You mean, don't do that without 50 cool guys riding in formation with you, presumably.

yeah I was kinda drunk when making that comment, was wondering why he didn't pull over. On second look I would have wanted to attack that red car. Sorry dude for saying you were in the wrong

What an awful road. Narrow, potholes, traffic volume. Yuck.

That guy was an a$$hole. I'm lucky in that my roads around here in Florida are generally very nice, but I have cycled in other states and know how sh*tty it is to ride on horrible roads like that. You handled the situation very well.

I would not have treated it like comedy, especially after years of dealing with Dick and Jane Rushhourwolfpack. I also saw a couple of good opportunities for you to move to the right, let the obnoxious motorist slide by and say good riddance to the SOB.
