View Full Version : Riding Angry?

Hi All,

Just wondering what you all do when you ride your bike when your super mad? Do you ride normal, do you ride aggresive? Do you ride like #yolo?

Just curious to know how other people feel about it.

I ride more aggressively but I think for all intents and purposes I am a much better rider when I'm angry, because half my problem is that I lack confidence. When I'm angry I'm less inclined to fall 'victim' to that lack of confidence because I'm too busy being angry and not giving a fuck. My cornering shows a huge improvement when I ride in a bad mood, but at the same time I'm an impulsive person and I know riding angry falls within a dangerzone for me, so I try not to do it if I can help it.

brb, going to find out.

edit: if you ride like a tard when you're angry, the best thing to do is not tell people about it.

don't be the faggot that tells his/her other half "OH YOU MADE ME SO ANGRY I'M GOING TO RIDE THE BIKE LIKE AN IDIOT".

30 seconds on the bike and my anger goes away.

But yes, I do ride a little more aggressive when angry.

Riding angry is bad mm'kay.
Calm and alert is what i strive for.

Don't get mad, get even.

I am with AWSE but if I am that mad I dont ride as you dont think clearly

22-11-2012, 09:38 AM
I don't really have an in between angry, im ither cool or flat out fucked off. So I don't ride angry.
Consiously knowing I have anger issues I make habit of 'walking it off' as I'm usually not crazy mad for long.
Then I ride.

^_^Once I'm on my bike the anger melts away....^_^

22-11-2012, 10:07 AM
When i'm angry, i go and do some wheelies.

22-11-2012, 10:09 AM
Can't even remember the last time in life that I was 'super mad', never mind riding like that.

TBH if I was 'super mad' I wouldn't get on the bike otherwise it's very likely I'm going to end up 'super crashed' and maybe 'super dead' coz I aint 'Superman'.

I dont ride when angry, done it and paid the price...... Agree with TBone on this, you dont think clearly when angry and have a tendancy to do things that will raise your risk of binning your shit.

I'd be angry too if I had to ride a GSXR750 with a busted frame.

22-11-2012, 10:18 AM
My riding style never changes cause I'm always angry.

Be angry for just having to ride a Gsxr!

If you get on the bike angry...get the fuck off it. Go inside, grope the missus and tell her you need to let of some steam before you go for a ride.

Go back out to the bike, get on...note the extra room between you and the tank. :)
Now ride.

Hi All,

I hate it when people use the term yolo.

22-11-2012, 11:05 AM
Generally i don't.

Last time I did, i binned it, in a stupid lowside on wet limestone - that i'd been riding through no problem twice per day for a month.

22-11-2012, 11:10 AM
I try to use the full quota of emotions when I ride.

22-11-2012, 11:22 AM
Drive angry was a great movie, ride angry could also be a great movie, but it is something I try never to do, sometimes it is hard to stay cool when you get cutoff but it is wise to stay calm,

I don't get on the bike angry, I never let my emotions affect my riding well I try not to,
if I'm angry in a few moments on my Milwaukee tractor it has me happy
Brings me too much pleasure for me to be angry on my bike.

22-11-2012, 11:24 AM
I'm usually ridin dirty.. but they tryna catch me so I stopped.

Be angry for just having to ride a Gsxr!

Have you ridden one before ?

22-11-2012, 11:35 AM
I've known plenty of people that ride angry... Shortly afterwards they don't ride again for months...

22-11-2012, 11:48 AM
I don't get angry.

22-11-2012, 11:57 AM
What's Yolo?

22-11-2012, 11:59 AM
You only live once

22-11-2012, 12:01 PM
You only like oral.

This is YOLO:

Riding agrressively is fine, riding agressively because you're angry seems silly (and demonstrates a lack a self control - which is a nice thing to have as motorcyclist.. and when replying to posts!).

22-11-2012, 12:32 PM
Have you ridden one before ?

I certainly have and I loved it, I was just putting some humor in ;)

22-11-2012, 12:44 PM
I certainly have and I loved it, I was just putting some humor in ;)

Im glad you liked it :) Certainly a difference in riding position between the 2 isnt there ?

Takes me so long to get all the gear on by the time I get the helmet on then realize I forgot the earplugs, unlock bike chain yada yada yada that I've forgotten what I was angry about by the end of the driveway.

More likely to abuse the car!!!

22-11-2012, 01:39 PM
I used to ride angry years ago, and was very aggressive with the bike when i did, but found using aggression on an older ZX10R while chasing guys like TurboR1 made me realise it isn't faster, smart or likely to end well. So i got a 600 and was promptly removed of driving licence. :)
Now i still ride angry from time to time, but i ride slow and purposeful when i do. The anger goes away much quicker...

22-11-2012, 02:04 PM
I find the routine of gearing up for a ride calming as well
My bike likes to be ridden calmly :-)

Go home, sit down, come up with the stupidest shit possible and post it on PSB.

For yourself, you should get into freestyle motocross stuff. It would be extremely beneficial for you. Trust me.


24-11-2012, 09:04 AM
i dont get angry, never have really. i'm to laid back if something doesnt go right or goes wrong in my life i may get a bit down for a few hours or a day then pretty much come to the conclusion "oh well nothing can do about it now" sort it out and i'm all good again.

24-11-2012, 10:33 AM
the hardest thing to remember is not to scream past a tin top after it has done something stupid in front of you ,because you only find another stupid tin top really quickly

24-11-2012, 11:17 AM
I've ridden when I was properly angry, only once before...

I set a lap time on a bent bike I didn't beat for about 18 months :lol:
(disclaimer: I don't condone this behavior. I was seeing red, and very much could have damaged my Shit/self or someone else. Road riding increases that chance)

24-11-2012, 11:20 AM
Riding angry = bad idea, you need to be alert and not distracted by erratic emotions. I've started off angry, realised I've pulled off like a nong, stopped and waited until calm so that I'm not a danger to myself or others.

Being overly emotional while in charge of any vehicle is not a good idea.

that video is gold.

24-11-2012, 11:25 AM
Poor angry

24-11-2012, 11:42 AM
I only get angry for a second or two, so I wouldnt know.

I was told to ride defencively. Also being told that the best defence is offence.

I now try to ride as offensively as possible.

This is YOLO:


for posterity.

I remember that YOLO article about those negra gangstas hooning around the streets in their car at 150km/h drunk as hell tweeting YOLO!.... then they crashed and died.
