OK so the lessons I've learned....
Don't flip people off.
And don't slow down when an idiot is chasing you!

Thanks for the advice guys... Hopefully it never happens again (because I won't be giving anymore people the "Houston wave"), but if so, I'll just keep going fast. That's what the bike is made for huh!

here is the trick when getting chased on the freeway top speed for an exit or two, hop off the freeway bust a u turn go back the other way for an exit or two exit and take the side streets. if a car can keep up with you doing that hang up your helmet

HAHA good one.... nope I promise I was doing between 100 at the start, and 130 at the end. Ask all the cars I passed on the freeway today! This whole thing lasted a good 15-20 miles.

For reals, thanks. It was scary... like I said, I've never been in a situation like that before; I didn't know what protocol was....!

Is that true? Do you throw them all at once or one by one? It's good to know... I'll have to keep that in mind!

EDIT - Ahh thanks for the video! Does it work on the front too, the safety glass?

what is so great about the spark plug thing like something special about ceramic? does it do something special or anything of the same weight like a marble or ball bearing have the same effect?

it works a lot better on rear or side windows than windshields.

a flywheel works well on the windshields though, or any glass for that matter.

working in a junkyard can be good times...

hehe Yep I'd done a search and read that story... your situation sounded much funnier than mine! LOL

I've used the finger a few times while driving/riding in the past 14 years, but I never got a reaction like I got today!

Thanks bro!
It's good to be able to tell my tale here and not have become a statistic, you know? People are just plain crazy!

I've been followed a few times. Mostly once they're next to me they are taking picture or trying to get a phone number, so I just get the outta that situation, and don't slow down or look back. A cage following you could turn out badly. I'm glad to hear this time it worked out in your favor.
