Shake a Cager off your Tail...

I work at a small lounge in galleria, so I get off around 2:30 am and normally ride my bike to work. but every time i leave work, i get at least one P.O.S civic or small-dinky-street-bad- revving next to me. . I try to avoid and change lanes but sometime these douche bags follow.

Most of the time i just end up taking off, until i get a good mile ahead and then start cruising again. but seriously wtf do you do? Kind of dont feel safe confronting a drunk p.o.s late night for obvious reasons.

well when i rode the 650 i would just haul , as much hauling as a 650 would allow.

now if i have a problem i just pull over. the bike isnt fast enough to even shake off a civic lol. i dont get that kind of attention anymore and am glad.

With that said you are BRAVE to ride at that time of night, sooo many drunks

i understand, but when they see nothing but a small dot of taillight a mile ahead of them, the race urge tends to deflate and they go on with their stupid self

I like to bait them into going for it then I back off and watch them go hoping that they will become my radar detector.

Haulin azz is what I usually do but under these circumstances that will likey get u popped, I would slow way down and let them get ahead of U or pull over in a safe place with at least 2 outs, or make a turn or two, just use common sense and be carefull

I like wasting their gas. I see people trying to catch up to me in their POS cars, they must be smashing the gas. All they do is waste gas trying to keep up. Makes me laugh.

I use what I call "Ditch Spots". Places around town that only a bike can fit thru, like sidewalks between buildings, going thru concrete pillars in parking lots. I mean for the times they follow me
