    I personaly will go with none of the above.
    I understand your frustration.
    I have goten use to the the inconciderations of the cagers I share the road with and try to just keep a big enough gap between them and myself to give me a way out if I need one. I know this isn't always possible so I just try to be ready for any stupid stunt they might try, so I wont be surprised and end-up injuring myself.

        Buy a louder horn. Freeway blasters (132dB) are like $18 at Pepboys.
        Add reflective 3M safety-vehicle tape to your forks, a bit at the swing arm to increase your visibility. Wear bright clothes. Anything you can do to increase your visibility is one less risk you need to take.
        Finally, as for vindictive natures -- find out if your state has the ability to report drivers as dangerous/medically incapacitated/drunk/drug-addicted. In Florida, you can report them via the web here:

              A loud horn does help, trust me
              It does startle the driver & those around.

              Cagers are something that all of us have to deal with, we all will have to watch them because we know they are not watching us.
              I just keep alert.

              Today while I was blasting down a straight away a person in a car came towards the road down their driveway, I sat up, slowed down just to be ready for the idiot to pull out on the road in front of me, they stopped(thankfully) & I then continued on my way. Had another person pull out in front of me, "No ma'am, I wasn't in your back seat, I was just inches off your SUV's bumper. Perhaps if you drove something that fit your size you would't had jumped when you looked in the rearview mirror. Sorry I made you jump when I past you & honked, it's only a 130db horn "

              Make a place on your handlebar area that you can keep some quarter size washers for tossing over your shoulder when you get past them but only do that if they almost get you killed or they are driving like a complete moron & try to intimidate you while you ride.

              I have been thinking of carrying my 12 gauge but I just know that some law enforcement official would freak out, pull me over & tell me that I can't have that with me after I get a nice pair of matching bracelets
              I don't know how fast my bike goes, I've never stopped to find out.

                    There's always gonna be idiots out there not paying attention, or thinking " its a motorcycle, they can stop quicker if I wanna pull out" , or just using poor judgement out on the roads. But the more you can do make yourself visible to them, the more the odds swing in your direction in a positive way.

                    Nothing is 100%, but the more you can do to help your own cause, the better.

                      I act as if everyone else on the road is trying to kill me, and that usually works.

                          Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you!
