Bunch of bullshit personal attacks in this thread. Animosiy written all over it. With all the resentments towards one another, not much effort or focus on a solution.

Why in the would I want to go to the track with any of u smart belittling the forest riders. Making fun of how slow they are, or how much of a noob they are, or how fast ur lap times are.

Never once have any of you EVER invited me to the track on a ride? Why? Cause you dont ride on the street anymore, you say.

How in the do you think I got introduced to the track? On the street. Not by any of you, but by someone else, who rides street and track. This is why I give MH ZERO credit for my enrollments on the track days. And the minute those people arent instructing, I'm moving to another organization. You probably dont give a , cause my money doesnt go to you.

You all just act like a buncho tough fast wanna be racers. Not here to help the new guy. Yea...youll help them when they pay thier money. And why? Cause u want them to be good? Or because u get a free track weekend out of it.

Bunch of grandiose if you ask me. Thats why when I go to the track, I DONT ASK ANY OF YOU FOR HELP. I go to the real people. The ones I trust.

Off topic but I dont give a .

I appologize for bringing riders together, providing an opportunity for those whom want to increase their skills in a safer way on the street. I promise I will look inward more often and leave newbie riders to make their own mistakes while they are riding alone or with their newbie friends.

And yet again I wanna reiterate is there one person that went off or down that didn't blame themselve completely? And give props to the group?

Thanks. See you Saturday bro.

I think it may be time to lock this dirty hooker of thread down.

Agree?

Sure try to use the HOV lanes when possible. That way you only have one vehicle to worry about... Course some cannot even get that one down...

I agree with most of what you say except for having "that person" in front of you. That is the best place for them to be, cuz you're looking at them. You sure don't want them behind you.

I may be wrong. but I heard once someone (i honestly dont know who) went on some of the hot riding roads and spray painted x's or boxes or something on the really bad corners.... i may be wrong. but i kinda thought that was a good idea . and then in the riders meeting, run across it so ppl know what to look for?!?!

I wish there was a solution. I truly do! and im sure every "forest" or "street" rider wishes streets were safer. No one wants to lose a friend of loved one. but the only way it could be better was if there was never a car in sight. all trees/poles were removed. the ditches were filled with soft grass or pillows. Its just not humanly possibel guys, as much as we wish it was. So it will always resort in the end to the individual making the choice to take the risk or not.
