"UPDATE.... The old man was arrested today 10/19/2015 on 2 counts of Assault with a deadly weapon."
Fucked up. I'm glad that their injuries weren't worse.
I do a lot of cycling and have for many years. It wasn't until I started reading internet comment sections that I realized that there are a whole lot of people who just genuinely would like to murder you if they see you on a small vehicle. Like one time somebody on a similar vehicle slightly inconvenienced them, so now they are just waiting for their change to crush you with their car. No big deal. It's kind of terrifying.
I think a lot of cyclist act like shitheads and douchebags out on the road (most of them, really), but I would never actively try to kill somebody. But, yes, unfortunately I think all cyclists now are paying for the shitheads like the ones in this video who decided to fuck with other people on the road by doing an illegal passing and tailgaiting people. This reminds me of the video where the biker literally went through 4 or 5 stop signs without even slowing down, but then wanted everyone to be filled with righteous outrage when a driver purposefully pushed him off the road.
So...basically all these people are kind of idiots.
bikers aren't even close to car drivers on the shithead scale.
I've never had a bike cut me off, while douchebags in lifted pickup trucks act like the road is literally for their use only.
Also bikers tend to pay attention to the road more, so they don't accidentally cut me off or wander into my lane like so many distracted women and old people have.
Yes, SolRo, but I've never had a car come driving at me down the sidewalk going the wrong way on a one-way street.
Sorry, but the majority of bicyclists are assholes, at least around here.

I just watched part 2 and I am definitely not justifying what the old man did. He is an unapologetic asshole who obviously felt it was his place to put some biker in his place.
But the riders thought crossing a double yellow line was a good idea because...?
so before part two it was okay to attempt murder for a minor traffic violation?
you kind of are justifying it.
the whole "well if they didn't go to pass him then the murderous old bastard wouldn't have had the chance to try to kill them".
or "they were asking for it, dressing up in all that leather!"

Crossing double yellow lines is a traffic violation. At least I'm pretty sure it is in Texas. It doesn't justify the old man's crime any more than hitting somebody makes it okay that they were illegally passing.
Is it so hard to believe that maybe, just maybe both of these people were in the wrong?
I hate bikers like any normal person, but this was totally unjustified. If people do dangerous things, let their consequences be the punishment. Don't try to become the consequence yourself.

and we thought the
king of the bees
had turned a new leaf
idk, if you watch part two the driver claims he was stung by a wasp, and that's why he swerved at just the right second.
That's totally unjustified. You can't just hit people because they're riding motorcycles. The free hits rule only applies to bicyclists.
Does anyone think that maybe the bee sting was true? I thought it was a lie he rolls into recovery, but then on rewatching Part 2 it it seems he exits the car rubbing his leg. Could it have been bad timing for a justified swerve?
If I got a bee sting and swerved and hit someone by accident, I'm pretty sure I would be the first one out of my car looking for help instead of shrugging and saying I don't care.
He said "I don't care, there was a double yellow line, I don't care" and not "Holy shit let me call for help oh my god I had no idea he was there"
I think you fellas might bee making a good point
Fuck old people.
