I'm sure the BMW guy is telling everybody how he kept you behind him the whole time.
That was my thought too, if he/she/it is/has even mentioned it to anyone.

Truth be told, you really want thier attention, you gotta pull that nasty pass where you zip by at way faster than they can go through the corner, then chop in so close that they almost smear the paint off your rear bumper.

THAT will get thier attention and quite thoroughly make whatever point.

Granted it's rude as all get out, and not neccisarily the right thing to do in any number of books/rules/morality stories, but sometimes one has to assert ones authority in a severely aggressive fashion. (besides, if you can make them spike thier brake out of fear, then you've got that one-up moment to talk about for years to come....)





Did I mention I hate everyone out on the roads and think they are all worthless bits of dog turd that should be laying out in the yard as opposed to driving on my routes?

Thanks for the memory flash bianchi. I grew up in Fairfield and know that road well. Waaaay back in HS I made 'bout the same run in a MGA... Probably why I ended up with a Duetto after college.....

Better be faster than a bear bottle when you have asserted ones authority. :D
Bottles don't generally scare me.

Glass pitchers on the other hand can mangle a person.
