I can say that I know what ur saying Jet.
I did the meets and hauling it throttle pinned on the ninja but I trackdays and then dirt riding. Not so much meets anymore.

NOW

Got the big ol CB1000 and its a natural born hooligan !!

It's one of the older arts, before people got money and brains to hit the track or just slow down

Not worth the risk. Drunk drivers, and derbies on the road that you don't have time to react to. I'm not putting anyone down, but I wouldn't do it.

I kinda miss the Wednesday night rides. Wanted to hit one up this past one, but didn't make it.

You're right there was a major rush. Who doesn't like a rush?

The only thing I didn't like was everyone said you would cruise on the straights, and pick it up on the turns. Bull ! It was out the whole time. I hated it. 120+ all the time was not fun to me.

Maybe some similarities between the two if I were skydiving with a large group, in heavily populated airspace, with a wide mix of skill and experience levels, at night, mixing belly flyers and freeflyers, opening low without properly tracking apart from the formation into a sky full of airplanes and parachutes then having to land in a neighborhood full of powerlines and rabid pitbulls. THEN I'd agree

And before someone chimes in about it, I had my D license before most of you had fuzz on your peaches. D19941, USPA 114461

Again, its NOT FOR EVERYONE, no matter the differences in RISK, if you dont like it, you are entitled to YOUR opinion. Its clear, and everyone knows CCH does not like Routes or RG.

You've obviously never done a static line jump at 2 in the morning 400 feet above ground level, 120 people per plane, 6 planes.

Well, If you've scrubbed red clay out of your boots and got a haircut or two at Ranger Joe's on good old VD then I thank you for your service. Still, there's a difference between parachuting and skydiving, and it was skydiving that was mentioned in Cornerjukie's post.

Agreed and understood. I dont' dislike you at all. , I don't know you. you're probably a cool enough guy, as are most of the people that I've met from the board. I've spent a number of years around this stuff - most of it in North Georgia where we rode the Appalachians very frequently. I love Texas, but there's nothing around here that's even close to Blood Mountain, the Cherohala Skyway, Richard B Russel ETC.. I understand the concept of pushing it on public roads, but I also understand the pain of losing a friend.

If all of the infantile bluster and peacockesque displays of plumage are just for fun, then so be it. It's a fun read. Be careful in real life and have fun. If not, then it all comes off sounding like an adolescent cry for attention by people trying to convince themselves of their bravery and skill, but have yet to watch a friend bleed out and die post-crash from a femoral artery severed by an external compound fracture (J Johnson) -Or paralyzed by a vehicle that appeared out of nowhere (P Anziano) -Or run over by multiple vehicles after crashing (J Swinks) - Or having nowhere to go on a rural road when a deer runs out in front of you (K Schoenke) or lie in a ditch with T10 and T11 broken and wondering if he's paralyzed or not (me) or or or...

I don't hate any of you, and knows I've dragged enough knees and broken enough traffic laws in the mountains for one lifetime. I just have an issue when it seems that some don't seem to get how serious this all is, and I hope it doesn't have to take one of your best friends dying in front of you for it to sink in. I wish you all safe rides, and years of doing so.

- I also agree with Ivan that whomever the AE of the AE is this time is most likely not the same person that used to post as the Routemaster. There's a noticeable difference in verbiage, sentence structure, grammar and language. Perhaps he's like the Dread Pirate Roberts...
