Tailgaters, make my blood pressure hit the ceiling.
Ok fellow riders/jockies/pilots. I layed awake last night for a few hours just imagining what kinds of things I can do to the real pain in the rear ignorant tailgaters, you know the types, up my tail so far, I could almost see the peachfuzz on their lips if it was daytime, blinded by the light takes on a whole new meaning here folks.
I do get them once in awhile, most back off with my new light show and me thumbing behind me, works for most, but I got one Thursday evening on my way home from work around 7:30 that just fired me up, I did several wave off attempts, brake lights on for a half mile, slowing down until I have a quarter mile open road in front of me, then waving her off, Yes it was a small women, then launching away at a high rate, twice, she still don't get it, single lane Maryland crappy roads, with the new triple yellow lines Highway 32, in Sykesville area. (wow I'm not impressed) anyway, she's back on my ass again, so close I was getting very uptight, now, 900 pound touring rig, my big ass 295, all leather, boots included, black helmet, all of my lights working perfect, this women is up on me tight again, now about the forth time, so I say *&^( It and just pull over, she blasts past me right up to a cage bumper in front of me, So it's confirmed, it's not just bikes, but anyone in front of her !
So now I got a wide center turn lane, I pull back out behind her and check the vehicle out, I was so fuming at this time, all I got was the last three and vehicle type, I'm looking for this women, back to the turning median, I pull up on her drivers side and ride formation for a few hundred yards, she's pretending she don't see or hear me, I got a good look this time, I'm watching for this one. As now that I remembered her tag, I have seen her before, I think were both on the same type of work schedule. As it's been in the am and pm.
Ok folks, I did the only sane thing at the time, and pulled over, the few motorists behind her watched what was going on, they couldn't have missed it, I was so close to just stopping the flow and going back for some yelling. But I know I would have lost it and started doing some damage to her vehicle. So I didn't stop.
Ok for the fun part of this topic, besides me either blasting away from the idiot, or pulling over, yes I sometimes do the old salute, this works most of the time. But I'm trying to be decent here.
What are some of the things you fellow riders have done to these very persistant ignoramouses, or (BDI) brain dead individuals. I'm going to wait for some fun answers and see if anyone comes up with some of my old tricks, old stuff learned from my biker dad back in the day. Note I do enjoy my freedom and don't want anyone hurt but holly crap batman, do I need load up with a Bat or Fireaxe ? lol.
Oh and I'm a former LEO (20 years ago). So I do know what can happen out there. You know we former LEO's have feelings too !. And can get hurt the same as anyone.
Ok let em fly boys and girls.
