I probably would have just called the cops but I think the dude had this coming.

Damn near killed the biker. If he panicked & turned left to avoid the truck it would have been really ugly.

I really enjoyed that head-butting. In all seriousness though that would've scared the shit out of me, I dont think some people realize the damage they could do by going after motorcyclists or doing stupid shit like this. Easily could kill somebody

Best head-butt ever. The timing was impeccable.

That head-butt was serious. I probably would have just started crying.

It really was.

The law is the law, but I can't help feeling justice was served there.

Now it's up on youtube, no doubt a lawsuit will ensue where the victim claims the assault has halved his IQ.. to 5.

Holy crap--that head butt was so well placed that it seemingly confused everyone for a couple of seconds. But I still don't entirely understand the scenario. The truck gets very close to hitting the bikes--but why? Previous beef? Something that happened before the camera was switched on? Simply idiotic driving? Their actions seem to indicate some kind of intent (as does his backing up and his immediate attempt at explaining), so it seems like more than bad driving. I'm intrigued...

And, no, nothing like this has ever happened to me. I've run into some bad driving but nothing like this (and its aftermath).

I think the truck driver lives nearby and either that same day or in the past he saw the bikers flying around the town. Someone said the same biker has a video of him hitting 170+ mph on public roads. So I would never condone someone trying to take out a motorcyclist with a truck, the bikers aren't totally innocent in this.

Aaah, I see. That makes sense. So, attempts at vigilante justice of sorts on both sides.

It's all fun and games until someone gets a helmet in the eye...

I don't know where they are... but in Tennessee you can use whatever force you feel is necessary to stop an immediate threat to your personal safety or personal safety of others. In this case if the other guy felt his buddy was in danger of his personal well being with the other guy in his face, he was justified in his actions.

I haven't experienced any this bad but I did have a guy try to chase me in his Nissan Sentra while I was on my 919. He ran a stop sign and damn near hit, when I called him on it at a redlight he got all pissed. I flipped him off and the "chase" ensued. I pulled off the main road and into a parking lot to see if he was still trying to follow me. I don't think he saw the glock on my right hip.

They both got each other's tag #'s but I'd be willing to bet neither one called the cops because they're both in the wrong.

I've been sort of in the truck driver's shoes in the past. I live in a subdivision where there are lots of kids, including mine, riding bikes, etc. Speed limit is 25 mph. Young guy used to fly by my house at 45 mph or more in his car. I'd gesture to slow down but always got ignored. One particular time he came around the corner with tires squealing while a couple young kids were on the sidewalk. I jumped on my bike & found him in his driveway down the street. Firmly but not very politely told him he needed to slow down before he killed someone. Wouldn't have made much sense to pile my wife & kids in the car to chase after after him & run him off the road.

I've had a face to face that while it didn't end in violence, I was expecting the police to knock on my door. They never did. And I've had a few 'chase me, chase me' episodes like DH, where its ended up with me playing with my chasers as they got more and more frustrated.

A lot of the spats you get involved in over here is when lane splitting in stopped traffic. Car drivers don't realise it is not illegal to lane-split and get frustrated at what appears to be you jumping the queue. I've had maybe 10-12 occasions when idiots have tried to block me from doing this. I know daily commuters for who encountering this particular type of idiot regularly is just an accepted part of commuting.
