Intelligent politics for you at work!

I guess if we want to eliminate DUIs, we just outlaw cars. A drunk person on a horse or bicycle can't do much harm...

an intoxicated person walking home from the bar typically won't do much harm either, but there are laws against that

This is just silly.

This law is only going to force law-abiding and "smart" riders to spend more time and money on the licensing, while the posers will just ignore the law.

You can't expect people to jump a hurdle when they can just go around it.

How would they enforce the law?? Anybody can just buy a liter bike right now. Would they pass legislation to restrict the sale of + 649 cc motorcycles only to qualified buyers? Gub'ment getting too Big Brotherish today as it is...

You need to remember the statistics... This community is good. On any ride we go on almost everyone has a motorcycle license and we only find out if they don't when there is a wreck and I say "if you don't have a license or have a warrant, leave now we'll meet up with you later."

As for others I meet alot of them dont have a license nor taken any courses. For someone like me whom sweats out the summer w a jacket and believes in safety first it kills me.

As for the Utah stipulations... Good start. I like road experience too... I'd prefer to require a year in a car so they learn the roads, etc. they can ride dirt bikes till they are 17... then do the step program. When you're 18 the govt says you are responsible... Not to drink but riding a bike.
