Re:Semi pulled out in front of me 7 Months ago  
Sorry to hear this. I spend the vast majority of my riding time trying to figure out what attack of stupidity I will get to witness from the people around me.
It's a very rare day when I don't have to make some kind of move to avoid an idiot.

So sorry to hear about all of these injuries, but VERY glad that none of you have been killed, or more seriously injured (like Silkentech)

Stay safe !

Truckers are getting really bad. It seems these companies are putting anyone behind the wheel of rigs. I had my class A but gave it up. I see a lot of stupid shit from a lot of truck drivers. They think their driving their freaking mini vans.

Take care. Glad to hear your still kicking with us. Heal quick.





SWIFT driver........Sure Wish I'd Finished Training!


I drive truck and i have seen a real down fall in driver quality. It all happened when the governmeny was paying for commercial driver licenses. So many people signed up and the driving companies just pumpped them out to get the check no matter how bad they were.


Sorry to hear you went down as well. So manu people not watching where they are going

Hope you recover quickly. The e logs the government is forcing on is are making trucks worse. Putting nearly every trucker in America in a rush. Add piss poor training to the equation and these stories may get more frequent.

Man G_Conway, is that not the truth! It's like your under attack all the time. It's like that game of asteroids and we are that little ship in the center.

So sorry to hear about it Jlb76. Hope you heal up quickly and fully. Haven't been on here in a while and it looks like there have been a few accidents lately involving members. Good luck to everyone who's still recovering.

Glad your alive and can talk about it but sorry about the wreck. I hate to ride anywhere around trucks or big PU or SUV's. I always try to get way in front of them ASAP.

Re:Semi pulled out in front of me 6 Months, 4 Weeks ago  
I had a close call last Friday night, Went out for a little cruise just after dark and had been following a car going way under the speed limit for several miles without an opportunity to pass.
They finally signaled a left turn and got onto the turn lane, just as I was accelerating past the car swerved back into my lane. I gunned it and got past them, if I had tried to brake it would have been a for sure crash. At the next light i looked at the girl driving and said "You almost hit me, please pay attention better" then she apologized and said she was a new driver. Meanwhile her dad in the passenger seat was calling me every name in the book and even got out of the car and said he was going to beat my ass, I just got out of there quickly. Crazy for sure!

Sorry to read about the crash, but glad it wasn't worse. Bikes can be fixed or replaced, people cannot. Stay safe out there everyone - the crazies are out there!
