One day I was out riding on a country road no one behind me and just a Hilux in front of me I got up behind the HL not right up to him but had a safe space but for some unknown reason the driver didn't like me there, I was minding my own business when all of a sudden he locked up his brakes, no one in front of him and no reason at all for locking up his brakes, lucky I was paying attention and was able to avoid him, his wife beside him was going of her head in what he had done, I decided to get past him but I did give it to him as I went past him, but I think he was in more troubles from his wife as she was still getting up him, this was at highway speed 100kmph, I just opened the Thruxton up and got well away from the fool.
But it does make you wonder why people do stupid things like that, what is going through their heads at the time, I wasn't tail gating him at all, in my younger days I would have kicked the sh.t out of his door, but I think he got punished enough from his wife screaming at him.
