    I'd say he was lucky he didn't end up under it. That is crasy. I had a guy start pulling out on me last night...watched me as I rode towards him and still pulled out. Some people are idiots.

    A hopper of paint balls might work just as good...open the hopper and let them fly....LOL

    See that grip on the right side of the handlebar? THATS what you use to make tailgaters disappear. :D

    If you are going so slow that cars are on your tail, I suggest pulling over and letting them pass.

    For safety sake, if you are being tailgated, pull over at the first opportunity and let them pass. Even if you are going 65 in the slow lane on the freeway. If they are tailgating you, they are not a safe or courteous driver. You can get mad if you want, but that won't help when they run over you.
