Little Story About My First Time Calling the Police on a Motorist

First off, sorry for the silence! Hadn't really realized that it's been almost a month since I last checked in. Oops...

Also, don't really have any photo's to illustrate this story, so here's one of the Fuji playing in some leaves. It is the first day of fall after all. :)

So on my ride out to the barn this afternoon, I spotted a big red pickup truck in my rearview mirror. I take note of it and think nothing of it. Suddenly I hear a police siren! I check the mirror again, but no cop, just the big red pickup. Then the truck roars around me, the driver flipping me the bird! I was just a bit dumbfounded. Did that truck have a police siren?!? Big red 4X4 with deer hunting stickers all over the back window. Surely people can't just go around with police sirens in their personal vehicles. At this point I felt my hand coming off the handlebar to return the fowl but I caught myself! And since my hand was already up I made the "call me" gesture at the guy. Suddenly his hand shot back in the truck and he floored it. I guess he thought that meant I was going to call the police. So I thought that might be a good plan. When I got to the barn I called the police. They took my report and description (unfortunately didn't get a license plate number) but they did seem interested that someone was going around with a police siren in their truck.


  1. You did well not to return the gesture. Don't provoke. You didn't know who they were and what the would have been capable off.
    Several years ago I was walking along dark country roads with a previous boxer. I had a very bright Surefire torch. A car drove up level with me and abuse shouted, it then drove on a few yards, reversed back then forward.
    I was alone with no help and feared the worst so I started shouting and took a run at the car shining the torch at the drivers door.
    Much to my relief the the car sped off.
    I didn't put myself in that position again.
    Take care,

  2. What a Class A Jerk. It is crazy how there are people that choose to put such negative energy out there for no good reason.

  3. Next time be careful, you dont know what that crazy guy thinking..
