PP1 - AGAIN!

Ok people - enough is enough.

I talked to the owner of the property there last night, and I honestly have to agree with him - much as it galls me to say it.

#1 - We all know what a bike sounds like bouncing of the limiter. We also all know that anyone who does it is a douchebag. There's no reason for it. It isnt cool, and frankly it irritates your fellow riders.

#2 - Burnouts are not only a similarly silly thing, but have the real problem of being a little dangerous. Brake slips out from under your fingers and someone is getting hurt. Stop it.

#3 - Is it REALLY so hard to keep to the 4 to a space rule?

#4 - Just as we get pissy with cagers who dont pay attention in parking lots, I've seen a lot of us do the same thing. Give them some room - and the same courtesy you expect.

#5 - Pick up your trash.

#6 - Stop blocking the doors.

#7 - It isnt just the sport bike guys - a lot of the more noticeable noise comes out of the cruiser crowd. Loud pipes do sound nice, but not EVERYONE wants to hear them all the time. Bear in mind also that low frequencies travel further than higher ranges. Its off the people in the condos and hotels too.

In short - the owner's right. We're being . Tone it down, act like adults and try to not clog the parking lot before 9pm and he probably wont have an issue. Keep it up - and he's going to start having people towed and arrested in a couple weeks.

Besides, dammit - sometimes I want my Quad Viente Espresso Truffle at midnight and I wanna take the scoot. Its the only 24 hour Starcrack I know of.

Oh, so what you're saying is common sense and courtesy actually works in most situations? Go figure.

I think a lot of the people that go there aren't MH'ers so I dunno how many ppl will see this, but it's just common sense. I've been there just to hang out several times in my car and the constant revving gets annoying as . There's no reason for it.

I've always been a little puzzled by people who purchase a high performance, two wheeled, engineering masterpiece that practically screams to be ridden hard in the freedom of the open road, then pack it into a parking lot with other such machines while standing over it sipping some over complicated, over priced beverage and generally engaging in all sorts of man to man jerk-offery that can only be aptly described with the grotesque term "bromance".

Time to switch to decaf.

I have a great idea: If you want to keep hanging their, stop making posts here about it (aka preaching to the choir) and start speaking up to the asshats who are actually doing it AT PP1.

...maybe some suggestions on how to legaly handle it from a leo's point of view. Might help avoid some of the testosterone penile comparisions that are likely to happen w/o it.

Wouldn't handling it legally mean getting cops on the property.........which is exactly what they're trying to avoid?


The best bet is to attempt to embarass the ****-offs until they stop. Thats really the only recourse. However, making a cute little list here doesn't accomplish that. You gotta call them out.

Use common sense and abide by the rules that have been set.
Seems pretty simple to me.

I enjoy both. Some days are for the forest. Some days are for Starbucks.

Just like with the hot rod. Sometimes you go to the car show and sit there in your lawn chair for a couple of hours with the hood up. Other days you go to the drag strip. It's all part of it for me.
