I would not want to test the level of composure of a cager getting pelted by the coins from a bike in front of him/her, especially if the bike does not have a safe out. Too many cases of the road rage involved the pissed off cager attempting to "teach a lesson" and the cage always wins in a direct contact.Keep a roll of nickles or pennies within easy reach and disperse when necessary. :sinister:
Steel ball bearings about 1/2" in diameter work great.I keep a roll of pennies and a squirt gun full of red food coloring. I squirt it straight up in the air and it comes down on their windsheilds. They typically freak out and back WAaaaaaaaaaaaaay the f- off! lmao!! The trick is to not get yourself and don't be really obvious.
How fast were you taking the odd ramp compared to the posted speed ??That happens to me a lot on off ramps, they don't pass me but they get real close to me. I had a guy that had to have been going like 80 approaching the off ramp, he had to slam on his brakes when he came up on me. After the off ramp I was gone, and he was probably wondering why I took the turn so slowly.
Yeah I normally don't take to kindly to being tailgated and one day I'm probably going to wind up pissing off the wrong person but 75% of the time this is what I'll do.
1) turn around and look at them like wtf!
2) if they are still there start flashing my brakes (this combined with the "look" normally fixes the situation and there is no need to go on to 3&4)
3) if the asshole is still there I'll pull my clutch in and normally go ahead and downshift 2-3 times getting ready for step 4, but once I find the gear I want I SLAM on my rear brake locking it up just long enough that I know it's rolling in smoke and I see the car behind me slamming on brakes too
4) bounce off the revlimiter and get the F Outta there because I just pissed off someone who was already pissed
