    They were riding like dicks, but wow, this was a bit of an extreme reaction (real drama begins at 2:00):



    "Okay, so a little bit of a back story. We are out riding and on the way to ride some trails off road. One of ours guys did get in the dirt for a min. Someone else came and said that he got it on camera. He went to the back of his vehicle and said he got his plates on camera too. The guy in the red truck didn't like what he'd seen apparently and started flipping the bird and trying to get a reaction from everyone in the group. I went to ask why they are flipping me and everyone off and this is what resulted of that. Stay safe out there everyone, you never know what kind of person you are going to be dealing with at the end of the day. I am thankful to be alive. That sounds crazy to say, I am glad the gun didn't go off. Even if it would have been an accident, because he clearly don't seem to know how to handle the weapon."

    I don't know what it is about people on bikes. They get together in a group and become total assholes. That doesn't absolve that asshole in the truck for pointing a gun at someone like he did.

    Agreed on both counts.

    I don't ride in a group after experiencing the idiocy first-hand a few times. Sure, I had some fun when we all rode the twisties here (back roads that are never busy), but these guys would do stupid shit that would put people in danger. What ended it for me was a guy in his 50's, doing a slow wheelie along the sidewalk at the front of a grocery store. If someone walked out of that door, his 400lb bike would have come down on them. No way did I want to be associated with those idiots in any way.

    I still ride often, but when I want to push it, I take it to the track. Laguna Seca and Buttonwillow are only a few hours away.

    In California, we cannot pass a bicyclist unless we can leave 3 feet between them and our cars. They now own those little roads. They pretty much are invincible now - by law, not physics.

    The biker was in the wrong, someone flips you off, you don't pursue him/them to discuss why. You don't touch their vehicle, you pull over, let them proceed and then go about your business. If the driver had shot, he would have argued that he felt threatened by a gang of riders (maybe successfully)

    When I ride, I'm very careful. My Harley has two wheels and weighs 850 pounds. In a confrentation with a car you will lose.
    I got hit by a 17 yearold kid driving his moms car in November. The kid got a reckless driving citation. I got two broken bones. I would never seek out trouble on my bike. If you ride, ride like you're as small and quite as a mouse. There are enough idiots out there to go around.

    Jeez. It was only the middle finger.
    It's not like someone took their reps away.

    I don't care what you are riding, never confront anyone. Stop and let them go, or drive to the nearest police station, fire station, or other location where others are.
