It's unfortunate that this area doesn't have any real curvy roads. I honestly think that's the real problem. The experienced riders make it look easy and for the new riders that don't understand the complexities that speed brings, things can get out of hand quickly. In areas with real curvy roads people talk , the experienced riders take off, and the first 90/180 degree turn humbles the overconfident. It almost never fails. They slow way down, wobble through the corner, rinse and repeat until they gradually get more comfortable with things. Y'all do a good job of promoting motorcycling in a responsible way with safety gear, training, etc., but in the end people are still going to ride how they want to. Y'all are pretty gotdamn well organized. What can you really do besides having a members only club?

The nature of this sport is unpredictable. danger will ALWAYS be present no matter how careful you are and where you riding (street or track). sometimes we take risks get a little selfish and get carried away with ourselves. After my crash on the street, It opened up a whole different perspective of my riding when that doctor said that I should of been dead before i got to the hospital. I still ride streets but of course not crazy often as I used to be. personally, when trackdays out weighted my street riding, i began to realize how important seat time is. that doesnt mean its going to prevent me from any kind of danger but at least im more knowledgeable of any given situations that might happen thus I agree with 392....take that to the track!

I have to disagree.
Stupids are everywhere.
Nothing but the curvy road CA canyons have their fair share as well.
Where ever they are, there are always ones think they can go over their ability (or simply don't know at all), think they are invincible or just simply carried away.
I happened to be the one who could carried away.
So I keep myself in check, keep the leash very tight especially on the street.

Always ride ure limits never try and be someone you dont want to or have to be....I always remember coach dave ans of course mr crash they are the reasons I still ride on the street they always enjoyed the weekend and always in a great mood always wanting to show noobs never ride out of ure comfort and just enjoy the day riding with new and old friends. There is no comparison to the track of how much safer it is than in the street but thats if u really want to know ure bike and push ure limits....I enjoy both...that is all

Problem is you've got these public spirited rides with parking lots full of nice bikes that are ridden hard because the older guys and more experienced riders have more money and skills and the young guys so badly want to be a part of it. It's like inviting an 17 year old kid over to drink scotch. He thinks he's cool for an hour but will just wind up puking on your carpet.

The truth always hurts... Yes, we all come together to help a fallen rider.. Some stick around a little longer.. Some stop long enough to lol back to see a thumbs up.. Some don't have money to contribute, so they pray from the heart..
Ultimately, we hope you have good insurance to cover the long term care needed for you..
We all have to move on at some point.. If I spent time and money everyday on all the riders that crashed or died, I wouldn't have time to take a .
As heartless as that sounds..

I think it's a good reminder for all riders at all levels to understand to ride their ride at their pace.. Don't try to keep up with someone.. No need to try to fit in ..or put your life at risk to move up a level/ spot.

I couldnt agree more with the OP....

Many times you see tis happen. That why i only rode with a couple people. Way too many goons trying to ride WAY beyond their limits. That ego is a sometimes when a person cant control themself.

Well im a 20 something guy. And I think your post definitally hit home. Ive seen plenty of guys fall hard and totally throw in the towl and ive been to funerals as well. But the truth is like you said life goes on and its just your family members that will have to deal with it. Its not something I want to really think about you know? Ive definitally cooled it on the streets as you can ask eric or others i havnt been on many street rides this year and im just trying to be more like you track guys now. The fun of a street ride is awesome, but you dont really think of the consequences when you get on. Do you? Does anyone really?
