Not the smartest thing to do. Cars always win against bikes. All she had to do was step on the gas and run you over. Next time just get off the bike and call the cops!

So- I agree with pretty much everything that has been said.

But what would have been the by the book thing to do here? Like, the proper thing. Not the most vindictive or satisfying, but the thing that civil and criminal law would fully support you in?

Just wondering.

That was crazy..!!!

I still don't understand why some stupid cagers try to get so close to the bike at the stop lights

That happens to me a lot, I always leave like half-car in front of me all the time, but the cagers at my six o'clock ALWAYS get very, very close. Next time I'm going to pull that stunt of just not advancing when the light turns green..!! I'm going to shutdown the bike and pretend the engine stall. when they start yelling and try to go around and will just tell them: "why you get so close??, now you can not go around!!"

Not quite sure if that will work....

Cops don't give a flying rat on behalf of a biker!!! They just don't care what happens to us. Most likely they will enjoy it and even cheer when some of us go down!!! Made no mistake...Cops hate bikers!!! specially the sport type.

What i said. Get off take pics/video, get plates, insurance info, etc. depends how hard she hit you, if you fell, got hurt, or bust a soccer player move and pretend you got hit hard and cant move, etc.
I believe the closest distance your suppose to be to the person in front of you is not closer then seeing the Bottom of their rear tires from your hood. its different for bikes.

+ Ball Bearings = less collateral damage

pretty general statement no?
lol i havnt been riding for years, but in my exp. cagers and cops have given me my space and respect. i ride aggressively and with respect to other cars, and the majority of the time i get it back. ive met plenty cops who dont even care to pull over bikes,and then there are some who harass riders. but w/e.

But on topic, i bet u dollers to doughnuts that the trickass didnt learn her lesson. but its something she'll never forget lol. made me wana start carrying a pocket knife on me.

I like the way you think!

Here's my solution if I get even touched by a car behind me because you can never really tell what even a tap will do to your swingarm, wheel, etc. I don't lose my temper or get irate/impolite with the cager behind me. Kickstand comes down, cellphone camera out, picture taken. I then approach the driver and ask for DL information while I am on the cell phone with the police. At the same time I inform the police that I have a CHL and a pocket-carry .380 in my mesh jacket.

All good except for the bold. What do you think now the police will think of you? Does it make a difference if you carry a gun or not when it comes to evaluate the potential damage and mistake the cage did/made?
The mentioning of your gun just makes you a more potential risk than the cager.

Other than that, yes call police, ask for DL and insurance. And get photos + witnesses.

Just my $0.02

You are required to tell the police. In fact if you are in a cage and a cop pulls you over, when they ask for the driver's license you are supposed to give them the CHL and tell them where you are carrying (though they should know from your license plates). Likewise when reporting an incident to the police and you are at the scene, you are required to let them know you are carrying. This is taught at the CHL course.

No, a pocket carry can not be seen through my Tourmaster mesh. See post above. You are required to report that you are carrying.

Surprisingly, most LEO's respect CHL holders because they know that in order to get a CHL one has to be a law-abiding citizen and have passed a background check.

Nevertheless, the issue here is not to let someone like the cager get away with her transgression. Kick stand comes down and the police are called.

Ok, maybe I misread it. I did not know that (In Europe it's not natural to carry guns ). I read it like "Yeah I carry a gun so you better be here quick" .

Never mind, if that's the case that you have to, then just ignore my comment about that. But other than that, yes kickstand down and cops are called especially after the second time because then it can't be seen as an accident anymore.

I took the plate # and called the cops on a crazy in a cage once. Cops came to my house heard my story ran the plate and told me it wouldn’t be the first time they’d been called on her. Then they told me I was welcome to file charges against her and that she would then, no doubt, file against me. With no witnesses or photo evidence, I decided to let it go.

That is by far one of the stupidest things I have ever seen posted on MH, and I have seen some really stupid . I mean who doesn't want to go shut down a roadway, write a report, and do an investigation while watching your brains and guts get scraped up off the pavement, I am sure they are having a blast doing that.
