"It is not a 'speed' thing - it's a 'situational' thing. There are indeed situations where 186 mph is acceptible. About 46% of all motorcycle accidents are from the rider driving off the rode - typically from riding beyond one's limits or the particular situation."

See my commentary above... '186' acceptable... the track, that's pretty much it.

That's my point - speed doesn't kill - bad judgement does..

It comes down to many many things. Most important is ride within your limitations. This encompasses many things, your skill level, the road surface, weather, traffic, street/track, the list is endless...

Other than alcohol the common denominator seems to be total disregard for the limits of the situation. I am not pointing fingers, just gaining some perspective. We are all guilty of riding beyond our limitations...I know I have.

I'm not talking about some of you who grew up riding mini bikes then moved up to dirt bikes but to those who just bought one and dont even know where the lock is to release the back seat or what the ram air is for, or wonder why your GSXR or R1 or CBR only has one head lamp come on when youstart it up! Take the MSF class it just may save your life and others you ride with! I think some may agree with me I will only ride with older riders that have been riding a while and have owned a bike or 2 other than the one they now own. Don't get me wrong guys and gals there are some 19,20 yr olds that can ride and ride well! I'm not talking about them, I talking about the one's like I said earlier who don't know their kill switch from their hi beam switch. There's a young man on here who just joined and he's 18 I helped him get his 1st bike A Katana 600 he come's by my house to see my son and when I walked out to say hi we was very proud to tell mew he just finished his MSF course! Made me feel real good aout helping him get his bike. I'm just saying and I maybe only speaking for myself but I want to see more riders, more MH members but NOT more Death's or more MH members losing their life! I don't care if your 18 just be smart enough to get some good instructions like a MSF course or anything equal. Be SAFE I want us to have alot to talk about this Summer other than deaths.

should of seen me, after msf i didnt get onto the streets for like 3 months. i stayed in my neighborhood.
