This has happened only twice to me, I doubt it happens much in urban settings, if I were an over-correction panic-pants,... I'd be dead.

Yesterday a semi buzzed me (less than 10 inches) at around 80mph obviously for fun, as I noticed him in my mirror and he never even considered using the extra left lane (as the law states) to pass.If I had rocket boosters I'd have caught him and beat him to death with my bike frame.

Does anyone know of a bicycle mounted RPG?I'd like to be able to take the back tires out of a vehicle, so I can slowly pedal up to them, pull my dog beater, and spoon out their eyes and reproductive parts, you know to help further generations, it's for the children.

To any PC-pooties out there, the last paragraph was a venting joke, the above story, TRUE.

Watch those mirrors, if someone has an extra lane to the left and don't use it, be prepared to ditch in the dirt at 25mph.

Had that happen to one of my local spandex road cyclists. After the wipeout he chased the guy down in his driveway and the guy rolled down his window and the cyclist pulled him out through the open window, kicked his butt and stuffed him back throgh the window and road off. Now he knows where he lives!

I carry a pistol for that kind of trash. I want to get me a Taurus Judge, a little bit of .410 buckshot in the offender's sidewall ought to slow him down right quick.

a bit of broken spark plug ceramic in your pocket does wonders too, easy way to break a window

I read a story recently where a cyclist shot and killed a dog that chased him while cycling out in the country. Turns out it was a decorated combat shepherd. It didnt say if the cyclist was bitten, so I assume he wasn't.The dog was shot in his hind quarters.

I have never considered riding with a weapon but defend everyones right to do so. What is always true, is that if no guns are present, no one gets shot. I went to school in the deep south and we had school fights from time to time. If anyone were to pull out a weapon of any kind, they would have been branded a coward for the rest of their lives.

I only pull my gun if my life is in danger. If someone in a 10000 pound mall crawler is trying to run me and my 48 pound bicycle into a ditch, I consider that a threat on my life.

IMHO, a bicyclist, motor-assisted or not, needs to run flashers in daytime, front and rear, regardless of urban surroundings or country lanes.

LED flashers are inexpensive and use very little power while making you much more visible to other people. Nothing is more valuable than that to a bicyclist.

From my experience, this has also cut down on a lot of road rage!

OK, I'll assume you didn't read the story, either way aleman, you win the prize for
"The most imbecilic response to a forum thread", congrats.
HOW in the hell is a flasher supposed to stop a driver who is purposely trying to buzz you to make you over-correct and go down, for their own sick enjoyment?? HOW aleman?
It's broad daylight, I have a huge fairing that reflects light like the sun itself, there are two lanes, and I was in the designated bike lane.

You know I have a judge, but I have the rifle version,wouldn't chop it, and if you've ever fired one, you may as well use an RPG for how loud the damn thing is.

OK, I just noticed you're from nocal, no offense, you are completely out of touch with middle america, farm-country, BFE, whatever you want to call it, and so you don't get uppity, I'm also from CA, just left long before the collapse.
