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.
In my case, I just know that, as much as I hated doing 6 months in county (for kicking my roommate's ...long story), I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't be any happier about sitting in prison, hence my being "sans glock".

I figure I'm better off dropping ball bearings, twisting the throttle, & leaving them wondering wtf just happened. Ya know?


Oh yeah...I almost forgot...F*@K THE POLICE...useless pu$$ies!

Yep. Swerve back and forth in your own lane and they will back off. Works every time.

You lot tossing pennies and ball bearing at cagers might wanna consider what could happen:

What if the driver behind you freaks out, step on her brakes hard, gets rear-ended from behind, an the impact kills her 6months old infant?

What if your penny puncture her radiator, and she is stuck in the middle of a busy highway?

What if, next time, it's the pickup truck driver that tosses out the BBs and penny at another motorcyclist, because of what YOU once did to the pickup truck?

Would any of that be worth your satisfaction?

Women 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.



Lol.

Speaking back on this topic, someone in a "tricked out" scion and an eclipse just raced passed me going maybe 110+MPH over here on the causeway in Galveston, all I'm doing is heading to class and bam they pass me on both sides. Didn't even see them in my mirrors cause my elbow pads from my jacket take a chuck of my vision without lifting my arm to see.

Same thing happened to me when I took a bike trip to Mississippi. When going through Baton Rouge, LA, someone flew passed us wanting to instigate a race, but I ignored him. No more than 5 min later, BRPD had him pulled over, I laughed softly as I strolled on by.

I'd have to give two about the welfare of the public @ large to worry about every possible negative consequence of giving some on the freeway for driving like a .

Plus, in the interest of fairness, consider this: what if the guy I throw a ball bearing @ slows down just enough that he misses hitting the car of a college student on his way home, & said student goes on to a brilliant career as a doctor, & eventually, discovers the cure for cancer?

I'm jussayin', you w/ my life/bike, you shouldn't be surprised by your dose of instant karma.

Start throwing stuff at vehicles, and they will throw stuff back. Not a good choice. Last thing I need is someone doing that to me because of what another rider doing that to them.

I don't ever ride super close behind someone due to the fact I am on a 400+/-Lb vehicle, I would hope they aren't throwing out when I am a few car lengths away.

If you live long enough, you might eventually understand that EVERYTHING you do carries a consequence back onto yourself. Walk graveyards long enough, you'll sooner or later meet a ghost.

It's your life. Live however you see fit.

I understand you bro! It's called respect other people, and stay safe. If someone is wanting to get by, let them, and viceversa.
I do get upset when someone is blocking the fast lane, and they are texting or on the phone. I miss 1985 when the technology wasn't there. People paid more attention.

What I hate most is the LACK of respect for riders. Some SUV drove me to the shoulder then chased me just because I flashed them when they cut in front of me without a signal, and i mean they were close to me. I hated driving on the shoulder, but they forced me.

Take the next exit loop around, and get back on the freeway. ( hot pit ).
