Not to derail your thread, but most drivers don't have a clue what's going on around them. I've been pulling my boat down Beach boulevard and some ass monkey whips in front of me and slams on brakes. For some reason they believe that I can stop as fast as they can.

Yeah, you can yell about almost getting hit by crazy drivers and so on and it is most certainly true. It has ZERO to do with looking for bikes. It has to do with paying attention. I have people swerving towards my jeep, pull out in front of my jeep, hell just got ass ended in my jeep 2 months ago. Bikes will certainly have this happen but it's not because they are bikes. I'll have more sympathy for bikes when I stop seeing them pull wheelies down the highway, driving between cars in traffic, zipping around back and forth through traffic where they "fit" not at a safe distance but because there is 10 feet between me in the right lane and the next car in front of me in the left lane. Sorry, but I see more dumbasses on crotch rockets than anything else.

And glad you are safe.

youre right, ive had people pull out in front of my truck when i was 10 ft away, didnt see a big truck.crotch rocket get u killed fast, they are faster than most young riders can think. couple years ago a navy e 5 left a bar on garden, he had about 4 beers, he goosed it was running about 80 when car pulled out, he hit side of cars. most touring riders ride safe. when i started riding one of my friends told me, you have to drive like every car is going to take a shot at you. i dont ride mine much anymore since i got on disability, but i cant let it go.I have about 30,000 bucks in engine mods and chrome.its a 2004 wide glide i bought new.screaming eagle big bore kit, and a lot more

When we first moved down here in 94 my ex had a bike people all the time would pass him on the right at times I would be two or three cars back and would have loved to chase them down and let them know what the heck were they thinking. I right now drive two different vehicals,,, one being a 94 DG Ram Van that has a lot of weight,,, some insurance co. will not even insure me because of that,,,, and I have idiots pull out in front of me not realizing if I hit them,,,, they are gone. Thank GD my Dad taught me how to drive and always be checking my mirrors and everything around me always paying attention to everything all around me. Now there are so many people out there, cell phone talking, texting, not paying attention,,,,, makes me sick. What to do?
