ROAD RAGE! pick up vs bikes

It happened today around 330pm. I was breaking in my leathers and new brake pads when I noticed a pick up driving kind of angry in my opinion. The pick up passed two other vehicles in a rush on 2100 south in Crosby, so I followed. I then noticed another motorcycle behind me, which joined me in formation (waves exchanged). Then things got a little crazy; I was going to make a right turn into my neighborhood, when the pick up driver swerved toward me without any turn signal, and proceeded to yell at me to look out. I stopped to let the truck in, (not being a douche). The other bike went next to the p/u to see what he was yelling at, looked back at me, and when the light turned green kicked the out of the p/u and took off.

The p/u took off trying to catch the bike, I put my hazards on and chased the p/u, didn't want the other guy hanging. He got away thank , and I was able to talk to the p/u driver. He appoligized to me because he didn't signal, but was his truck had a dent. Maybe he ( the p/u dirver ) will think twice before taking his rage out on the street?

Maybe it would be best if we would think of the outcome before we overreact?

I dont think i could have got off the bike,kicked the truck,got back on my bike,started it and took off before the guy in the truck got to me.Unless that guy has his kickstand switch or whatever removed so bike stays on with the kickstand down.

Hmm, as Jetkillr said, Im pretty sure he stayed on the bike.............even if he didnt, why not just leave the bike running in neutral?.......

So I was getting ready to jump off the bike to confront him ask him what the problem was and he flicked me off and tried to drive off so I speed up got next to him and yea lol.
Hey, thanks for what you did! That guy was an clown. I followed him because I thought he would try and kill you. He finally cooled down enough to talk after you got away. Next to the postoffice he appoligized to me. He was really you kicked his truck. When are you going to ride again?
