What to do when someone hits the same jump and is 6" away from my bars in mid air

I thought about confronting the parent, by I am sure you all know how these "moto dads" can be.

Back when I had the (on-road) trackday bug I would let some things slide but if someone was truly making the track dangerous for others I would have a talk with them. Not a chest puffed out confrontation, a simple chat. On the flip side if I inadvertantly pulled a scetchy pass on someone because I miscalculated their next move or pressed a situation too hard from being caught up in the moment I would seek them out and appologize in the pits. Almost always the interaction was a positive one. In fact I've made a few friends that started with this type of conversation.
Motorsports are dangerous. We don't need to turn them into cannonball runs, or worse, have some sue happy numskull manage to win a lawsuit and get a track closed down. If your track is like the wild-wild west have a chat with the owner/organizer and ask them to be a bit more proactive.
