And what good does even that do? One, it let's the other guy know he got under your skin, and 2) can lead to further confrontation and potential ass-whipping. Kinda like laying on the horn in a car when someone cuts you off. It does nothing to "teach them that they were in the wrong", as they're already either oblivious or an ass or both.
Me, I don't like letting anyone know they get under my skin. I just ride my ride and let the assholes pass on by....

Great advice. And the more often you resist the urge to express yourself, the easier it gets to let things go by.

You post a video where "fuck" is spoken clearly several times, but can't bring yourself to write "shit"?

And your contour may not be a piece of shit gopro, but either it or your head is cocked about 15° too far CW.

looks like the classic falling asleep. drifting speeding up and slowing down to snap out of it.

And out of all of this, that bothers me the most! The OCD in me wants to rip that camera off his head and stomp it into a million pieces.

True about the GoPro. Because it would still show you were in the wrong.

Typical Harley rolling (barely) road block? Check.
Typical riding skill of said road block? Check.
Typical attitude towards anyone that does anything they deem wrong? Check.
Macho man reaction to the same skill of driver of Camaro? Priceless.
