The had this on KTLA this morning. So many things about this but have say that the motorcyclist did a great job of staying upright! Lucky MoFo! His actions though did escalate into an innocent driver to get hurt and wreck his vehicle, and should he have stopped. That to me is BS, whether his actions were right or wrong (I'm sure they'll be plenty of options about) he should have stopped, now he's a hit and run suspect.

I read on FB that driver crossed the double yellow

Rider is hella lucky he's not dead and/or charged for causing the SUV to flip

It's a losing battle...loud horn, engine Rev, and disapproval nod is about as far as I will go

He needs to turn himself in or he will most likely get charged for a hit and run.

Love the reporter:

"motorcyclist kicks at a car in HOV lane, car goes out of control"

Oh really is that what happened there?
All I saw was an attempted murder by car driver, a very sloppy attempt

Can you imagine if you were his co-worker? 

"Hey Johnny, was that your Harley on the news this morning?"

"Uh, no."

"How did you get that scratch on your saddlebags?"

Probably a solo cager that crossed into the carpool lane and motorcyclist got pissed and may have even been cut off.  Best route is to avoid careless cagers, and disapprove after you've split lanes ahead of him/her.  These types of motorists clearly don't care about laws and the video is the result of trying to "teach someone a lesson"...  In the end, an inoccent party got sent to the hospital, a carpool violator will have his car totaled and was taught a tough lesson, traffic certainly got worse afterwards and pissed off many, we motorcyclists look bad, and someone has a misdemeanor felony hit and run and other charges to face.

^^^ Lol, the last time I heard the news said the motorcyclist was cut-off by the car, which then lead to the kick and the car retaliated by trying to kill the motorcyclist which caused car to loose control...

I've had 4 cars this week try to merge into me this week, I didn't kick a single door guess thats why I didn't make it onto the news :)

Wow, there's more proof to my theory that people are getting dumber all the time.  We need to make it more difficult to get (and keep) a drivers license!

The guy on the cruiser has done more for motorcycle awareness than an ad campaign. 

Not that it was what he intended to do...

Ride on,

That and how important it is to know how to ride. How he kept that bike upright was shocking to me. I was more impressed with that than, than shocked about what actually happened!  :32:

I'd like to see the video footage BEFORE the kicking occurred. And why was that car driving next to the biker? As usual the fake news teams chooses to cut out the rest of the story so they can sensationalize those BAD, bad Biker boyz! I feel really bad for the white truck driver. But that Mazda got what he deserved.

I agree 100%. There's more video than we are being shown. As usual, we are being victimized by media bias.
Also, the guy on the bike is a hell of a rider. And lucky.

I agree 100%. There's more video than we are being shown. As usual, we are being victimized by media bias.

The video was shot from the passenger seat of a following car using a cell phone. They stated that they started filming after the initial incident - i.e. this is all there is.

They also reported that they started filming because they saw the car change lanes into the space occupied by the rider, that there were words/handshaking and horns, which is why they started filming. Then the rider kicked the car.

#1 - let it fluffing go. To both of them. If you are at fault (merged without looking), admit it, then move on. If you are on a bike, just let it fluffing go unless you have a death wish.
#2 - the car swerved into the bike after the bike kicked him. The bike was already swerving away, so the contact was probably very minor. Still, excellent control in keeping it off the barrier. Agreed.
#3 - BUT... Leaving the scene of an accident that you had a part in was the height of stupidity. And now that rider is going to eventually be found, and his (probably already messed up life) is going to get much worse.

He's likely going to blame someone else (the driver of the car) for his problems, even though he had a VERY LARGE part in the outcome, because he couldn't control his temper. Same for the car driver. With the video evidence, he's screwed too. And he's going to blame the motorcycle because he also was unable to control his temper.

The pickup driver was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's allowed to blame both of those idiots. He was two lanes over from where the confrontation took place, and never saw it coming. Poor guy.

Edit - I really like the nanny software that fixes my spelling... ;)

Skillz aside hes a CHUMP for not stopping personally I couldn't live with myself knowing I ran from something like that especially with cameras everywhere, SoCal250 is right people are getting dumber while technology gets smarter, 99.9 percent of the time the driver doesn't see the rider for whatever reason what good comes from kicking a distracted drivers door at speed ?? We are surrounded by idiots!

And people say SUVs are so much safer than cars, had the innocent motorist been in a Camry I bet he wouldn't have rolled over.  As with any video, there's more to the story: http://www.autoblog.com/2017/06/22/video-motorcyclist-kicks-car-triggers-chain-reaction-crash/ 

Didn't click the link: The guy in the silver Sentra cut off the motorcyclist moments before and that is when the passenger started shooting video.   

Good on the witness for maintaining a steady shot, most amatuers would have screwed that shot up.

What about the driver?  Seems like he would be just as guilty, if not worse.  He caused the massive pile-up to begin with.

Looks like they caught up with the motorcyclist...

This may be true but whether you’re a contributor or not you should not leave the scene of the incident. This is basically the issue he faces now.
