Now this doesn't apply to those who don't do dumb shit. But this morning I had some idiot in a big utility truck complete with cherry picker just cruising along side me.

Harley rider behind me, I see him nearly every morning. Long blond poney tail down to his lower back,  stupid useless thin helmet on a red Harley with saddle bags...but hard not the soft leather ones, fiberglass, maybe they have A different name? Anyway, between my drivers side mirror and the big ass mirror on the truck, I know there couldn't have been much room for this big motorcycle with fairly decent sized rider, but he decides to split the lanes.

All I can think is "you're fucking retarded!" I give a quick honk to his stupidity and I see a tan leather work glove rise with the middle finger standing tall. Splitting lanes is illegal in Georgia btw.

Oh he must think I'm the ass hole for honking at him being a fucking idiot?  Do these retards not realize if he fucks up, it's not going to bother me in my beater 1996 Honda, but he's going to have a real bad day, if not lethal.

Were his pipes loud?

I didn't think he was actually stupid enough to do it. It's like they either don't care, or think they can avoid anything.

Actually stock pipes which aren't loud at all. Which is why I previously didn't think he was retarded as he apparently is.

I ride everyday, not on a Harley. Your implication that most Harley riders do stupid things similar to this is not my experience. Most of the time I see the young sport bike riders doing shit like that.

ANY Harley rider that lane splits must be an decent rider, I would give him a pass (no pun intended)

They're called panniers, and idk how people lane split with them on. It's hard enough without them some times on my skinny Thruxton R, let alone an enormous Harley with panniers.

Call the police next time OP. Make sure to mention the obscene gesture, GA probably has a law against that too. Make sure you hang around to file a full report. Justice must be done.

Split on all my bikes (in traffic at a reasonable speed).  Admittingly, my GSA loaded with gear and the wife has the occasional pucker.  Gotta say I've never had anyone blow their horn.  If anything, they give a little room.

Thruxton R...took one out a couple months out.  Sweet bike!

A lot of times people do this without realizing it.  Especially when they're dicking around with their cell phones.

The people who are the worst are the ones who sit right on the semis ass for miles, but then decide to pass right as I'm changing lanes to pass them.  Right behind them are the people who put the lead foot down with no cars around, then slow to a crawl to pass anybody.

At least OP honked his horn, so he confirmed his "concerned" stereotype and has now completed his destiny as a concerned blocker of the road.

I do lane splitting on log jammed freeways.  Getting rear-ended is not pretty for a motorcyclist, and on log jams, that's where it typical happens.   

Maybe control your rage and get one yourself rather than be frustrated while sitting in traffic that's not flowing?

Being on a sportbike goads Harley riders into taking risks too.  It's rare that a Harley rider won't "try" and overtake you.

When somebody says they've never seen something happen that commonly happens, I just assume they don't ride that much.  Spends more time polishing and tinkering than riding.

Pretty much anybody on any other motorcycle is going to try to turn up the heat on you.  Even guys on dirt bikes.  It's a jungle out there.

You know what they say about assumptions. Between Colorado, Sturgis, and Hopkinsville KY in the past three weeks, that was 7000 miles. In the last year, I've put 40K miles on my two bikes. Maybe I just need to get out more.
