One mate had a well dressed gent in a black Mercedes do his best to put him repeatedly into the gutter during peak hour traffic. Mate finally rode up the footpath and dodged pedestrians to get away from him... this in the main centtre of Adelaide... North Terrace to be axact!
Sounds like riding in Sydney- I've had a woman try to deliberately put me into a concrete wall twice, people in cars just driving at you 'cause they know you're the one who's going to come off worst, people moving into my lane although they know I'm there and then tell me I shouldn't be there etc, etc... And then people complain about bikes splitting lanes in an effort to get away from them!
