Time to fight back! Give 'em a taste of the whack-bonk!
Using a foam pool noodle and a wooden dowel it's time to give a little comeuppance to bad drivers. Add insult to injury by inscribing messages on the noddle, then giving the offending vehicle acouppla whacks to let them know they did you wrong.
Enough talk, let's whack-bonk!

Step 1: Tools + Materials
Step 2: Cut Foam Noodle
If unsure cut a longer portion of foam than required and trim off excess as desired.
Pool noodle is a funny name.But since noodles aren't hollow, these should really be called foam bucatini. But I digress. Where was I? Ahh yes, cutting the foam. Cut foam to length and insert dowel, there should be enough friction between the dowel and the foam to hold it in place. If not, use a liberal amount of hot glue to secure the dowel in place.
Step 3: Holster
Remove the top and bottom of the container. Create two small openings on the centre portion for cable-ties which will be used to fix the holster to the bike.
Find an appropriate place on your bike which will accept the whack-bonk. The placement needs to ensure quick deployment while keeping the bike functional. I chose the rear left hand side, just above the passenger pegs. Cable ties were laced through the openings on the plastic container and attached to the turn signal.
Step 4: Share Your Thoughts
With permanent marker, embellish your whack-bonk with colourful sayings. Selectively place the sayings around the foam so that you have a choice of message to send.
Step 5: Dole Out Bonks
Go ahead, give 'em a couple of bonks to pay attention. Let those bad drivers know how you feel with a solid smack and a sassy saying.
Be safe, and have fun!
