I think some sex with someone's mom? Multiple times. And apparently, she liked it from the rich guy in the white car, who came from another country and misses home dearly

I'm going to have to slug a few drinks before I can watch this whole thing straight thru, but from what I've seen let me offer some advice:

I've gotten into many confrontations on my bicycle over the last 20 years, and based on the number of face-to-face confrontations I've had on my motorcycle (currently at 1), I believe most moto riders have almost no experience with getting into a rider-driver confrontation.

1. If you want to chase someone down and then the police roll up on you, good luck explaining you were the aggrieved party.

2. If someone drives like that, he is a fucking asshole. Guess how he will behave when confronted?

I wasn't surprised the driver started with stupid mother insults, but the rider is the one with the problem: he initiated the confrontation and was super easy to irritate. The driver then did everything to initiate a fight including bumping the rider's bike, but the rider didn't want to fight, obviously.

So what to do here? Well, if you aren't going to do some damage, either property or bodily harm, what's the point of confronting him? And trying the old, "I dare you to cross this line" is stupid. If your first reaction when you go toe-to-toe isn't to swing, then getting into someone's face is wasting everyone's time.

On my bicycle, I have a simple rule, if I can't catch you, I forget about it immediately. But what I like to do is wait for a bad driver to get out of his car and as they are walking, I ride up and and surprise 'em! Very easy to do when you don't have an engine....

I'm not sure we watched the same video. Clearly this rider was just itching for a fight, including leaving his helmet on so he could video the fight. What a couple of complete idiots.

Still thinking it might have been staged.

Well, there are 4 kinds of people in a fight:

1. People who do not want to fight. Sounds like a normal state but they will allow themselves to be punched repeatedly without fighting back.

2. Super-aggro. They are going to brawl and they need very little provocation to do so. Usually related to alcohol consumption.

3. Then there are loss-of-self-control people. They are visibly angry, the first sign of loss-of-control. They actually don't want to fight but they make stupid inciting remarks to get the other person to attack them first.

Most people are incapable of actually striking first but they will defend themselves if struck. The rider alternately insulted the driver then exclaimed "If you touch me, I'll beat you".

Imagine if the driver just stood there calmly. The rider's anger would have diffused, and while he may feel even more stupid, no fight.

And the fourth kind are the people who are masters of confrontation. They are not going to get mad no matter what is said, they stay aware of the surroundings and potential threats, and they understand what the ultimate goal is: whether it is to fight, to annoy, to flee, or to resolve the problem peacefully.

This rider wanted to fight but he did a very bad job of it.
