The idiot on the Hardley Ableson

Coming home tonight on the Gulf Freeway, I saw an older Hardley enter the freeway ahead of me. Mostly I noticed the passenger on the back. I was doing my typical 75 mph or so and they are pulling away from me at a fast pace and weaving thru traffic. I decided to speed up and watch the show. As we got further South the lanes opened up and I'm doing 106 mph indicated to keep up with this guy and still haven't caught him. Finally I get a wide open lane and catch this nut. He is in the typical black tee shirt and jeans with sunglasses the only protection on his head. The female is wearing short shorts, a very small tee shirt, and flip flops. The bike is one of those stretched chopper types with one tiny brake disc on the front. I hope they made it to their destination cuz if they went down at that speed there is gonna be one of a mess for someone to clean up.

WOW!!! I had some dumbass w/ passenger try that wih me out on the Beltway near Wallisville. I pulled off the feeder onto the beltway and this Hardley comes booming up to me in the same lane! Needless to say he couldnt compete with the ninja but he tried to stay with me.
after about the century mark he backed off but I think his female passenger screaming is what really convinced him.

Reminds me of the Harley I saw last month.. got on 290 at Hwy 6, headed into town, lots of traffic. Jumped into left lane, pulled out the cell and made a call or text. Then proceeded to dig out the cig and try to light it. All this was while he was rolling at 75 mph, no hands on the bars, cars all around him. He had one of the flat plexi shields on the front so I guess it was giving him enough wind protection.... and the bullet proof doo rag on the head.

A chopper doing 110mph+ pretty good. If you would have been a true sportbike rider you should have wheelied past him and then gave him the nod.

. Burned on my own thread. You are somewhat right. I was way above the speed limit but I don't weave in and out of traffic, cutting people off and taking wild chances. I don't ride without gear and I especially don't do crazy with a passenger on back or allow them to ride with me unless they are geared up.

As far as the woman on back. She looked GOOD!! I hope she survived the ride and still looks that way today.

I just take it down a notch when I have a passenger. We've run Deals Gap two up and still had a blast.

You said it better than I could, what I thought was really funny is that this guy popped in talking about another idiot Harley that he decided to race down the beltway...but don't worry, he got away after 100 mph
