Riders in the Northwest - Watch out!

This may have been an isolated event, but worth putting a warning out there. I'll make a long story as short as possible. Last night my bike broke down on 249. I just needed a bolt, which was brought to me. Battery died since the hazards were on and the bike was stuck in 6th gear so I couldn't leave it started, so we had to jump start the bike. Had a car parked on the shoulder with the two bikes parked behind it (battery is in the trunk). No cars were in the right two lanes at this point, only a car in the left lane about a mile down. We were as far onto the shoulder as possible when the car that was in the far left lane quickly swerved into the right lane, came 3 feet into the shoulder and came inches away from taking all of us out. The person on the bike closest to the road was able to jump over the bike and get out of the way just in time.

The car was a dark blue new model Mustang with HIDs, very dark tinted windows, and a loud aftermarket exhaust. Unfortunately we could not get a plate number or description of the driver, but we did try.... the Mustang disappeared going about 130 through a residential area off of Old Louetta just south of Spring Cypress.

Right before all this happened, there was another shady car that pulled in front of the car we had parked on the shoulder asking if we were the person who crashed on a bike. When we said no, they sped off. Could have been unrelated, but still strange.

The good news, no bodily harm other than a scraped knee. The bad news, both of my pristine bikes are now scratched up. :( And from now on loctite will be my friend...

It was a very strange night and sounds like other stuff went down in that area.

The cops were notified and were keeping an eye out for the Mustang driver. Be safe out there!

that's nuts

There must be something in the water or the moon is jacked up because people have been crazier than normal on the road the last couple of weeks. Glad they didn't get you.

Thank you both! I will keep that in mind if I am ever stranded again. At least this time it was an easy fix. We were close to home, so waiting for the bolt was about the same amount of time it would have been for someone to show up in a truck and get the bike loaded up.

At the point in which we were ready to start the bike, the cables were right there and push starting wouldn't have gotten us out of there any faster.
