You realize how these 2 statements are completely contradictory, right? You do realize that wheelies on public roads is breaking traffic laws, right?

Some people are typing it up and talking about, but there's photographic proof of you doing it everywhere you post on these boards!

moderate? JUST over the limit on the straits and a tad over the posted limit in the turns. But that option was not up there.

Moderate pace = speedlimit +10 - 15, straights and turns.

Also, where the leader is not lost out of sight and where the group can quickly come back together on the straights in case there was some discrepancy in speed through the turns.

+1 These types of threads give bikers a bad name. I like backroad riding as much as the next guy. But, don't broadcast triple digits on a public forum. Not flaming. Just awareness.

Also.. The only problem with what your saying is that the pic could be of ANYWHERE. Im not posting a meet spot & routes and inviting people to come along and talking about it. The pic is there, and u cant prove where or when that happened, but cops can bust everyone on a sunday ride by doing some simple reading and just hang out behind a sign along the route. Ive seen 15+ ppl get a ticket at the same time.. So dont say it doesnt happen

I can ride all day 10 over and that's my usual commuting speed on the freeways.

Moderate pace to me is up to double recommended speed limits in the curves(yellow and black) and twenty over speedlimit.

Reasons: u'd be an idiot to get pulled over on backroads cuz a cop caught you speeding in a straight unless ur on a bike not made for cornering.



As for forum talk, cops will assume you are speeding period. Its no surprize you bought a sportbike for it.

lol...sew you? Sew you what? Like a sweater? I don't do that .

And there are no problems in my quoting...my button works just fine. The error was in highlighting before hitting the bold button, for when you are lighting a sentence from beginning to end of a sentence, and you stop over a punctuation mark or symbol, it auto highlights all punction marks and symbols immediately after it. I intended to highlight only the elipses, but it auto highlighted the bracket and slash as well. I didn't think to go back and fix it, so the bold tag interrupted the quote tag. Sue me.

lol again, at your next fail. There was no ride time, location, or meet spot posted. This a general question that could ANYWHERE at ANYTIME.

Whatever dude.. ur too fcking cool for the internet..

Mudbug attacked me about the pic which has no evidence to show where, when etc... OP is talking about Organized rides and what is acceptable for a pace etc. When he is clearly the one who sets up all the smr's that I have seen posted here. I simply implied that keeping speeds & all the antics that go on out there for the poeple who went..

Can u please try an keep up with the and stop bring up moot points?
