    I experienced that kind of thing on a regular basis years ago when I lived in So. Cal.when motorcycles (and riders) were very unpopular. I used to ride with my hunting knife strapped on for all to see, and I'm sure the sight of it deterred many a confrontation. I know the feeling, just glad it worked out the way it did for you. Since living in Arizona (bilker heaven) I've never had even a rude gesture when riding, maybe it's because there are so many more of us here. My wife says that I look too mean with all of my tats and that's why no-one bugs me. The Laughlin River Run starts here in 3 days so we're looking forward to a week of great fun & riding. Street Thunder, the sound of 50,000 + motorcycles, music to my ears.

    Do I look too mean? Either way, I'm living proof that the Lord does change lives!

    I was speaking to others. I had it right from the start that your move was legitimate.

    My point was that such a call - "Gang members are signing their own death warrants" (or words to that effect) - is a slippery slope. YOU may not consider a certain group to be a 'Gang', but it might serve someone else's purposes to do so. The idea was 'Who gets to make that call?' You might not be so happy to find yourself included in someone's definition of "Gang", for example.

    I ride and carry as well. I am glad that you are ok. It is unfortunate that these people arent considered domestic terrorists and fair game with no bag limit.

    I also think that being a gang member should be a signed death warrant. I guess there is a reason I am not president.

    At the next light, I pulled up behind them but stopped about two car lengths back. Suddenly, a big guy got out of the front passenger side, and a smaller guy got out from the rear drivers side. They started walking towards me. I gave the smaller guy a quick glance and then locked eyes with the big guy. I reached into my vest and put my hand on my gun. The big guy recognized the signifigance of my hand in the vest. His eyes got big and he and he yelled at the other guy to get back in the car, now!!!.

    When the light turned green, the driver took off like a bat out of hell. I didn't get a plate number but I was just happy to see them go.
    Glad you were not hurt. My mom rides and to be honest, I don't know what I'd do if some punk ran her off or over. She doesn't carry, unfortunately.

    Well, those guys were ALREADY on their way back to hassle HardCorps53, so I do not understand what he had to lose by SEEMING to have a weapon. Last summer I was accosted by two punks with knives in the park. I was not carrying at the time, but simply reaching for my pistol (lots of draw practice = muscle memory) saved me some heartache, not to mention injury or death. Just SEEING me reach for a non-existent firearm was enough to send the scamps running, and they had already made some big promises about what they intended to do to me (nothing good).

    My point is, when there is nothing left to lose, then you do whatever you can to end the threat, be it bluff, run, or scratch and bite. You already know the old saw about there being no such thing as a fair fight.

    having traveled over 300,000 miles on my bikes ovr the years. I Have had a few instances with cages not respecting my space (I did not see you) or otherwise. Have kept loose change in my jacket pocket which does the trick just as well as ball bearings but will not impede other vehicles. (last resort) I always have my little friend G27 in my jacket/vest or on my belt if the need ever arises that it is called for.

    In my state, unless they have a weapon, are significantly younger, you are disabled or physically outclassed, no.

    If someone tries to ever run those of you who ride (I'm one of them) off the road, run over you, or even actively threaten to do so, pull your firearm and point it at them. If you shoot or not will depend on your individual circumstance.

    You are on a bike, they are in a car. That kind of behavior is lethal force folks.
