This happened to any of you?? Egging you on to race or something??? Was minding my own business and cruising in the fast lane down in the Gilroy, CA area on Hi 101. Doing about 80 when this Toyota Sienna (or similar type family van) comes up quickly to my rear bumper.
The dude then flashes his headlights and honks at me big time. Tells me to go faster, move over or something. What's most interesting was that we were the ONLY cars on the road at that time and as far as the eye could see.
Yep, the driver could have easily lane changed over and do his 90, 100, 110 or whatever speed his heart desired. Given the situation and the fact that I was in my active cruise control mode, chose not to move on and stay firm around 80-85. No such luck. Again, the driver of the van flashed me with the lights.
Did it a few more times, and again, no other drivers were anywhere in sight and again, all other lanes were easily available to him.
Finally, the dude got the message. He proceeded to lane change over to the right.
At about this point, I was really PO'f man. So, when he got up to my car doors, that's when I decided to take the car off my active cruise control mode and hit my throttle at speed. Always wanted to 'test' my new Dinan tuned wares on my E60 545i Sport anyway.
Dropped that poor bastard like he was sitting still. Could hear my Dinan CIA, free flow exhaust and hf throttle body, in concert with my Dinan lightweight wheels, do its thing. Talk about an exhilarating feeling.
What seens like a heartbeat, was doing well over 100+ and climbing. Was ready for a full tilt run to the limit at 155 or until I hit oncoming traffic, whatever came first. That's when this loser up and decided to completely GET OFF the highway by exiting the very first off-ramp after we took off at speed.
What an a** and moron man. Here you are minding your own business and losers like this want to make something of absolutely nothing. With Hi 101 completely opened, he could have easily taken any lane he wanted and cruise to his heart's content.
Perhaps I taught the dude a lesson here. Still, next time I'll just avoid such future run-ins and lane change first. After all, you know about road rage these days!!! Agree???
