Hey..I have done that before when I was on my Harley....I always carry a handfull of old lug nuts for dimwits that like to get 5 feet behind me....

One night in the mid 80's I was driving home from a long day at was like 11:30PM 4 punks , guys thought it was funny to get about 3 feet off my back 70 mph...I speed up they sped up, I changed lanes , they changed lanes...3 miles of this I took my helmet off...and chucked it over my shoulder and through their windshield...I bet they thought that was real funny too, since I saw their taillights three sepperate times as they spun out.... They were all college age guys....probibly drinking...

Only time I ever had to go that far to protect my safety.
