At least he wasn't on a sportbike, still terrible nonetheless.

Wow, that's insane. Not sure who to feel worse for this time...the biker or the guy driving the truck

Re: Road Rage Incident Ends Badly

prolly not wearing a helmet may have increased his chances of being fatally wounded though?

Sux nonetheless.

Be fast or be last.

Re: Road Rage Incident Ends Badly

The guy in the truck did nothing wrong, you cant tell me the motorcyclist didnít see the big rig pulling out and had a chance to slow down or even come to a stop. You canít win against a semi so why try and narrowly miss it proving you had the right of way. Then to come back around for more is...well...natural selection at work.

There's no way to stick up for the cyclist on this one.

Re: Road Rage Incident Ends Badly

Sounds like the rider ran a red light, and was speeding. Biker's fault...

Re: Road Rage Incident Ends Badly

What moron on a motorcycle would rage against a semi . . . duh?!? I'm sorry but the guy on the bike was an idiot. It is only too bad that he paid for his mistake with his life.

Re: Road Rage Incident Ends Badly

Such a tragedy when someone loses their life, even if stupidity is to blame.

Re: Road Rage Incident Ends Badly

Score another win for Darwin... *Sounds like he might be a candidate for this year's award.

I've never understood the motorcyclist roadrage thing. *I've seen it before, but the 'Law of Gross Tonnage' pretty much dictates that a ~600lb bike/rider will always lose against a 4,000 pound cage, let alone a big-rig. *Go figure.
