I don't understand why bikers get road rage, you have to assume no one sees you and look out for yourself, you're the vunerable one.

I frequently bump into a guy on my daily commute that rides a white 1200GS Adventure. The guy is a total knob!

He thinks it is his right to lanesplit and heaven help the cars that don't open like the sea before Moses if he is riding. I have seen him bang on windows and bonnets, rev his engine if a car doesn't hop the curve when he is in the vicinity and acts like a right old twatwaffle.

I am no angel on the roads but @#$% I can't see why people get so worked up on a bike. Car I get.... good gawd I can get frustrated in a car but a bike?! If you encounter a asshole, go around him and go on with your day.

Slightly off topic - My GOOD Buddy posted on Facebook last night

He was involved in a Taxi indecent , where he was cut-off

He follows the Guy to the next robot and jumps out of his car to go tell the Guy he is a F P**S

SO black guy jumps out with a KNIFE and chases my Buddy across the robot.

In his attempt to Flee he RIPS his Achilles in left foot and tears tendons in right knee


WHAT THE FARK my buddy were you thinking

Now he wants to track the guy down and SUE him - Double WTF

THIS is a True Story

Feel sorry he got hurt - But he could have gotten stabbed

We react to quickly



Fok that must have been funny!!!!

rev his engine if a car doesn't hop the curve

 :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

That is like revving a naaimasjien. Even with complete exhaust removed those boxers don't make much of a noise.
The cars behind him might hear him but not the ones in front.

Fuck, that cop's bulletproof has seen better days.

And our cops are expected to perform their duties in a hostile country with equipment that will clearly fail.

I GAVE away my gun years ago for fear of ever getting myself into a situation where I might do something I regret later as I had a very short temper then ....... Not saying applicable to this situation or other people who own guns, just my situation!

Also got rid of the guns I inherited. My temper and firearms should be kept far appart.

I am eagerly awaiting the facts. Sad loss of life indeed

I suppose it is also a real reminder that one should maybe just "smile and wave" in kak situations.
You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.

Eish, die's 'n fokkop.

Looking forward to hearing the whole story. It sounds like there's a decent chance that some overdue natural selection took place.

I hope for the cagers sake the biker was not a member of the MACs.

And that is the exact stereo typical reason why the general public fear "bikers"  The whole perceived wild,violent biker club image.

This incident is sadly not unique and probably happens far more frequently than reported world wide

Some insist on the failure of their equipment!

If that's the guy then there are photos of a young girl who is never going to see her father again. Very sad.

I read a RIP with his name on FB and saw the bike on his profile - maybe coincidence, but I doubt it
