i got an idea...


A harpoon gun mounted just under the licence plate.

you hit the switch then take the next exit.
He'll be on the side of the road in a mile or two.

you go have some cawfee "New York accent"
then get back out on the road to see how far he got.

heh heh heh

You guys are either crazy, or just full of #$%*. Probably both.  ???
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

I go for the slow down and let them pass. A tailgater, regardless of vehicle type, is an idiot. I would rather have an idiot in front where I can keep an eye on them.  ;)
We'll all be someone else's PO some day.

Bob,
I agree, but if they are stupid enough to tailgate, they they are stupid enough to hit thier brakes!! so if I have a BIG problem, I would take the next exit and have a smoke then recommence my journey!

Slowing down till they pass you's a good way to get run over.

In CA., you are "Impeding" the person in back of you. You will get the ticket. I've been to many sittings at traffic school. I could be breaking the speed limit, but if someone is behind me wanting to pass... I have to move over and let h/er go. No kidding!

No matter what jack change is doing in a car, or on a bike, I gas it and get away from them. No bearings, or bullets needed. I do not want to be collected by these drivers/riders. Idiots like this deserve to stay way back.  ;)

You are more likely to have a driver that hasn't seen you pull out in front of, than you are to have some psycho tailgater killer stalk you!!!

That's it Jimmy, the only time I almost came to grief on my Harley Sportster was when a stupid Asian woman driving a Mazda turned in front of me, I had nowhere to go but the gutter, luckily I found a handy driveway onto the footpath ansd continued abusing her long after she'd left the scene, not that she'd understand the crazed gibbersih coming out of my mouth, ha ha! No psycho killers stalking me in the last 37 years so far, but I'm sure it won't be long now, ha ha! ;D

I lived in Scottsdale Arizona and used to ride a 1500cc Vulcan(piece of crap, but I didn't know any better!). There were tales of pick up truck drivers deliberatley running down bikers and playing chicken and other such things. I was advised to carry a gun and shoot first ask questions later! I did carry a gun once as there were no 'carry permits' unless it was concealed. I then realised that this was another urban myth, I do not remember a single 'news' article where a biker had been deliberately run down by a motorist!?

However, I have accidentally cut up a biker once and had my car attacked by the guy! He rode along side me screaming and kicking the wing and door of my car!

I had a young girl in an old renault push into my lane and almost push me into the armco, but she didn't see me, well, she would have if she checked her outside mirror, so I rode up beside her and broke her mirror off, and held it up so she could see it when we were stopped at the lights.

Sadly she still couldn't see it, as she was busily looking the other way. Sounds a bit mean I suppose, but I was only inches from being smeared along that armco, and I doubt she would have learned anything if I just let her get away with it........ 

That Vulcan thing reminds me of a joke a young English army officer, Robert Lawrence, told me about the Falklands war, have you heard it? ;D
