Best way to avoid tailgater's ?

  1. Riding home today and the 4WD behind (city commuting type) me decided to stick his bull car up my arse :evil:, this is one thing I really can't stand because I know if I have to stop in a hurry the thing will mow me down like grass. Whats the best tactic to deal with such drives, speeding up sometime works, but other times you still have the tailgater behind you just going faster, sure I can go allot faster but the traffic cops are probably going to pick on the bike and the road in question is a 80k single track road with lots of blind corners and crests made worse by crap blowing all over the road by the storms we have had in the last few days.

    Maybe I need some James Bond oil slick or something :)
