Here, here. We came up with our own marginal system.

Default U.K. riders are smarter

Go move.. I think Britain is way ahead of Americans when come to motorcycles. The top selling bikes in the U.K. are all sportbikes. This proves they are way ahead of the curve (U.S.) i.e. sportbikes when driven within the law are the safest bikes. While schools in the U.S. are eliminating drivers ed programs, it's refreshing to see a country going the other way. Keep in mind the Brits actually use bikes for transportation rather than poser activity and bar hooping.. Great move U.K..and God Save the Queen...

Intelligent folks learn from others.. Actually in the past we did get where we are by using the best from everywhere. i.e. the melting pot thing.. Trouble is in the last few years we have become ethnocentric (the move to shutdown immigration) perhaps its a sign that our country has entered middle age i.e. closed minded, grumpy, In fact maybe as country the U.S. is GPTB.. just kidding..

We'll have the new system running smoothly in no time. Well use the Postal System and the DMV as the models of efficiency.

The first thing I'll need is a 1.3 billion dollar budget for research and development. I'll need four 50 man committees, 6 dozen city engineers, 4 union heads from each state, and a team of shrinks from the top 10 universities in the country.



I'll also need a secondary budget for payoffs, bribes, and falsifying research to match my needs.



Additional funding will be needed at roughly 300% of the original budget.



I feel if everything goes according to plan, we can have this puppy up and running by 2015.



We'll call the project The Big Tier.

Young drivers with a better attitude are less likely to drive over my head when I'm out on the bike due to surpassing their talent horizon.

Sounds reasonable; let's add .10 to a gallon of gas and .25% to sales tax. We'll have it paid off by 2011 and you and I can pull 4 years of gravy.

You guys need a private contractor to ensure full efficacy of all metrics of the new system paradigm and to ensure full engagement of employee embracement. $250 million should be enough for my serivces in this capacity per annum.



Naturally a 10% kickback will be returned to you... er, I mean your services in an advisory capacity will be utilized.

How about a $500 Safety Evaluation Service Fee on every bike sold?



Nothing would actually be done with this service fee, but who's going to vote against something that has the word safety in it? What, you don't want things to be safe?
