Riding the motorbike can be dangerous

On the way through the city today I was travelling down the freeway when a black Range Rover in the inside lane decided it wanted to be in my lane. I was about square with the rear door when she started to move over without indicating. I honked the horn, she looked and rapidly moved back and I waved to her. I hope she understood that I was happy to still be alive and riding my bike!
About 60 seconds later I was braking hard behind a truck that had locked up its rear wheels braking hard. There was a traffic snarl on the freeway near the airport interchange.
Its good to have eyes and ears that see and hear and the ability to negotiate traffic. I am glad to be alive today!
