MIAMI, Fla. – A South Florida motorcyclist claims he was almost forced off a Miami roadway in a road rage incident that was all caught on video and posted to YouTube.

According to the Daily Mail, the YouTube user, Roni G, says he was riding when a red car swerved dangerously in front of him, almost causing a collision.

It's unknown whether the motorcyclist had done anything prior to provoke the move.

After the first incident, 'Roni' attempts to get away by riding at high speeds into oncoming traffic, narrowly missing cars driving in the opposite direction.

When the car eventually catches up to the motorcycle, a man in an orange shirt sticks his head out and appears to be shouting something at the rider while recording the confrontation on his smartphone.

The driver said he chased down the man on the motorcycle because he had broken his mirror and wanted to get his license plate.

On the YouTube post, 'Roni' says that he is an "inexperienced rider" and panicked.

"I will admit when I am wrong. all of this stuff wasn't on purpose but an attempt to get away," says the rider. "I didn't chose to get on to on coming traffic, he blocked my path on both lanes, I didn't want to harm myself or other people, which is exactly what happened, no one got hurt, everyone, even the guy goes home."

However, the Daily Mail reports that commenters on the YouTube page say 'Roni' had previously operated a page titled "Messing with Cars" that he has since deleted.
