What year is your sv? How do you like the Renegade sound - or did you choose it for another reason? I'm trying to decide what exhaust to put on mine.

Default Re: Road Rage and You

This subject seems to be getting outside Road Safety and into personal views on rights and politics

Back to 2 wheels

I've commuted 2 wheels in London, Paris, Jakarta, Abu Dhabi, New York - and driven accident free 38 years, >1 mill miles, tooled about on Ducati.s:-

If you choose to 2 wheel, you're choosing vulnerability - and you need to adapt to that.

Any trip, 20% kind and attentive, 60% doing the best they know how but no understanding at all of 2 wheelers, 20% hostile incompetents. You don't possibly have the time to educate every 5th car, and no way of doing so. All you can do is expect them, then avoid and distance them

Involvement is what we have bikes to get rid of!

Don't even get personal with the rolling hazards!

Ride safe and peacefully, friends

Default Yeah!

Thanks very much for your comment; posts like that make my day. Believe it or not, articles like this 1) require much more time to write than bike-review stuff, and 2) don't generate very much in the way of subscription or ad revenue.



However, I like to do them because it forces me to stay in practice as a journalist, and there are a number of MO subscribers who appreciate in-depth coverage in topics that are still motorcycle-related but off the beaten path. I'm glad you enjoyed it and will try to produce more stuff like this, since you are renewing.



Thanks again!



Gabe

Bob Dole just called - and Bob Dole says:



"kpaul'd better stop ripping-off Bob Dole's patented way of speech-making, or Bob Dole is gonna come over to kpaul's house and they'll have to remove Bob Dole's boot from kpaul's arse. Bob Dole doesn't like people makin' fun of Bob Dole, when Bob Dole reads about it, this makes Bob Dole mad as hell!"



Don't blame me, I'm just the messenger - Bob Dole said it..........



Nothin' but Love for ya!
