Close Call... - June 8, 2007, 03:45 PM

I'm headed home today and I get off 66, doing 70-75 - I usually naintain speed or coast down the ramp since there's no real reason to get on the brakes until the bottom... except there was a stupid f@#% woman driving up the ramp going the WRONG WAY!!! It took me a second to register what was happening...

I got on the brakes and swerved to the shoulder and she swerved the same way... I was thinking "this is not going to end well" so I swerved hard back the other way, to the other side of the ramp (the ramp is at least 30' wide) and, I dont know what the fuck she was thinking but she swerved towards me again. At this point my front tire is chattering and sliding and I'm still doing 30-40mph, and I barely clear her front bumper, it was less than a foot. I stop on the side of the road and he continues on up the ramp - I dont think she realized she was going the wrong way until she got to the highway and then, she turns around and comes back. I chased after her yelling with my middle finger in the air, but of course she didnt stop.


Ugh. I was on the side of the ramp for 15-20 minutes trying to gather myself up so that I could go home - I thought about the rider that got killed recently by someone going the wrong way on 395.


State cop rolled by, looked at me and kept on going... jackass

Ugh. Fuck. Way too close.

With carbon knuckles on my gloves, its probably a good thing she didnt stop. I have a pretty long fuse, but I had just about lost it when I was running after her.

Some women.... and male drivers should not be allowed on the road. Start kicking cars when they do that shit and not stop to say sorry or ask if you are ok.

It's like when you're trying to walk by someone in a narrow hallway. You both step to the same side, then the other and finally one person makes way. The bad news is this sounds like it could have ended a lot worse.

Glad to hear you're okay.

I had a similar experience at that off ramp about 6 months ago. The wife and I were driving back from DC on a Friday night, maybe 10p or so and were getting off I66. Just as we get on the offramp I see a pair of headlights coming my way. Started flashing the brights and laying on the horn while waving my arm out the window to flag the driver down. It was an elderly gentleman and at first he just waved back- obviously not realizing what he was doing- but when I started yelled at him as he passed he got smart real quick and did a u-turn.

The thought of a head-on crash coming off that exit at speed is really scary.

Cagers wonder why mirrors snap off all of a sudden. Not saying I condone it, just saying I understand why


Can't choose between the R1 and the 10R so I am keeping both but settled with an 1198S when I came home

Keep it up!!!!!!!
