Well thats good to hear than. My point though was people make mistakes all the time. We being a lot smaller on the road compared to a car, we are a lot more difficult to see. So with that in mind ride defensively and expect cars to cut you off so that when it does happen you're already prepared. But out of respect for peoples "property" dont go messing up their vehicle because their driver is only human. I've merged into a bikers lane before and I made sure to let them know I was sorry. Not everyone is going to apologize but oh well.

When you get cut off, just stick your foot up as your haulin by them and kick their side mirror off their car. Works for me! :icon_bigg Its gotta be obvious they did it on purpose though cause if its an honest mistake, i let it slide most of the time. I love it when your cruising and your about to get over and the car either speeds up to not let you over or wants to cut you off. Costs them a mirror everytime!

According to some great people on this site that would make you an idiot, But who am i to say. The rest of the idiots thought my idea was dumb so whats one to do besides be a good boy from now on and let them run you over honestly, mistakes are always made by honest people right? Something about eating melons to.

how about this. My girlfriend is 21 and just got her learners permit, she has never driven before. Riding with her trying to teach her to drive in houston has really made me what are really riding around, motorcycles included. If we are trying to make an exit and she has her turn signal on to get over a lane, she isn't experienced enough to know to look over her shoulder twice to see the bike flying by in the right hand lane carrying 30-40 mph over the speed of traffic.
Some people I know from the country come to houston and honestly aren't prepared to drive here, they are extremely intimidated, and I've seen many cases where people try to get over but no one will give them enough space and (omg) I've seen cyclists creep up on them and not give an inch either.
It doesn't mean they are bad people they just may not be the greatest driver in the world. Do you think throwing at their car is gonna all of a sudden make them an awesome driver? Do you really think they cut into your lane because they are evil cagers and they want to hurt motorcyclists? If you seriously think that you need some counseling for crazy paranoia.

Lets play your scenario out. Someone cuts me off, so I risk my neck by cranking the throttle to get in front of them. I reach in, pull out some giant metal , and toss em backwards. One or two might hit the car and shatter the windshield. At 70 mph there is a chance they might go through it and hit the occpuant, or her infant in his car seat in the car next to her. At any rate it will shatter the glass, throwing shards all over the car and scaring the driver. If they came into your lane they may not be the best driver to start with, so they will probably panic and swerve and wreck. Hopefully they won't die or be seriously injured, but then their car might swerve into others or others might rear end it. The ball bearings will probably bounce up and hit other cars (or the ones that missed the car you threw em at will hit other cars immediately). this will all create some kinda havoc on the road and I'm guessing at minimum a couple people will probably get their cars totalled and probably end up in the emergency room.

So in conclusion, because someone accidentally cut you off (you were probably riding in their blind spot anyway or following the car in front of you too closely if you really had no where else to go) you are going to try to kill them, their passengers, and anyone who might be behind them, including other motorcyclists.

You are one smart cookie. I just hope when you try that someone sees you do it and takes down your tag number so you get charged with a minimum of criminal mischeif. Just so you know, if they get your tag # anything that comes off your bike and causes others damage will go on your insurance, and when the fuzz finds out you did it on purpose you'll probably get charged with attemped manslaugher or something like that.
I just hope you are full of and talking that stuff on here to sound tough cause you think it makes you sound cool, and not actually doing it.

Assume you are invisible, and treat everyone like your grandma. weren't those 2 off that top 50 list to stay alive?

That exactly why you dont keep plates on your bike and you sure as dont keep insurance. Anytime the cops try to pull you over, just run! Its easy to get away so **** it. You have your opinion and i have mine. :icon_bigg
