While I don't agree with the street racing, I don't like the idea of companies getting into the personal lives of their employees beyond the preliminary background checks.

As far as the harley guys, any other biker, sport, tourer, or otherwise would/should have told you chit about it too. You have a company that's leery of motorcycles to begin with and want to take away certain parking *privileges*, and you go out and reinforce their negative views. Well done.

Someday, when you get all grow'd up, you might see the bigger picture.

yup it happened to me too, after my accident they told me no more bikes.

i bought the gs and took it to work, they couldnt say

is not right to tell me not to ride, only a judge of the peace can order me that with enough evidence against me

after i clock out is my life, not their business, i behave and do my job while on company time and company premises, thats the policy

now if im wrong, then we all should be fired for going to the bars, and track and other risky hobbies?

this is what is called private life, company own us only on company time

otherwise would be called slavery

Yup, I would fire your STUPID !!

IBTL

PS, that is how an employer might look at it.
just my opinion but you cant fire someone because of the way they drive out of work. if their job requires them to drive and keeping a good driving record is a must then their driving record will get them fired if they are stupid. but just because i see you driving crazy(on your own time) does not give me the right to fire you......so sounds like you just wanna be a hater and a tattle ...now the adult thing to do would be to talk in private and say hey keep the high speed on the track. otherwise there aint you can do but voice your opinion about what happened.

Thing to remember is

who owns the parking lot?

"Employee shall represent the company in a positive manner".
so you tellin me that if a company says you cant park your car here cause its a mustang(just for arguement sake) then you cant park there....thats just dumb.

some a$$hole that can't get laid must be making these rules.

yes I am saying that and yes its dumb. but thats how it works. The Employee chose to work there.

my second post on this thread might help clear it up better.

Can your boss tell you you can't ride a motorcycle to work?? Probably not. But they can tell you that you may not park it on their property. However, most will not. There is a much simpler and easier way for them to deal with the issue that results in less hassle and potential for lawsuits (they don't like lawsuits even if they're confident they will win). The easy solution is employment action (i.e., Firing your azz).

Your employer can fire you for no reason at all. The law says that they just can’t fire you for the wrong reason (e.g., age, race, sexual preference, etc.) A savvy employer will fire you and avoid arguments and lawsuit issues by giving you no reason at all.

Perhaps some translation from a long time management type will help

Boss says “Jay, I’m concerned about…” =>What he/she means=> “Jay, your behavior makes you a liability to the company. You need to address it or I will. This is your warning.”

<<Time passes with no positive progress>>

Boss says “Jay, we’re cutting back and I’m going to have to release you. We appreciate everything you have done and wish you well” =>What he/she means=> Jay, you big up. I gave you fair warning and you were too stupid to listen. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

Boss says to rest of employees “Jay has left to seek other opportunities, effective today” =>What he/she means=> “I fired his dumb azz for recklessly endangering himself, others and the financial well being of this company.”

So unless you're a rainmaker and they can't survive without you, you might consider being a bit more contrite... or just tune up your resume.
