Holy Cow! How the hell did that car keep up?

This is terrible! I would have bailed out of there: car vs moto does not compute for me.

Geeeez.

NEVER try to out stupid someone. It's about survival, not proving who has the biggest testicles.

At about 1:00 mark of the first vid I woulda gave red car man LOTS of space.

At the ~1:50 mark I would have gotten the hell outta there (ran up on the sidewalk, U-turn, something).

Also thank Jeebus for twisty roads in this part of the country. Part of me kept waiting for the inevitable turn that would take one or both of them out - it never came. This took place on the straightest roads in the world. If that would have happened in my neck of the woods, no way a car can keep up with me on any roads around here.

It apparently all started when the rider split between two cars at a red light. They were the only other vehicles, at least from the camera's view. He couldn't wait for one to get farther ahead than the other and just pass them normally? Of course, what he did, while illegal (probably even in Calif, definitely in Florida), did NOT justify what the asshat in the Ford proceeded to do. He was supposedly a novice rider. Bet he doesn't pull that crap again.

Thanks for the working links, Ridemotto.

That rider's response was dreadful. When the red car first gunned it out of the red light he should have gone "oh shit, i got a loonie out here" instead of retaliating.

The rest, though... Well, it was a little hard to watch. Glad no one got hurt.

Agreed. It would have been simple to stay where he was. Watch the light turn and then leave it to the fucking moron motorist to make a decision which way he was going and go the other way.

Considering it was Florida I'm half surprised neither of these idiots shot the other.

+1 if your going to flip him off and taunt him then be
man enough to face him. Or better yet just don't escalate
the situation at all.
