Having spent a couple hours reading this thread from the beginning I must say it is very interesting.
I am glad to see that it appears the author is still watching this thread and in response to what he posted back in Jan of this year, about having a hard time sleeping etc. I know it might seem easy for me to say things, but after reading your posts it seems clear to me that you need to try and make a couple changes before you go insane.
First I would say get a night light for your room, or stop worrying about being tested at 1:00am. Change the habits that might contribute to your pain. I would also get a bug spray and spray your house for bugs. See it those little scabs on your legs go away for a few weeks after spraying. Come on biker slider, try and attack the issues rather then letting them control your life.
As far as your event on the Motorcycle. It doesn't seem that you are considering that you might have misread your motorcycle clock, if you combine that with the frustration of finding oneself lost, after tripping on what was a distraction, I could see this event becoming larger then life. For instance, lets say you did see an apperation. something was there, but why is it a UFO and not a ghost?
I was once driving around the mountains north of Sacramento Ca and I came across a biker bar with a trailer park, spent a couple hours there. I have since tried to find the place again, but I can't find it.
Although the information was for Slider, I enjoyed what you had to say.
Do you mind explaining more about the sensations abductees experience? Like do they feel vibrations on their feet or entire body? Paralysis? Cool air? Feeling of a presence--and how do people generally describe what they feel and the thoughts they have about what may be going on? Has anyone claimed to awaken to hearing voices or growling? Or being touched? Or pressure on their limbs?
Whatever you can provide by way of description, I'd appreciate it. Feel free to PM me. Thank you in advance.

A lot of years ago there was a report by someone who had been traveling along the Keighley to Skipton road. He was passing the junction known as Cononley Lane End when he looked across to his left and saw what he described as a low office type building that was lit up. Yet he knew that the area was just fields. And it still is fields. I think there was a possibility he had seen a train that was stopped on the railway some distance across the other side of the fields. At night, against the dark background I can see a possible misidentification. But he was quite sure it wasn't as far away as the railway. We never found out anything else.
The are had some ufo sighting in the past Nothing particularly remarkable other than its beautiful and very serene .No science research labs ..hospital nearby..lots of colleges and schools a few miles before you pass . We do know there is some correlation between univ/colleges and crop circles..but I can't speculate that here..One siting was in the 70s by 2 policeman..another was firey almost rocket booster type sighting in 2013 same time of russian meteor incident..
At 4:30 a.m., a lonely police patrol car was driving on a remote country road along the Cononley Moor. In the car were Sgt. Anthony Dodd and Constable Alan Dale. They saw a bright white light that seemed to be diving towards them in a glide. a big shining disc which flew over their heads at a speed of about 40 mph. At its closest, it was hardly 100 feet away from them, so that they could see a number of details. "It was a huge thing, about 100 feet in diameter, and it made no noise
I don't know why the articles above refer to Keighley. Cononley Lane (and the village of Cononley) are about six miles from Keighley. And are not even in the same district. Cononley comes under Skipton and Craven while Keighley is part of Bradford MDC.
However, there has been a lot of ufo activity reported in the are above Cononley.Particularly during the early eighties. I have spent many evenings on sky watches in this very area.
I can only go by the data provided and that should have been the correct location.sometimes News likes to get a little play for tourism. There is an excerpt in the 2 officers story that made for interesting reading. One of the officers was so impressed he went into ufology . The colin andrews article in 2009 in Eulogy to him was pretty good reading.. colinandrews.net/TonyDoddPassing.html 1978 Tony was one of two police officers who witnessed a UFO at close quarters. Here is his story thanks to: ufoevidence.org/cases/case662.htm

The incident occurred on the frosty winter morning of December 12, 1978, not far from Skipton in North Yorkshire. At 4:30 a.m., a lonely police patrol car was driving on a remote country road along the Cononley Moor. In the car were Sgt. Anthony Dodd and Constable Alan Dale, who operated the radio. It was very dark and the road was lit only by the headlights of the car, the silence broken only by the noise of the motor and the occasional messages over the radio. Dodd loved that kind of mysterious stillness in the middle of a bare and unspoiled countryside, with dark houses snuggling up against the low hills as if seeking shelter from the cold winds, and the stone walls that divided the meadows from time immemorial. It was the land of sagas and legends, of witches and elves, spirits and wills-o'-the-wisp, which lured unfortunate wanderers in the moor towards inescapable death. There was a magic in the air which, even thousands of years ago, the ancestors of the Celts must have been aware of, as is shown by the mighty sacrificial altar stones in the middle of the moor.
