Not to get on a rant, I don't tailgate and actively try not to, but to throw an object towards a vehicle behind you is not only moronic, but extremely dangerous.

I hope that you're not one of the bikers that ride in a row of 50 without a gap for safe passing, either...
So, tailgating a motorcycle with an automobile isn't moronic and extremely dangerous?

I hope you are not one of the car drivers that treats all motorcycle riders like they are in some biker gang and we all should be looked down upon and thought of as a bunch of hooligans splitting lanes.

Actually, you seem more like the oblivious car diver who will just claim, "I didn't see him" after running a motorcyclist over.

I've taken many advanced motorcycle safety training and riding courses where I've been taught by experts from race bike riders to active duty state police motor officers. Some were multi-day courses. I can turn figure-8's all day long inside the lines of a parking spot on a 900lb Valkyrie to dragging a knee at 100mph in a turn on a Hyabusa. I've never been ticketed while riding and I've never crashed in close to a million miles on a motorcycle.

So, basically your assumptions are 180 degrees out of phase.

Only an @$$hole would do that. tossing a plug or anything.
First it is unsafe and not only to whomever you are having a hissy fit with, but everyone on the road behind him.
As most will swerve to miss it, without looking to see if there is a vehicle beside them. or slam on the brakes and cause a mess.
The new thing for the entitled motorbike riders (not all but many) is if they don't get their way, they knock mirrors off cars, then run away like the cowards they are.
His action of tossing a spark plug is no different than a kid tossing a rock from an overpass. both are stupid. but a person with a lic to drive a motorbike should know better.
Things like this make me sick.

The advent of dash cams is blowing your narrative of motorbike riders are angels and cage drivers are the issue.
Like any group some are good people while on their bike and some are twits, anyone posting that they toss a spark plug and risk not only your target but everyone on the road behind him falls under the group of twit.

And what exactly is wrong with that? Having a gap, for some clown-like. OH, I do not know who? That would, could not, and unable to make that maneuver in the first place.

Presents a disaster just waiting for some simple-minded idiot, to jump the gun, and take out some good folks.

So to that clown, I say that is a safer way for a crowd of bikes. To move down the road. They pay and own as much of that asphalt as you do........ wait your turn like everyone else.

Sometimes ass holes get what they rightfully deserve. Drivers crowd bikers all the time. See these jerkoffs tailgate 2 up riders, rain or shine.

They're mad for a few reasons, the guy has the balls to ride, IS not putting up with traffic jams, and is most likely just a plain happier person.

I was the 30 years I road, Helmet protest, 100s of bikes and all.

FWIW when the MSF recruited me to be an instructor, I reviewed their lesson plans and while I don't recall them advising students to throw spark plugs at other motorists, I can't rule out other schools teaching @CJJon that.

I definitely have my issues on the road, but the thing I always try to remember is that everyone has a different idea of what is the CORRECT way to drive. Some people think it's ok to hang out in the left lane driving under the speed limit. My wife is one of them. And NO ONE in the world is going to convince her to change her way of doing things.

So, knowing that, I always do my best to leave anger out of the situation. People aren't generally deliberately doing dangerous or disrespectful or idiotic things. Those people just have a different idea of what is dangerous, etc.

There are two kinds of people on the road. The idiots who drive slower than me, and the dangerous fools who drive faster. I'm the only one who has it right.

I think those statements above are how many people think when they are driving. And that's why those people are angry all the time. If you go in believing that everyone on the road should think like you, you are going to be disappointed.

If you toss a sparkplug or any thing at my car that could potentially cause me to crash, you won't like my response.

Strong argument for them making sure you crash.

...Some have missed the 'back in the day' part of my post. You know, before there was an internet and all the associated keyboard tough guys it has spawned.

Funny there are also those that don't understand that tailgating a motorcycle at highway speeds is life threatening to the motorcycle rider...not so much to the douche nozzle driving in a protected cage.

Some of us just don't give a shit. You throw something lethal at me and something lethal will be thrown back

May as well direct this thread towards "In which U.S city or state do the worst drivers exist?" I have traveled coast-to-coast on business almost all of the last 40 years, so have some definite opinions: Best, most polite and safest drivers: Seattle area: Worst, most dangerous, most hateful drivers: Boston.
