There are a couple of moments that are just plain STUPID by the bikers involved here.

There was clearly a pattern when this cager is TRYING to hit the bikers, but yet, one of the bikers is going to drive NEXT to the car; what the hell was he thinking?!?!?

What's not clear at the end of the clip, is there appears to be the sound of a Police siren, but with all the bikers headlights, I could not tell if there was any Police flashing lights.

What was the outcome of all this?
Did a cop show up and arrest this driver?
Did the bikers end up beating the shyt out of this driver?

I don't ride a sport bike on the street any more. But, if I did, I would be a regular visitor to pawn shops, buying old rusty big-ass box wrenches that fit in a left back pants pocket, that would end up through the windshield of any drivers like that.
Had gotten the idea years ago, from a 1%'er, when I used to ride Harley's. Had asked him why he had such a huge wrench in his back pocket, which he replied, "When someone is riding behind me a bit too close, I just pull it out of my pocket with my my left hand, hold it up in the air with a waving backward motion, while staying on the gas!", and the driver get the hint about 90% of the time.

Be careful out there guys, but please be smart, and don't be a Squid ass, that infuriates cagers to these degrees. Don't forget too, cagers driving a PoS car like that, generally won't have a good "care" about things.

Sickening to be grouped up with those douche bags. If they crashed it would've been well deserved.

Seems like problem was 50% squidleys and 50% cager. Not 100% sure, but it appeared that squids were egging on the cager, but still doesn't justify trying to run them off the road. Anyone with common sense should know that a 450lb bike is no match for a 2000lb car...no matter how superior your m/c riding skills are. These guys should have backed off after the initial attempt, grabbed the license plate and called in to the police. There's obviously video of attempted vehicular manslaughter, which would have sealed a case against this idiot cager.

All people in this video are morons. When idiot drivers do dumb stuff, I choose to get the heck out of there. There is no way that crap box of a car could keep up with a liter bike. There is no way I am going to ride next to a car on the freeway and ask for them to hit me.

My thoughts exactly. I couldn't understand why the bikes were still anywhere near that car. Leave it behind or slow down, take the next exit, and have a smoke or something.

Your comment about the wrench brought back memories. I have a good friend whose father was a Boozefighter, and he said he'd keep a marbles or ball bearings with him. According to him a handful could damage a radiator, head lights, windshield, hood, etc.

We have BoozeFighter's here in Texas too.
Ball bearings are an alternative, but not practical for us on sport bikes. A wrench being nice and flat, fits in a back pocket. You'd need saddle bags for large ball bearings to be 'portable and accessible in the moment'.

I'm with n7hevn and BryGuy on this, why the hell would you CONTINUALLY ride up next to, or ANYWHERE NEAR the car for that matter, when he/she has already tried to run you off the road and get you to run up the arse of you a few times?!?!? It only takes one instance to get a conviction, not 10, why endanger yourself further by provoking the driver more?

Squid-ing aside, these guys were dicks in how they reacted after the initial instance, doesn't take much to go WOT for 10 seconds and lose the idiot, or just pull over and let them go!

Wish it was a helmet (assuming the idiots were wearing one) cam to see the confrontation at the end and to see if the cops turned up....
