Getting all pissed off=Bad idea.
Thinking you're going to do something about it=Even badder idea.
Riding along side, yelling at driver while shaking fist? =Asking for it.

Definitely no excuse for the car driver, but the guy on the bike was an idiot. Never pick fights with a car while you're on a bike.

Also...

Can we just go ahead and award this line with "understatement of the year"? He didn't "veer into his lane" and "knock" him off his motorcycle. He rammed the guy at full force in a deliberate attempt to kill him.

I usually just let them know that they're number 1 in my opinion and move on with life.

Seems the biker in this case has a habit of finding trouble.

Probably true. Still doesn't mean he deserved to be run over like a dog. If he'd have gotten his arse whipped I'd have thought it was funny, but that was a bit beyond.

I’d love to see what led up to just before this piece of video. Obviously something occurred to piss the biker off. Not saying that the car wasn’t at fault...Trying to hit the motorcycle was absolutely attempted murder and the driver needs to be found and prosecuted, then sued by the motorcyclist.

This whole incident shows the stupidity of bike versus car road rage. The biker loses every time. It’s as simple as the laws of physics. I try to give cagers a wide berth, assume they don’t see me and act like everyone is out to kill me. Trying to avoid an incedent is the best practice in my book.



Dying of natural causes is for Wimps!

Tempers create stupidity. Keep it under check and live to vent when you're out of harms way.
