How to end tail gating

so i was thinkin... Ever see the exhaust igniter mods for cars? Flip a switch and flames shoot out of the exhaust. Usually youd see this sort of thing on a riced out honda, mitsubishi ect.. Well i thought to my self what could be an actual use for this other than being a ricer. Then it hit me! Haha it would be great if you have someone riding too close to your bike! Flip the igniter on and im sure the person behind you will want to back off for sure lmao im pretty sure its probably an illegal thing to have instaled on the exhaust but that can be gotten around by watching for cops when you go to use it and also have extra stock exhaust lying around to slap on for inspection time. But this is just a thought

I just pull over wherever I can and let anyone who's in a hurry pass.

I'd rather not piss off any idiots in cars. I'd prefer they were in front of me.

I'm still trying to secure a patent for caltrop dispensing saddlebags. The damnable US DOT stops me every time I apply...

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Now if your the Einstein you claim to be you'll tell everyone the correct answer.
This was totally uncalled for.
Just what is the point of this post?
You should be ashamed to be acting this childish.

And why should he ever have to redeem himself to YOU?

You were on the losing end of a discussion a couple months ago and then just disappeared... until now.
And now you come back and your first two posts are insults to a member?

You have no interest in Rebels... you say that they're poorly designed (like Harleys were) with only one carb for two cylinders. In the same thread you say that Rebels are only good for *petty* rides.

So why are you even here?

Edit... To anyone who thinks that this is just a joke post, see the *Road Rage* post.
This is his second insulting post against Shadow in just a couple minutes.

Thanks for posting this comment. I just read the details and watched associated videos of the incident and court hearings.

Bikes can legally pass between cars in CA, but I believe it's a bad law. Some drivers may put the squeeze on the rider and simply don't like it when a bike rider runs between the cars and pulls up the front of the line at stop lights.

I'm a right lane, flow of traffic type of rider who puts safety at the top of the list which has served me well over the years. Some friends thus refer to me as "Gentleman Dave", the name I use on this forum.

you just don't know how close the guy in the car is to snapping and getting homicidal. It's a documented fact that people in cars.. (especially guys) will do things they would never do if they were walking around in a crowd of people man to man. On a motorcycle you are extremely vulnerable to road rage. That's why you check your pride at the door and just FIDO. (Forget it, Drive On). In a couple of minutes you will have forgotten the incident and no one got hurt for nothing.

Absolutely, totally agreed. Being "in the right" or getting offended is a waste of time. Life's too short, plus it distracts us from being in the moment and SEE'ing. There's always another butt-head on another road, reacting to any of them is just taking minutes away from our happiness.
