To be clear...he and I were not the only vehicles on the road. Cars in all 3 lanes. Snuck up...no. He must have been hauling in the fast lane and crossed over 2 lanes to touch me. He had to get in front of other cars to even get to the right.
Glad you made it through. That is why I always scan my mirrors often. At night even more often. I've had some close cslls. Nothing like yours blanco.

Future BORC

With so many haters wanting to snuff them out, and not enough bikes to get away ... This might be what the future looks like for BORC.

it was an SDRC hitman yes sir I am sure of it. however they failed again. you ride in SDRC territory they make you crash, this is just another way for SDRC to try to get ahead of the BORC. It is not working

Might not have mattered, but that's one reason I stick with the factory tail lights.

crazy. glad you're here with us.

not to minimize your experience, but if the car was that close to you, is it possible you were feeling some kind of gust of air against your leg as opposed to part of the car?

80-90 is what the traffic was doing. Speed limit is 60 there but I was keeping flow of traffic speed. If the road is desolate...usually rolling PSL becasue I do not want to be cop bait. If I was in the mood to assault the PSL I have been know to move waaaaayyyy faster through that corridor.

I can only assume he was drunk, hauling and was moving over lanes? Never even saw the car till it touched me. He darted back to the left back into his lane...I slowed cause it scared the out of me..and he hauled off of the Huffmeister exit. That was about as close as you can get to a vehicle without actually being a statistic! FAWK!

So this question will come up...why didnt you follow him...try to kill him etc?

Did not have a gun...he may have one in Texas and I do not want to get shot. I am assuming he was drunk and I am not interested in a situation escalating into SUV vs. Biker part 2. I was not injured and just goes to show you that anything can happen on the road. I could have been really up and had no clue it was coming..it was just that random.
My only question: at 90 mph, how are you not aware a car is overtaking you?
