The problem I'm seeing pop up here is advocating the OP to resort to violence. He'd be picking a fight that he has little chance of winning, especially if it were someone like me with more padding/armour than a riot cop, and my...........temperament. I know if I'm on legal or grey area trails, came around a corner and didn't chop the throttle to slow down as quick as he thought I should, then took a swing at me with a walking stick, two things would happen.
1) With MX gear over top of Dainese body armour and a fiberglass/kevlar helmet on, the blow(s) wouldn't do a hell of a lot.
2) Having just been assaulted, and knowing my temper, I'd most likely go into the red, drop my bike, take his stick from him, and beat the living *** out of him with it, probably breaking a few bones on purpose so the message lingers for a few weeks. Some of the ish I've seen suggested to the OP in this thread will end up getting him hurt, possibly badly, and I find it to be cavalier and without any rational thought.
All I can say is you were not there to witness what happened in the first place and to see the female further down the path in tears was shocking.
How brave of you to keep all the armour on so you are able to kick the shit out of someone,
you are one brave thug and to top it off I bet you'd be bragging to your mates in the local pub
about beating up this pensioner who waved and branded a stick at you for screaming by them with a massive killing machine
So you think I resorted to violence after being attacked on by a mindless thug ?
I wished I'd been on my own walking and not with the wife and dog,
as i don't brag about my temper the b*stard would be in hospital now.
I must remember to watch a Rambo film again so i can practice sewing my arm up in the wilderness.
Oh by the way I don't HATE every off road biker I see, but just the one who clearly endangered my family.
I hate RED DWARF
