No other assumptions?

Wonder how he felt towards the Crotch Rocket racer boys?


....well let's assume shall we?

I bet he was like, "I'll show those riders how it's done on 4 wheels!" "I'm gonna pull up all high and mighty in my LAMBORGHINI give them a what-fer and tell them in my most superior "I drive a Lambo and YOU don't" voice, to take it to the track!

I bet that's EXACTLY what was going to happen, sans CHP...
I can't tell if you are agreeing with me, or disagreeing. So I'll assume the former.

That's a new one - I've never seen a trucker chick taillight. Somehow, it seems to fit with the patch on the vest

Must be a Florida thing...
Only riders I see out on a cold day or in the rain around here are the HD's.
Of course the diehards usually don't dress like the pirates.

Beto,
I like those two last pictures of the old (er) guys in the fog (the misty cloudy kind, not age or drug induced). Whether you relate to their style or speed or skill, these two guys are out on an adventure, a most excellent adventure, one that can be told once back home with others. Of course many of the pictures are just that. However these two seem to catch that sense of folks going outside the normal box of their peers and doing what they have wanted to do.
Thanks for the work you do going through the many pictures and sending us images to chew on. Good man (or are you woman,, haven't checked your profile)

I've learned that you can eat an entire heard of elephants, but you alone can only do it one bite at a time. Reversing a law is very difficult, and requires a victim of said law. Each and every law has to be challenged to fit our current mind-frame and social understanding. A "California" stop at a guided intersection is not allowed in most places. However, we know that you can approach at a low rate of speed, and successfully negotiate a merge into oncoming traffic. Unfortunately, the law can't be revoked because there are far too many drivers who push the limits of timing a merge. Thusly, we accord to impugn anyone who does not follow the law(at the officers discretion). In a world where the citations issued are not revenue generating ventures(the past), the mainstay of the law is to allow for a clear understanding of fault.

Thank you for your kind words NCS. My son and I just rode the BRP and Skyline Drive, lots of foggy mornings but we didn't have the cajones those 2 guys have, we waited till the fog lifted. We saw a nasty crash on BRP that reassured us we made the right decision.

It helps, but not necessarily. What it would require is a sympathetic ear from your state congressman / woman, and more people who want that law reversed / passed / changed. Big help if you can re-write the law and present it to them, and work with them for the change.

It will require lots of time and effort. Been there, done that, doing it still. It will probably take years too, depending on the law.

There is a good reason for all of this. It keeps "tehre ought to be a law!!!1!" people from making our lives a total miserable experience.
