I don't care what the cops do to him, I was just too pleased to see him fall & stare at me in a complete daze. He definitely deserved more, compared to what he tried to do to me. It's scary when you are inches away from a concrete divider & have no where else to run.

The part where he landed on the ground was probably the best!! I still can't understand why such characters try to threaten another person's life, all for the sake of racing. An to top it off, and attitude that makes him raise his hand 1st.

For technical purposes.. another seasoned moron/maniac!!

meeting a good cop, makes up for the other bad person.

mb jg,
Good job done on teaching the moron a lesson to respect fellow human beings!
Just out of curiosity, were you driving your bike on the Right lane (speed lane) slowly which made him cut you across? I have seen that very often in Bangalore on Highways and Ring roads. They actually slow the traffic down due to this and force the cars to do unnecessary lane cutting/ changing. I do get irritated when two wheelers and 3 wheelers drive slowly when they can drive on the L side. Hope you were not doing this to make the SUV driver wild.

Good job?

Boss. Trying something like this in Delhi may be injurious to your health. It takes a bigger man to swallow it in the moment, and maybe toss a stone through the windshield after a month

You never know if he has friends, or notes down your number and pays a visit later. Unless you saw the police and then decided to escalate matters, I'd say thank your lucky stars - road rage is unpredictable.

I hear you, I experience it myself when am driving. But I follow traffic rules & lane driving for the sake of others & me. I do not cut lanes even if I have a slow rider infront of me, i honk for him to change lanes & proceed. I was in the right lane & was not slow, that particular stretch is approx 300mtrs odd before the next signal, I must've been in 2nd gear doing 50-55kmph before I could start braking for the signal ahead. This moron was on my left on the previous signal & he stuck there. He was acting like an overgrown baby saying "chal, dhoom bhai race laga" !!! I smiled & ignored him.
Other bikers must've surely experienced this, specially when you approaching a red light & need to stop where you tend to twist the throttle twice before downshifting to neutral only for the sake of a smoother gear shift. Other bikers get this sudden JOSH of racing you for no apparent reason. Many rev their bikes just for the heck of it, some suddenly get this heavenly urge to zip even if they did not intend to do in the first place hadn't they seen a bigger faster bike. Last Saturday I had a biker on a pulsar who passed us & did a wheelie, we could see he was riding normal before he saw us.

I totally agree with u dude.Whenever driving at reclamation here in mumbai people are just waiting to race with u.Anyone driving fast at reclamation is seen as a probably racer and raced with.My friend has a free flowed baleno and people just dont leave him alone and always want to get into a race with him.

Senseless stuff... Was the person the driver of the vehicle or the owner?

Then I dont think u have anything to fear, in terms of repercussions.

Also, this incident again reinforces the opinion (albeit stereo-typed) I have about Scorpio drivers.

First of all Kudo's mb_jg. Some of these retards will only cease after they learn a lesson the hard way and after being embarassed in public.

If I were you, I would do the same thing and being in bangalore all my life I wouldnt think twice if some moron had to provoke me by doing such thing.

Wondering why MOST of the SCORPIOS are driven RASHLY.
Well don't beat me up for that statement. but that's what i see everyday in Bangalore...and i also said "MOST".

I used to like the SCORPIO but then i saw people driving it around like rowdies. Almost all of them didn't care for the other human being outside his vehicle. So, i started associating SCORPIO with bad drivers. I even told one of the scorpio dealers in Bangalore to teach them to drive DECENTLY before handing over the vehicle.

Even automagazines trumpet about the scorpio's ability to make others give way. What's with these idiots writing such stuff in magazines which are supposed to promote good driving?

Does a scorpio driver consider others small? I don't know. You tell me.

Two very good points. And something to think about.