Suddenly, a loud static noise, hissing and rustling, tore Sgt. Dodd out of his reverie. They were just then driving into a curve when, to the right, a bright white light seemed to be diving towards them in a glide. They thought it was a burning airplane so they drove to the side and stopped the car to see what was happening and where it would land, in case help was required. It was, however, no airplane but a big shining disc which flew over their heads at a speed of about 40 mph. At its closest, it was hardly 100 feet away from them, so that they could see a number of details.
When I interviewed Dodd in 1991 for my documentary film UFOs: The Secret Evidence, he explained, "It had a dome with ports all around it. The bottom was surrounded by colored lights like neon lights in blue, red, green and white which blinked in a sequence as if they were rotating, and in the middle there were three spheres or hemispheres. It was a huge thing, about 100 feet in diameter, and it made no noise whatsoever. What fascinated me even more was that the object was enveloped in a kind of halo which made its entire metallic structure glow white. It flew slowly over our heads and seemed to land at a place behind a group of trees. But we couldn 't see or check that out because at that point it was too far away and in the middle of the moor." "What on Earth was that?" asked Constable Dale breaking the silence, brought back to reality by the penetrating cold. Sgt. Dodd's answer came minutes after that.
"/ don't know, but it was wonderful. "
From that day onwards Dodd started collecting all the information about UFOs that he could get, including, of course, the book "Flying Saucers Have Landed" by Desmond Leslie and George Adamski. His personal encounter with a saucer that resembled Adamski's saucer like a twin had convinced Dodd that Adamski must indeed have had an encounter with a UFO. Since retiring in 1988, Dodd has dedicated himself fully to his "cosmic hobby" as he calls it, and is today one of Britain's leading UFO researchers.
Adamski was the first person to have spoken about contact with aliens who resembled human beings. After him many others reported such encounters. With Adamski, the age of the contactees had begun.
And Adamski is widely believed to have been a fraud.
Tony Dodd does claim to have seen many ufos while patrolling his home area of Grassington. In fact he claims so many that there was some question as to the veracity of the sightings.
But one never knows. And the very dark skies over the area would certainly assist him. Odd that other people in the area at the time didn't see anything. Heaven know some of us sat out all night in the area often enough hoping to.
Bye the way, the location shown on the map for Cononley is accurate. And you can see the railway I suggested may have been the cause.
My gripe was that using descriptions like 'near Keighley' when it is actually much nearer to Skipton is one of the things I find irritating. It happens too often.
I;ve seen spherical configurations..just can't locate one..and also his reaction..he felt wonderful was odd..and made me wonder if he was tripping..where even the most mundane object can give one that GodHead experience..it almost like the premise in close encounters where experiencers felt called upon..in fact..Arnold the American according to memoirs by the daughter stated he had had a religious feeling feeling that craft were alive and not from space at all..
The picture above (ufo, could have been a meteorite..) is interesting to me. From where I am sat typing this I can see Cross Roads. And a few people have reported objects seen above that area. It is also on the route (ov'r tops) to Todmorden and Hebden Bridge. Allan Godfrey country. And where Godfrey was involved in the strange case of someone found dead on a coal heap. Coincidentally called Adamski.
Small world we live in.
