Yeah, you get those.

Had one jerkwad actually chase me in a 4x4 once down virginia ave in south baltimore, me on my trike and with a load of groceries in the back - I led him a merry chase indeed, cutting down into the local ballfield and using the superior cornering of my trike to keep his drunk ass from bumping me...while trying to nail his headlights with my bit o chain.

(never did score a hit on him, but no biggie, he didn't hit me neither, ha !)

He got bored with the game rather quickly and split, but the tiremarks were there for weeks, heh, look out for the ruts when sliding into third, kiddos.

The close brush that had me really shocked was on the way to work one morning on my Golden Bullet TTLX and a city bus decided to pass me, on the left is as proper, but so close he actually brushed my left shoulder and tapped my handlebars - one inch closer and I woulda been road pizza...the road had no margin, and I was like 6 inches from the curb.

I use two rearview mirrors when I can, and my Targa has four...I do keep an eye on them, WILL see ya comin, and will have a chain-swing reception planned for ya when you get there....most folks with this game in mind veer off when they see the chain deployed.
