ok, today about 3 o'clock i was cruising down princewilliam parkway heading from manassas to woodbridge when a silver tribute pulled up along side of me. he rode there for a bit and there were cars ahead of us in both lanes. i was no more than 8 feet from the car in front of the tributes rear bumper, when the tributes looks right at me and cuts hard right at me into my lane. i immediatly hit my brakes and swirved but this guy was leaving no room, he missed my front wheel by inches. this was oviously on purpose and he was flipping me off before i flipped him off. i was doing nothing wrong. it was solid traffick ahead of us and he had no where to even go after he passed. I was fuming pissed. some how flipping him off just wasnt cutting it. oh yeah righ ahead of him was a county sherrif car. At the next light i pulled up along side and we exchanged works. he wasnt even sorry he was pissed he had to ride behind me. so we left the light and i tucked in behind him and cruising about 50mph i reached forward and unzipped my tool bag on my forks and grabed the first thing i felt, which happened to be a 13/16" wrench -I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!-in perfect. stuck it in my coat pocket and stayed behind him. I was waiting for the light ahead, if the cop turned i was giving this -I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!-er a shot in the rear door and throwing a quick u turn this asshole deserved much worse but its all i had at the time. the cop didnt turn i was so pissed i was thinking about just doing it but i talked my self out of it cause i could see cetain jail. so i waited till the next light and before i got to it the wrench fell out of my pocket. omg was i pissed. i went for another wrench and fumbled out an allen wrench set and dropped it ahhhh. the guy turned i hesitated and kept going. i was so pissed i didnt get even i stopped and called the cops. i hate cops. i filed a report on the guy and they said theyed look into it but i dont expect anything. man what i wouldnt give to come up behind that -I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!-er someday hes definitly getting craftsman justice. ill never forget his plate number. ybn5683. i am totally non violent person by the way:doh

I know it sucks man but it is better to chill down a little. Cager can turn his cage into a weapon and you end up being the target. Just feel lucky that nothing happen to you store the bike for the night and have a couple cold one to relax a bit. Just my .02

Staying calm is the correct thing to do.
I know I would have followed him to where he was stopping.
At least everything is OK.

I haven't had anything like that happen in a long time but you never forget how pissed off you get. Sounds like you did the smart thing and let it go. It's dangerous riding pissed off. Glad nothing worse happened to ya!

I am going to have to get the metal sides put on my boots again like I had on the last pair. When you scrape one down the side of a car, it makes a gawd-awful racket and leaves a nice gouge down to the metal.

Hey, bro, I'm fuming right now too from an "accident" I had in 2004. I got off the phone a few minutes ago with a cop from the scene. I'm getting a subpoena for a court date (finally) for this woman that almost took me out. She was on-coming, sitting, for a long time, in a turn lane to make a left. I had the right of way, but when I got too close she pulled across my lane. Full on, no lockup braking still put me into the side of her van, but I walked away from a totaled Sporty. She's pleading not guilty! The officer said she's charged with failure to yield. I wonder if I can get the charge moved up to attempted murder?:madhead

It sounds like I could skip the court date but there is no way I want her getting away with this.

Great idea!!!! Ive thought about it a little and agree it would have been a dangerous move hitting his car with the wrench and that has always been my plan. i have completely reconsidered and now see that a good throw at a safe distance would be much safer for me and still just as affective. thanks alot guys for making me come to my senses.

You obviously remember his plate and vehicle. You will see it again. What goes around always comes around again. Then the choice will be yours to get revenge or not. Revenge is not a good thing when you have two wheels and they have four.

A great tactic is to put a little bag on your risers and fill it with lug nuts. Get in front of him and either bounce one into his grill or toss it over your shoulder. It leaves a nice hole in the grill and, if you are lucky, the radiator when you drop one and if you toss it over your shoulder, it leaves a nice dent in the hood and hopefully a star on his windshield.

