Read the 'comments' section (and if you are one of the Stunters try reading it without moving your lips )

What? A bunch of keyboard cowboys making comments?

fargo n.d. 2 or 3 years ago. squid doing a high speed wheely in a 30 mph residential zone. 16 year old girl pulled out in front of him. HIS FAULT . he was dead on the spot. even thou it wasn't her fault and she wasn't charged she still has to live with it. so yeah, that kind of idiocy on the street does affect others. ROC is pure bullshit and driven by mob mentality.

doesn't anyone read the whole thread?

You know, it pisses me off that there all these sanctimonious pointdexter types posting on this forum and claiming to be the 'real motorcyclists', have totally forgotten what brought us here in the first place. pathetic really. If we stick together we can beat the man.

I ride because I enjoy it.





Is it more complicated than that?

Does there need to be any other reason?

Why does "the man" need to be beaten? He doesn't bother me.




If there's a reason, I didn't get that memo.

Why doesn't the car simply brake and stop?

A guest? In fact it's like me and someone else living in our house, both of us paying for a janitor. And than that janitor tries to establish the rule that the other guy paying him may not dance in our house instead of just walking around like I do. I'd tell this stupid janitor to fuck of, because that's the way stupid rules should be handled.

Why do you think a rule is good just because it's a rule?

Good, bad, or indifferent, rules are for everybody regardless of their "excuses", if you feel that you have the right to pick and choose, then everyone else does if you want to be equitable.

Do you really want roads to be a no rule free for all, or is it just all about you?

Trust me, you'll figure it out eventually.

Well for 1 ...around here they are now enforcing ass on the seat, If you stand to releave ass cramps or what ever , they will charge you with stunting, and both feet on pegs at all times except when stopped.
While getting insurance today."Oh, this isn't a sport bike is it"?

By what standard do you determine if a rule is good or bad?

Some laws ARE pretty stupid. They're put into effect by people who thought it might be a good idea , but know little about it. Some times they think they know better or they're trying to SAVE THE WORLD or SAVE US FROM OURSELVES. Just because some BOOB's pass a law doesn't mean it's sensible or just.
