Wow. Very well done by the rider.   :7:

I think the irate driver was just mad for the sake of being mad at something and the biker just lit his short fuse.  Then he proceeded to get heat stroke or a heart attack.  Nice people around who helped calm the situation.

Wow! You never know what's going to set someone off. The rider did good here. He could have easily retaliated to the blows he received but kept his cool.

+1 probably would have lost my cool when he attacked the girl on the back.

Handled like a pro or at least someone who's handled his share of aggressive douches in his time.  Sometimes it helps to assess the threat, anyone wearing flip-flops while I'm wearing shoes, driving an Accord, and not wearing a gi is going to be put on the ground.  8)

He probably didn't feel those blows much because it landed on his helmet.  LOL!  But yeah I think I would have gone medieval on that driver for attacking me and my girl.

All this makes me think of is that video where the guy from the f150 gets rocked with a helmet. Really glad that wasn't me because I would probly be in jail.
no more stoppies for me.

I'm in the "I wouldn't have handled it that well" crowd. Funny though, everyone admires the guy on the bike for not losing his cool vs thinking he's a wuss for not kicking his ass. Good to see. I liked the look on the guy's face as he's laying on his back, the rider asking him if he thought that was the right thing to do and you can see it dawn on the guy that he just screwed up :32:

I agree. It took much more courage to not kick his ass. He took control of the situation like a boss and didn't allow the cager to keep assaulting him. I don't blame him for taking an extra minute to make sure the kickstand was down and moving his bike out of danger. lol.

I tip my Hat to the Rider  :8:
With traffic getting worse & worse...............people in cars hate us because we don't have to deal with it, I have listened to talk shows where people call in and their main complaint is that they have to wait while we go on through.
The guys face when he was pinned down laying in the gutter.........................priceless.

Makes me think more and more that a helmet camera for the daily commute might be a good idea. It's there if you need it.

That new Sena 10C would be the ticket in my book. It's basically meant to be a "vloggers" camera but it also has a comm system and can be tied to you phone via Bluetooth. Good all around unit. Revzilla did a little video review on it.

Pretty smart for that fat belly cager to punch a helmet with his fist  ::) Hopefully he will get charge with assault with that video evidence
