Past sunday I had SUV coming other way wave in to my lane almost hitting me. The way he did that it looked like he was trying to hit me. Good thing I saw what he was doing and did quick escape to the right. I think people are getting crazy on the winter holidays.

There is a car club around my area that has an initiation rite to run a motorcycle rider off the road. But they usually use a truck to run you off the road and a car behind that to record it.

Glad you made it safe home but hope the person(s) driving got the help they needed too.

It ain't about where you live; it's about how you live. So, ride to live, Bruh.

I swear i heard the squeaking of his tires with my helmet on and music blasting at 70 mph , i put it back to 5 th gear and blasted the throttle full without clutch and turned to the lift lane i was so scared , he was making doughnuts and the tires where smoking like NASCAR i saw his head lights go up and down he smashed into the concrete ,


Should have i stopped ? i think he was trying to kill me i have no enemies ?

I am glad i was alive to see my kids , i told them about it now they toke my keys and claim they lost em



Be careful guys and girls its a world with crazy people living in it .
You r lucky man. For two things. He missed you plus your smart quick reaction..
I agree with some other posts here.. Distractive driving or alcohol ..however you should have stopped and called it in, may have been a medical emergency ...you don't have to go close, leave that to the professionals..anyway your still alive that's what really maters for you and your family...

Just got to store and my only question is:

Why do idiots always try to ram or kill you in the parking lot? People can be so pathetically reckless and irresponsible.

It ain't about where you live; it's about how you live. So, ride to live, Bruh.
