Correct me if I am wrong, but I think the sheeple the original poster was referring to was all those that jump on the bandwagon when someone posts about doing speed.

Kinda like those that have never sped, cast the first ball bearing.. :icon_bigg

maybe I'm nuts but I think there's a huge differance between stretching the speed limit by 5-10mph & doing speeds & the law agrees,cops routinely disregard those running a little over, some on here have gotten nailed doing & I bet it sucked huge at the time

Ok ok, this thread has broke my wall of secrecy! I am finally going to admit that i often love doing 100mph+ around the neighborhood streets naked with gloves on of course! Gotta protect those hands you know! I like to lane split on the freeway (especially in traffic jams/saves time) and ride stoppies at every red light! Before i take off again, i boil the tire down and sling rubber all over the car behind me all in while flicking random pedestrians off!























JK! Someone had to break up all these serious business! Ride how you want to but stay in your limits and use your head (not as a frame slider of course!) is all there is to it. There is a time and a place for everything.

Do all the sheeple that are shocked ride mopeds with neutered motors? I know not everyone rides a 250 kwak with a clothespin and cardboard on the forks to make it sound like a real bike, c'mon get real. (no offense to you 250 riders)

Is there anyone here than can say that they've never exceeded the speed limit? You always, ALWAYS wear your gear EVERYWHERE???

I'm convinced that most of the people here are worried or at least concerned that someone from the outside could lurk and find that we are *gasp* actually enjoying riding and that sometimes we even exceed the speed limit. I dunno but I think that most of the people at the municipal courts charged with speeding are by far cagers and not bikers.

What is it? Do you really think that everyone that buys a sportbike does it for gas mileage? Even worse, do you really think that anyone else out there is really under the illusion that we (as a group) observe the speed limit anymore than the cagers?

Sure we want to present a law biding face to the public, but why are you guys hiding under your mirrored lids?

-d :confused2

:laughing6 :laughing6 :laughing6 phag..

When you gonna post GPS speed on your bike?

I speed all over the place.. that's probably why my bike is blown up...

Isle of Man over seas?..... pssh... Isle of Man Houston/Sugar Land edition....

I would love the fact of speeding coming for a straight 90 degree angle turn braking oh so hard, downshifting, back skipping out sometimes, rear wheel rising some, dump it and turn and gas it back hard in first with the front wheel facing up as you go for a slight left handed turn, set the front wheel back down and lean into the turn and gas again only to come to a screeching stop for the stop sign.

And thats just exiting the Fountains on 59 and taking a right on Corporate. lol

I used to say I'll die one day on my bike.... I'm still waiting.

I may be young, but the main way i learned how to ride so well was learning how to keep up with fools like you. When i was on the r1 in a nice open stretch, no cars, no nothing... It wont hurt anybody other than myself if i maybe do speeds for a few secs just for a good lil blast to get the adrenaline going once in a while.

If im riding myself, I will sometimes ride my limits, not the speed limits. My limit could be 5 over, or it could be 50 over. It all depends on the conditions and if i feel like it. There are also times when i just feel like riding chill and cruising the speedlimits and watching all the idiot cagers fly by.

And as for gear, I believe in a helmet and jacket etc., but once in a blue moon when i ride normally, i wont wear a jacket, but always a helmet. If im out riding how i feel like, I'll be fully suited.

We bought bikes to take a risk and have fun on.. Its up to you to decide how big of a risk you want to take or what you consider fun. If you conder doing 5mph over a big risk, and actually doing 25 through that 25mph rated turn, then go right on ahead. But I'll continue to ride within my limits, which may not be legal, but thats the risk i take to have fun.

NOT HIDING - my bike is a litre bike and tops out @ 117.

No, you didn't read that wrong. Litre bike. Just not a sport bike.
I've gotten it up there only a few times and that was just to see what it could do. I typically don't exceed limit +10-15%.

Oh, and I wear all my gear with the exception of moving around a parking lot, test ride less than a mile, etc.

Why, pray tell, are you assuming speed limits have to be broken (and I mean EXTREMELY broken) to have fun?

For what purpose? To say "I went fast" ?

I've got better things to do with my time and better ways to use the rubber on the tires that I pay for.

Well not just to say you went fast but to have fun doing it! Maybe you dont exactly fall into the same category as the most of us with sport bikes. I believe in riding responsible and safe but every now and then, you gotta be able to just let loose on it and get a good rush out of it. I know thats why most people on here own the sport bikes is for the power they have and the fun they have on them. Everyone feels differently but judging off the fact that you bought a cruising style sport bike, id guess you are more into the cruising style of riding but most of us that buy the bikes like we have like to use them for what they are designed every now and then and ride aggressive to get the rush and have some fun.

Nope, but everything has a time and place.

I've said it a million times - everyone has an opinion. A difference in opinions does not mean that someone has to be right and someone has to be wrong. What if my only purpose for being on this board was to step in every now and then and show people how much fun can be had legally? That not everyone has to ride fast? I'm not telling YOU not to, but I do ask that you do it responsibly so that you aren't harming me, my friends, my family, innocent bystanders, animals, public property (aka my tax dollars), and the image of "bikers" as a whole.

Now.. I like to go fast sometimes, but I've also seen grown men and women having the time of their lives riding within speed limits and with great care and caution to their surroundings so as to reduce (because we can never eliminate) the risk of injury or death. If you've got some spare time on your hands, I've got dozens of links to ride and trip reports that'll have you wishing you were there.
