Anyone conceal carry/self defense knife while riding?

Thinking about caring a fixed blade, typically if I ride I'm not normally going to many establishments other than work. But my fear is a disgruntled driver on the road that gets out of his car. I mind my own business and I do not instigate motorists faults. But there is always someone that takes it to far.
Scenario I had today.

So I'm on my way home down a 3 have highway that is posted at 60mph which is way underrated and the average speed is 75mph for most. Dude in f150 sitting in fast lane doing 70. 3 wide blocked Lanes. No one's budging. So eventually the f150 does 72 mph creeps past. He is almost all the way over in the middle Lane I'm on the throttle to pass mfer comes back over and came within 4ft of clipping me for no reason. I just kept going. Wtf. I did nothing but mind my own business. And I left him plenty of space. Now if he would of hit me and someone how I was still okay to move and he attacked me I wouldn't just have my fist. Anyone think about some f'd up scenarios and or carries?

Hmmmm. The first problem I have here is that you're riding a ZX-10R and you let an F1-Fiddy get that close to you. Why not just turn that right hand a little bit more down and actually put it behind you? I would suggest you put the bike in power mode 'F' and not 'L' when riding it around though.

Second, a fixed blade or gun is a great idea. I can't imagine any scenarios where going down on a bike wouldn't impale you or the weapon would get tossed from you. Not at all. I'm a big advocate for carrying weapons at the speed limit fully exposed to the environment.

Or just go full-tilt and ride one of these to work everyday.


This is an option also...


If Chuck Norris can do it, so can you! It's the complete definition of "KawiSEXY"!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Well if chuck Norris approves then I must abide by his decision lol. I was already at his front fender when he came over. I was on double Fu powermode only on reflashed bikes have.

SkyDork,
Did you take the pic of the scooter-mounted cannon? If so, where? I saw one of the same in a tank museum in France, but I don't remember the pit shown in your photo next to it.

Nah. I google searched for that. I would love to see that in person though and actually try that thing out! I'm curious what the recoil on that thing is?

When I come up behind all 3 lanes plugged at the speed limit I usually don't wait too long before I wheelie by them on the shoulder.

I agree with Skydork. Pass and get the hell out of there. Why not just carry a folding knife in your pocket? I have had someone do the same BS on the frwy. I threw the Fing knife at his windshield as I pinned the throttle. Problem solved....

It's not too often I even remotely disagree with The Dork... and I really don't in this case... be here are a few thoughts from someone who carries more often than not.

A knife is useless. It will much more likely end up doing you harm than good in almost any situation. If you couldn't handle the threat in a normal fistfight, chances are they would be able to take it from you anyway. A knife is a deadly weapon, but an altogether inferior one to any projectile firing device.... why bother when given the choice?

Legal carry should be an educated effort (training, knowing the law/your rights, situational awareness, etc), and there are very VERY few roadside situations where legal carry will help you out at all. You really don't have the right to brandish or use deadly force in just about any road rage encounter (in my limited knowledge, anyway... states vary ;) ). I absolutely encourage RESPONSIBLE people to carry, but part of being responsible is to educate yourself on the law(s), and to do your best to AVOID situations that lead up to needing deadly force. Carrying generally restricts where you can go and what you can do... doing so without knowing the consequences is perilous, to say the least. And crashing on your side-arm would suck, absolutely no doubt there.

Even if you do carry, the solution in that situation was to hang back and let discretion be the better part of valor. It will be almost every time, in my experience. All that said, I still carry whenever & wherever I can. But if you're not into training, education, and being more aware of your surroundings, don't bother.... just pin it and don't play fuck-fuck games with stupid people.

Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.
