I live in the country and ride my bike on country roads. I only been riding for about 3 months and on 3 different occasions some low life punk decides to slow down before approaching me and then floor the accelerator and leave me in a cloud of toxic black soot and smoke. These were 3 different trucks that did this to me and this makes me very angry. Sad thing is, I am a certified diesel truck garage tech and luckily for these guys, none of them are customers of mine.
Since I am in this trade, I know the type of people they are that drive these trucks. Usually younger redneck uneducated hillbillys that drive a huge truck like this to compensate for thier little packages. Most of them cannot afford to drive these huge pieces of junk and cannot afford to fix them unless they become crash course mechanics themselves. Most of the trucks are rusted out hulks with bald, underinflated tires and are falling apart.
My question is, how does someone deal with this situation?
Get a Go Pro camera and record every ride hoping to get a lic plate number next time it happens and then report them to our already understaffed Sherrif Dept?
Call the police and hope an officer is in the area and can investigate the matter and catch the idiot?
Carry heat and empty my clip into the back window and carry a shovel with me?
Has this ever happened to any of you guys? What do you do about it?
