I certainly hope this wasn't you guys...


To the op, this happens to me often when I'm driving, I cringe at some stuff I have seen, but I don't feel compelled to come here and assume its a forum member.

What made you think it would be someone from here? Just out of curiosity...

If they hit you the worst that would happen is that they didn't carry liability and you were unable to successfully sue their estate. You'd be out some cash for the repairs. They'd be out... well, their life. I'm much more worried about my safety when a tuner Benz or Mustang whooshes past me. I don't want something that big and heavy plowing into the back of my vehicle.
energy = mass*(velocity)^2

(600lb bike+rider)*(130mph)^2=10,140,000 (lb (mph)^2)
(3000lb car)*(60mph)^2=10,800,000 (lb (mph)^2)

very similar energy levels, but the car go 60mph isnt likely to plow into the back of some one.

similar levels of "potetial to fck some stuff up" if ur going slow (lets say you slow down for traffic ahead or you panic stop for some reason).

I think he is more asking to show the percentage of accidents where motorcycles have collided with a car and there was a fatality to the people driving in comparison to the riders...

You know, "idiots" is a term that gets thrown around a lot on this board. I think all of us do dumb sometimes; I try to do it when nobody's lookin'.

I don't get the hate. We're all on two wheels. That's a dangerous thing, but sometimes it works out to be a benefit. Monday I hit Twin Peaks on Kirby for lunch. Got there early, 'cause parking's a . There was a blue Yamaha parked in a great spot, and the rider had been considerate enough to leave room for others. I got a great spot where I could keep my eye on my bike, and I left before the rider did so I didn't get to thank him/her for the classy parking job. It's a small thing, but it's the kind of consideration people on two wheels really appreciate - and it strengthens our bond as riders.

So yeah, there are idiots on the roads. Sometimes that's all of us. But there are some pretty cool peeps, too. Sometimes they're the same people. I guess Rodney put it best:

We good tho senator. I agree op is going about it the wrong way
I wasn't singling anyone out, there's alot of people doing it. Just curious.

These types of threads and battles over speeding are timeless, and they will continue I'm sure. Just remember two points.

1. People are going to do what they want. I know why people do this stuff, I've felt that rush before myself. Some people just constantly live on the edge.

2. Other people have lost someone on a bike, or have seen someone die on a ride. They are forever scarred and will not condone certain types of riding. They have families that are on the street and wish to keep them safe as well.

Once you take a look at both, you can see the two very different sides. We all love bikes and what they're capable of, or we wouldn't be here.

If you rant about people speeding or doing "anything bad", you're prob gonna get flamed.
However, if you defend/participate in these things, expect to get flamed from people that don't believe that's right either.

It works both ways.

This is NOT a racetrack. You are giving the rest of us a bad name. You are putting many innocent people at risk, not to mention your own foolish selves.

I own 2 fast cars, and 2 fast bikes.

I've done that before. Granted, not after being passed in the cage, but after being sniped in my lane on the bike...

Wouldn't this be based on the difference in speed though? If I'm going 75 and he's going 130, there's a 55mph difference.

600*55^2 = 1,815,000

Which is the same as a 3000lb car going 25 mph faster than me (100). But if you're rear-ended by another car at a speed difference of 25mph the impact is dangerous, but probably not lethal. It depends on where the cars go next to determine lethality (off a bridge or something). The impact alone wouldn't pose a serious risk to most drivers. For the biker it's like hitting a stationary object while going 55. That seems really bad.

I'm still looking, since this topic kinda intrigues me now. I'm not finding any google pages where a motorcyclist killed a cager. If anyone knows any off-hand, please chime in. Curious....

Yeah, completely the riders fault for going about his business and someone pulling out...

This is ONE example...please give us more and compare them to the riders that live...this one died a long with them...How often do cager survive these collisions or are unharmed?
