Agree and Disagree. I've swerved around/passed/cut between cars before. Perhaps closer than I should've. And the Car's driver is entitled to be mad sure...
but those cars have zero right to act in any way like this guy did. Swerving toward, crowding, or riding a bikes ass is out of the question no matter what that biker does. Because literally, in a car vs. bike situation, that car is seconds away from KILLING that person...
That being said-
No car driver is going to like how sport bikers ride sometimes. But as bikers, recognize that, and ever dont make a game out of trying to piss off cars, dont give them the chance to do what this guy did! The riders in that video should've put a ton of distance between them and that car at the first sign of trouble.
If I blow past cars, or swerve too close, or whatever they might not like, its because I'm haul ass'in, or trying to get by or whatever. These in the video were antagonizing, looking for a fight.
Dont ever hang around to try to get a reaction out of them! Be on your merry way, no car will be able to keep up!
