    Gotta say, I thought my number was up today.

    Driving to see my grandmother (who my uncle lives with) and I’m turning left, have the green and someone BLOWS the light to my left, they were hauling ass, 50+. If I didn’t hit the brakes they’d have punched me right in the door.

    Gotta love my great white ninja reflexes.

    Yep on driving defensible.
    Had a passenger with me when a car pulled out in front of me.
    We were BSing away, I went wide around the car to a typical escape route imbedded in my brain without hitting the brakes or letting off the gas and without missing a beat to our BSing.
    The rider was amazed in my driving reflexes and know how to get us out of danger.
    Motorcycle experience...actually...I just made a pass on the guy....with limited passing room.
