Nope, everything I know about the incident is what was written.

Bikers are retarded . . there is not question about that for the most part just due to the awesomeness of the speed and power involved. I ride like that sometimes but I always signal so that's okay right?

I can too for situations that require such a resolution. however in the instance shown there is no reason you would need to try and kill someone.

This has been going on for decades, even if you ride in compliance with laws. I had a HD for 10 years, I could not count how many people deliberately try to run you off the road. That's why I quit riding, it was no longer fun thanks to the idjuts.

I don't ride, but I am definitely on the bikers side. The guy in the truck is a fucking idiot. You can tell what he was out to do as soon as he pulls out. The dumbass sat there and waited for the bikers then deliberately pulled out slow and continued to drive slow until he was passed. I'm sure he probably didn't go out with the intent to kill a biker, but he almost did. The guy in the truck is a stupid fucking hick period.

Don't know where you drive, but I have had a fat SOB on a Harley pass me on a blind curve with oncoming traffic and cut me off getting back into the right lane. I was driving a 3500 Dodge Ram towing a 32' fifth wheel and was doing 65 in a 55 already. The fucker about put me and my entire family in the ditch. I have NO respect for bikers that drive like that. Nor did I slow down to let him back over. He made the choice to be a dumbfuck, not me.

Bikers were going too fast and shouldn't have been. It should be up to the police to solve that problem. The cops chose to not ticket the bikers. NUFF said.
Truck driver deliberately tried to run the bike off the road. That is malicious and intended to hurt the biker. He then used excessive speed to attempt to catch the biker. What was he going to do if he caught him? Run him off the road again? He deserved to be prosecuted.

I'm on the side of the bikers and I have a strong dislike for alot of them. But not in this case.

agree. Both were in the wrong, but the bikers will jump to the side of the biker every time, which just shows how retarded and closedminded many of them can be.

I drive a Red Ford Pickup and I ride a bike,..I'm kinda on the fence on this one,.....

I agree with this guy, a minor traffic infraction is the exact same as attempted murder.

On another note. another wonderful day leaving work where all the "bikers" at work chop up the side of the line to turn onto southfield and pull out in front of everyone and then dealing with the little cocksuckers weaving in and out of traffic.. and then their "hand signals" are a fucking joke.. whip their hand out as they cut over in front of you.. Im sorry but bikes should obey just like fullsize vehicals and leave plenty of room for a lane change.. and the next time i see one of those little bastards cutting between the lanes in a traffic jam im gonna whip my door open..

Did you just bitch about using hand signals and properly signaling when they are changing lanes??

I believe he did.

McHatin, you telling me in Dearborn no 'full-size' vehicles ever changes lanes during rush hour without leaving proper distance? And they all signal prior to any lane changes? Wow, what an extremely polite city that is.



(and what the hell is chop up the side of the lane?????)

Pick up truck driver has a bad case of road rage. He wishes he had a rocket instead of the quad
