driver! How do you Fight back?

This pulls out infront of me, and then tried to run me off the road when I tried to pass. Acting like it was my fault. So I drop gears and make some room between us. ....... I have heard of dropping marbles, nuts and bolts, other small things, or kicking doors. What have ya'll done or do to fight back? A bike does not match up to a car or truck coming at you.

Try to get clear of the hazard. Situations like that are always going to pop up from time to time. I wouldn't throw marbles, bolts, etc. at anything I wasn't ready, willing and able to pull over and deal with face to face. Which if you are is almost never worth it anyways.

Ride with a gopro, and after incidents like this happen file a police report and provide them the video.

Ignore it and get away, document it and call the cops or pull over and confront the .

Those are your three legit choices. Throwing at their car is a hoe move.

just drop a gear and disappear. It ain't worth it. Used to bother me a lot before. Only thing you can do is pay more attention to your surroundings, and ride with a camera.

First off, you are about to get into this
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=268601
with that attitude.

Remove yourself from the situation. I'd drop back simply because I'd much rather have a problem in front of me than behind me. No need to take the situation to the next level, you won't like the outcome.

There you fought back, Just get the out of there--acceleration and speed is pretty much the only thing you got on people in cages.

Get over it and be more aware to try and avoid these people and if not give yourself some room. I don't have a problem letting it go and getting the away to much fun on a bike to stay all angry.
