You guys won’t believe this shieeet.........
I was minding my own damn business, going to meet my dad for a Sunday morning ride today (he’s got a new SV650). I came down a local (empty) two lane road with one red light about 1/2 mile away at the next intersection. I was actually booking right along (as usual).....with little wheelies in first and second as I was leaving the last stop sign. I was certainly NOT being a slouch at the throttle....and there was no one else around (or so I thought). As I’m slowing down for this next signal while I was in the right lane, just slightly left of center (where I was from the beginning to avoid the oil spots), all of a sudden, this ARSHOLE comes outa nowhere and wants MY LANE....evidently to make a right turn as I later surmised. Just before I came to a complete stop, this dude (in a late model MBZ...something like a CLK-500) comes right up to my butt and TAGS ME!!! Pushed me THREE FEET INTO the intersection!!!
I turned around to see who the hell this was (coulda been a “buddy” who “overtapped”?) and this turd FLIPS ME OFF....then drives around my left side, just missing me AGAIN....and then FLOORS it through the intersection....which was STILL RED!!! As soon as I got the GREEN (I just COULD NOT BELIEVE this was happening to ME!), I chased this fooker wheeling all the way up to within about 5 car lengths of him....all he musta seen was the underside of my bike getting bigger and bigger in his rear view. As soon as I get close, this ASS INSTANTLY “Flips A Bitch” RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!!! Now he’s going THE WRONG WAY.....so I U-turn around the center concrete median and chase him while I’m on the CORRECT side of the street. I easily caught up to him where he FAB’s AGAIN (NOW he’s going the right way!) So, I make another U-turn around the center island, going the correct direction and catch him again.
This FOOKER now turns into the wrong side of the street AGAIN (thank GOD there was no traffic on a Sunday morning).....and starts doing BURNOUT DOUGHNUTS to throw me off as to which direction he’s gonna go. This DICK thinks he’s a driver for FAST & FURIOUS or something.....and he’s got a girl in the car with him....whose face is as white as a sheet!!!!
After about THREE of these “spinning moves”, I got caught (trying to be on the legal side of the road) coming too close to one of the center islands at a break between them. This ASS then makes TWO MORE doughnuts and almost tags me again as I was getting close to the beginning of the next island. I stopped just INCHES from the curb with my wheel fully cocked to the right and....you guessed it....DROPPED MY BIKE!!! This TURD then escapes at FULL THROTTLE on the WRONG SIDE of the street AGAIN....all the way to the next damn signal...1/4 mile away!!!!
I just could NOT BELIEVE this shieeet! With YEARS of riding under my belt, I have NEVER seen this kind of irresponsible action before!!! Well, with so much adrenaline flowing, I literally threw my bike up off me and tried to start it....no go....bike just kept saying “failed start”.....for about the next looooong minute as I watched this ASS speed off. There must be a “timer” in the Aprilia ECU that once tripped by the tip-over-sensor, prevents the bike from starting for some pre-determined length of time. Oh well, bike finally starts, this ASS is loooong gone, and I FINALLY make it over to my dads house.
Check out my bike and ONLY the right Lockhart slider and Sato peg were scratched.....my C/F pipe escaped damage COMPLETELY, as well as the radiator, tank and ALL other major components (except the right side mirror). Evidently, he only hit my tire when he bumped me....and NOT my cans......UNFOOKINGBELIEVEABLE !!!!!!!
Soooo, if it wasn’t for the Satos, my slick 63mm C/F right side can woulda been TOAST.....and the same exact thing can be said for those Lockhart sliders. Since the sliders are about 1-1/2 times the length of the stock white Aprilia POS’s, it saved the radiator, tank, bar ends (go figure....oh, I was under there somewhere too), and everything else but the right side mirror (NBD there). In all the excitement, never got his plate number either.......
Well, I guess I’ll be ordering some more Lockhart stuff (they’re Honda 929 sliders) and a new mirror (any consensus on better ones yet???) Check it out.....and DO NOT trust those stock white Aprilia sliders to do shieeet!
In hind sight, I had soooo much adrenaline pumping that I don’t know what I would done IF I caught that guy.....he either woulda run over me....or we’d both be in jail by now.....but I woulda DEFINITELY fooked up his car in the process (possibly my bike and ME too). So, I guess that little ECU “time out”, was all of that.....
