On the bike, I've had great success with just putting my left hand down and making a pushing back motion to signal them to back off. I think they don't expect such a non-confrontational reaction and then feel guilty about their own actions. Either that or they don't even realize they're tailgating until I point it out to them.

I do the same and if they still don't back off I just slow down and they will pass.  I tried the get mad route but that just makes me a jerk too.
These wonderful little birds are great flyers, delicious eating, excellent for training your hunting dog, and just fun to shoot,or stuff and keep around the house.  Bobwhites can be put with other types of Quail and have very large penis's.  Quail are very popular with the babes.

Gibson,

I feel your pain bro.

maybe a new strategy should be looked into...

mini cams digital imaging front and back. 
with a "quick trigger" somewhere easy to reach.
this way you might be able to snap off a couple pics of the #$%*
who desperately needs to be turned over to the COPS.

or join up with one of those "disreputable" biker groups.
they usually don't ride alone. It makes sense really.
lets face it, Would you even think of tailgating a couple of "PEGANS"

i don't think so..

unless you wanted your ribs cracked, eyes black, car burned, house burned, wife raped & forced to be a member of the club,
your dog raped, your honda scoot turned into a piniatta, and your lunch money taken.

then all i can say is..











"wasn't me! it was HIS idea!" :-\

Tailgaters are a pain in the ass for sure, no trying to derail the thread but twice this week I have had one driver pass me on the right while I was attempting a right hand turn and another try it after I was committed to a right hand turn. nearly ate it both times, God damned clueless pricks.
(for You left side drivers/riders passing on the right on a single lane is not legal here.)
I farted and made my son cry.

I got run off the road not more than 3 miles from home on a quiet country road in the afternoon so it can happen annywhere.
Clint Eastwood said it best ''A man alone is easy prey''
A guy my father know's was going on a main highway 80-90 Klm/h when he was tailgated almost run off the road then the car slowed down and hit the brakes ahead of him then got along side and hollared at the lad on the motorcycle. like anny good prepaired biker should be he pulled the 357 magnum from his chest pocket pointed it in the car window and hollard you get the #$%* out out of here car hit the brakes and was never seen again or before.
Evon if you apear to be alone never be.

Yes, this is probably much more versatile than having a machine gun fixed to the bars. This way you can get good 360 degree coverage.

the 357 magnum. While it does have its  appearance effect has a flaw,

its a freakin hand cannon!  bulky and cumbersome, not to mention a monster recoil.

while a snub nose 38 could do the job just as well or if you like, 15 in the clip of the glock 9.

all those could do the job but..

there are those pesky lil licence to carry and concealed gun permit's you have to get.

like ol Dirty Harry said "a man's got to know his limitations"

Even with the required paperwork, many places have laws against "brandishing."

There might be laws against brandishing but in an instance like this, you could probably use the case of self-defense. Which it really can be. If a person is deliberately tailgating and harrassing you, that would then be self-defense.

tough to prove that in court.

i think it's better not to antagonized #$%*s who outweigh me, in general...and in particular on a bike - just seems like asking for it.

not that it wouldn't feel GRRRREAT! to see the look on their face when you pulled out the dirty harry.

Few things can complicate your life faster than pulling a gun on someone, let alone shooting them.  Far better to avoid the situation.

Absolutely!

I hate being tailgated also, but you never know, they may have a bigger gun, then where are you and "tailgating" can be subjective. Minimally you may find yourself debating the issue in front of a judge.. or jury. Who needs that?

We are talking about if a person is purposely screwing with you. A motorcycle has no defense. I have know others that have been run off the road by a person like this. You cant just slow down with these people. In town is not such a big deal as you canlose them in traffic but out on the hiways, thats another story. I would do whatever I had to, to get those type of people off my back. If that means pulling a gun, so be it. I woiuld rather go to court than let some tard with a vendeta against motorcycles splatter me.

we have enough road rage in the UK, I'd hate to see what happens if we where allowed to have guns  :o

There is an old saying attributed to Robert Heinlein that goes 'an armed society is a polite society.'  I think there is some truth to it.

When I ride, I always keep my CB550 decoys at the ready!
They work just like flares on an F18. One minute Charlie's all over your ass, the next minute he's confused and you're riding up his tail pipe!
