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.
Ding! Ding!

We have a winner!
Mods, close thread please.

So he saw the lane split a bit too late. So what? Happens to everyone some time, that one isn't all that attentive.

Nothing dangerous after that. What's the problem? He using a part of the road you weren't using? Happens all the time, why bother?

Over react much? If I chased down and yelled at every moran that encroached on my lane I would never get any where!

There's a proliferation of these kind of videos in the UK at the moment, usually from cyclists rather than bikers, usually the format is the same though bikers/ cyclist feel aggrieved at some perceived slight or poor driving from a motorist.
My usual reaction is the same .the shitty GoPro ( other shitty cameras are available) are not a shield of invincibility ..it's up to the rider to ride smarter.

This is what happens sometimes.

The engraving patterns in the video starting at 0:36 or so made me warm inside.

in defense of riding on highways, sometimes they are a necessary evil just to get to hell outta Dodge

I also find that crossing a major rivers usually involves either getting on a highway or riding thru an urban environment

Other times, the highway is the only practical way to go thru urban areas

that portion of the ride may not be fun but the ride is even less fun if you don't first get to the good riding, personally, I would never live where highway riding is routine day to day occurance

True, but there's no reason to shoot video of that boring ass riding now is there?

Reminds me of a lower back tattoo.

Maybe tramp stamping your 'tube videos is the new thing?
