Well, I'm having another MRI to compare with the last three. If any new injuries the charges increase.

In any case, I chose to prosecute knowing I may lose on the insurance end because scum like that need off the streets. Criminal vs accident, not sure how that all works out or the law, but the way I see it he tried to kill me.

Hmmm, have to look at the pics I took of his car for sticker Smokes, thanks for that tidbit tho.


Time to get a good lawyer - one of those "biker lawyers" (as seen on TV) and go for the max prosecution AND a huge cash reward for you due to the fact that this dumbass scared the crap out of you. You may suffer psychological consequences down the road.

Glad to hear that you keep it right side up and were not seriously hurt.

Do you think he was a gang member? The reason I ask is that we had gotten word in my MC that there was a gang coming into Florida that was running bikes off the road as initiation and intimidation. Nobody had any proof or any evidence to back it up but, it was something we were told to be on the look out for when riding.

Let me know if you need anything we're only a few hours from one and another. Also, my club has a chapter in Sanford that would surely assist a fellow Marine too.

The really sad part is that he will probably get off on suspended sentence or probation unless he has done something similar in the past.

Glad you are OK. That is unbelievable to think that there are people like that in the world. Was there any attempt of an explanation on his part at all?
Anyway, as others have said...prosecute as much as you can. I am pretty sure that it is considered assault with a deadly weapon.
Good luck and take care. Again, glad you were OK.

No lesson here, just that there are people out there who will try to kill you for no reason whatever, other than you are on a bike.


Glad you are ok.

I use to complain about an aggressive driver maybe once a week. Now I see at least two every time I drive.

Everyone of us had better be super aware of our suroundings. As Smoke and others have stated about the "initation requirements" of some club. Fellows that is FACT not BS. They have already made a couple of attempts here in Waco. I just might have to go back to carrying.

Holy crap! Good thing you had the skills to keep on 2 wheels. What was the demographic of the driver?

Wow. That is some story. Awesome that you kept it upright considering it was more than a tap by the looks of your bike. That bastard needs to be shot, dead. No reason to have people like that living.
