Coming up to Shepard Elevated my buddies split off to the right and I head to Kirby.

Out of nowhere that r8 comes FLYING by me and PURPOSEFULLY clips my fronttire, but i still maintained control.

Well his dumbass doesnt realize there is sprinklers on the upcoming curve, starts fishtailing, loses control, drives through the side boulevard and smacks someones property wall.

He then pulls back into the road, stumbles out of his car. So i proceed to get off the bike parked behind him, keeping my helmet on, dude is dazed. First thing i do is reach in the car, yank the keys and chuck them in the middle boulevard and call 911.

Cops come, dudes wasted and bleeding from his head...arrested him and towed the vehicle.
withought the sarcasm or smartassness:

This really is a Cool story bro...

Glad you were able to keep your wits about you while on and off the bike.


That guy is ...

TO be commended for your driving skills Good Job,, For maintaining your composure even better. Clipping your bike you should get a new tire out of that. Unbelievable story. Do you attribute the control to track days or what? Follow up on this guy before he heads to nigeria.

I'm wondering the same thing. "purposefully" hit your front tire, but didn't knock you down. Sounds like a lot of skill for a drunk guy.

Glad you are here to talk about it.

You can be the safest rider day or night. will happen if the wrong people are sharing the same road.

every other driver out at 1:30 am is either drunk or impaired on drugs so why are you riding at that time?
