Poor riding - bit of a throbber
Disgraceful driving - stolen / drugs? Terrifying to think these people are on the roads with us.

Honda Civics requires a particular set of skills.

You need to be aware of their increased randomness and slow acceleration; and decreased mental stability and random braking.

You need to give them more space and be aware of where they are at all times.
Fixed that for you.

Still a pair of idiots met, luckily no one died or was seriously injured. Hopefully Plod will do something about both idiots.

Must say, even as a non biker I have always had a thing for the Hayabusa, its so fantastically ugly and evil looking, what do bikers make of them, is it regarded as a bit of a big lump ? fast but unwieldy, sort of a two wheeled lardy but powerful GT ? Amazing you can get one for three grand or under.

Remember returning to my hotel in a suburb of Atlanta whilst away with work, having been to my temporary local I weaved my way back and there were a few chaps on very impressive looking bikes, stood having a chat, I recognized one a "Busa" as I believe they get called and despite them looking a bit scary I said hello and complemented them on their fine steeds.

They didnt seem to want to kill/rob me or anything, so got chatting, they had various modifications and all but one had a much longer rear swingarm, turbos and nitrous were involved, as were impressive paint and neon lights but its a bit hazy, one of them offered me a spin on the back but even in my slightly drunk state I am not that fking mental, having been on standard sports bikes and been utterly terrified I cant imagine my chances of holding on to something like that if I nearly fell of the back of a 100 bhp CBR600 biggrin
Cool starry bruh
Most of the things that have happened elsewhere has happened to him in one form or another.

Even the one offs.
Not sure what you mean ?

Never crashed one into a Honda Civic myself.

Biker looks for trouble and finds it

This is unlikely to have been an accident Id have had on sports bikes
The preceding few minutes of footage are telling

I give bikes all the room they want no matter how they are riding, cars shouldn't get involved in racing bikes it's too dangerous.

Watched that video again to try to spot where the biker pisses the civic off.

First 30 seconds or so up to the first set of lights the biker doesn't appear to be going much quicker than other traffic. He's certainly not gaining on the cars in front of him.

Filters to the front of those lights and gets off quick but again I can't hear his engine screaming and doesn't look any quicker than the first 30/40 seconds. It does seem like him getting off at the lights pissed the civic off.

When he filters at the next set it clearly pushed the civic over the edge. Looks like the biker foolishly rises to the challenge at this point.

Both silly but to me it looked like the civic driver thinks he's king of the road and is not to be fked with. That move is playing with someone's life and add in the fact he's clearly just drove off from watch must have looked a pretty serious accident.

Hopefully they catch him and torch his license along with his POS car.

is there a non-facebook version?

EDIT: his facebook banner is "cars have bumpers, bikers have bones". That tells me pretty much everything I need to know about him.

Wound up the Civic driver (or his passenger) at the second set of lights, something said, and then chased the Honda. Honda saw him coming and cut him up by drifting into his lane and braking.

With some bellend drivers it's best to just pull over and let them past. They'll face karma at some point later. We are living in the age of the knife and gun. With minimal police around (they won't recruit fast enough to deal with with this menace) I doubt we'll see much happening to the guys in the Civic. Did the camera pick up the reg of the car? Doubtful. This will be one of those videos where nothing else will happen, like Travellers in Lamborghini vs Police X5...

I have little sympathy for those who knowingly put themselves in to a situation they know they shouldn't be, it goes wrong and they then go whining about it expecting sympathy. Its up there with walking in to a lions den then getting bitten or taking a cricket bat to the fact because you were in another mans house at 3am, uninvited. This strikes me as another dashcam type who does appear to be creating a situation just so they can get some kudos... and I don't mean he went out to rear end the Civic, but it was fairly evident that things were escalating and yet despite his "bikers have bones" hand wringing, he chose to get involved and it bit him back. He filtered forward at the lights but seemed a bit slow on the uptake, that can create issues and ps off drivers. The move left by the Civic was bad, but was it intentional or did he think he'd gained enough ground, lost the bike's single headlight in the lights of cars following and wasn't ready for the closing speed of the bike.... who knows really but I assume that's a question the Police will be asking too as part of their murder investigation... or not. Situation, broken rib and bike damaged again could have easily been avoided so whilst yes, worrying that we share the roads with these sort of types... both biker and car driver.

I have little sympathy for those posters who don't punctuate their paragraphs.

He claimed: 'I was overtaking him quite legitimately on Ridgeway Road, Gleedless about 18:45 last night (OCT 5TH) and he ran me off the road.
I don't think the chasing after the driver was legitimate. Carefully edited shorter video just right for the paper to make this into a story about 'yoof' in their cars... rolleyes

I'm sure these started off as a normal pair of shades

that have been deformed by G forces due to weeks of excessive speed getmecoat

Anybody that races on that road is asking for trouble, it’s a busy road with a lot happening inc trams and various junctions, filter lanes etc. The biker put himself in that position. Anyone that wheel spins off from lights needs a wide berth and not raced
That is essentially it. Only thing further is thread title should be "When cocks collide."

Zero sympathy either way, licence removal time.

I mean, obviously nobody here has ever had any fun with another driver, obviously never. Obviously. But deliberately swerving and knocking him off simply isn’t cricket. If he’d been killed he’d be doing time for that little trick.

Much like other road users with cameras, I find they go looking for trouble just so they have something "good" to post online.

Both in the wrong.
Biker should know better and most likely won't be doing it again in a hurry
