it. It's just a brick. No way it's taking up the entire lane, and as flat as it is out there you should see it in plenty of time. If you can't adjust your line and go around it, you shouldn't be going that fast. If it was a 4x4x8, you'd have something to about. If the first brick doesn't automatically have you looking for more, you're not thinking far enough ahead.

I agree with those above.. Take it to the track guys. If it was me living out there I wouldn't want to feel like I live on a racetrack (I have two small kids).

No cops/traffic/speed limits/bricks&nails in the road.. I don't know why anyone would choose not to ride track.. SMH
Uh, what about the people who DONT ride like that, or don't ride at all?

Look, I hate people breaking into my house. I'm sure most people do. Can I setup a trap that shoots them in the face with a shotgun when they enter unanounced? NO! There is a specific law against setting traps meant to kill or cause injury. Thats what this is. If someone knows who did this and can prove it then they need to be prosecuted. There is NO justification for these actions.

"Racer Road" is just a few high speed sweepers that the cool guy high speed street riders like to take to be all borc or some such thing. Nothing too technical about it. I rode it once and never went back. To each their own. People live on that road. They are tired of all the wanna be moto gp riders flying down their road. If you respected that I bet the bricks would stop finding themselves in the street. Rant over. Who wants to run some bitchen routes this Wednesday night after PP1.

Pic of one of the bricks. This one was in the middle of a curve too. I had to swerve to avoid it.

what looks so "fun" about that turn? if you can't make that turn and avoid a brick you got more problems then we can handle.

take the street "rossi" to the track your not cool and your just gonna hurt yourself or someone else in the process. Last i checked we live in Texas not the Isle of Man

78mph down side streets and running into bricks? No wonder the full coverage quote I got was so high...
