Work issues cause I ride

So a guy at my company is trying to get rid of motorcycle parking, says its bad for the company. Riding bikes I mean. Happened since there was a guy being filmed doing wheelies in front of our company. Don't know who it is. Doesn't work for us. Then today I ended racing a ninja on the highway on my way 2 work. I ended hitting 153 mph, my boss somehow found out. Now I got drama for it. And a group of harley riders got alittle agitated at me. They're going on a ride 2morow. Said I could go. I said sure, ill keep it in 3rd gear for yall. Lol. They started it by saying to get a real bike, mine needed training wheels.lol . Its all good. Anyhow, one of the main guys is trying to get employees not 2 ride 2 work.... 27 total riders at our company are mad. Me and 2 others are the only ones who ride sport bikes... the rest are cruisers...anywho, anytime a guy is seen wheeling or stunting by some of the companies top dogs...I get questioned about it.... grrrrrr, ima give em something to question about..... just had 2 vent I guess......im riding 2morow, lets see what happens, by the way, I smoked the ninja

Seriously, what's the point of this thread....?

Do you just want everyone to tell you that you're doing the right thing standing up to this guy who wants to stop everyone riding to work?

Or do you just want everyone to tell you that you're a dumbass?

You're the person (along with said Ninja guy) who give people like me and many others here who ride sanely on the street a bad name...

Ride it like you stole it... stronly indicates your intelligence.

Does your company provide health coverage? If so, I would have fired you by now. You actions while in control of your motorcycle are incredibly risky and display horrible judgement. You put yourself and those around you in danger. If your company provides health coverage you also potentially put them at financial risk now that they know about your poor judgement and high risk actions.

Yup, I would fire your STUPID !!

PS, that is how an employer might look at it.

+1... if you're hurt breaking the law, your health coverage can be denied.


Pete, anyone that comes on here and brags about racing ay 153mph deserves to get ripped into... he obviously doesn't care about his safety (or those commuters around him, or his family and friends if he was to get hurt/killed) so why should anyone here take it easy on him?
