The guy driving the car seems to have some mental issues. I also wholeheartedly agree about being careful with a passenger on the bike. You cannot maneuver nearly as well with someone on the back.

The car driver is an asshole, if that was me on the bike and I was able to stand up after the crash, I would have removed the redneck POS head out of the car driver
Many of us would pay to see that by the way...I imagine a full auto Uzi in your hand waving it like the mad man you are!

Naah,

You need to do it slowly with your bare hands, :-)

First more pleasure

Second avoid the libtards excuse to try to chase guns

Depends on the passenger. I dated a girl a few years back that rode so well I had almost forgotten I had a passenger.

Then there are those that move around or don't move with you that can actually influence the bike movement.

Kind of obvious comment comrade Jason, but cars are more dangerous and far more common than guns and this clip is proof that intentional malice with vehicles exists. People commit suicide with vehicles and take others with them and unless they leave a note its chalked up to lost control etc...
If they use a gun everyone jumps on a soap box. The issue is mental illness/twisted values, not guns.

It's amazing Jake and Elwood didn't take out a mass of people on their shopping spree.

I definitely agree it is a mental issue. We just got off on a tangent about the guns. There are many different ways to kill people.

The car killing example just happened in Phoenix a couple days ago.

When I was commuting daily this kind of behavior from cars was frequent. Many a time they'd change lanes right into me, even with me waving and laying on the horn. They just kept on coming. Or there's the classic no-signal u-turn. The inexplicable stop, the pull out into traffic from the curb, the tailgaters, and the I-hate-bikers. The worst is the no signal left turn right in front of you from the opposite travel lane. That one kills folks regularly.
Now that my riding days are behind me I don't really miss the stress of having to be at DEFCON 4 every second.

One of my riding buddies used to say about motorcyclers...
"There are 2 kinds of riders...those who have crashed; and those who are going to crash..."

I quit before I became one who crashed.

Haha! Amen! The greatest kinetic energy round I posses is only about 3900 Nm, while my ford pos has about 500KJ! No comparison. Ban the cars ;-) oh, wait....... I think they're already trying that.

That makes a guy who rode a bike, not a motorcyclist

I heard it a different way.
"There are those that have been down, and those that are going down."

I've never been down. But I did collide with a car just west of Jacksonville, FL. I managed to keep it upright thought. He passed me while changing lanes at the same time side swiping me. I looked down to see the only damage was a bent buckle on my boot. I counted my blessings an got on the highway.

Yeah Luis, same meaning.
Glad you were ok.
I had a roommate killed years ago on his bike...T-boned in an intersection by an elderly lady who didnt notice the red light.
More often than not...it's the cars at fault. Just harder to see motorcycles.
