2. The dude on the bike was an idiot for riding that close behind the pissed off cager - he set himself up for the fall.
He was trying to act macho and threatening, guess he ate the sour soup himself.

Great title........did you actually look at all the pics I posted???

You probably looked as closely as you did at the "speedo" in the video

So are you a squid or a poser???

Watch this, compare the indicated speed to the apparent speed of Irenecanary on So. Grade, and let me know what you think.

I never understood why somebody who would whip a car, kick the mirror etc., just assumes that the car driver would back down. Whip the cage of a guy as macho and pissed off as the rider, and why wouldn't the cage driver just swerve into the bike and nerf him into the oncoming lane, or guardrail?

Or, someone carries while riding? Well I carry in my car. So that's not a clear win for the rider either.

Well, yeah, there is that..

Actually a new '79 CJ7 that wasn't generally abused, but that did climb some hills and drag logs up out of the woods.
