If you will notice, the signs were yellow/orange. This is a suggested cautionary safe speed limit in times of bad weather/visability. It is not a mandatory speed limit.The speed on those curves before they approached the truck was 35. They were leaning pretty good for 35mph.
You may be quite right, however, two wrongs never make a right. The cage driver should be punished for his attempted manslaughter/murder, stalking, and menacing the public. Any speeding that the first biker was doing, so was the cage; he couldn't even keep his truck on his side of the road while he was in "hot pursuit".Personally I think the guys on the bike are not as innocent as they are trying to make themselves out to be.
Watch the video again. The cage driver stayed in his lane through the curve just prior the the biker passing him. It was in the stretch of straight road following that curve that the biker started to pass the cage, and where the cage proceeded into the incoming traffic lane in an attempt to cut off the biker.I agree that what the truck driver did was dead wrong. That being said, if it was me...Coming up on a vehicle as fast as those two riders were, I would have given it a minute before I tried to pass. If the truck driver didn't look in his rear view for 20-30 seconds he may not have even known there was a bike approaching. On county roads like that many people cross the center line during their normal driving. I am not saying the riders were doing something illegal, but if I was in their position I would have been a little more careful.
That's the way I see it as well.Y'all must be watching a different video than the rest of us
One bike passed, safely (if they were being douches, both would have started to go around him at high speed), and the guy tried to hit rider one and take him down.
The truck was going under the speed limit, they were legally allowed to pass, and again... it's not like the bike rocketed past him, he was performing a safe pass, didn't even gun the bike to do it.
Biker one tried to shake the psycho, but still didn't go into excessive speeds because that would have been unsafe as well. Biker two stayed behind to make the situation "safer" plus document the incident(s).
When possible, biker one pulled over and stopped. Neither acted out, even when being threatened, hell... they didn't even talk ****. They remained composed, just as they did while riding.
