Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Fight with a guy on a Harley

hey Guys,

I got into a little fight with a bunch of bikers (those fat snobs riding their Harleys with their fat girlfriends in the back) today. They came from behind and give me the "gun it" treatment as I was coming to a yellow light. They were going to pass the red light but because there were 4 of them the guy at the front obeyed traffic laws and stopped. I slowly pull up along their right hand side, somewhat pissed. When I stop my bike, my tires spitted out a punch of pebbles, hitting the nicely finished paints of the two harley guys at the front. It was unintentional so I didn't say anything, although I laugh a little on the inside. Then, my throat guy dry, so I spatted down the road. It just happened that some wind out of nowhere blew my spit on one biker's right arm. He should be wearing a shirt rather than just some dam leather vest. Anyway, the guy got pissed and started coming toward me cussing. He pushed me off my bike, in the middle of traffic with a bunch of people looking. I got up, pulled my bike to the sidewalk, and yell as loud as I could, "Kill me Mother#@#" or I won't let you off for this." The guy started to get scared and hopped on his bike when the light turned green. I grabbed his helmet, trying to pull him off the bike but he just rode away. Next time, I'm going to bring a frame bump for instances like this one.

please don't. your whole story sounds like a big case of assumptions and miscommunication.

I have to agree.
Though as a motorcyclist myself, I can't stand these boobs in the 'Acme Tough Guy' kit anymore. Fortunately they're killing themselves frequently enough that it's a self solving issue in many cases.

I lol'ed at this story. It sounds like everything that could go wrong did go wrong. If i were one of the guys behind him who saw the whole thing, I would've gotten a good laugh out of it.

Multi-tools are very persuasive flying at 60mph, even more so if you stick out the allen keys.

Maybe when he posted this. It would explain the cringe inducing grammar. What about you?

That happened to me once. Almost exactly as you described. But when the biker came for me I said "look man, we settle this in the street!". We went down to the quite industrial area and raced for pinks. I totally dropped him. I still have that Harley.

I just burst out laughing on three seperate occasions reading this thread. I especially liked the "You spit on a guy and he got pissed????...go figure?!?!" comment. The badass camp one was pretty good too. Sometimes this forum is obnoxious...and then there are threads like this that are pure entertainment.

The origional post reminds me of the "when keepin it real goes wrong" skit on the Chappell Show.
