And that's what a girl can bring to the stunt scene: serious minded similies between ballet and wheelies.:laughing6

Ever since I went down last year I get that feeling of my skin sliding on the pavement. I hate it, sometimes it makes me slow down.

yeah Rick, nothing like doing that "human crayon" routine on the pavement to make one pause to reflect.

Done that while bicycle road racing.

It is not just Houston, if you look at Dallas, they have their frequent accidents as well.

I am with Magnaman on this one. It is mainly a type of attitude. I have only been riding a year and still consider myself a noob. I also thought at first, that a bike is there to go fast on and to commute on and now I realize how much more there is to it. Books to read, trackdays to take, weekends in school parking lots to practise slow drills, ... it takes a heck of a lot to control the throttle, the mind and the bike.

About people learning, I think it is up to them. As long as there are folks who want to ride fast, they will. I think it takes a personal experience to change that behavior or a constant drilling of society (in this case MH) that riding like a maniac is not cool, riding without gear is not cool and riding without skills is not cool. Maybe after the 100th post, it sinks in, so I'd say, for the patient, keep after it. It may just save a life one day.

People will continue doing it until it hits really close to home or it happen to them.

I will keep asking it.. It might save one person's life...That would be all the difference and make it worth the air I feel I am wasting on deaf ears...
But there is always hope that someone is not just reading it but that it also makes that person think twice about getting so far out there

I don't care if 99.9% don't listen as long as one might. Worth it.
