Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

tcmalker can unload 10 or 20 minute prior, but you won't see nothing. That one eye bandit came out of nowhere. There is not way tcmalker will get bullied by some cagers. On the legal side, tcmalker had to do what he did to avoid being run over by a road raged maniac.

tcmalker can also post the rest of his ride (about 20 mins) and you will see that he ride safely the rest of the way

Dude, I don't even know you, but for some reason, I remeber seeing all the vids of you getting hit, and now this one.

You seem to be a magnet for trouble. Reevaluate your riding style and your attitude before you end up on the non-living side of things....

BTW: who the fuck are you, Bob Dole? If you're going to refer to yourself, it's okay to use a personal pronoun, such as "I"

Be careful out there. No matter what, a 4,000 pound cage is dangerous. Ditching him in traffic is a double edged sword, but probably was a good idea at that point. Just be safe while doing it.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

so I just wasted my time watching you slow down so someone could get close to you and then watch you accelerate away?

It looked to me like you were in the far left lane and he came up on you. he was traveling faster than you were so you should have moved over and let him by. after that it seemed like he thought he was racing you. You really need to be careful with the lane splitting.

Stupid. Why would you waste your time trying to go against a car when all he has to do is just touch your tire with his car and your riding days are likely over? He tried to pass you in the other lane 2 seperate times and you cut him off and slowed down. Based on this video, I would say your a douche bag and I wont be suprised when you do that to the wrong person and they actually retaliate.

To me it looks like they were both going at it. At first I saw the car chasing him, but when it tried to pass tcmalker sped up and got in front of him.
Not worth it imo. Just back off or get away. Some cagers are stupid and don't realize the consequences of their actions when they mess with a bike.

Don't let cagers mess with you ever again. Stand up for yourself and all riders.

tcmalker ain't no punk! nobody messes with tcmalker! tcmalker does not back down! Besides he did the right thing in ditching the tailgater.

anywho, here's the video of ride a few minutes prior. Keep the apologies coming...

I had to do something similar a couple weeks back. Some guy in a camaro was trying to race me. There was nowhere for me to turn and when I moved over and slowed down he got right behind me to the point where I had to accelerate away. I really thought that guy was going to bump my back tire.
