MotoCity

Riding in to work today, was looking forward to leaning in the I-10 to BW8 single lane overpass at my usual brisk pace and I got caught behind some slow-pokey cagers. (I only have 2 lame overpasses on my work commute so I have to take advantage!)

While waiting forever to cut around, I was thinking... man, we oughta have a motorcycle only lane. No wait, how about a motorcycle only freeway system? Or even better, how about a whole city for only motorcycles?

Freeway speeds = 100 mph. Hairpin exit ramps. All moto parking. Cops that UNDERSTAND. Moto stores, Moto tv channels, Moto repair shops, designated curb monkey spots, PP1-PP100, leather stores, race tracks, forest routes...

Of course, anyone caught stealing any bikes or gear would be immediately and mercilessly beaten, banned and dumped in the nearest river.

What other perks? Most importantly, what would we name this new town?

Haha... thanks I know. Riding behind a slow car gives you lotsa time to think of dumb .

Oh yeah, free unlimited skydives and bungee jumps in MotoCity, btw.
