Very interesting! What if you connected them to forward and aft water pistols and loaded them up with coloured water. Might give a few others a bit of a shock :roll:

What a surprise when you turn on your turn signal, and blow the horn. High beam doesn't seem to work either, but the guy in front will get out of the way!

This is a speciality shop.
Altho never implemented,the flame thrower was one idea :lol:
The next discarded idea is a spring loaded machete for the occasional attempted bike jacking.
They would be easy to locate.Look ma...no feet.

If I had these, there would be a few less cell phone junky drivers, teenage tailgaters and other various and sundry dimwits that drive too fast and see too slow -- but, that's just me! :D

I agree!! Every time I get a bad driver around they are on the phone!! Here in AZ. they are talking about hand free only driving.

Wouldn't it be nice to have one of those buttons activate a cell phone jamming signal for about a quarter mile radius around you!

Which would mean that everybody on their phones while driving (which around here is about 75% of people) suddenly, as they get close to you, start fiddling with their phones trying to figure out why it stopped working, instead of looking outside of their car at the motorcycle they're about to hit.

Besides, it would not take long for them to figure out that their phones quite working when they are near a motorcycle.

Ok, set it to work on a mile radius, then they will be no where near you and they can just run into the nearest ditch while looking down at their phone.

OK . . . turn off my Geek mind set so that I don't see the home owners living along the road waiting, gun at the ready, for that bike that goes by every time the cell phone stops working and then starts working again after they pass.

Now. . .Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha! That is funny :lol:

It is fun to fantasize about what we could do if only we could get away with it.

I have, in my callow youth, banged on the window of a car that was moving into my lane and crowding me into the line of parked cars. The result was the woman (Who was not on a cell phone because they were not invented then) was so startled she nearly lost control of the pink caddy she was about to kill me with. I nearly died anyway in the resulting mayhem.

I have seen somewhere on the internet, a fridge magnet that a rider can slap onto a car as they go past. The message is something along the lines of "The was thrown onto your car by a motorcycle rider because . . . . . . . and you are an ignorant driver". I was tempted, but then again, people can get kind of nuts when you touch their car.

I had an acquaintance who rode a gold wing that told me he carried old spark plugs in the fairing pocket. If someone tailgated him too bad he would begin dropping them on the road next to his foot. They bounce in unpredictable ways and will break head lights and windshields. I never saw him do it, but he claimed it was highly effective. I am surprised he didn't get shot.

In the end, after all my fantasies, I keep going back to what mama always told me. "There is no cure for stupid. You just have to work around it."

I always wanted a led display like a scrolling marque so I can type messages for it to display such as

:ever hear of cruise control you frikkin moron? Pick a speed: or

:You get half the road but you cannot take it out of the centre:
