decided to stop riding on teh streetz

Yup been thinkin about it for a while now and after a couple really close calls in the last few weeks I'm giving up the streets and going track only. Just too dangerous out there. Plus, street riding is nowhere near as fun as riding on the track. I will be at the benefit ride for Matt but after that...no mas.

Its a give and take... I like going out and just seeing stuff... getting away...

It's part of my therapy but cagers do add to my wrong side of the equation

If track only isn't enough a few of us ride offroad regularly, get a dirtbike & come on out. Some of us have extra bikes too, speak up if you want to give it a shot.

BTW... your av rules!!

I know the feeling. My family tells Me riding on the Streets is deliberatly looking for DEATH. But its not our call when we go. I Support your Choice.

Ive made that choice also, my street bike sits as it is. Ive done more track miles this year then street miles. I just have to sell the street bike to be officially done.

I think that is the best decision you have made. You will enjoy the sport so much by trakcking 100%. Congrats. I made that decision some time ago too.

Guess you have to define "street". I have no desire to ride in town or run around downtown at midnight, but I don't see giving up country cruises anytime soon.
