This was around a little while ago. Story was just before the video started the car cut the biker off so (start of video) the biker kicks the cars door. Car then tries to cut the biker off and wrecks. Biker somehow escapes the wreck. Lucky dude.

Road rage is never good.

IIRC The Biker and the driver of the car were exchanging words and the person behind them decided to record it and that's what occurred.

Last I knew. the cops were still looking for the biker.

Ride one of these and the Cagers won't mess with you much if at all.

My rule of the road re: road rage:


1. I never pretend I can enforce my right-of-way when I am riding a two-wheel vehicle that is about 1/4 the weight of every other vehicle around me.

2. Just because someone is a jerk does not give me license to be a jerk. (Note that NFL refs almost always throw the unsportsmanlike conduct flat on the LAST guy who threw the punch, not the first.)

3. I am not likely to change how someone's parents raised him.

4. I NEVER ride angry. I am more in control of my bike and my life when I am willing g to walk away and not lower myself to every right that invites me.


 
The shortest distance between two points is boring.

Good points. Never ride angry. I must admit that I was angry before a ride and the ride soothed it. Not road rage related.
Here is the problem..........even if it is not your fault and you happen to get arrested or taken in by a cop that wants the prosecutor to make the final decision, you will be photographed and on the internet. Plain and simple. Even innocent. Happened to someone I know about a DUI he beat but Jailbirds and Mugshots each wanted something like $750 apiece to remove his name and he paid up. So even totally innocent or beating a charge will still land u in front of the entire world on a search. Thats the kicker. Much different years ago. Plus now we have video and even with a cell phone its going viral. Much easier for many to bite the proverbial bullet and walk away as much as that hurts. And it will hurt but not like being plastered across the globe on the net will.
