For all the Busa riders...

More Roethlisberger fallout, but now they're after your ride:

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...erbrook/060808

A snippet:

Like all max-performance bikes, the Hayabusa is basically a big engine with two wheels and a seat. There are no safety mechanisms: no roll bars, no shoulder harness, no impact-absorbing beams, no air bags, not even bumpers. Acceleration of max-performance motorcycles is wildly disproportionate to driving needs. The only real use of the acceleration ability is road rage -- to drag-race from stoplights, cut others off in traffic, speed like mad. Perhaps you've been on a highway when a couple colorful high-performance bikes have roared past you at far over the speed limit. The people on the bikes may be morons, which is their problem. But their antisocial behavior is your problem, since vehicles moving significantly faster than the speed of traffic are a leading cause of accidents.

Cant miss this little gem:

It is past time the high-horsepower motorcycle was regulated off the roads. The intended use of these bikes is lawbreaking!

Scary indeed. And finally, sound off here:
