Just saw this story about a sportbike rider needing to defend herself while riding and thought you all might be interested - Motorcycle Rider Defends Herself With Handgun in Road Rage Attack - The Truth About Guns
That happened a while back and we discussed it then, way before you joined the forum.
I believe the interview with the woman is new though, also interesting but scary.Well, ****! Sorry for the re-post!
Mod, feel free to delete!
I've been on the receiving end of stuff like that more times than I can count long before I even started riding. People have followed me home, tried to put me into concrete barriers, threw things at my car, brake checks, physical altercations at red lights (locked those doors!!!), you name it. Something about driving a smart car just really seemed to piss people off, and it's not like I had any stickers on the car aside from an Xbox logo or an Apple logo.
Then, being a woman introduced a whole slew of brand new creeps who used the uniqueness of my cars to stalk me. I had become pretty well acquainted with where the closest police stations were as I've found them to be the best place to lose my stalkers.
There really seems to be more "crazy" than ever out there! I've really had to work on my temper since learning to ride and try to just get away from the zombies whenever possible. Sometimes I can't help but throw up a friendly gesture... but I've gotten better! :grin:I've recently had two road rage incidents where someone nearly rear ended me while I was in a cage. Totally their fault.
Both times they went NUTS at ME!. One tried to run us into other traffic then stopped his car in front of us in a center lane of the freeway and got out as if to come 'get me'.
It's a good thing, for me as well as him, he got back in his car..... This is Texas after all.
And let me guess... the fine must be paid directly to RonK??? :grin:--
You'll probably just get a hefty fine and maybe 3 months suspension.
Here's what ya need in todays messed up world. I made this from dead cow to finished product in my shop. It's a 'Clam style' concealed carry and open carry Holster. Shown is my Sig Sauer P320, 9 mm. semi-auto pistol.:grin:
Wow Sam, that's mighty generous of you. Thank You.So are you offering to make and send one to all legal CCW holders on this site? That might get expensive for you. You may have to put off your next bike buy by a few months.
Here's a question I've wondered about Sam. Is what I point to here still called a thumb break? I think it should be called something else used this way and it might be. So I ask one who should know since you made it. Rip-cord or rip-strap maybe. It just can't still be a thumb break can it?Here's what ya need in todays messed up world.
