Last night i was riding on the interstate at around 2 am listening to music enjoying the the ride , i was alone on the road in the middle lane when i saw this car coming from my left side approaching at high speed so far is normal BUT around ten feet from me he made a 90 degree sharp right turn at me !!! 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 .
ive seen it happen more times than i can count. i bet he was texting and when he looked up and saw your taillight he flipped out. or drunk, eating, talking. its a war zone out there, glad you made it home

May the road rise to meet you and the wind always be at your back
I wouldn't have stopped... At a moment like that all you have to think about is getting home to your family and being thankful that nothing happened to you.
I've been in similar situations both on my bike and in a cage. Some people are just totally oblivious to their surroundings until an obstacle is literally in their face. Not too sure about people driving maliciously with intent to run motorcyclists off the road. It is more likely to encounter a drunk driver, a sleepy driver or even a stupid driver.
Either way, glad to hear you're ok. Wait a while before you ask for your keys back and next time you're out that late, maybe take a different route. Stay Up.

There are people in the world that simply do not like motorcycles, and will try to cause you injury, on purpose. I like to think they're rare, but they are out there.
Given the situation, your best bet would probably be to ride to the next exit and call from there.
WOW! Glad you are safe and sound. It has to be an emergency to get me out at that time of day for that exact reason. As far as stopping...? A few years ago a semi pulled off of the shoulder onto the interstate in front of me, I had to change lanes to avoid hitting him. When I did that the car to my left (in my blind spot) went into the median, over corrected and then slowly rolled over. I stoppped although we never made contact. The accident was dubbed my fault and my insurance went up. I have vowed to never stop if I do not make contact with another car. That was about 30 years ago, luckily I have never had to make that decision since then.
