Yea, exactly. And some good advice is to just eat it up and move on with your life. I know it sucks, we all take that attitude that someone that cuts us off or whatever could've possibly killed us, but the person with the 2 ton vehicle is always going to win anything that gets out of hand.
Couple weeks ago we had another road rage incident that was caught on GoPro in LA. Where a cager got into it with some bikes then the cages sideswiped one of the bikes. Is the cager an asshole and deserve to be arrested? Absolutely, but WHY would you chase down and pull in front of someone driving a car who just raged on by you.
As much as this incident was an extreme tragedy and a very disturbing incident, I imagine if Zach knew things were gunna end up like that, he probably would've let the bitch go. So we should take other riders mistakes as our learning opportunities.
Totally agree!!!! A rider can be totally right in being mad, but we pay a much bigger price when things escalate. Gotta sit back and think big picture instead of letting the emotion take over. For me it's tail-gaters - something about a 20-something riding my bumper in the diamond lane while texting gets my blood boiling, but simply letting them pass is what I've learned is the smarter move.....
Be safe out there everybody
