I guess I need to hang around some squids so I can point them in the right direction cause I've yet to hear that as a justification to race or act an on the street

I ride plenty, you know that.
Didn't mean to make it sound like you hang out with squids, was just saying being around to talk to them and such. Maybe I haven't talked to enough squids maybe just too busy actually riding. . .

Of course not. I guess I just don't ride around too much in the places where squids are likely to pop up.

While I've come a long way with my experience and skill, I started where everyone else started and I know where I came from so

Ask anyone that comes and rides back roads with me on the weekends, that's not my attitude.

Settle down boys! No need to make this a contest! We all ride for OUR own enjoyment! Who cares if someone else doesn't understand why you ride the way you do. You don't ride for others approval right?

im just saying. your comment "i guess i ride where there arent any squids" kinda says otherwise. i ride the same back roads you do. youre doing anything you can to make myself and ulric out to be liars with your comments. yes people do use the lame excuse "because thats what its built for", which is the topic of this thread, and you went off on a tangent and went so far as to tell someone that has years--dare i say decades?--more experience than you that they ride like . ill put money on the fact that youve never even ridden with him. have you ever even MET the guy? because i have.

that was pompous and arrogant, any way you slice it.

No, Gary has work to do tomorrow and should've been in bed a long time ago instead of disagreeing with people on the net. But I'm out this thread now that momma came in I think we all need to stop the BS and just go out and ride. If you talk to a rider on the street who is acting an correct them on the spot and share some wisdom. Or shed some light on the importance of wearing gear if they lack protection. A little bit of focus on that kinda stuff instead of complaining or what have you could go a long way and help make a better and safer rider outta someone
Sounds like a plan

Yea, that part was stupid I admit, I got caught up in his douchy post about intelligent people comprehending the thread. So since I'm not a fukking genius like him, I figured I at least can hold my own when it comes to riding.

So, the laws changed and now instead of "reckless driving" or "exhibition of acceleration", these have been re-catagorized to "reckless endangerment".
A FELONY for doin a wheelie?
That's right... instant jail.
That's why I try to encourage people to come to a trackday. Almost everybody that has, comes away with a new perspective about street riding.
It has the added benefit of helping to keep the lawmakers off of bikes and focused on gun control. J/K but you get my meaning.
+1 i agree with u

working nights out here so im just getting up,

good morning!

i think there are people that are misunderstanding where im coming from and possibly lumping me into a squid catergory. im gonna have to clarify.

in no way was i ever condoning reckless behavior on the streets. nor was i using "ride it as its meant to be" as any kind of excuse or justification.

the reason i got a little verbal is because the quote ulric is basing his arument on was taken directly from me in a pm a few days ago when we had a disagreement. (COMPLETELY out of context by the way) and he seems to have this complex about it. so perhaps i took it the wrong way and blew it a little out of proportion. at any rate i apologize if i have offended ANYone, yes that includes you ulric, and hope yall hear where i am coming from.

regaurdless how you ride or what you ride: use youre good judgment and ride responsibly and safely!
