If you had time to kick her door I think you had time to get out of the situation.

It has happened to me plenty of times...sure I get usually but I know they just didn't see me.

Most wave an apology when I give them the what are you thinking hand signal.

Only one guy laughed at me. I think he really was trying to take me out. Maybe because he got his door kicked in by some other rider in the past...

ps whips are gay as gay can be...even more gay than ape hangers.

now, an expandable baton...that may be useful.

Nevertheless, anytime I take going on the offensive I could have used being defensive and getting out of the way.

Well now... people might be absent minded, but do they deserve to die? What if that all shattered glass rain down on a little baby or toddler that is strapped in right next to the window? Does somebody encroaching on your space give you the right to kill or maim?

If there is one thing this thread should show, that would be...

Think before you act.

That would be the mature thing to do....

Everyone is more interested in playing traffic enforcement and trying to teach other people a lesson.

What happens again when you play stupid games?

You don't seem to understand how auto windows are made. They have, by law, flexible coatings to keep the glass in one sheet when shattered. Window shatters into a million pieces but is held together as one piece by 2-3 layers of sheeting.

Lot of what ifs there.. What if I had mexican food and farted in front of a car, it goes in the vent, gags the driver, passes out, launches off a bridge like the General Lee...Less tv for you.

Where in that do you get "people deerve to die"? I'm pretty sure a motorcycle and auto collision is going to cause more injury and pain to both parties than a shattered window ever has.

If you are going to commute... You better get used to it, and learn how to avod it.

I used to get off.. but it was a waste of energy imo. I would rather leave an out, have a good ride to work and not get off by the actions of other that I cannot control..

Peripheral vision responses to motion, far more than shape, color, and brightness, and contrast.
I do this too if there is space and it's not totally grid locked. When I'm doing it, I'm always thinking "I bet the people behind me are talking because it looks like I'm intentionally darting around for fun"

I also love it when people ride my on the freeway ramps, when I can't go any faster because theres a car in front of me. I usually wave my hand at them to tell them to back the F*ck off. They usually do.

HOV lane is the worst. They tailgate you when it's the car in front going slow...but get this;
Do you want to see how to really people off? Pass them in the HOV lane.

You're damned if you do and damned if you don't

Done that before! lol I don't ride the HOV much because I live in town (Oak Forest) and I commute to Willowbrook, so never much traffic on the road for me.

Although any time i get on I-10 I take the HOV, even if i have to pay $.60 It's worth it to have my own lane all the way to Katy IMO.

Half the time, the cameras don't catch my license plate. I have an EZ tag registered to my plate, so when it does catch me it just charges my account. The EZ tag itself is in my kitchen drawer. lol

Lol the only reason it's not on there is because I don't have a windscreen. The instructions clearly say put it on the windscreen. Wouldn't wanna go against the instructons.
