Squids and Natural Selection
Too many times the same scene plays out. I live in Southern California and ride 70% of the time to about 30% as a cager. Today I was caging it in the South Bay with the kids in the car. As I got onto the freeway, a Yamaha R6 passed me on the right on the onramp and started the "Squid" moves most cagers hate about us riders. He then zigged and zagged through all four lanes of traffic thinking he was a "Real" road rider. I just got into the carpool lane and forgot about him. Miles later, "Squidboy" is now behind me in the carpool lane still picking what he thinks are the best lines. As the carpool lane ends and merges to the left, he passes me halfway and almost gets pinched between two cars merging. Being a rider and aware of him behind me, I still had a problem keeping an eye on where he was going. He was all over the place just looking for open holes where a bike would fit. Why do these idiots even ride. I wouldn't wish harm on any rider, but I feel safe this bonehead will be a statistic before me. I feel for the cagers sometimes.
