Overtaking a line of traffic on national speed limit road. Not enough room for the full lot, so pull in behind lead car.

As Im backing off to make more room he swerves into the oncoming lane and trys to "wash" me Laughing Laughing Laughing

Total none-event, but still mildly amusing, especially as after I do overtake him (slightly faster than maybe I should because wanted to) theres a rozzer parked up after I wave bye at him Smile

Anyway, if you are bored.

I was obviously secretly hoping he would clip that van that was coming up fast.

Be careful what you wish for. If he had you may well have splatted into the back of him.

Sees bike all of a sudden, entire focus is now on rear view mirror waiting for your overtake, wanders out of lane. I don't know why they do it. The Mini at the back did another annoying classic, the braking response. I've aborted overtakes before thinking the driver has either seen a hazard or is going to make some kind of manoeuvre, but no, he's just seen a bike and for some reason dabs the brake.

My sister in law says she panics when she sees a bike behind her. She can never explain why. 🙄

My first instinct was that they hadn't seen you, and that their crumby driving had nothing to do with you. But, I think as already mentioned that panic is a likely explanation.

I like your camera set up, you seem to have a better sound balance than I ever manage too.

I think panic - followed by anger at being “made” to panic. 👍

Tar, it’s quite useful that there’s a SENA app, I can adjust settings from my phone on the go 👍
