I've been thinking of starting a motovlog on YouTube for a few weeks. Seems like a fun thing to do, and I've been recording my rides anyway.
Had a good one last night. Some marked security car (retired Crown Vic Police Interceptor, compete with led light bar) sailed past me in the fast lane, forcing me to wait in the number 2 lane as I approached a truck. Naturally, I ended up behind the rent-a-cop car, and noticed about a 10 mpg increase in fuel economy, and no real buffeting. Seemed like a pretty good deal, so I chilled out behind him for a few miles, until he peeled off to take an exit.
Well, now I'm on the hunt for another 50+ mpg wind blocker and find this pickup, but he's going a lot slower.
Next thing I know, rent-a-cop blows by in the fast lane again!
Sweet! We're back on, baby! I fall back in behind him and now we're cooking with gas!
After a bit, I start to notice a lot of debris coming from him and hitting me. Like confetti or something, I don't know. It's 0400 and very dark out.
Out of the blue, he changes lanes. Thinking something must be in the road, I follow and he SLAMS on his brakes.
Now I'm thinking he hit something in the road or something weird just happened to his car, so I'm quartering behind him and looking for something to come spinning off his car. He's almost stopped in the number 2 lane and I'm not seeing anything. So, I start to go around.
Dude sticks his head out the window and yells something about calling CHP on me or whatever. That was about the time I realized he was pissed and had tried to brake-check me, but I wasn't close enough for it to be an issue.
Anyway, he evidently owns the company he works for, so contacting his boss didn't get me very far.
So, it'll be my first video upload to YouTube.
I'll edit tomorrow and post it up as soon afterward as I can. Channel name is MotoNerd if you want to watch.
