The only problem is that the safety-nazis will then erode the 100hp limit. Next its 95 then 90 then..... so on and so on.



Like the stupid and utterly unscientific .08 limit. Now the meemies want a .04 limit. Never mind the armies of addicts hooked on legal derugs that fOck you up no end like percodan, prozac, benadryl.......

Ok, this is my hot button. "More motorcyclists are dying in wrecks as the sales of sport bikes surge across the count"?





What about dumb sh**s on Cursers who don't ware any protective gear at all? Plus, the only riding practice they get is on the 12 or so perfect Saturdays per summer. Riding from one bar the next? Oh yea, they're much more responsible.



Don't get me wrong, I'm just as mad the stupid kids who are about to get sport bikes outlawed for all of us. But speaking as a 40 something sport rider, the majority of us don't do this kind of crazy nonsense.





In my humble, and somewhat agitated opinion, sport bikes are the same as any other bike. Human Stupidity is the problem.



rant mode = off

Not bad mouthing, I was using the best example I could think of, of a "speed challenged" bike that was still lots of fun.

I'd like to have one for riding out to the mailbox and whatnot.

Default Re: (as quoted by my ex-wife)

"The doctor said I could take all of those so it must be ok" after I found her mountain of 'scrip drugs. I figured she was just drunk all the time

Limits are a tough call, once the cats out of the bag it's hard to keep a coller on them. The trouble is with this type of behavior you get loads of negetive publicity. All it takes is some politician with an axe to grind looking for a cause, and these nit-wits blazing past @ 140 flipping him off and we all look like fools

What we need is the AMA to get off this stupid helmet law fight and start working on countering the bad publicity the guys cause us.

A different opinion and a good one.



I should have said "...wasn't sold..." as opposed to "...could not be sold...". I would be upset if regulations became involved because they would surely be overboard and take the thrill out of what's so great about motorcycles. I guess my point in a more general statement was if there wasn't so much focus on hp then more focus may be put on riding skills.



I'm a little sensitive these days as these squids in and around Chicago are going to ruin my good time. They are killing themselves left and right on the interstates and the whole city seems to be talking about it. Now there is talk of helmet laws and legislation and blah blah blah. Now anytime I'm seen on the road on my red crotch rocket (never mind it's a sport tourer) I'm lumped in to the squid category. These knobs are really irritating me. I guess it's really not a joke when people talk about Darwinism running its course.
