Entirely plausible and probable if it was anyone else. He can't keep quiet about his opinion, even when it is best to do so.

You should know that I had my Titanium plated and will not be affected by such tomfoolery as a kick to the groin. That said, see you next month at MSRH.

You would then be guilty of the same criminal/ immoral activity which you are attempting to decry, vigilante justice with the intent to cause physical harm. IJS

And here's the zinger: there's no way to know WHEN this will occur by "the road" I guess you mean any road. People trip about triple digits but have no problem with 80 in a 75. In order to be reckless one must be wanton or heedless in conduct without regard to consequences. The road in question "RR", isn't pushing anyone to the limits at posted speeds and you can still tbone some farmer pulling out his driveway because he thought your little headlight meant you were further away than you were or you could be stopped on the side of the road only to be clipped by a passing cage and so there is a constant threat of endangerment. Operating at a speed well within the design parameters of the machine, capability of the operator AND prevailing road conditions is prudent. There are stretches of that road where 100plus is not imprudent and stretches where even at the posted you better have enough margin to stand it up, slow and steer to avoid.
  • 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 I wasn't there for the incident so I can't speak to what occurred. I will say that our speed limits were created when the safe operating speeds of vehicles in general, braking, fuel economy and tire technology were lower. The recommended limits in turns are not dictated by vehicle technology, but rather for maintaining calculated G forces experienced when negotiating them. I think the average rider puts a great deal more thought into operating a bike through a corner than any cager ever will, so I am far from reckless when based on conditions I decided to take a 40mph turn at 85-90 and a blind 50mph sweeper known for having dirt from a well used drive way at 40mph.
  • 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
I don't know who you're calling overweight but I would invite you to:
A: Not give in to your compulsion to try and argue with people who are better looking and clearly smarter than you are(you may enter discussions with those who are one or the other but not both
B: It's a road with a couple of 40 and 50 mph sweepers, I'm one of if not the slowest most cautious riders on this board and even I can run it and hit the ton in most spots without endangering others OR myself. You got to go a lot faster than 100 to screw it up out there, granted there are places everyone should be more vigilant than others but even at those speeds most modern bikes on modern tires have enough margin to deal with unexpected road hazards.
C: If you really don't care about someone else’s opinions then there is no need to retort them, although I can understand you wanting to respond to mine because of your rightly deserved but somewhat unnecessary respect and admiration for me.

Yes, it's just MH. This sort of bickering doesn't happen anywhere else.

Because I know what you look like? Because you know what I look like? I'm not sure how anything in this thread proves that you're clearly anything...excepting pro-delinquency in the form of dipshit riding.

And what is it you think people are doing out there? They don't call it racers road because people are taking their cruisers out there for leisurely sunday morning rides.

Also, your assumption that "even at those speeds most modern bikes on modern tires have enough margin to deal with unexpected road hazards" fails flat...again...based on who's on top of it. People crash there, and in the forest, on a regular basis. Some of them purportedly experienced riders. So I will default again to: it doesn't matter what the bike can do, it matters what the rider can do.

I have no idea who you are, therefore, I'm hoping this is humor and not a display of a jaw-dropping level of narcissism. However, based on your previous comment that you're both better looking and smarter than I (as a default assumption since you have no idea who I am), the preponderance of evidence available to me at this time, sadly, makes me think the latter.

Good luck with prosecution. How do you plan on establishing intent? (my point)
