anyways these are pretty much just for this month alone, and not alll of them by any means, my point is , in alot of ways imho id say most of those crashes were ther riders fault, that may not be fair to say, but from my own exp, there are alot of thing a rider can do to prevent these, such as learning how not to stay in blind spots, not wheeling on freeways, when to pass, learning some basic maintanace on bikes, how to get the feel of wind pushing your , and how to controll it, msf teaches some of these things but many forget about it once there actually riding on highways instead of a parking lot, guess im trying to see if any of the vet riders, meaning people who have been riding for a few years are willing to do some type of teaching to alot of the noob riders out there because summer is coming up soon and like every year more and more noobs come out of the wood works and endanger more innocent people as well as them selves, was thinking like once a month if any one wants to get together and pretty much show them or teach them things that will keep them and other people safe , maybe at a park where an open lot is they can buy everyone lunch, lol, im not good enough to teach anyone so anyone else? :dontknow:

How would you like to get sued over someone crashing/dying cause you taught someone "How to ride". That is why we say take it to the track. You'll have insured people behind your back if you go there.

I had some guy on a Sportster actually go out of his way to keep getting in my blind spot the other day. I passed him, so he sped up to get in my blind spot. . . so I'd slow down. He'd slow down and get right there again. WTF?!?!?!? I could tell he was a new rider though because both stoplights we would come to, he would almost drop the bike.

Unfortunately the prices for a highperformance bike is much less then that of a car and requires alot more control.

In the real world you don't tap 'X' for the rider to reappear on the road like in video games. People often learn the hard way but that is the risk they take whether they are wise enough to realize the risks or can't see past the shroud of invinsibility over their eyes

...to clarify Omega..

loose change = cents (ie: sense)
grab a bat, loose change and beat some cents into someone.

1 problem is the serious lack of 'common sense' & there's no real way
to teach anyone that.

there are too many rip threads and it's only gonna get worse bro. i'd say continue to educate noobs when they do somethin wrong. they might get cuz they feel like they're bein called out, but f#@$ it. someone's gotta do it. i got into it wed night with a noob. he came around me speedin between me and the shoulder of the lane. when i asked him what the f$#! was he doin passin me up on the shoulder he tried to argue to use my brakes so he could see my brake lights. i pointed out that i only use my brakes if i'm stoppin, if i'm slowin down then i down shift. i tried to explain to him that he was doin 2 things wrong - 1. he was too close behind me & 2. he was goin too fast. it sucked gettin into w him but i didn't want it to happen again. so, i'll just ride without him next time

if they listened they wouldn't be called noobs.

and since I'm somehow, magically the first to ask;

HAVE THEY TAKEN THE MSF COURSE? RACER WANTS YOU TO! DON'T LEARN MISTAKES FROM ANOTHER IDIOT IN A PARKING LOT!
