Another runner

I was on the west loop around 815, heading north at about Belliare when a bike blew by. It took a second for my brain to register what it was. He/she was going at least 150-60. 5 or 6 seconds later, a police car with lights ablaze. The bike was moving so fast I couldn't even make out what kind it was. Maybe it was dark blue.............R1 or GSXR?

By the time I got to Bissonnet, there were 2 sets of police lights. One carried on past the Galleria, the other took the 59S ramp. I don't think they had a clue which way the bike went.

After seeing that, it me up a bit. I am an avid track day rider and like to ride quickly out in the country, but this was just stupid. This clown was not only endangering his own life but also everyone else on the road. One bad decision and it would be game over. I will be watching the 10 o'clock news..........

Unfortunately, you can't screen who you hand out MH decals to.
Just cause they have one, doesn't mean they're *repping* MH.

Time to adjust the adhesive on the MH stickers to only hold to about 95mph.
