While I tend to agree and have little compassion for idiots, don't forget that these fools account for the accident statistics that our lovely NJ insurance rates are based upon. Basically, their bad judgement impacts you and me in the wallet.

^^^^^

I see this all the time even in town... riders getting on it where there is traffic and driveways where someone could pull out or turn in front of them. If I'm going to open the bike up I'm on a back road that I know and has open flat fields on each side so I can see if any animals are planning on ruining my day. Even an open road with trees has hidden dangers.

You have a point there.Some people get on bikes quads etc and its instant butthole just add throttle.Last summer coming bacck from edison in less then 5 miles I nearly had 2 near misses.1 car didnt have his blinker on thought he was going straight and he turns right and I almost eat the curb. about a mile or 2 later A women in a mini van does a rolling stop past a stop sign off Rt 27 ,she was gonna make a left I got on top of her doing about 40 and started locking it up and almost sliding the bike out on me. I was gonna go to the beach that day on the bike and wa slike thats it time to park it and get the convertible out before I end up dead.My buddy and co worker who use to stunt liked to ride fast .1 day I asked him did he ever think of some one turning out and dying or blowing a stop sign etc as you came up on them doing 90 you wouldnt be able tor react.He said nope never you dont think about that stuff in your 20s.Soooo maybe they need to make it you cant buy any sport bikes until your 30 and can have some restraint.

Deer, turkeys etc.

I've almost hit a turkey on the bike before(on a trail ). Hit a turkey in my car, and I'm glad I wasn't on a bike when it happened.
Shattered a headlight, left a dent in my hood and fender.

I took my road test on deerslayR's XR650L.
They had the cones for the weave at the moped length- 6 feet instead of 12 for motorcycles, I ran over one, whoops. I've done it since on the DRZ, and its cake.
