A-holes seem to be plentiful these days and not restricted to any particular group or society. I have taken to something I never thought I would Have to and that is open carry. Initially my wife and kids were a little shocked but being that there is no shortage of “asshats” these days they have come to accept it and even condone it some.
Several years ago (pre fjr) I was coming home from work on my 76gl1000 and had some Ricky racer redneck wanna-be come off a ramp in his old Chevy pickup with a rifle in the back window get pissed off at me when I honked the horn at him because he never looked to see if it was clear to merge in. He was really po’d and seemed intent on at the least extremely closely riding my azz or just ramming me. I accelerated to triple digits to get away and put a mile or so between us and reduced down to 75-80mph. After a very little bit I seen him coming hard in the rear view So I went back up to 110+ But he was still coming.
It was a crowded 4 lane and lucky for me a guy in a semi realized what was going on and waved me to pull in front of him which I did and pulled over to the berm using the semi as a pick to turn down a side road. The guy in the pickup locked his brakes to try to follow me but the semi driver kept him blocked so he couldn’t, never seen a semi do the things that driver did, simply amazing.
Years ago I would’ve ok to just pullover & go toe to toe but now being older and not so healthy & I ain’t taking no beating,,, well anyway,,,,, back to bikes!
