Car drivers are soooo f****!!!!!!!!! (my impending foot smash incident)
August 19, 2008 at 10:05 pm #1931
Dang you would not believe this and well i bet i am the first case. well i borrowed a friend’s bike for a day of riding here and there, just as the ‘ol good times would roll… I was merrily swerving and cutting across stopped traffic, of course being attentive to potential pedestrians who are suicidal maniacs who would jump in front of ye as if to ‘boooo’ you… now i will explain the situation… there is a pedestrian crossing and the white stop line a meter or so before the crossing… it is a one-way two lanes and after the crossing, the road would split up in a bend-like curve to the left and to the right. There were people walking on the road, you know ’em and i was arriving before the crossing and my intention was to go to the right bend. obviously with the crowd, i stopped before the white stop line(horizontal), just near the bock white line that divides the one way road (vertical)… i was not too in the middle of both lanes… and logically when i stopped, the area surrounding me is MINE!!!!! well i saw a pickup stopped just mere inches from my rear.. so i just pulled some inches to the front, letting the wayneheads cross the road (i am very courteous..i should say.. but some drivers have had the hello finger wave, rider style…! )…well here’s the big ‘i dunno wot’ of the story.. guess what happened?
The pickup driver was apparently in a haste, so he slowly let go of the clutch to slowly move his pickup and cut to my left (we ride left hand compared to US) and f*** him! I felt something crawling up my left ankle/foot and wondered what the heck….to find his front right wheel trying to crush my bones!!!! i dunno how ‘high’ it climbed but as soon as i felt that climbing sensation, i bumped and banged his hood and signaled him to back away.. he (a damn foreigner) looked at me and waved a ‘what the…?!’ and i pointed to my feet and (the pickup still rolling slooowwwly) i tuck his head to the window and saw the scene, and his wife at the back had both her hands on her mouth exclaiming ‘omg!!!’ (she was beautiful, though..a blond…luck bastard..f*** driver) … he backed away… and asked (still inside) ‘are you ok?’ twice… i looked at my foot, at him, to the front, (at the same time another biker passed my and ‘whispered’ “ask for money!!!”(lol) and again looked at him…(and his wife for a last time ) and rocketed away… Wanted him to have this guilty conscience…
Conlclusion: my foot is intact with no pain… but if i press it with my fingers, then i’d feel it, somewhat…
Well, this is far more f* than someone pulling in front of ye..at least you can brake or find a swerving escaping route, this one you cant even jolt ahead, else ye feet would be like a road troffee…
Btw…ahhhhh the blond… hahaAugust 21, 2008 at 1:15 am #10858fotobitsParticipant

Booze, don’t take this wrong, but maybe motorcycling just isn’t for you. How many accidents is this? Dude, stay safe.

This one wasn’t his fault.August 21, 2008 at 7:48 pm #10899WeaponZeroParticipant
This same thing happened to my dad once. Well, it was similar. He was stopped at a stop light with a truck in front of him. It was a road with no other lanes. He was on his old Honda CB350, which was one of the cheapest bikes money could buy back then. The woman behind him apparently didn’t notice there was a motorcycle in between her and the truck, so she kept going planning to stop a meter or so from the truck. My dad saw her pulling up and because it was a narrow road and the truck was huge and took up all the space there was no escape route except into the oncoming traffic lane to the left. That wasn’t an option so he sat there, hoping she would stop. She didn’t and she crushed my dads bike between her car and the truck. My dad was okay because he dove off the bike and ran off the road when he realized she wasn’t stopping. The woman turned out to be wealthy but did not have insurance, and both my father and the truck driver agreed that as long as she paid for the repairs to the truck out of her pocket and bought my dad a new bike they wouldn’t report the incident. My dad ended up getting a brand new Honda 400-Four Cafe’ Racer that year…August 21, 2008 at 7:55 pm #10900RidleytheRedParticipant
Glad he didn’t get hurt. it’s gotta be pretty scary regardless.August 21, 2008 at 8:44 pm #10903
yea sir, you are right… if my biker senses were +/- ok(we have it ey ), i felt something bad gana happen but it was not too late; the tyre did not roll over but kind of warned me ‘hey watch out, m gana roll over ye foot’…and i bet i saw him picking his nose!!!!!! bastard…

it has been a few, only physical (excluding engine wrecks) but i acknowledge than a few individuals have told me so (but they no nothing about problems on bikes and gear/protection) but i will not give up. i mean i am glad all these has happened on my small bike… i take all these positively, as a sign. For example my 1st bang was for awareness, (in between were engine problems, for me to know the inside and working process of 4T bikes), second big bang(dog) was for more better gear and the rest, to be more aware of the car drivers… who would have thought about this incident other than a driver cutting in front of ye?
If you (not you but in general) are cooly riding your bike w/0 probs or incidents is because of your bike’s power. 1st-ly you have power to evade or keep up with traffic (car not passing too near to you and etc) and 2nd-ly you know the bike has power and can use it evertime you want, compared to 70cc bike which you constantly have to rev up and still it does not move at all. That is what i noticed. And everyone out there (being polite of course) if you think the car drivers are f* creeps, then that’s part of what they are here!!! everything sucks here..the road, people, cars… that is why i am moving away, country swap but thanks Budd…
PS: i assure it did not roll over my foot but warned me it gana do so..lol… (i just love biking…how can i get off it? ~sign~)

yea absolutely right, though i could have taken the whole lane for me but who would know he was picking his nose and not realizing he was letting off the clutch of his vehicle…lol

dang lucky him!!!! glad he was ok and that these car squids exist elsewhere hey i know this bike!!! this bike is awesome! yeah! i have seen a guy riding it (with no gear of course) and my mechanic have two of it!! well one in 80% state and one with chassis and tyres only. He said this bike was jackass to ride but he is not able to get parts for it.. sad it is rusting at his place…
but this story is scary indeed; she did not even see a rider in front of her!!

Dude, you have just had a really bad run of luck. It is good that you are learning something from each one though.

He liked it because it was different. Back then everyone had either a Kawasaki 2 stroke Triple or honda CB750. The 400Four Cafe Racer was something different but still great.August 22, 2008 at 5:29 pm #10972
I use Rotella 5w40 synthetic. It sounds like the bike thanked me when I switched. much smoother. I would have replied but I am stuck with IE6 here at work.
