Re: Nice work Einstein

what do you guys do to stop dickheads tailgating you? I don't fancy getting run over after i've already fallen off...

And i've found most people don't respond well to a look and the finger..

Re: Nice work Einstein

I know a guy (in a car) who throws a handfull of nails at other cars that cut him off (not recommended)
but I have seen a picture of a guy on the R1 forum who has a wristband with about 3 tire spikes inside

Re: Nice work Einstein

I do a quick stoppie and then accelerate. They lock up their brakes and freak...usually learn to keep their distance after that

Drivers blamed for most bike crashes

TWO-thirds of motorbike accidents involving other vehicles in Victoria are not caused by the motorcyclists, insurance figures show.

Motorcyclists were at fault in only 32 per cent of accidents involving other vehicles in the three years to 2003, analysis by Swann Insurance shows.
Transport Accident Commission figures show 39 motorcyclists died in Victoria last year. Those deaths made up 12 per cent of the road toll, yet motorcycles represent just 3 per cent of registered vehicles.

Of the 39 deaths last year, 27 involved other vehicles.

Swann Insurance general manager Duncan Brain said yesterday: "These figures confirm what motorcycle riders have been saying for some time -- that motorcyclists generally are not to blame for multiple-vehicle crashes.

"The figures send a clear message to all motorists to be aware of motorcyclists.

"Drivers are encouraged to look out for motorcycles, check blind spots and ensure it is safe when changing lanes.

"Motorcycles can be difficult to see and other drivers must be extra alert, particularly in wet weather, heavy traffic and when visibility is poor."

But motorcyclists should also make sure they understand the risks of riding, Mr Brain said.

"By their nature, motorcycles are relatively exposed compared to cars so it is important riders remain vigilant, anticipate risks and above all, take care on their bikes," he said.
Truth! Sorry about this everybody I just had to, it's like waking an ancient tomb filled with knowledge and history.
