Yeah, the "surprising thing" is kind of dickish and out-of-character for me, but it apparently works.

I'm not sure what you mean about the natural human urges...territorialism, etc Are these urges of the cyclist, or the motorist? Unfortunately, I'd say they apply more to cyclists than the other way around.