Note, of course, that this is a purely theoretical exercise in free speech and I do not now, nor have I ever condoned illegal action of any type. :D :D

I still say revenge is best served cold. And sometimes (I know you're po'd) it's best to just ride off without adding fuel to a fire. I guarantee that as soon as you chucked that wrench two other cagers would have backed up the drivers story and you would have paid in the end.

24th October 2005, 23:04
Glad to hear you are OK. I would agree, throwing the wrench would only piss off the cager and he would be thinkin he should get even. Which would have been bad for you.

On a more serious note, you lost some tools. How are you gonna work on your bike next ride without them?

i hate cops.

Hmmm......if ya spent less time hating them and more time talking to them, you might have found out something that should be very obvious....

Now that you have filed the report...(you did get report number, didn't you?)...
YOU can sign an arrest warrant for improper lane change, at the very least. Down here we'd help you sign one for Assault & Battery with Intent to Kill or Assault & Battery High and Aggravated. All you'd need to do is come in to the station with your report number, give a signed statement that said pretty much what you typed above (not the getting even part, though :shhhh ) and the detective would escort you to the judge so you could sign the warrant.

Give it a shot. Once the warrant gets served, you get your revenge by appearing at his bond hearing and getting a high bond set by describing to the judge (with the same emotion you typed with above...preferably without the :censor , though) exactly how this potential killer looked you right in the eye and tried to run you down. :banana

...but then again....you hate cops, so why even bother to USE them as a tool for revenge and justice. :frownthre

It actually works better on the tempered glass that the side windows are made of. The windshield is laminated glass and designed to resist shattering.

BTW, it only takes a VERY small piece of that porcelain. We practiced it at a seminar I attended :)

I should have said attempted to file a report. The officer came over and i gave him all the info and he ran the tag and it came back registered to a female. He said since he was a male and registered to a female there is no way to issue a warrent. If it came back a male the owner, i would have to appear in front of the majestery and tell my story and he would decide whether to issue the warrent or not. i was ready to go but there was nothing else they could do he said. and there was nothing else i could legally do about it.

If i offended you i apologize.

I would say, that in this case, the officer sh*t you up. Doesn't matter who the car is registered to. All it takes is some effort by an investigator to call 'em up, or make a home visit, and say, "Hey, who was operating your vehicle at about 3pm today." I've got some bad heartburn with what the officer told you. You have the option of taking it higher up the chain until you get some action.

And it takes nothing more than a soft toss to do it too. It will put a nice spider web in the windshields also. I've got a redneck buddy that is into demolition derbys and thats how we take the glass out of his cars. However, I would never think of tossing a handfull of porcelain over my shoulder at a car following me that cut me off. But I might do it without thinking!:p

Hot damn! I would be steaming too. I would have to give it all I had to not go wound the idiot. I had an experience the other where i was in the turning lane getting ready to go left. I looked down to look and see if everything was dry by the rockers, and some dipshits in a mustang came 6in within my head and layed on the horn. Holy crap i was pissed. They better be happy I am passive and beleive in Karma. Stupid sons of a *#&$(!

I'd head over to the P.D. and file the report. If they continue to sh*t you up, you keep calling for a supervisor, then the supervisor's supervisor. Be respectful, but firm. IMO, based your telling of the incident, this guy looked right at you and tried to run you down. That is assault no matter how you look at it.

Once you get a report number, bother the hell out of the assigned investigator and HIS supervisor until they follow up and identify who was driving that car. Once that is done, they may ask you to view a photo line-up. If you can ID the guy, then (the way it's done here) the investigator types the warrant affadavit and takes you to the judge. You swear your statement and the affadavit are true, then you sign the warrant.

I would not let this issue die. I would be such a huge pain in the ass that they would end up working this relatively easy case just to get me off their back. Happens everyday :)

That would be like shooting a cat with an Abrams tank :laugh All you need is a tiny piece of porcelain. First time I ran into it I had stopped a kid that was looking in cars at a bar. Pat down revealed tiny white rocks in the plastic from a cig pack. I thought it was crack at first glance. Then I recognized the writing...it was spark plug porcelain he was using to shatter the windows and steal stuff from inside.

