Last night. F-ing F F....

So get this peeps.

Last night I was outside my house, taking pix of my bike @
o2oo hours.

I park my bike on the road, with my car behind it, highbeams as light source to bike.

Some yahoo in a pickup truck comes around the bend, sees me crouching with my camera and tripod.... and decides to "scare" me by driving towards me.

I don't flinch, as I didn't think buddy would actually try to hit me. Then right after he passes me, I hear BANG!

My first reaction was to carry my camera stuff off the road and then make sure my little brother was okay (he was helping me take pix).

I look at my car, and fcuker broke my side mirror. I wanted to chase him down, but my gutless brother wouldn't let me. I knew better than to chase him on the bike as A) I had no helmet, B) it's a lost cause playing bumper-car with a huge pick up.

What a FCUKED up world we live in, where a man can't even take pix without being harassed. Fug me!

....Why does this SHIfT always happen to me.

Be fast or be last.

Re: Last night. F-ing F F....

That sucks dude! Glad you guys are alright that is the most important thing. I don't think I would have had the same restraint you showed, I think I would have grabbed the nearest rock jumped on the bike and chased that fuker. Did you call the cops?

Re: Last night. F-ing F F....

An older truck. Prolly Ford. Old like 80s. Two tone, White-ish (beige) and brown. It was 2am, I was just goofing around w/ camera, having a good time w/ my brother (who's visiting from Milwaukee), not bothering anyone. hell we were whispering to each other the whole time in fear of waking up neighbours.

The other problem is that he would know where I live and would probably F up my crap afterwards anyway. That's really the only reason why I showed restraint. Didn't call the cops as it wasn't critical enough to do so. No other damage than a shattered side mirror - housing okay. No scratches even.

I would have called the cops on a hit-run if he had hit my car.

Dude, there are f*cked up people everywhere. I believe it's all in how they're raised. Just like gas prices, there's nothing you can do.

2 in the morning eh?
Do you know that drunk drivers are attracted to red lights? That they often smash right into them?
Consider yourself lucky that you're not dead for your complacency.

Point taken. Please don't ignore big trucks headed for you, even if you think they are joking. Those are bad odds.

Re: Last night. F-ing F F....

Not only should you tell everyone on the internet your intensions, but also making a video tape of the revenge would do wonders for your case in court.


I know you're pissed right now. But after everything is said and done, it was only a mirror.

yeah and besides, your mirror on his side panels probably did a LOT more damage. It will look like a long streaking dent at any local body shop.

Nah, it's cool, just letting me vent is therapy enough

A VW board suggested I take pix of the vehicle, but come on, it's a Nikon FA on manual exposure, not much to be had w/o at least a flash (which I didn't have.)

What I shoulda done was chase him down to get his plates.
