Ok, so haven't been on here for a while and that is solely due to getting my first bike and in late August and riding ever since. Every spare moment I have I jump on and practice. So in spending that much time on the road I accept that occasionally I am going to have a moment and there have been plenty of these, trucks, buses and the occasional driver changing lanes without looking. This one is a little bit different and it has been about 4 days since it happened. I was riding home from work on Thursday, it was raining and it was my first real experience in the wet. I was being very cautious as I wasn't sure what to expect of the bike in the wet. I was almost home, turning into my street across a main road and look in my mirror and see a mazda 3 behind me also waiting to turn into my street. I complete the turn and the car also turns and as I am going up the street I notice he is right on my tail so I don't panic and just continue up my street on the speed limit. Before my house there is a right hand bend followed by a left hand bend also and I am cautious through there and continue up my street, I indicate about 40 metres before my driveway and then start to brake appropriately still checking my mirror for the mazda and as I am about to go into my driveway he obviously wasn't looking and following to close that he locked up and turned to miss me... he ends up stopping on the inside of me. A little bit rattled I turn and look at him and he reverses and then pulls up on the other side of me in the middle of the road. He winds down the window and starts abusing me by this stage adrenalin has kicked in and I start hurling abuse back pointing out that I had my indicator on, L plates on and its raining. He continues to swear and I tell him that its his fault for tail gating. He then decides that he wants to get out and fight me... so he pulls his hand brake up and gets out of the car... I turn into my driveway and stop the bike before entering my property. I get off the bike noting I am kitted up, boots, jacket, helmet and gloves and stand next to my bike. He starts to come at me and I ask him what are you going to do punch my helmet?? You are going to do more damage to yourself than to me. He decides against it and gets in his car and continues to hurl abuse through the window as he starts to drive off I am still yelling and he stops again and gets out take two steps in my direction and I thought this guy isn't going to stop so I run about two metres toward him and he runs back to his car opens the door and yells out I know where you live!! I was so angry by now! I watched him leave memorising his plate and then thought he was familiar so I went inside and looked though old year books and found him in there a few years below me at school. I thought about telling the police the next day but it will be too much of a hassle to go in there and make a statement and then at the end of the day they are not going to do anything to him anyway!! You think I should make a statement so there is a record of it, incase something happens to my house or bike?
