Last winter I was on the way into Seattle, 520 to I5S in my Dakota. I had just merged onto I 5 in heavy traffic when a grimy GSA passed me on the left. He tried to merge a couple of cars ahead of me but the Lexus SUV driver ahead of me in the lane sped up to close the gap. The GSA looked back, as if to say WTF and then gassed it on the left shoulder and merged a car ahead. A few hundred yards later the GSA merged into the middle lane, as did the Lexus and I, but the Lexus sped up, pulled partly into the right lane and then merged back to the left causing the GSA to veer quickly to avoid a collision. The Lexus pulled alongside the motorcycle and started easing to the left. The GSA had no room to the left, was blowing his horn and waving. I pulled into the right lane alongside the Lexus and blew my horn, and the male driver was startled enough to lose focus on the bike. I yelled, "Knock it off, as$hole!" and the GSA took the second or two he had to zoom away. I rode alongside the Lexus long enough to be sure he had given up on the harassment. There are a lot of cool drivers and bikers in Seattle... and a lot of sanctimonious jerks. I include the squids I've seen riding wheelies at 80 mph plus in the HOV lanes on 405, with their helmets, tank tops, cargo shorts, and sandals.
