    Bike rager in Sydney.

    I was witness to the best bike rage against car drivers today,at lunchtime as i left my local bank walking towards a set of lights i see a male cyclist two cars away from the lights screeching to a halt on the passenger side(left side) and thump on the roof of the car and yelling to the driver"do you know how to park mate",this he said in a really loud angry tone,meanwhile the driver is looking at him and saying something that i could'nt hear as his windows are all up the lights turn green and he drives off,at this point a cab driver behind them beeps his horn and the cyclists pulls in front and goes ballistic.The rider mouth foaming spit flying everywhere is yelling at the driver" whats your effing problem". and to get out of the cab the driver by now is motioning him to come to his side of the car while doing this the rider is going bonkers thumping on the cab with his hands and i think he was trying to dismount to throw his bike, well the cabbie drives off,me and other rubber neckers standing there gobsmacked,watch as the cyclist tries to take off and gets the red light, well no yelling but i could see his anger plume upon my return 30 mins later.This guy looked to be riding a bike too small for him and i did'nt have the heart to tell him he should be wearing a helmut haha i don't know what happened to kick this incident off but it was the best show i've seen for awhile cheers,

    Too bad you didn't have a video camera.

    Gobsmacked: Aussie slang, without speech, amazed, bewildered, stunned silence.

    I got it.

    CHEERS.
