they may give you more respect and look harder for a motorcyclist next time

  • Only ever had one serious road rage incident. Had a van intentionally try to run me off the road for lord knows what reason, they got along side me and tried to squeeze me against the concrete divider twice. I sped off down the highway but they chased me. Made the mistake of thinking I lost them and pulled over at a gas station. When they got out of the van and I realized there were 3 of them in there I pulled my firearm, whatever it was they suddenly stopped caring about it. So glad I don't live near the city anymore.

  • Some people in these comments still have a lot to learn. Your number one goal when riding a motorcycle is to get home safely. Any hostile interaction you have with another driver is going to lower your chances of that happening. Life isn't fair. You can't make everyone pay for their mistakes. It is a nice fantasy, but that is all it is.

  • many years ago, when I was learning to drive my father taught me a little rhyme that's important to ALL road users: Here lies young Orville Gray, He died proving his right of way. He also taught me that 95% of drivers don't see anything smaller than a 10 ton truck, and many will also miss big trucks. I found both to be very useful advice to keep in mind when I started riding motorcycles.

  • The only time I smacked a car was when a dude behind me moved the left lane, sped up, and then tried to merge into me when the lane went from 2 lanes to one. I honked, he didn't notice. I bashed his windshield... his wife certainly noticed and started yelling at him and he stopped trying to run me over and we sorted ourselves out. The funny thing is I don't think he was trying to hit me, I think he thought he'd actually passed me. Oy.

  • Most of the time they cut us off because they can't see us if you don't understand that you shouldn't be riding a motorcycle, personally i haven't had much problems with cagers unless they intentionally try to hit you, if they are using their phone it's not my fucking problem if they are tailgating me i let them pass

  • Driving mistakes are just that: Mistakes. Almost nobody intentionally cuts you off. Getting angry at them will cause them to become defensive and forget the actual mistake they made in their desire to be angry at the person who called it out. They have a better chance of learning if they themselves come to the private conclusion that they should be more careful; don't cause their pride to get in the way.

  • I'm a long haul trucker so I have to deal with it all, 12 to 14 hours a day 7 days a week. Rage isn't worth it, just blow it out your nostrils and accept it. Apprehending them won't change anything other than to create an altercation. If anything be cordial and friendly about it or say nothing. Courtesy begets courtesy, the golden rule reigns true 95% of the time. The other 5% being the person that tries to assault you or pull a weapon, in that scenario I'd say your well within your right to be angry then. Mistakes and accidents happen, words are words, weapons are weapons, and life will always find a way to test your resolve.

  • There's one other thing to consider. For motorcyclists, that rage is fueled by fear. When that car cuts us off, it's not just an accident, it's a potential death sentence to a motorcyclist. Such an event triggers a flight or fight response and too often the irrational wins, even for a moment. Road rage on motorcycles stems from the inability to control the primal instinct to fight when threatened. The best thing to do for drivers of all vehicles is to try and strengthen the rational parts of the mind. Keeping a cool head in a dangerous situation is paramount to avoiding accidents. That applies whether you are on two wheels, four wheels, or eighteen.

  • I clicked "I like it" even though I didn't really, but I believe the message is extremely important. Those riders who vent publicly and face off with a cager or their family only brings grief to those of us who just want to survive by our paying attention to everyone around us and doing our best to not be the cause of an accident or have a single vehicle accident. If there is way too much pressure to go fast or risk being an annoyance to a cager who is pissed because I don't ride as stupid as they drive I will just pull over and let the duffus by and or go to a lighter traffic area going my way. Racing is for the track only.

  • I always opt for the head shake or the simple "what the fuck?" one handed shrug. Subtle and non-inflammatory (unless the guy knows he fucked up and so adamantly refuses to accept it that he decides to start an argument), and it lets the wary driver know he screwed up and I noticed. Ride like you're standing on center stage and everyone has a gun pointed at you, cuz every car driver controls a 2 ton bullet as far as your physiology is concerned. If one of em accidentally pops a bullet 2 inches away from you, a simple "why?" in place of a middle finger is more likely to earn you an apology and less likely to earn you a follow-up shot.

  • The truth is, roads are full of idiots. One must learn how to handle it. I met idiots both when I was driving a car, and when I was driving a bike. As much as I was warned about how invisible one is on a motorcycle, by my experiences, it isn't any better in a car either. The only difference is, in a car you can correct others' mistakes much easier and safer. And in a car, when there is trouble, you are protected by the chassis. On bike it's different. When someone else fucks up, you have shorter time to react, and there is much smaller margin of overreaction. I think that makes a lot of people on bikes too agressive to drivers' fuckups. And I'm a bit hypocritical here, as in a car, I always yell and curse because of stupid drivers. I would never get out of the car and initiate an altercation, but I got pissed off rather easily.

  • oh? and what about the cagers that have a weird ass bone to pick with bikers for no reason? I don't record my rides, however, i've been subject to quite a few moments where if i hadn't slowed down fast enough, or gotten to a heavily populated area for witnesses, i probably would have been killed by a cager. like the SUV that drifted into my lane with no turn signal, and suddenly pulls back into their lane after they realize I"M STOPPED ( there was several seconds i was stopped and they still wheren't completely in my lane, just in front of me), and they did this after I dropped a gear to catch the turning lane light cause the timers here suck. Or the guy in that escort wagon who followed behind me by like two feet, i changed lanes, got behind me again nearly taking off my rear tire.. got several cars ahead, and got into a different lane, same thing.. blasted away put several vehicles between us, and pulled into a very populated parking lot, set the bike on side stand, and stood up off the bike arms up going WTF MAN!? suddenly he lost interest in his pursuit, meanwhile i still to this day have no idea what his problem was. and this is just two examples that stand out fresh in my mind. plenty of other similar instances, just different vehicles. and while i know you're not a man who would appreciate this.. you know what stopped ALOT of this crap for me? having my sidearm strapped to my leg and on display for every cager to see. suddenly no tailgaters, suddenly no one wants to "drift" into my lane, no one is trying to push me into the damn ditch cause " i got a car hahahaha" ( you slow down they do too FYI) i hate to say it, but placing them on a similar level to the prospect of sudden death seemed to put them back into a proper perspective.
