I'm still trying to figure the logic in being a supporter of big govt when after all it's big govt schools that are so abysmal.

Default clueless in seattle

Ok thanks for making it clear to me il.e. giving me a clue. That is then his hypothesis. I disagree with it.. When I had a Google alert reader that looked for news about motorcycle accidents I would read many stories about inexperienced older riders losing control of their heavy cruisers. In fact I have posted several articles to MO in the last year...from different states that have proposed that thesis. My business training says its probably not worth it to legislate it out as you say but the engineer in me says we should strive for the safest reasonable approach. To me a tiered system is reasonable.. i.e. A middle aged man with no experience should not start out on a 700 lb cruiser and a squid shouldn't start out on a 150 hp sportbike..

I'm on your side on this. But as riders we are hughly out numbered so when spit hit the fan in the insurance industry we suffer first. Like I said to one of my customer just moments before "I don't make the rules. I just force you to play by them."

I'll not argue with you there. But this is the USA - it's not Illegal to do either. Ergo, many will.

This is a couple of years out of date, but you may find it informative - it deals with rider training (as opposed to licencing per se) in Europe.

Touche He must of been bought off, brain washed or maybe Bush has pictures of him doing something he shouldn't be.. I don't think the people of the U.K. were for the war in the beginning though..unlike the U.S. where Faux News led the cheer leading for war.
