i like not having to pay a lot each time i ride street (though sometimes it seems like i do. do i need to fix my bike again yet?)

i get claustrophobic in cars. my helmet is nice and breezy and i have no walls closing me in. less conversation, too.

People get killed on tracks too.

I like the thrill of threading through traffic, or passing someone on a country highway.

Maybe what I like about street the most is I have more maneuverability and acceleration than almost everything around me.

I'd probably like the street more on a sportster too.

And you will fail at making an "on purpose" drama thread. Only a select few are capable of that.

I definately have more fun on the track not having to worry about so many different things that can happen and feeling comfortable leaning over, although you get an entirely different experience and satisfaction when you are able to see some of the views from riding street

If you like Streets better than Track either...

A. Your Doing It Wrong
B. You Ride Like A Bat Outta on the Streets

BTW I won't give up the streets anytime soon. Im too much of a Poser to do that

I love riding period ...my odometer shows it.

I try and stay sane ...but that throttle is very seductive, the feeling that comes with twisting your wrist.

Its a great sense of freedom from everythingelse on your mind, there isn't much that compares. Its simply heaven, except for when someone on a cell phone with not one intention of "sharing the hwy" come over on you.

If anyless than 210% of your attention is on what you are doing with that machine between your legs, you dont belong on the street with us.
