Almost bit it on Sunday!

I got out for a pretty nice ride on the XR650 yesterday. I went around and about, hit some twisties and a few trails around by my neiborhood.

So I'm riding on a two lane side street getting ready to turn right using my blinker and hand signal. I knew a car was behind me a little ways back. So I go to turn and I'm kinda leaning hard getting my butt off the seat and WHAMMM I nailed this bitch.

This dumb bitch tried to pass me on the right!!!. I put a huge dent in the side of her car and scrapped up the whole side.

If I would of turned a second earlier she would have ran me over!

Then she freaks out slams on her brakes and goes sliding and almost nails this light pole. So I get off the bike, put it down on the kick stand while yelling profanities at her. She has the nerve to say "YOU RAN INTO ME, YOU RAN INTO ME!"

I was like, "You didn't see my signals?" SIGNALSSSSS!!!!!!!

So out of rage, I punched the drivers side window as hard as I could with my carbon fiber gloves and tried to open the door but she had it locked. I Scarded the living shit out of her and she sped off.

I made sure I still had all my lims intact, and everything was OK except a bent foot peg on the bike with the paint from her car all over the it.

I don't know why she was trying to pass me on the right. What a dumb bitch.

That gave me a big taste of reality, scared the shit out of me.

Watch out for stupid drivers out there guys, you never know!

Was she in her own lane or trying to split yours with you??

It was a two lane road in a subdivision, one lane going one direction and the other lane going the other direction, where cars can park on either side, so she had the room to pass on the right side, but I don't know why the fuck she would initiate a pass to the right of me.

That sounds pretty stupid on her part. You should have got her plates and nailed her on hit and run.

Then again threatening her life may have thrown that out the window.

Yea, I figured, I'm OK and I scared the shit out of her and messed her car up pretty good.... so that was good enough.

I hate dealing with cops anyway.

I'll just bend my foot peg back with a hammer.

Scared the crap out me though, that dumb ass could have ran me rite over!

Yea, I was playin kinda hard, I was powering the ass end out on every corner.

Too bad that won't stop me from riding hard though... oh well.

I only have one mirror on the XR (on the left side) so that kinda screwed me to.

Have you ever tried to punch a car window and break it. It ain't that easy to break one.

It's easy if you don't spread out the pressure point of the blow. Which means you have to use a knuckle.

I'd make a police report, just in case she calls the cops on you. Not that it may happen, but to cover your a$$.

Glad you are ok..

I was just about to post the same...file your side before she files hers.

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Agreed. Punching and hittling the window with your first two knuckles would be the preferred method. You really have to windup and let it go as if you were going to hit a big cardboard box. Make sure that you do have leather or something on, because I have seen people sever tendons by doing this and the glass above where they hit coming down on their hand.

Should not happen with car windows as they burst into a million tiny fragments. Good luck with your knuckles if you don't hit it quite hard enough to give.

In most cases I would recommend better anger management.

What kind of gloves do you have?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
