Angry Close Call with Idiot Motorcycle

So its Harley Motorcycle night in the city tonight, they use the night to drink heavily and ride, two things that do not mix at all. (I like motorcycles don't get me wrong I own two of them, Not Harleys) So I am headed home after leaving work and grabbing a bite to eat around 930. I'm on the main road doing 45 in a 40 pretty decent traffic for that time with a lot of bikes. I was cruising pretty good hitting all the green lights taking in the sounds of the car and radio. When I approach the next green light. As I am approaching the intersection in the lane that has the yield about 40 feet in front of me I hear this bike down shift and get heavy on the throttle and flys right out in front of me, I missed hitting him and possibly killing them (Weren't wearing helmets) by 3 feet. All in what seemed slow motion I knew I had about a car length to get in to the middle lane ( I Constantly observe my surroundings all the time for situational awareness). I swerved into the middle lane, downshifted and got on the gas (to avoid cutting off the other car) as he about lost control of his bike and passenger. We both caught the next light and its a burly couple on a Wide Glide, she begins chewing my ass out and then SPIT on my car WTF If it had not been for the way I reacted they both would have replaced the Roundel as my hood ornament. I just got done cleaning the car and can hear all their dam bikes while I'm sitting on the deck and its pissing me off

Sorry for the rant

Tell me about it, I can deal with the yelling but spitting on the car!!! It took everything I had to not get out and punch her in the face. That crosses the line disgracing my baby like that

+1. Even better that his girl decides to spit on your car. A real "classy" couple, LOL. I am sure the booze had NOTHING to do with it.

Should have got out, pushed them and the bike over, jumped back in your car and left.

damn dude, that's nuts. You were pretty strong not to get out of the car and do something-that wouldn't have been good.

WOW! Sorry to hear this and damn glad your aviation skills have taught you to drive with complete awareness of everything around you or the outcome would have been different.

Glad to hear you and that fine M3 of yours are safe!

Cheers,

Chris

I find the "kicking their ass" comments entertaining. In Texas there is a reasonably good chance that the guy you're approaching has a gun........

I've seen you around never in the M though. Thursday afternoon I saw you on Carlise road and have seen your car at Chilis before. Not too many E9xs around

True, but it also could have sent them home in a body bag and possibly total my car. Its beyond me how they even make it out of the city, they bring in the whole force for these nights. You would think they would have some type of checkpoint.

This is what I thought last night, at minimum a knife and I'd be the on in the middle of the road.

Props to you for avoiding an accident and exercising restraint. I'm sure it wasn't easy... But as others have said, you never really know what someone else has on them, etc. That being said, I probably would have reached for my water bottle or something to throw at the dirty ho!
