Speed Triple rear ended on video

I guess not quite a 675, but looks like a speed triple rider gets rear ended in this vid:

I like how he conveniently leaves out in the narration that he flips the guy the bird after cutting him off, and then makes up some bs about slowing down to get into the right lane, when it's obvious he's just slowing down to piss the truck driver off even more. Still doesn't excuse the guy rear ending him, but this guy's no angel.

You know, the more I watch it, the more I'm convinced that the narration has to be a dubbed-over joke by someone making fun of the original rider's video. Surely no one is that stupid to think the audience is going to buy his story with the video evidence clear-as-day.

Gotta be a joke.

I know this guy. He posts on Reddit and lives in Orlando. Seems like he made a bad lane change (coming way to close to the other car he passes), gives the guy the finger, then slows down to be a dick, then either he stopped and the guy bumped him, or the guy bumped him on purpose.

Haha. Bikers who piss off cagers just kill me. I made the mistake, once, of letting my emotions get the best of me and I returned a middle finger from a red neck in a jacked up pickup truck. Luckily I saw him whipping a shitty to come after me. I was able to rip away but we will always lose against them.

No excuse for hitting anyone, but the biker could have just put a hand up and said sorry. Done.

What a joker, reminds me of the guy who posted a video where that silver civic tried to run his kid over. To me my initial reaction was this person is instigating the situation just like the guy on the civic video. I understand road rage happens, but don't bikers realize they're fighting a battle they can't win? car > motorcycle in crashes last time i checked. SMH this guy was an idiot and I didn't even need to hear the audio.

He was being antagonistic, for sure. However, intentionally hitting someone is insane.

That was his own fault. Not paying attention to the car in front of him and cutting over. He should have just waved to the truck as a sorry and all would have been fine.

I love when bike riders try to play the hard ass to cagers. It's like throwing pennies at a guy with a rifle from 100 yards. I never mess with cages. I know I'm heavily outgunned and behave appropriately.
