What do you guys do when riding and come across a distracted cager? Texting, talking on cell, using their navigation, reading? I've been thinking more and more about carrying a whip of some sort and smacking their window or windshield or something. But that'll probably just make them swerve right into me. I'm losing more and more patience with them.

Rev your engine or blow your horn, then when they look at you, wave to them like you know them. They'll keep an eye on you for the entire time they're around you wondering who the hell you are....but at least they'll know you're there. You can think to yourself every time, gotcha without causing a ruckus.

It isnt the early 90s anymore. Everyone has a cell phone with a camera. Big brother was and is smarter then most. Why send the fuzz when you carry him recording your life in your pocket.
Sure you get to use all the cool functions. They get the best one. A record of your doings including pictures and gps spots even if you have the funtion turned off.
Its hard to be a gypsy or nomad in this world anymore. Im ok with it....

Last summer heading down the Garden State Parkway, some Tony Soprano wannabe lookin' motherfucker in his Escalade passes me on the right in the same lane I'm in. I speed up to give him a shout and the state bird, and he just laughs. He knew just one cut of the wheel to the left and I'd be in a ditch and he could have his door buffed out while he at the tables in Atlantic City, and so did I. So I just let off the throttle and let him go about his life as an asshole and I went about mine the same.

Sounds like fun when the bastard is red with rage.
People that tailgate me, I have a three step process. One, I wave back like I'm their buddy. Two, I stand up, sticking my ass in the air (usually gets a big WTF and they slow down). I call it mooning, I know I look like an idiot, but I'd rather be an idiot than flattened. Three USED to be flip them off. Four was throw whatever was in my pocket. 3 and 4 are now slow down, wave them by.. You pull out in front, and they'll follow you. Worse yet, if you flip someone off, they'll shoot your ass. My dad had a gun pulled on him in GA.

Here's why I changed it. I was in N. Michigan, my GF was on the back. The highways go from 1 lane to two to pass. Well these shits like to go 45 then speed to 65 in the passing zone, and a CB550 with 400 extra pounds won't exactly pass in a lightning streak (it was just barely long enough to pass a car going 65).
So I get up on the throttle to pass this fruity Chameleon paint Bonneville in the right lane. What does he do? He swerves out into the left lane, pushing me across the double yellow.:eek: Kate gets out the nuts and shit in my pocket and waves them in front of me as if saying "chuck them?"
I waved back no, and I'm glad I did. If he could swerve out and push me into oncoming traffic, he would've run my ass over. Kate really must've been pissed if she got the bolts out, usually she's the cool one.


Another time I was on the Indian, which is no speed demon. I don't have a speedo and was driving what I thought was 40. I look back and this FIP is 2 feet off my ass. I wave, moon him, then flip him off for a good ten seconds, waving it around like a fucking idiot making sure he sees it. He didn't like that.
http://2damnfunny.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Mr.-Bean-Flipping-Off-World.gif

We both pulled up to the stoplight, he was still behind me. I waved him up next to me, he pulls up and whoops "Are you out your fucking mind?" I shout back "YEAH!"
The light turns green and I tear into the scout, pinning it at full throttle. Well he followed me like a creep for the next 10 to 15 miles, no matter what turn I made. Haven't flipped anyone off since.

seriously the best way ive found. yank on your pants a bit, stand up on the pegs, and show them the vertical smile. ive mooned more than a few cell phone wielding, makeup applying, big mac scarfing soccer moms. That alone usually makes them back off.

i guess the sight my hairy ass is too much to handle



Ive seen that brazilian video. Ive been forced to kick a car out of necessity. i was being pinched off, in my own lane, and my option to slow down was not there as the rig behind me was too close too stop. Some woman tried to force me into a curb last year and i rearranged her fender on her brand new volvo. She was dong it on purpose and i did what i had to do to stay on two rollers

My favorite is having a couple 18 wheeler lugnuts in my pocket, preferably rusty old ones. I mean, those things could have bounced up off the roadbed, right? Honestly I pretty much just stay away from the idiots. CO has shall-issue concealed carry, and I have a permit, but that doesn't mean I'm looking for a fight.
That said, I have kicked one car- really hard- for trying to kill me. Dickhead got his Lamborghini (I think it was a Gallardo, and no, I am not making this up) back from the valet down on Larimer Square in Denver and decided to impress everybody by laying into the throttle without looking at all of the traffic that was coming- led by me. So yeah, dude got the world's most expensive boot print in his door.

