It would appear that an "I'm sorry if you think I cut you off. It was not my intention. I apologize". Or maybe better still ignoring the man as he made gestures, but surely not driving down the road exchanging exchanging insults and gestures. As my Mother wold say, "Two wrongs don't make a right"!

You can get more flies with honey than vinegar. Turning the other cheek when you haven't "meant" to offend anyone is the best for all parties. The motorcyclist had something to draw his ire in the first place, and to have someone who allegedly "cut" him off raise his anger even more was just a telling sign that he was out for whatever it took to "vent" it.

Please - let these types of things "go" and don't cause it to escalate...even if you were the party wronged. Is it really worth it to both sides? No. It just makes for more issues in the long run.

I was also surprised the auto driver responded. At best it was foolish, at worst it showed an immature, gotta-be-right, don't-mess-with-me, win-at-all-costs, competitive to a fault mentality. Now he is dragging his kids into it. Even if wronged--best to ignore.

It won't take the police long to figure out who the guy was using computers finding people that own the truck described and a motorcycle and with pictures. Motorcyclists be a where you are not as big as a truck or SUV it is easy for you to get in peoples blind spots. I doubt this man even knew he cut of the motorcycle if that was the case.

When I am "cut off" I tell myself I am lucky it didn't cause an accident, or other sad consequence. It may be better to exercise "a soft answer turneth away wrath" but when you are in the midst of this kind of dilemma, the human response may be entirely different. I hope that the family can find peace in their own home again.