As for the picture, the trail behind it looks very much like an aircraft condensation trail. Hard to make out what the object itself is.
I've saved this account from a newspaper story although I don't remember which paper as this was years and years ago:
LANCASTER COUNTY - A large rectangular craft was reported July 23, 1999, resting on the ground at 11:31 PM. The craft was approximately 150 feet long and 50 feet wide with windows and antenna. The witness stated, "About midnight I decided to begin driving back to Philadelphia from my aunt's house in rural Lancaster County. When I went out side to leave, I saw a huge object sitting in a field directly across from her front door. It was as big as a football field judging by the nearby trees.
"The craft lit up like daylight with lights all around the bottom and windows with bright bluish/white light inside. At first I thought someone had put up a large 'double wide' mobile home in the couple hours I was visiting my aunt. Then I realized the object was larger than any mobile home, and would be as large as four of these put end to end. I also noticed a number of antennas and other 'garbage' sticking and jutting out from the top and sides.
"I ran back inside. My aunt came out and was a bit shaken by all this. I was pretty scared too, but I was intrigued. It was just weird. We watched for ten minutes as the craft began making a very low sound. Like a buzzing wire that isn't plugged into the stereo correctly, but with more variation in pitch and allot deeper. You could feel the vibration in the pit of your stomach and my aunt felt sick.
"The craft then began to lift off the ground and turn. I could clearly see it was a rectangle as it slowly turned its narrower side towards us. The craft turned off some of its lights and began moving steadily upward in an awkward wobbling motion, almost as if it was too heavy to support its own weight. We were not that far away when the sound became more intense.
"My aunt went back inside for fear that the craft might crash. It managed to lift off vertically and turn itself 90 degrees after reaching about three times the height of the tops of the trees. Then for about 25 to 45 seconds it began shaking wildly. It began to accelerate like the space shuttle, but only with that low humming sound not a rocket's roar.
"After it started shooting upwards it was nearly out of sight within 10 minutes, becoming nothing more than a slowly moving star. I called the local TV station and they knew nothing about it and suggested I call the sheriff's department. I did and they said they had a couple reports of odd lights in the sky and they passed them to MUFON. Afterwards, I was firmly shocked.
"I have never believed in this stuff until now and I feel we are about to be taken over. I got a very 'sinister' feeling from that object. Like it was scouting for a place to set up operations in the future or something. I felt it was a giant processing center."
It reminds me of another account I got from the book "Clear Intent":
January 21, 1976 – 2100hrs – 12 miles outside Fairfield, Montana. Bill Link (pseudonym) stated to investigators that he and his wife, a brother, his two sons and a daughter saw on that night. The following are excerpts from Link's statement to the police:
We first spotted them from the house. My boy saw them first just as we turned in to go into the house…It didn't look strange to me. My wife, boy and little girl stayed out, and pretty soon she said, "Come out, Bill. Look at these. They're really funny!" So I went out there, and by this time there is a row of trees down the road about three-quarters of a mile. Well, by this time, these lights were coming back and forth out from behind this row of trees. And they appeared at the time to be landing in the field and taking off and landing in the field and so forth. So we watched them for quite a while, probably twenty minutes, there with the field glasses on. About this time we saw two red blinkers down on the highway and I said, "Well, somebody has reported it to the sheriff or somebody is out there now with a patrol car watching them, so we'll go down too." So I think I took the two boys and jumped in the pickup and as we turned the corner off our approach on the main highway, why, these red things that we thought were patrol cars, they then floated off the highway over this field, still blinking or they were then. So we drove on down there and then, as we approached the field where they had went, why we saw this structure that looked like a hotel. A two-story hotel sitting out there in the field and the other lights were grouped around it. About four sets of lights grouped around it.
[The object that resembled a hotel] had a rectangular shape, you could see the outline of it. You couldn't see the outline till you put the field glasses on. Then you could see the dark outline.
