      Idk, the guys on the bikes aren't helpin the situation. Should have got in the fast lane and taken off. Flight over fight when you're talkin about a maniac using a ton of steel as a weapon.

      That's for darn sure. It's not apparent from the video what happened before the start of the video, either.

      I cannot understand why any of those riders didn't simply whack the throttle and leave the vicinity.

      Yeah. I definitely don't condone the driver's actions, but they sure spent a long time dicking around with this guy. There were a couple edits in there, so who knows how long they were "poking the bear."

      Wow. Dude got side swiped and still chases the car. What a idiot.

      I can understand being pissed but what were they gonna do traveling 70-90 mph..

      One reason why I dont ride with other sport bikes... But I can say I know a few folks that would have killed that guy in the Ford. Once he stopped.


      Eff that noise.

      Idiot kids were asking for it.

      I've been riding motorcycles on the street for 20+ years. **** like this doesn't just happen if you are riding along in a responsible normal (tame) behavior.

      It CAN happen, actually... There was a bitch here locally that was trying to run any motorcycle she came across off the road about two years ago.

      You could be bopping along in the right lane, all by yourself, doing the speed limit, she'd blast up beside you and try to merge over.

      ...and why would she do that, unless she was at one time in the past pissed off at idiots like this racing around and taunting her.

      But she took it out, if true, on random riders. So you yourself can be a safe, tame rider but still have people threaten you.

      Didn't watch the whole video. Stopped at the point where the camera pulls right back up beside the idiot in the car.

      It takes two to tango, why didn't they just leave?

      I wouldn't be sticking around to get swerved at after the first time. A nice hand gesture and take off.

      Granted the bikers probably did something before this video, but man, someone hits me like that or sideswipes me, I wouldn't trust myself being civil if I knew they did it on purpose.

      Yes it does. 18 years in the saddle here. Responsible rider riding a responsible non-sport bike with factory exhaust and next to zero squidage. Had an ass-hat do this very thing to me merging on an on-ramp on my local super-slab just a few weeks ago. He absolutely ****ing had to be ahead of me and wasn't into the one of you, one of us merge plan.

      Solution is clear: head for the shoulder, come to a complete stop and give it a 10 count. Maybe take the opportunity switch play lists on the player or stations on pandora. Merge back into traffic and move on with life.

      Playing with these people is utterly not worth the risk as there simply is no reward.

      Roll over, play dead, admit defeat, let them win, move on. Realize these POS'es are horrible, wretched, depressing people with nothing better to do than be dicks. Feel content you are a better person and will live to ride another day.
