Or, someone carries while riding? Well I carry in my car. So that's not a clear win for the rider either.
You can carry in MA?

YUP!!! Anyone that gets pissed off when they ride is doing it wrong.

I actually like lane encroachments and inattentive drivers because they make my ride more interesting and fun.

Watch this, compare the indicated speed to the apparent speed of Irenecanary on So. Grade, and let me know what you think.

Whatta putz! His name should be Patrick DOUCHETTE.
"it's the same stupid turn I almost crashed in last time"
"uh, I don't know what happened" I'll tell ya what "happened" Mr. Douchette, You a no talent wanker who can't hold a line in even a mild turn at, what, like 35mph, without running wide and stuffing that poor little Ninja into the dirt.
EPIC FAIL!

Thank You & Good day

Dude, He's a troll who probably doesn't own a bike and doesn't have a license, and is probably 13 years old. I'm basing this on the content of "all" of his posts... This is the same invididual who argued about car performance on track, for several posts, then admitted he'd never been on a racetrack in a car.

Your original statement I responded to (as most everything you type) is based on bizarro world logic and physics. Wish you well. There is much you don't get, and much to learn on this site. Never the two shall meet is my guess.

Maybe they watched Born Losers one too many times and forgot how it ended?
