What is your most bizarre, funny, creepy(?) rider story?
I saw this on another forum and was pissing my pants reading through all the messages. For example, there was this story about a diner stop in west Virginia that made me wonder if the movie "Wrong turn", where a group of teenager gets tracked by a gang of inbred mutants, is that far from reality. Although I have a laughable 500 miles lifetime rider experience with my 1st bike (a 2010 V, of course), I got a few incidents that were unusual.
So I’ll go first:
I was coming in a long curve and was trying to practice my outside-inside-outside cornering (that’s right, I did learn something at the rider’s school…) when I noticed a Harley biker coming in the opposite direction. Due to the curve layout, he did not see me right away. So when he finally noticed me, he had sort of a “reflex” move to put his left hand on his thigh, which is, as I understand it, their way of saying f*** you to all the non-HD riders out there. He was a young guy by Harley standard, maybe late 30’s, and his bike was either brand new or very close to. So as he impulsively tried to put his hand on his thigh, in a curve, the little-too-slick-for-my-own-good pirate started to fishtail and he eventually had to apply the brakes hard (although he was not going fast at all). I saw him coming to a close stop and then blasting away in my mirror. I really felt sorry for the guy. Not that he came close to crash, but that all they seems to get out of their bike is the feedback they try to get from others by putting on their crap face everywhere they go. They really look miserable on their glorified and overpriced air compressors. Anyway, that’s it. There is this other “road rage” incident involving a cabby, but that’s boring (they are on road rage mode every time anyway.)
So what’s your story?
