Got scared pissless yesterday!

Usually when I get scared on a bike it was because I did something stupid with my right wrist or because some little old grayhair in a Buick pulled out of nowhere into my path. But, yesterday my wife and I jumped on the bikes to make a run into the Dallas/Mid Cities area. There is a nice 20 mile stretch of road that connects our town with I-35 and I was buzzing along minding my own business.

First thing I hear is a loud motor right (literally) on top of me (heart instantly jumps to throat) then I see the shadow as the crop duster strafes directly over the top of me. I'm sure that sucker is still laughing. Good thing for him the 10R didn't have wings I would have gone straitway and shot his butt down......right after I stopped and dried off my seat and changed skivies. Wuff

I've seen pics of small aircraft crashing onto roads and taking out vehicles. I've always thought that there would be no way to avoid that if it came from the side/behind you. You can watch out for other vehicles, but a plane? It's the most basic manifestation of "If your number's up, your number's up!" So what I'm saying is, I'm sure I would have sh*t my pants.

Hunt him down and ask for a re-match. A crop duster should not be passing up a 10R. hahahaha

Fred S: That was brilliant, gotta be a frustrated Zuki rider. Nevertheless I really would like to have an rematch...I hate to let that go unanswered.

Cheers, Wuff

Need to start carrying a gun with you so next time you can fire at him and he'll think twice about buzzing people.

"Any man who says he is an AMERICAN, but something else also, isn't an AMERICAN at all.
We have room for but one flag, the AMERICAN FLAG .... We have room for but one language here, and that is the ENGLISH LANGUAGE...
And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the AMERICAN PEOPLE" TR
