Almost hit.

I've come close to being hit in the past 3 days. I was on 59 making a U-turn on Greenbriar/Sheperd, got back to take the spur into downtown, im going 80 and out of nowhere a black Ram passed REALLY close to me. Sumbitch must've been going 100. It pushed me almost to the next lane where a car was beside me. So i got on his , but what i was i gonna do? i had nothing on me but im gonna have to start packing some change or some ceramic. Cause im not taking anymore chances w/ these dumb that drive here. . Since im always on 59 cause i work in stafford, i was coming home today, and i was making a right turn on 90 to come back up north, this was on my i was making the turn, i looked back at him/her and him/her decides to flip me off. I mean, do us riders have it that bad? .

It's either take off or pull over. Hard decision. Or you could just call us for an escort.

Sad, but very true. I saw a guy in a pick up hoisting a 20 oz while texting the other day.
