Happened to me years ago when I came up behind a group of mods on scooters. They were not at all pleased when I invaded their group on my x7.
I was laughing inside my helmet as they tried to box me in but it was a nervous sort of laughter.

A lot of whining going on in that clip. He is not the sharpest tool in the shed.
Obviously didn't watch the Sons Of A narky. Those boys are bad tempered and demand respect. That poor MC man must have diabetes and his blood sugars just dropped.

The video started well, then it turned into a 21 minute video just saying "our mc doesn't like people closing to overtake because we're scared of strangers and we'll bully you into submission"

Ah he should have kept it pinned and passed the whole group - stopping in the middle of the group was a rookie move that gave the tractor knuckle-heads a chance to box him in. US road laws and etiquette discourage overtaking or making 'spirited progress' and it results in easily triggered road rage.

I doubt those monkey bikes would do more than 60mph? either way the black dragon president wasn't impressed, and the tail gunner assistant road captain was having none of it.

I think the Rear Road Sweeper is under the command of the Senior Road Captain, who then answers to the Sargent at Arms, least that's the way it was in '51.

So let me get this straight.
If 6 bikes are taking up 100 yards of road with plenty of room between them. You have to treat the pack as a single and not pick off one or two at a time.
And 2 . how would an on coming cage not hit the first bike that swerved into oncoming traffic if it was going to hit the one further back he was protecting.
Or does he mean his buddy will take the head on collision for him?

If cages followed in convoy like that with them rules.the road would be a blood bath.
I'm not saying they should have sped up but they should have made room to let him pass .I've done the same when someone comes up behind me
