The 200+mph video has been debunked as an early 'Busa speedo installed on a later model - actual terminal speed was probably 170-180mph - not something to thumb your nose at, but not nearly as fast as it appears.

What are you saying, that we must take responsability for our own actions ? CRAZY!

Ha! Good reason to stay away from places like that. Stealth is the answer.

As a proud resident of N. GA I can tell you..............

Basically, the Fox TV Guy made it clear that only a few out of the many cause the problem. The Loop, as it's known, is a great ride. Go have fun and watch for Troupers.

I was very disappointed that only 13 motorcycle "drivers" were killed. Should have been all 308. Live fast; die young. Stupid hurts. How about a LAW that requires any rider of a "sport bike" to take a 3 week classroom course and a 4 week rider course. Part of classroom course is to visit a morgue and look at the mangled bodies of motorcycle "drivers" killed. Had a driving course similiar to this in the Army that showed a movie of some state's highway patrol accident investigations. A severed head from a body, and other such juicy stuff REALLY made one think HARD. Also another law; anyone seen doing a wheelie on a public road loses his license and bike permanently. NOW THAT will get some attention.

It's too bad the "self-eliminating" segment of the motorcycle population sometimes injures or kills innocent motorists.



These guys usually kill themselves before anyone has a chance to kick their asses. It's a shame that they die before receiving a well-deserved ass-kicking.

I figured, I set most of my wheelies down at 110. There's an eye roll in there somewhere.

"How about a LAW that requires any rider of a "sport bike" to take a 3 week classroom course and a 4 week rider course."



And then what, make cruiser riders do it twice?

It's not like any companies market the bikes to be fast. I'm waiting for the lawsuit about marketing a race-bred bike that should have made "that" corner.
