near miss

My girl and I were riding with a friend of mine Saturday. He decided he wanted to turn left from the second lane and was jst going to debo the car in the left lane. I went to the next street to turn left. Blinker on and turning next thing I know he is flying past me on the left, the way I'm turning. I had to swurve back right to avoid the collision. This is a friend of mine who hit a large farm animal at a high rate of speed. Guess he will never learn. I will probably not be riding with him much any more.

+1.

I kicked a former riding buddy to the curb when he passed me as I was passing a car on a two lane narrow highway in the rain. I had no idea he was going to fly by me (within inches) on my left just as I was pulling past the drivers door of the car I was passing.

Strange... He seemed to be riding fine before that. Sorry to hear that happened.

Sounds like you need to start hanging out with someone less crazy. Glad this didnt turn out any worse.