Both these idiots drive "performance" cars (Eclipse and Cooper S) and I'm sure they both drive like idiots. I knew before I could back my way out of the situation I was automatically getting involved being one of the few bikers. I simply shrugged and said that bolts, screws, nuts, ball bearings and marbles are all old hat, told them my step mom's father owns a junk yard and I have him pull all the tire irons out and save them for me and that I always carry a couple tucked into my bike somewhere and since they're free I don't think twice about tossing one over my shoulder, or grabbing some brake and smashing windows and beating the crap out of the car after I drop it down a couple gears and rib back by them again, then said that its got nothing on a buddy that's rigged up a couple 12 gauge shells filled with pea gravel facing backwards from the bike in a home made zip gun. I've thought about doing something like this many times but the times I've wished I'd had something to toss at the shit heads passes pretty quickly with a couple exceptions.

Fuck everybody that gets in my way. I've spit huge lugee's on fools faces if their window's down, I followed a mini van family that almost took me out blowing a red light, and screamed at them that I was gonna rape the wife and eat the kids. They'll never forget that hahaha:D I'm talking about fools that almost take you out, not fools just being distracted. A rich bitch in a benz totally flew in front of me at a 4 way stop when it was my turn so i rammed the side of her door with my front tire, put a nice dent in it. I gunned it and passed her and waited for her at the next 4 way stop. And if a fucktard wants to pull over and fight, well that's why I've been training for 15 years, bring it. If I get shot, i get shot, but have you ever tried to shoot a moving target? Not easy. Of course I like to do crazy shit like ride on acid with a loaded 40 cal, well i used to, now I'm reformed from wasted riding, or trying to be.

Yes. That is the reason that no one in a car has ever accidentally come into your lane. Because you have a gun on you.


I'll tell you what, though... if I saw what looked like a guy on a bike trying to pull out a piece after what amounted to a pretty insignificant "incident", and I was in my truck, I sure as shit wouldn't think twice about bumping him off the road before he ever got that shit in the air.

My point is, you never know who is in the car, how crazy they are. They don't have to be as "tough" as you, all they need to be is a little scared, and a little nuts, and your dead, whether you get a shot off or not.

Distracted assholes are why you gotta have a fast bike. When I see some blue haired granny peering over a tissue box on her dash board, or some phone talking text messaging power suit executive paying more attention to his blackberry then his lane, I just put as much distance between me and him as I can. I'm not a cop, and I'm not going to spend my time trying to teach everyone on the road how to be a better driver, when some one's being a retard I just try and get gone.

I tend to spend more time looking at the road than into peoples' cars to see if they're texting/on the phone. Most of the times I've had close calls have been people distracted in one form or another... usually a cell phone. I give em a look, sometimes flip them off, and ride out.

The one time I was going to kick a car for stopping at an intersection suddenly because they decided they wanted to make a left turn from the main lane I couldn't because there was a cop right in front of me.

Like most people have said, it's a losing battle. If you get someone angry enough, they'll do exactly what that lady did in the video posted in the first page. They won't even realize the severity of their action until the anger was worn off and you're under their tire. My bike is loud so I try to make my presence known. If that fails, I bail and leave the problems behind so cages can duke it out among themselves.

Simmer down chief. I meant that having a gun on my hip probably prevents people from being total pricks intentionally. I'm not talking about unintentional stuff. And trust me, I'm very non confrontational when I'm riding.

The ONLY time I've been confrontational was when some asshole purposely pushed me into a curb so he could make a left turn, in heavy traffic. I slammed on the brakes, went around him, and flipped him off. He got out of the left lane (the lane he was so desperate to get to) and pulled behind me at the next light and was hanging out his window up to like his waist screaming at me. I pulled over, and so did he. That's when I realized that I was riding a bike with no endorsement, no registration, and I was on probation. Probably not a good combo for me when the cops show up. Everyone at the intersection was yelling at him to leave me alone too haha. So I jumped back on the bike and took off. None of the other cars would let him out of the driveway we had pulled into, so he probably had to take a little detour to get back on the road OR he had to wait forever. Either way, he had to sit there being all angry as fuck while I rode down the road with a smile of my face. His wife was probably bitchin' at him too. I hope that fucker was late to his proctology appointment or wherever he was going in such a hurry.

I'd really rather piss off and have to shoot some dumbass road-raging cager than have them splatter me because they're trying to occupy the same lane as me in heavy traffic with no escape.
