Ignorant fuck. Never wondered WHY the truck changed lanes. Too bad he didn't roll it over 6 or 7 times.

What a friggin' a hole.

These idiots think they are on a track (driving or riding). We have all seen them. Weaving across all the lanes.


The victims are the innocent who they involve in the eventual wreck.

That overtake speed was ridiculous.

Look up the durometer (rubber hardness rating) for yourself. Street motorcycle tires generally have a durometer rating of around 65-70. Car tires are generally less (softer) than that.

...Orygunner...
Back to GEEEK WARS here. Are you sure about that? I just checked my bike and car tires briefly with a durometer. The bike tires were softer; 55 vs. 65 for the car. The car uses V-rated tires and my GS has Conti Road Attacks on it. My bike's tires are softer than my car's tires. Population sample = 1.

We could discuss lean angles vs. tire width next if anyone wants, but I'll stop here because I need pics, too. I love me some pics.

Seems the trucker waited until the last second, got right up the rider's ass, then changed lanes... not exactly safe or professional from where I sit.

I don't like many truckers, but that is NOT the trucker's fault.

Didn't say it was. But you have to admit that he was right up the rider's ass before he decided to go ahead and pass. I wonder what that was about.

Could also be that the bike decreased speed suddenly or was just riding at a much slower speed than the norm and the truck saw a clear lane on the left. At usual highway speeds the truck would have expected the left lane to remain clear for a few seconds.

The nitwit was traveling FAST or why would they be capturing it on video? Replay of driving at or around the speed limit on a 4 lane highway is a snoozer.

But what is really funny is how no one said anything about the truck UP THE MOTORCYCLES ASS! He was tailgating them so close I am surprised he didnt hit them.
but when bikes are doing triple digits everyone say how cool it is....

I drive a truck and it was the truckers fault. The biggest asshole move in history, and I see it all day long from trucks cars, motorcycles, everything with wheels. Not paying attention and just changing lanes with out looking. Granted the guy in the car should have slowed down and I would really like to know HOW a motorcycle is being passed by a truck but that truck could have seen that car coming for a mile, whether he was weaving in and out of doing 130mph, seen the motorcycle from 3/4 of a mile, and noticed how slow it was moving. And don't even say the bike could have had a problem. If he did, it is a REALLY bad idea to take your problem in front of a tractor trailer.... There were only 4 vehicles on the road, but I guess you only need 1 to crash.

People drive like assholes everywhere.
