Thread: Close call on the scoot

    Close call on the scoot

    I was out on the Road King this afternoon when a carload of punks pulled up next to me at a stoplight, crowding into my lane. I gave them a quick glance and then ignored them. Once the light changed, the driiver continued to crowd me and then drifted in front of me. I laid on the horn but backed off. I got a couple of middle fingers for the horn.

    At the next light, I pulled up behind them but stopped about two car lengths back. Suddenly, a big guy got out of the front passenger side, and a smaller guy got out from the rear drivers side. They started walking towards me. I gave the smaller guy a quick glance and then locked eyes with the big guy. I reached into my vest and put my hand on my gun. The big guy recognized the signifigance of my hand in the vest. His eyes got big and he and he yelled at the other guy to get back in the car, now!!!.

    When the light turned green, the driver took off like a bat out of hell. I didn't get a plate number but I was just happy to see them go.

    Thats part of the reason i used to keep a small bag full of ball bearings and/or pieces of broken spark plugs on the left side of my bars. When ya get agressive drivers like that, one piece flipped over your shoulder does wonders on a windshield. In most cases it would just be 'some road debrie that the back tire musta kicked up".

    So you could claim duress if you shot them when more than one jumped you. But what about when it was down to the last one coming at you? Could you shoot them still, since its now one on one and no weapons are visible? Just fuel for thought.

    I ride and carry as well. I am glad that you are ok. It is unfortunate that these people arent considered domestic terrorists and fair game with no bag limit.

    I also think that being a gang member should be a signed death warrant. I guess there is a reason I am not president.

    Glad that worked out for you, but I would caution others not to try it with an empty vest, just to bluff your way free. If they should call that bluff you might be in trouble.

    As for "Gang Members" being marked for death, I gotta ask...what constitutes a "Gang"? La Raza? MS 13? What about the Hells Angels? Mongols? Patriot Guard Riders? Also, who decides? Maybe some politicians would decide that NRA membership constitutes a "Gang". Where are the fences here...where would this end? Unfortunately, while I'm sympathetic with your feelings, it's not so cut-and-dried as that.

    Glad you are all right..
    I've had a few incidences (Usually young people) mess with me on the bike.. Nothing overly aggressive but it has happened. I did have an older gentleman ask me if I wanted to pull over after we had some choice words after he almost cut into my wife in the middle of a pack of motorcycles.. (I didn't have my permit at the time)


    NOTE.... DO NOT THROW SPARK PLUGS... They are great at breaking windshields, but they are also hazardous to tires... IF you choose to throw something, make sure it is something that is not going to mess up someone elses day due to the jerk behind you... I have personally witnessed a spark plug through a 15 passenger van tire.. IF it will go threw that, a car tire should be easy and who knows with a M/C tire??

    As to the question quoted above - Are you asking if you can shoot the last of 4 people coming out of the car (Assuming you have shot the 1st three)?.. I think this is highly unlikely.. for the most part.. You drop the 1st guy, everyone else is going to scatter.. not always, but on the average.. If you have taken out 2 or 3.. the last man is going to have plenty of time to consider the worth of his life and get a view of his former friends...

    It just always amazes me when I see people screwing with bikers..
    I mean regular people.. teens, grandpa's, etc....
    Do they have a deep desire to get their Asses kicked, or worse??
    Were they high school bullies and they miss the good ol' days??
    It just amazes me.. As my wife would say.. The Moronic Masses..

    Never had a run-in with a cage (4 wheeler) while I was on a bike - but always a first time! Yes, I always have a "friend" with me when I ride; would feel naked without it. Riders in Arizona usually don't have that problem; being an open-carry state, lots sport holstered guns right under their MC jacket - cars give them a wide berth. Discretion is a good thing - dueling with a car with you on two wheels can be hazardous to your health.

    My oldest brother years ago, back in the 70's,was coming back from the range on his bike when a guy in a Cadillac tried to run him off the road. He put a couple shots through his radiator and the last he saw of the guy he was pulling off the side of the road.

    I think you're warning others, in which case I agree 100%. But I was not bluffing. My hand was on a Sig P238.

    EKTAR: it is cut and dry.... don't you see the difference between ms-13, laraza, hell's angels, mongols, and the patriot guard riders? lol Im pretty sure the patriot guard riders do not attempt to hurt others or attack this country (like laraza with the whole give us back texas stance). i don't know about anyone else but i don't consider the patriot guard riders a gang.
