slow down methods for residents?

i just got done reading the closed thread about racer road and how somebody was that the cops wer out there in force and how residents have resorted to putting stuff out on the road. I was just wondering if any of you had any other ideas for residents to use to make the bikes slow down? I have an idea... and doubt there would be any liability if there was an accident because it could be blamed on rider error. what if there was some pretty blonde laying out in a chair in a bikini by the road. taget fixation much? i mean, there is nothing on the road... but maybe it would cause people to slow down and enjoy the scenery? if you're going too fast and just catch a glimpse and loose your focus... well, survival of the fittest i guess. if i lived there... i might try it, maybe even with a manequin because most people wouldn't realize it's not a real person

Thats not a bad idea. Bevo, your pic didn't work for me. My grandparents used to live on a dirt road and dug a trench. But that wasn't for riders. I say do that or put a mechanical bull in the ditch like and have it simulate walking towards the road?

People have the free will to drive as fast as they want, they just have to suffer the consequences of their actions. Tickets and accidents.
On the other hand just because somebody lives on a curvy road in the country doesn't give them a right to tell others how they should conduct themselves. If they are bothered by a steady stream of bikes and cars hauling past their house, their option is to ensure that the traffic laws are enforced.

i agree, but would a scantily dressed blonde accomplish the same thing?

Maybe and it's legal for a girl to sit on the lawn in a bikini. I like the idea.
I'm agin' the idea of putting debris in the road, as any thinking person would be, but blondes in bikinis are a good thing!
I'm just sayin' that the idea of people who live in the area feeling like they should "do something" is kinda wrong headed. Encourage LEO to enforce the laws and go back inside your trailer house. IMHO

enforce the law. the with putting debris in the street. might as well write that up as attempted murder. Your sure gonna cause some one to crash. Especially if your doing it hoping a biker runs over the debris.

Speed bumps and lower the speed limit sounds like the only legitimate way to do it.

Anything else sounds malicious to me.

do nothing approach... some will wreck, others die.

maybe the fear of will finally enter the minds of the survivors...



crosses on the sides of country roads decorate the already beautiful scenery.

My point is guns have been pulled on me a few times, but hadnt been used directly at me.

Society can choke out a problem, but the people that need more self control are going to be the first to use, flaunt, make a mistake with it.

Society can compress its thoughts as much as it likes, but in the end its the choice of the individual. I stress safe riding, gear, riding for how you feel for the day on every ride I put together. If the prior post felt a little offensive, I say good. Maybe it will cross your mind next time you step over the bike.

Till then, I love what this community has done to the Houston and surrounding areas and the restraint the people that ride w me observe for their and our own safety. We will never be innocent in the eyes of the law(last Sunday on our costume ride they tried pulling us over for 'riding wreckless' at 10mph around the mall.... wtf? The sheriff told the mall security to STFU and let them go.)







I vote for disco on the insides of the corners... so it feels like a nightclub riding at night.
