So it basically got those coming and going. I might b a dumb redneck at times but dam I ain't that dumb. I see as this if they do this I want it for everybody not just us the motorcyclist Everyone. They say it will make highways safer. Proof it by just pulling us out the bunch don't proof safer highways. Basically its telling me its the motorcyclist vault if a person talking and or texting on there cell phone and runs a motorcycle of the road its the motorcycles vault. I say no but I guess Ull see it different.
I'm going to give you some advice, possibly some of the best you will ever receive on this forum.

Take the time to formulate your thoughts then write them down. Read them and see if they make sense to you. If they do not, rewrite them. Do this as many times as it takes.

Although your points may be valid they seem incomprehensible at times. A concise post would allow the message to reach their targets and gain the action you so desire from your fellow riders.

I don't think any human being is "dumb". I do believe that we are all capable.

This wouldn't be the first time Georgia did this. Nearly every spring, when the young calamari swam inland and purchased their new liter bikes (and then systematically proceeded to thin their schools by flying off of mountainsides and whacking into treelines), the GHP and local LEOs would increase their presence in the mountains. MOCs were not uncommon. They would have a police car or bike with the lights on and an officer standing near to instruct everyone to decrease speed. The next officers near the roadway would point at the passing bikes and wave them over to the side of the road for a check.

Sometimes they were cool and just told you to move on and be careful (I always rode with insurance and an MC endorsement), and other times they just looked for things to harass you on - always making the comment about how we needed to go somewhere else and stop riding like idiots on public streets. Some truth to that...

I never got a ticket, and most of the cops were cool - even though I was frequently on my R6 track bike that had no mirrors, turn signals or real headlights (I had a $20 foglight mounted under the Sharkskinz nose, the factory brake light and kept a license/insurance on it for when I wanted to ride it on the street).


They often used the same setup for pulling bikes over after clocking you with a hidden radar or laser. Most of the time, you'd never see the guy clocking. He'd be off in the woods with no visible police cars until you'd round the next bend and get waved to the shoulder. When riding the Southern Appalachians, beware of Smokey Bear in a ghillie suit hiding in a tree...

The only problem I have against checkpoints is that even if the legislature's intent is legitimate: i.e. curbing unlicensed riding, inevitably the checkpoint will be used as a pretext and a shortcut by the local police.

Even if the Feds are able to fund motorcycle checkpoints, Texas will not be affected.

Getting pulled over for a quick insurance/license check every once in a while is a fair trade. They're not invading our rights: you're still required to be insured and license. They're just going to step up enforcement. Fine by me. We are not given the freedom to be on the road illegally.
Where's YOUR line at? Randomly searching vehicles without probably cause? Coming into your house without a search warrant? Cavity searches? With your line of thinking, these things would be perfectly acceptable. After all, a person is still required to obey all laws. Therefore, if they have nothing to hide, let them do whatever the they want.

Immunity from checkpoints is not covered under the US Constitution. If you don't like rules, stay off the roads and the track. They have rules there too

Very good book. I would recommend it's reading to everyone. Even though it is a book of fiction, it has a lot of relevance in today's world.

This.

Like Bevo said, if you don't like rules and don't care to follow them, stay off the road and track. If you have everything covered, your tags, license, and insurance are in order, then you have nothing to fear from the big bad Man. If you're missing some or all of the items required by law to ride a motorcycle, then that's on you. Don't whine and complain when Mr. John Law hands you a ticket for riding without following the law's requirements. YOU made that decision to break the law, and YOU have earned that ticket. Plain and simple.

Really don't like it? Contact your local (or federal) state representative and tell them to change the law because you're butthurt about it.

I don't see the problem with roadblocks. If it means that more people are ticketed for operating vehicles outside the law, e.g. driving without insurance, then I'm all for it. It's a great revenue source (esp. in this economy) for the city & state, and maybe people will actually stop thinking they're better than the law and actually follow it. I used insurance as an example; remember, Texas has one of the highest uninsured motorist rates in the country. Thank those douchebags next time you pay your ridiculously high insurance premium.

Contrary to popular belief, driving is a privilage, not a right. Like all things, operating a motor vehicle comes with responsibility. It's a fact of life. Get over it or shut up, sit down, and get of the way.

Jus' sayin'.

Well black sheepdog I'm not saying u wrong or right. But u think there going to make more of motorcyclist than they are on cages. I don't see that happening. Why just pull one over and not the other. Last I checked there still more cages out there than motorcycles.
Why should there b more prejudice against one than the other. The bill that as already seen the senate that pass just say motorcycles not cars trucks are big rigs just us on two wheels. Why shouldn't b for everyone then not just one type?
