people always say take it to the track... at the track there are other lives in danger as well, there is a time and a place to do stupid things on public roads that would only injure or kill yourself, if you so choose to do it then you contributed to your own demise and nobody else's. if it endangers anyone else then i would agree don't do it

yeah so that when you have a blow out at 200 mph. and are in about 50 pieces all over the road.. that me and my wife and kids or grandkids have to be coming around the corner and see all this mess... no way man.. keep it on the track where they dont go..

How do you account for critters coming across the road, you don't but it'll only kill you and the unfortunate critterroadway conditions, debris, know the road before you do it and scan it before the runhow can you be sure that there is no traffic coming across or on to the road etc, etc, etc. no side streets, as said before

But you guys keep on doing it, it's job security for a lot of public servants

Too bad the end results are so saddening for your friends and family :eh:

I'm no saint, I've had plenty of stupid rides and outings, I stand by my mistakes, and I have gotten lucky so many times. Not everyone gets lucky, some, like out recently departed friends, have families that would give their own lives so that they could stop that person from making that last mistake...

Grow up guys.

People at the track are aware of the consequences.... People driving home from eating out with there family or coming home fromt he movies or whatever ... do not ... They do not need to see or watch someone kill themselves because of a bad choice if it can be helped...

I agree as well, but the point was made that it would kill or hurt innocent people... i'm just saying there is a way to do it where the only person hurt was the one dumb enough to do it

Sorry guys, everyone entitled to make mistakes. If you want to prevent things to happen then let the people speak their mind and reported to the laws if you suspect any illegal activities. Everyone concerned is greatly appreciated and heard but taking these good advice is up to the wrong doer. If the mods closed the thread good advice/ideas will be lost.

not really... exposing others to such tragic sites as accidents can plague them for life with mental disorders.. hard to deal with such sites

Like the old saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. You guys seem to know it all.

Keep on doing those things, because another old saying will eventually come true: "It's your funeral". Problem is, your actions may cause someone else's funeral too...
not true, if you take all those precautions then the rider is the only one killed in the accident

What do you think that is going to do to a kid seeing a body laying across the ground ripped up or head ripped off because someone wanted to go that fast on the streets to see if they could do it??? They would be scorned for the rest of there life...

true, but on a road barren enough that would allow you to do a high speed run on... what are the odds that a small kid would come upon the scene as the accident occured?

The road was put it and mantained well enough for you to be able to run on so there must be some reason they are keeping it maintained... Maybe because there is a house at some point on that road with possibly kids. SO you have a 50 50 chance that someone might be mentally scared by your actions!

i am not saying to go do this, it is just for all the people that say you should NEVER do it on the public roads... i'm trying to show there may be one or 2 times that it could be done safely and what that would entail
