Farkit this is NOT how you start your weekend !!

The good head shake always shows the Cager that you are disappointed in their action greater power than confrontation.

yeah based in what info we have it hasnt been said that the cager was shot just injured.

6.raged biker approached cage to shout the odds, donners stikkend cager then shoots raged biker

anyway its a horrible waste of life and totally unnecessary, for what? assuming a collision then a couple grand. if not a collision then what a total waste and display of recklessness. shooting in public?

you just don't see guys jumping off their super bikes willy nilly.

You'd be surprised.
:(

Add self-entitlement to a moerse temper, add a god complex and a Glock, put it on a bike and cut it off in traffic and maybe give it the bird and see what happens.

:(


By stopping and approaching the car the biker was the one that escalated the argument to the point where a person got killed.

He was on a bike and could lane split away from the car if he wanted to.

Road rage is not worth it. just shake your head and get out of the situation.

Agree 100%

I'll also add to that - don't even break a mirror. The guy who's got his mirror broken might also just have a 9mm handy

This is so so sad.

seems like a Mexican standoff type incident, why would the biker confront the cager with a gun, silly

Very sad!

I learned this lesson the hard way - smile and wave!  Its just not worth all the hassle becoming self righteous in traffic.

Also once you decide to be generous and just show the other guy some kindness, the whole nasty cycle just unravels and you arrive at your destination a lot less stressed, and maybe so do they! Although some people seem to become enraged even when you try and accommodate them  ::)

But we don't really know what happened here, nor whether it was even road rage?

This is why I dont carry a weapon.
I dont react like I used to in traffic anymore, I generally laugh it off now, and live to see
another day, but there was a time that this could have been me.
Its just not worth it, you never know what the other guy's frame of mind
is, and and whether or not he's armed.
Regardless of who's as fault its a tragic and unnecessary loss of life.

At least he did not drop the bike.

None of us know what really happened after the biker stopped, we do not know whether both parties fired shots, or do we?

But, the biker made himself the aggressor and a target when he stopped instead of riding on.

Never worth it, just ride away.

There are no winners in this scenario.

I have a feeling that there is more to this than just road rage.

Nonetheless sad situation.

Which plays directly into my theory of him possibly having had a god complex.

Edit - not making a judgement as we don't have enough facts

Motorist is badly wounded and was taken to hospital
who shot who then? i understood the biker got shot?

Biker wounded the motorist, motorist fired back. That's what I can pick up from twitter

94.7 says the motorist is criticle ....... facts will be interesting ...

Nonetheless sad situation.
It is strange how things in this country often turn out to be a family murder after everybody else thought it was just criminal murder. But this one will be interresting.
That's the nice thing about court cases, the truth (mostly) comes out.
