There are also specific laws about speeding and reckless driving. How about the dipshits running well over 100 putting innocent people at risk? Should they be prosecuted? Why don't you send the names in to the local DA? Or do those actions by the few dipshit riders meet your standard for justification?

I've ridden the road (at a brisk pace), but it was on the way to breakfast, and we came back another way. That action and those of riders treating the road in a similar fashion, aren't the problem.

The dipshits that run the road repeatedly at very high speeds are risking the lives of the everyday users of that road. Many don't stay on their side of the yellow, leave their buddies behind in a ditch because they lack common sense of how to watch out for each other, or crash and blame a "rock in the road" because they lack the skill level to understand what happened and the experience to avoid it. These douche bags give us all a bad name.

I still don't see that the locals set a trap, looks like a random brick in the road. IF a local did it, it was stupid. In reality though, it's no worse than those that risk the life of others due to their idiot treatment of these few lame turns as a "race track." The theoretical trap setter only set up a situation that could result in injury, but isn't guaranteed to risk injury as in your home invasion scenario. No difference between the theoretical trap setter that the idiot rider that is riding well above their capabilities at high speeds. The rider sets up a situation that could result in injury to others as well.


TLDR: No proof a trap was set. Idiot RR riders are just as guilty of risking the lives of others.

It could be said that the only way those bricks were an injury risk is if someone was so drastically exceeding the posted limit that they didn't have time to react to them. Thus proving that they were acting like a shitstick if they were problematic.

But lets be honest: the fact that the OP called it "Racers road" to begin with tells you EXACTLY how he was treating that stretch of pavement...

I don't personally feel that opperating a machine designed to safely opperate at 186mph+, at over 100mph on a nearly empty road, is wreckless or endagering the public.

The local constable and I are always in disagreement about this and for the sake of peace I slow it down to the posted speed limits when I'm in his presense just to avoid a TAXing conversation about it.


Crossing the yellow is always a bad idea. Your lane is all the "track you have". Between the wildlife, dirt and my constant fear that the cage that last past this way was leaking oil, I keep a wide margin for error. To me 100 on RR is not really all that quick but the pace that provides me that margin is a lot slower than most and faster than may be one or two. The point being I widen it the more tracffic or road conditions warrant it.

Again I don't think the locals have a problem with us having our fun as long as we respect their peace.
  • Be respectful of other users of the road.
  • Be respectful of people wanting to turn out of their driveway without being hit by a motorcycle they have no really good way to judge the velocity of.
  • Keep the noise down
  • Don't crash and destroy property or use up their county's emergency assets.
  • Don't make a day of it, going back and forth.
Instead of calling each other names and judging one another, its more productive to state the facts and solutions don't you think?

The machine's capability isn't the issue, it's the rider and the environment. Coming around a blind turn at 100 plus when there is a driveway there, IS putting others at risk.

The local constable and I are always in disagreement about this and for the sake of peace I slow it down to the posted speed limits when I'm in his presense just to avoid a TAXing conversation about it. I've had those same arguments, luckily I know how to reach Fresnel

The point being I widen it the more tracffic or road conditions warrant it. Again, RR is not challenging to most experienced riders, so I can agree to a point (see above)

Again I don't think the locals have a problem with us having our fun as long as we respect their peace. Agreed.

Agree to all, but I call people names when they deserve it and to make a point. Even my close friends, just ask them

If I witnessed sombody placing bricks on any road intentionally for any reason it would earn them a swift kick to the sack. I almost said kick to the but someone doing this has no , just an empty sack.

Ek already admitted to doing it (see earlier post he made). Could you time the kick to the sack right before we hit the track on tards? Maybe I could stay ahead him if done at the right time with enough effort.

  • nobody gives a what you "personally feel"
  • the road isn't always "nearly empty" The instant it's not, you're reckless and endangering. And here's the zinger: there's no way to know WHEN this will occur
  • who cares what the bike is capable of, it's what the rider is. And the fact that the rider isn't capable of observing even the slightest hint of self preservation leads one to believe that they're probably not able to operate the machine at anywhere near it's limits
  • a street bike with an overweight texas rider isn't capable of reaching you "safely operating" speed of 186+mph anyway...and especially not cranked over in a blind turn

There is no street vs track argument. It's a "don't be a douchebag rider on RR" discussion that spawned from a very helpful warning about road debris.

Just be sure that you keep an eye out for rocks that might cause crashes on your street ride.
