What a ugly bike... I think that guy was just clueless. His posting was Incredibly long, trying to mask that he has absolutely no idea what he is talking about.

A 2008 sold for 5k on ebay, 0 miles NEW.... Although these bikes are awesome, the resale value with the economy isn't so great.

Ray we had another episode of September 14, 2008 last night. Tree limbs down everywhere in the yard. Power went out at 630pm last night and came back on at 1035am this morning. No damage to the house, just a big mess like you saw last time in 2008. There is one big limb that fell close to the fence in the back yard that I will have to use a chain saw to remove. I hope everyone else that experienced this weather yesterday is doing okay.

I was down in Rabbit Hash Kentucky today talking to a friend that rides the area Kentucky roads as I do. He told me what took place on KY10 & KY22. These are two roads that I ride on a regular basis. Watch this video on what happened that day between two motorcyclists and one inbreed idiot in a pickup truck.


This thread has alot of good discussion on the subject from all sides.

OK, lots hear some discussions about this incident - LocalRiders.com

"The pickup driver was arrested for reckless driving, DUI and the DA is using the video to consider reckless endangerment and possibly attempted murder charges. If convicted of all charges the pickup driver could get up to 24 years in jail. That's unlikely but he will likely see a felony conviction and jail time for his life threatening antics. Jerk."

He's going to pull that some day and get shot. No bother, he very likely deserves it. I have had cars/trucks accelerate trying to keep me from passing before. Not sure what their motive is. If it is because they feel I am riding unsafe, they are doing same by trying to speed up and stay ahead. Some people are just asshats... :beating

Had a buddy ran off the road once by a car, and when he came alongside the car he started yelling at the guy. The guy laughed and mocked him, so on his bike he forced a CAR off the road and then got off his bike and proceeded to tell the guy if he opened the door he would beat him to death with his helmet. Eventually the stand down ended, but I bet that guy needed clean underwear after that...

Road rage is an ugly, ugly thing...

"OKAY ...... IT IS TIME TO BAN 18 WHEELERS ON THE DRAGON. This morning a young rider died on the Dragon when a flat bed big rig completely entered the rider's lane in a curve. We have been fighting for years telling officials this was going to happen. The best we got were a couple of signs that truckers pay no attention to. These big rigs should be required to have front and rear escorts if they do have to cross US 129 and they should be limited to early morning or late afternoon. Want to see what we've been posting?"

Got me one of those fancy Skur carbon fiber tank cap covers. Much better than the ProGrip sticker that was on it. Wish he'd bevel the rider side of the outer ring instead of cutting so much material out. Looks like it was done by mistake at first glance, but of course it is to let the gas cap swing open...

Wow! What an idiot! That is bull shit! Why would anyone try and do something like that on purpose. I hope he gets the full 24 years.
Wrong thread?
