    That's AWESOME!!!! I made a 25 year old pee himself doing the same thing two years ago. I pulled him through the drivers window, and he pee'd.

    Making them think is exactly why I'm doing that now. They don't learn from a close call. Pull them through the window, and maybe the next time they see a bike, they will figure its not worth it.

    Yes, I know there is always someone bigger and badder, but 45 years of Shotokan, and carrying a Smith & Wesson M&P 40 in the small of my back allows me to handle any situation.

    Hey before I got my Big Dog I used to commute to work on bicycle and if you think we get no respect -- try a bicycle some time.

    I had one day where I entered the circle doing about 20-22mph (as was most of the vehicular traffic) and had a newish mustang cut me off and turn left right in front of me -- I know he saw me. Well at the time the cleats for my bike shoes were metal. I planted one foot when I stopped and got the other leg up as I slide towards the car -- I hit and stayed up and the cleat dragged all the way from the front of the passenger door to part of the rear quarter panel -- Now he's annoyed and stops - Gets out and starts to yell. I dropped the bike and stood up (6ft 250lbs) He left before I could get near him.

    Was out today following my buddy - guy pulls into our lane where my boy let him thru - goes to the center lane, changes his mind and back to left lane almost nailing my buddy in front of me - missed him by about 1 foot. It's why I go the long way out of town normally even when travelling North -- the South route to the back roads is safer even though it can add 45 minutes -- rather be safe and clam.

    Glad to hear you're ok dude -- bottom line that's what matters. And the K-9 will maneuver better than expected in those scenarios -- I know I've had mine completely sideways in the road and got it back -- Rather not try that again though...

    To get south of Dallas, often times I go north first. Adds about 80 miles but I'm okay with it

    Yep. After it happened, I went to the police station and reported myself. The officer knew the person and laughed

    That can actually happen here. I know it sounds funny, but the town that happened to only has 29,000 people. 10 police officers. My high school graduating class had 26 kids in it.

    What a difference it is on the Big Dog site, compared to the Vtwin forum. They have me as the bad guy because I had a problem with what these two drivers did. The only reason I'm still alive, or not in the hospital is I raced dirt bikes as a teen, and did the Keith Code Superbike School in my 20s. It's why I've been a member here since 2009 ....thx everyone for the support. You guys are the best on the web.
