a handful of change or objects to politely toss up in the air as they are on your and rain down on their car will usually get them off your b/c they think your bike is breaking down lol.

I do not ride the street anymore so i do not condone this method i used in the past

A few weeks ago I was riding my Ducati towards Galveston and some guy was trying to get me to race his SUV (really?) but sped off when I ignored him. Less than a minute later I slowly rode past him as the Highway Patrol had him pulled over. Good times.

If I can I usually slow way down move over a lane and ignore them. I once had a rice burner honda that was being either rebuilt or slowly customised by a teenager try and race me on 290. He kept hitting his gas to make his car blurp forward thinking I was going to race him... The best part... I was on a ninja 250 at the time and had been riding about 6 months. Just cause we are on sport bikes doesnt mean we are looking for a race, and just cause it looks like a sport bike doesnt mean it actually is a true sport bike either.

Men in pick up trucks always want to race me. I always just twist the throttle just a tiny bit and leave them wondering how I did that.

I get on their side (quick before they know what hapenned) look at them, if they show signs of wanting to get embarressed and challenge me one more time I start dropping gears and letting her breath as I do.. then if they havent taken off by then I keep switching lanes to a safe lane and just cut her lose..

ALWAYS have some ball bearings in your jacket pocket. Someone starts riding your . You let them loose (obviously leaving like a bat out of afterwards) incase of some retaliation.

I guess with me, It's completely situationally dependent. If someone is seriously threatening my livelihood. I will return the favor in the same manner. ( no specifics needed)

I usually carry ball bearings, too, but once I run out (which doesn't take long given the redneck to sportbike rider ratio out here in the sticks) I find that pennies are a great substitute. It's really the only thing they are good for.

Texas cage drivers are the reason I don't ride strapped anymore ... its just too tempting to go off after a day of dealing w/ assh@les...well, that & that pesky court order.

You get used to the attention and all of the close calls after time. I remember coming home every day with a new story about how someone almost hit me for the first year of riding...

Houston drivers are awesome compared to some other parts of the country.

I never had a problem with douchebags when I had a GSXR, but that was a long time ago so maybe I'm forgetting something.

Cars are another story. Both my cars are magnets.

Exactly. But like I said, They endanger my life and I return the favor. I stay strapped because of them. It is very easy to get tempted. Years of experience have helped. But I have had cager's before that were trying to kill me ( road rage I guess). I couldn't go anywhere because of traffic. In trying to resolve the situation calmly. I called the police to report. They told me there was nothing they could do unless a law had been broken or they had actually collided with me (they came within 2 inches multiple times). So when traffic opened up, I resorted to what I had to to protect my life. I didn't kill anyone. I didn't injure anyone. I sure as did property damage and scared the out of them. He backed off mighty quick and was never to be seen again.

I DO NOT CONDONE THIS BEHAVIOR. Just do what is necessary to protect ones life.
