I considered the license plate approach, but figured that being behind him put me in a "brake check" situation and my main concern was keeping my rubber side down. As far as the Mercedes driver, no idea

I see it all the time in my truck and usually I'll do the same thing to them that they did to the bike... Tables turn when a 11,000 pound truck is swerving at your car... .

The outlaw biker way is to pull up beside the car and smash their windshield. That's what that long braided strap with a steel shank on one end is hanging off Harleys..

...lots of idiots out there. I think everyone should have to ride a motorcycle in traffic and wait tables that way they would drive safer and always tip. Two very important skills.

Had a girl on a cell phone come over into my lane while I was right next to her a couple months ago. Was only moving about 10 mph in heavy traffic so I easily moved to the right onto the shoulder. Instinctively gave her door a swift kick, was slightly in front of her and revving my engine to let her know to get back in her lane. This happens all the time but this idiot still didn't know I was there even after kicking the car, revving the engine, and staring right at her. Idiots.
