Well...


To his defense... (damn it)


Blood alcool content is expressed in "permille" in Germany (‰). So it "makes" sense.

The percentage equivalent would be 0.05%, not 0.005% by the way.

I'm still trying to equate filtering and running red lights as equally safe behaviors.

WR, riding or driving drunk is a bad idea. Running red lights on a regular basis WILL get somebody hurt, it's just a matter of how many times you do it. I do envy you your autobahn riding, since the speed limits here in the US are arbitrary and often idiotic. But I agree with the other posters that your point of view is..... special.
I'm unsubscribing from this thread, since it's now "Wraith Rider against the board" and he's clearly losing.

I'm out.

Generally, this statement is correct. But for you, I make an exception.

You should consider to mark your calendar Tex. The day I agree with you is undoubtedly a day to remember!

Ha ha

Yeah, his posts just kinda suck you into thinking he might be able to grasp things, then as time is wasted on repeated efforts to share that which most everyone else agrees upon it is revealed that grasping is beyond his skill set.

I don't know if it is a language issue, or just a very warped perspective. In the end it felt like there will never be a meeting of the minds with WR and the nuclear option presented itself as the best way to deal with this.

Because talking about alcohol levels in percent is quite unusual around here. Per mill is just more common. Dunno why some have such problems with that.

It's a matter of how one does it. How often one does it doesn't matter at all.

So you have 25 years of experience with not having experience...
You're very egocentric. There are many easy things for me, but only because it's easy for me doesn't mean it's easy for everyone.
Really, stop being that egocentric and it might become a bit easier to understand others.

Drunk drivers are responsible for almost 1/4th of all road fatalities here. Really sorry if I΄m unable to understand those people.

And sorry you should be. Damned to fear what you don't understand and not able to change anything, because you don't understand.

Wraith - I'd like to get you to answer one question with a "Yes" or a "No". The group that was riding together and started this incident is not an isolated event in this country. This group and others like it have large group rides in large cities with heavy traffic. Part of the standard behavior for these groups is to ride anywhere they want to in heavy traffic. This does not only include filtering. It involves riding on the wrong side of the road against oncoming traffic. It includes riding on sidewalks where people are walking. It includes running red lights in heavy traffic forcing other vehicles to stop even though they have a green light. It includes hitting and kicking cars that get caught in the middle of an intersection when the group rides through. We are not talking about a single rider or a small group of riders. We are not talking about riding through a red light when no other vehicles are around. We are talking about a group of 100 or more riders riding all over the road and sidewalk in heavy traffic, running a red light and swarming around a car that got caught in the middle of the intersection, kicking and hitting the car as they go by, bringing all other traffic to a stop. So there you have it; that is HOW they do it. Do you think this kind of riding is ok? Please answer "yes" or "no". Please do not qualify your answer or change the question. Please do not quote just one line of my post and answer just a part of the question. I simply want to know if you think having a large group of riders acting like this in these conditions is acceptable. It will help me understand your point of view.

In the US it is about half, and astonishingly, about half of motorcycle fatalities are also drug or alcohol impaired.

This I have to see ....

If he does it, will someone copy it in a response?

I don't want to get in the habit of clicking on WR's "View Post" link, if I can avoid it, on the off chance that WR might actually clarify their point of view.

This sounds terrible. Do you have any statistics on the number of deaths and injuries caused by this psychotic behavior before I decide if I should be worried? Or is this just another attempt to make us all believe that we need to spend more money on law enforcement by spreading fear?
