DvlRacer, I see what you are trying to say. But when someone is riding my . What about my family? What if I happen to stop suddenly because there is something in the road and the behind me cannot react in time because he is already on my . These are things they should consider.

To me tailgating a motorcyclist is like putting a loaded gun to someones head IMO. It's a very unpleasant experience for a motorcyclist.

i honestly dont think throwing sockets or whateva will solve the problem. what i do to avoid situations such as yours is i try to avoid riding with a group of cars. meaning if i see ahead that theres no cars up there... i will speed up just to get from around the cars that are near me... that is just what i did when i had my bike to avoid those type of situations

They are indirectly putting you at higher risk for a potential accident, by throwing marbles at them you are directly harming them and more than likely you could harm another innocent person if your marble shoots off someone's tire into another vehicle. Is it worth it? If you think someone is too close point to them to ask to "give you more space" if that doesn't work tap your brakes so your lights flash. Nothing works, pull your over and let them by. Avoidance should be your only goal, nothing good ever came from spite(revenge). When someone does something to me I try to think of if I've ever made that same mistake on the roadway, more than likely I have at one point in time. If not I make a mental note and try to avoid ever doing it to someone else in the future. Lead by example.

Did you ride home drunk? Wow, long sentence, and check out the top right of the advanced post box. You'll notice a spell check feature. Iregardless isn't even a word dude...

The rest of it, I've already addressed.

Eh, don't worry bro. Nobody is going to win this battle. I agree with you 100% though.

Others will not. But I understand exactly how you feel.

Generally when arguing, spelling like a 3rd grader doesn't help your case. Regardless(or iregardless, so you're on the same page) of the setting.

Yes, *wisdom

But don't worry, it's just the internet, the fact that you decided to throw an "e" on the end says nothing about you.

What would you have done if you had thrown the socket, and it hit someone else causing an accident killing someone, and possibly your girl friend? That's what I would like to know.

And dude. Those are lots of variables. What if Chuck Norris was riding the motorcycle? You think he would have stood for that? He would have destroyed the entire freeway.
