I ride 40 miles to and from work on 495, and atleast 3x a week someone attempts to take my life by merging into my lane w/o signaling or checking if I'm there.

Now I'm a good boy, I keep up with traffic, stay out of blind spots, and signal every time. But I cannot avoid these idiots that are shortening my life expectancy...

my horn doesn't do shit, I've held it down and they still come over, I've had to slam on my brakes and swerve into other lanes to avoid getting clipped.

any tips or can I finally just whip out my retractable baton and mirror smash when someone makes my blood boil again?!!?

I picked 1...get their attention. With most cases given the cager is cluess and not paying attention in the 1st place this should scare the shit out them and hopefully they try to pay more attention.

A bike will never win in a battle against a cage. Aftermarket horns are available that are actually loud and sound like a car. People almost always respond to mine because it sounds like a car is blowing the horn at them. The others are just idiots anyway and nothing would make them more aware of other traffic.


When life gives you lemons, add vodka.

Install air horns up under your undertail. The little compressor fits nicely in the trunk!

I'm a mirror kicker myself...but it rarely happens. I usually just rev pop my pipe at them and give them the finger.

I voted 4. I usually honk the horn (I need a better horn)or rev the engine and then shake my head. Like R1Bolo said...slapping the mirror can just escalate the issue. All I need is some road raged cager deciding to bump me. And a quick pre-rebuttal for the internet tough guys...By the time you pick yourself up from the bump he'll probably be out of bullet range.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.
