That aint working so good for gangs in chicago. Polite people are polite regardless of their gun possession status.

I prefer my polite society kindness based, not fear based.

FFS, if someone pisses you off in traffic, let it go. It's not worth being seriously injured or your life.
Since the biker was intimidating and tried to kick his car, maybe he could claim the stand-your-ground law...

Good luck with that. Fear of a gun is stupid. It's nothing without an operator, and nothing short of Jeebus hisself can eliminate the depredations humans foist on one another. You gonna "kindness" your way out of a rape?

Hey Guys,

FFS, Please stop the "discussion" about guns, etc. They have no place in this thread and is just going to get it sent to CSM.

Thank you.

Agreed. Survival when riding on a bike while threatened by a road-raging driver is all about keeping your head straight, maintaining control of your bike, and disengaging at the first opportunity. Anything else is a pointless discussion. Save the macho posturing for JM.

Yep.

Unless you are riding with the biker gang from the first Mad Max movie, in the words of Rambo "Let it Go."

If you ARE riding with the Toecutter, however, it's Game On.

I'm honestly surprised that more of you aren't just-a-waitin' for someone to even hint at erratic driving so that you can remain sure of what your bike's roll-on acceleration is like. Dangers of riding a slow bike I guess.

Yep. That's generally my first reaction to vehicular stupidity. GTFO.
