Not to discount that BWM is a nut who needs locked up, but you can't instigate shit on a bike and then take your sweet time moving out at the green light and then keep dragging ass as you ride down the road in the left lane just to be a dick. You're gonna get run over if you do it in front of some of these unstable people we have driving around out there.

It's scary that car driver comments reveal that they consider filtering distracting and/or dangerous to them, and then use it as an excuse to recklessly endanger others with their own vehicle. These people are fiddling with radios, phones, food, etc. And the motorcycle passing them at idle speed while they are stopped is too distracting? And it's a legitimate danger to them?

Can we please get some education in the driver's ed classes? Mandatory motorcycle orientation video. Show a few videos of drivers sandwiching motorcycles at red lights and explain, "This is why they filter, so they won't get smashed between 4000 lbs of steel. Don't get pissy about it." Do that for a generation or two, and we might have a hope...

1st the biker is stupid to try to hold up someone he just yelled at. But he did not deserve to be hit.

2nd if cagers are allowed to use their cars as weapons then I should be allowed to carry a gun everywhere to defend myself against this terror! You try to kill me with 4000 lbs of steel I am gonna send some lead your way!

Side story. I just had some asshat try to turn left infront of me while I am making a left of a major road in DC. Fucker yelled at me like its my fault for being on a motorcycle and in his way. If he had hit me I am sure the cops would side with him saying I was doing something stupid, since cops don't care about bikers either. But I had video of it all and called his company to complain about his driving. Rock the camera at a all times people.

The proper way to handle being cut-off of course.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527
