That guy was very, very lucky. The SUV could have made his day much worse very quickly.


In a 4 wheels vs 2 wheels battle, 4 wheels always prevails.

How true. Both were in the wrong.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I cringe every time I see one of these videos. First, because of the accident that could have happened with dire results. Second, because, once again, people will look at this on social media and get their stereotypical image of a biker as an out of control, violent a**hole reinforced...and we all get painted with that broad brush. Both drivers were wrong, but the biker made the whole thing worse by acting on his rage. Why do some bikers think it's OK to physically assault a car that has done them wrong? In the world of physics, they will always lose, period. You rarely, if ever, see two motorists in cars bashing away at each with their vehicle as a result of some driving idiocy. (Except in CA where they just pull out a gun and shot at you).

Calm down people! The world is stressful enough as it is and life is too short to take offense and react to every incident. Relax and worry about the things you have control over...which ain't much...and live to ride another day.

PS: So much for the view of all Canadians being friendly, courteous and polite.

It is Canada. He might've just been attaching a strongly worded apology to the suv.
