that is a blanket statement you have there. Yes there are people that ride within thier limits. yes there are people that always wear their gear. not every one who buy a sport bike is out to speed. you want to know my reason for buying a sport bike after 5 different cruisers...my back. I have scoliosis. I kills me to ride a cruiser. Do I wear full leathers every time I ride...i sure do. Ask any one that knows me and they'll agree. Do I speed on occasion...yes I do. Do I go crazy with it...no I don't. Most people hate riding with me because I am slow. Always at the back of the pack. I've been to the 1/4 track...I've been to a track day...and I plan to do more. I think more often than not we are preaching to not ride outside of our limits. If memory serves me correctly...you have to have a near miss or crash in order to find my limits. I have no idea what my limits are...I don't really care to either.I have 3 kids, 2 dogs a wife and a mortgage...I don't need to prove to any snot nose kids about my riding ability. yes i have done 150 on my bike. I was way out in the middle of now where with 0 curves and zero cars with full gear. And by full gear...I mean boots leathers gloves helmet, not jeans as so many people like to consider gear. Only 2 times in 13 years of riding. Some people can help the younger kids make it to their older years by preaching the safe riding speech. It is called peer pressure.

i was wondering that same thing

Well since we're going to derogatory remarks in the opening thread... can we use the term 'Rectal Retards' for those that like to treat public roads like a private raceway/amusement park?
Read that again...and consider the implications in it, and what your overlook in your question/comment "Is there anyone here than can say that they've never exceeded the speed limit? You always, ALWAYS wear your gear EVERYWHERE??".

There's a lot of room in 'exceed the speed limit'.. 2mph over to 3x+ the speed limit. Now go look at the accident related threads and see where estimated speeds where at, or within a 5-10mph of the posted limit.

'Shocked & ' hardly, I expect it out of the youngers, plain and simple...just as I expected a post/thread like this one to come up.
Don't be so sensitive.

I suppose that everyone that has had an accident was at fault and not because some cager? It's always been because of speed? Hmmmm, that's not what this thread was about, but that's alright because plain and simple you're probably one of the youngsters just as I had expected too.

I agree! Even i get when im driving my truck and some flys by me doing 100+ on a bike and zig zagging through traffic. It just really pulls my chain when i see that chit!

One thing to point out.... and it may just be me but pinning the throttle on the 610 loop or Allen Parkway is alot different then pinning it on a back road. Both have risks involved but one is definetly a better choice. Maybe not the wisest choice but.. I see them a little different. I personally can not bring myself to even own a sport bike in street dress anymore.

Yes, i have rode with witch and he is slow as !!! HAHA JK witch!

I only said jeans because i see morons all the time riding in shorts a flip flops. That to me is just idiotic! Jeans dont provide the best protection but they do provide more than shorts. Like i said in another post, the only gear i lack is a good pair of boots which i will be buying this next week when i get off this job and back home and i will also be investing in some nice riding pants after that.

I know you're a serious and mature rider from threads over the years (MH-HI-HSBN) but wouldn't that be kinda like loaning out my girlfriend or something?

haha..I know. I ride because I love nature. I did not buy my bike for speed. That is why I own the rc51 dinosaur. If I wanted to go real fast I would have bought a zx10.

I dont like to tear everywhere either. The ride alone is fun for me so i see where your coming from. Every once in awhile though, it is fun to open it up a bit though if conditions permit it.

I ALWAYS wear my gear (yes, that includes the pants) and I'm not a big speeder (5-10 over perhaps). I haven't even taken my bike into triple-digits...though someone else has... Perhaps I need to ride around with WitchDoctor?

Lotta assumptions there...

Let me ask you, precisely how much attention have you paid...or examination did you give any of those 'accidents'? We can 'suppose' (using your logic displayed in the exchange) that 'everyone that has had an accident' could not have done anything to avoid the accident...and 'SPEED' was NEVER a factor. Bothered to check/view the breakdown in rider 'age' in regards to accidents either?
This 'thread' is about trying to act an , about the accident posts and trying to accuse people of being hypocrites.


"Don't be sensitive.." Hmm..
"It's amazing how bed wetters and hypersensitive types (no offense to the good bed wetters and hypersensitive respectable folks that we might have here on the board) can throw their less than two... "
"Do all the sheeple"

Whats your malfunction that leads you to be an , and get 'sensitive' when it's returned? :icon_bigg

p.s. Want to 'check' my age, it's posted a couple times in these forums?
Want to compare driving records while we're at it too?

speeding 5-20 mph over is one thing - riding 100-150+ on public highways is not speeding - it's ludicrous and just plain stupid and totally irresponsible.

If some of you young riders want to live to be old riders I suggest you better change your riding habits - and soon.

sheeple is the proper word for the situation. some of the people who post on here simply morph into the voices and ideas they read on a daily basis. i expect most of them to post similar responses, and they do, because they all want to be the same as those they are attempting to become. When people(such as yourself) stand up for what they believe in regardless of what everyone else thinks, i appreciate it. When was the last time you attended a MH function? all of the bikes are the same, all of the accessories are the same, all of the attitudes are the same. Stand up for yourself and set yourself apart from the crowd or get lost in it. . .

You take much poetic licensing in your prose and you've stolen a few lines from my threads, but I'll overlook that and leave it to your inexperience in these matters.

I won't get into a verbal match with you over this. But I will say this, being an old fart doesn't insure that you're going to be a better rider than a younger one. Always observing the speed limit is no guarantee that you're going to make it home at the end of the day.

It's called using your noodle. Don't ride like a jerk in traffic and never ride in the 'hood like you're on the freeway. I have a clean driving record and I haven't had a conviction in more than 10 years. I've gone faster than anyone else here on the board not just because I can but because I do it skillfully and more than anything else I do it carefully.

I want to go home at the end of the ride, watching my daughters grow up is the most important thing in my life. But I don't like the self-righteous people that act like they've always obeyed EVERY traffic law and are the self appointed overseers of the rest of us.

Cool?

Only 2 times in 13 years of riding. Some people can help the younger kids make it to their older years by preaching the safe riding speech. It is called peer pressure.

I like how the dogs made it in there. Dunno why, just got a kick outta that.

Also, not to jack the thread, but why do they have to be snot nosed kids? My only point is that I hope you don't just assume that because a young guy is on a sport bike he is inexperienced or completely reckless. I'm 22, and I'd like to think I ride with good discretion. I'm positive I could stand to learn from some of you older guys, but I don't think I'm a danger to myself or anyone else on the road. There are a lot of complete idiots on motorcycles out there, and a good majority are young people, but there are still a good bit of us younger ones out there with a tangible amount of respect for our machinery and our older riders.