What an A$$! There are a lot of those out there too. I'm glad you didn't get hurt, but more glad that you took the higher road and didn't throw the wrench (and no I'm not Ghandi, I just don't see what good could have come from it had you thrown it). Reacting in anger never has a good outcome. I like Sarge's info, but if you don't do that, at least you can chalk this whole deal up to a learning experience (we learned all kinds of things in this thread). :D But just as important, you gave the rest of us something else to be on the look out for, and all of us that have read this will likely be keeping a closer eye out for jerks like that (and packing small pieces of porcelain, just in case we come across them). ;) Ride safe buddy; that's more important than letting some jackass know that he succeeded in getting under your skin!

Hi.

First off, thank God your ok.
Second, i know this will be time consuming and a real drag, BUT you need to press charges.
If you don't, and he kills someone else, and you could have stopped him, well i dont know how I would be able to handle that.

Now, remember that you are the victim here, and like the Sarg said, be respectful, but firm in your belief that you need Justice.
Go to court, and wear your best suit and tie, and just calmly tell the truth.

Even if they just slap him on the wrist and fine him, you will have the chance to look this a$$hole in the eye and ask him what the hell were you thinking?

You need to do this for two big reasons.
1) You will feel better, as you will get some closure.
2) The life you save maybe your own, or your best friend.

I agree, it's live to ride-ride to live..don't ride to die. Pretty easy killing a biker with a car....I know it's tough but still better to be pissed off and alive than dead. I had incidents where I would like to do some serious harm but when they start to push you off the road you realize how vulnerable you are out there

Great words to remember! You won't be getting even by pissing off a cager; there's nothing EVEN about that fight. Remember that article where a kid on a sport bike cut that woman off on the freeway. She was pissed off and followed them as they exited, rammed him with her car "just to give him a scare," and she ended up killing him. A kid.

i was no more than 8 feet from the car in front of the tributes rear bumper, when the tributes looks right at me and cuts hard right at me into my lane.

I feel your pain Bro. The same thing happens to me way too frequently. They'll be looking right at me, then cut me off. In my case, the problem is they actually didn't SEE me. You know, kind of like hearing but not listening? Too many cagers have become conditioned to only SEE full-sized vehicles. They'll look in the direction where there's a bike, but it just doesn't register in their complacent, self-centered minds. Just the other day an SUV was in the lane next to me. All 4 of it's occupants were flapping their gums on their mobiles. I was right next to the front passenger's window, clear eye-shot with the driver, when they came into my lane. Good thing the 3rd lane was empty, and a 3rd lane at all, otherwise my shit would be toast.

In the case of an asshole intentionally trying to cause you harm, and you did push for an A & B warrant - how could you prove it? Fat chance you'd have a witness, and it be your word against theirs. You're invisible. Ride like it. Getting pissed won't do you a damn bit of good.

This stuff happens too much and seems to be getting worse with time. Glad you didn't make any contact/impact. I quit driving a truck around the beltway for the same reasons. Seems to be a drivin characteristic up in that neck of the woods though. Like Ha! Ha! screw you!, watch me try and run you over. It doesn't matter what you're drivin either. Don't think I would chuck anything at the cagers though. Be kind of like the retaliation penalty in football. Suppose you caused some other cager to swerve and kill an innocent bystander. Two wrongs don't usually add up to right. Could have followed him home though for a little of Sarge's street justice. There again check your math. Don't know if I could afford the legal hassle of the warrant route (time missed from work). Too bad you couldn't get an address from somewhere. Know somebody or hack the DMV computer maybe! But the car is in someone elses name, so you still don't know who was driving. Doubt if that will be the last time ya see that move if you ride or drive very much, especially in northern VA. The ones that do it always look right at ya also! Stay cool and alert! All those sorry bast^rds are in a -I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!-^in hurry to go nowhere. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of these idiots down my way also, just seems worse up there from my experiences. Probably just a timing thing. Wrong place at the wrong time. Think I would just let it go. Every dog has his day.
Ride to Live!
