Sportbike Owners Poll

In what manner do you ride your sportbike?

I'm just looking for the most general answers possible. Choose the category that most describes the way that you use your bike.

It posts the thread, then you have to enter all your optios. It took a minute to type them all, then I found out that you can only have 100 characters in each poll option, so even after I initially finished I still had to go back and fix it!

If you ONLY ride lots then your choice is up there. If you ride on the street at all then choose a category.

No, we couldn't possibly have had any more choices. 10 is the max. I was trying to be thorough.


edit -- don't know if you can tell, but the poll is meat to be progressive - each new option indicates more law breaking. Some of the description is lost because I had to trim them down to fit the spaces alotted.

my choice was ----->>> same as above, but pay no mind to the speed limit on empty back roads.

i usually obey the speed limit but very seldom when i get the urge to speed and there is nothing around... i say to myself, "what speed limit"

I'm kind of glad to see that I landed in the middle with option 6. I always try to stay ahead of traffic on all roads.
