Simple, really. Merely ban all Motorcycles for use on Public and Private Properties and Roads.

Quick, Easy, relatively Painless.........(to Joe Taxpayer)

It'll never happen. Just look at old cars, they don't meet emissions they're relatively unsave and could be banned in the same way.

Only problem is it would never really go through with out the government offering to replace them with a car that could be still be used for transportation - same with motorcycles.

I mean think of all the people that use motorcycles as transportation it would cost a lot to replace those. Not to mention all the dealerships that would have to close down.

You've not been paying-attention to what Government "Does", have you?

To think it CAN'T happen is Foolish. They're only Death Machines that are potentially being banned - it's not like they're attempting to Eradicate an entire ethnic group or Political Dissidents from the face of the Planet. Like any Government would ever let THAT happen.

Oh, Wait............

How about cranking up your word processor when you're done and banging out one of your cool-o motorcycle history write ups? I really like them!

Our Transportation Sec is 1- a woman and 2- a motorcyclist. Guess which one always comes first. Women, traditionally, prefer security before anything else. That said, it was only a matter of time before she figured out a way to protect us from ourselves. Conversely, she has ignored the fact the "cagers" are terribly ill-equipped to handle todays ever increasing motorcylist community. Public safety should educate current, but more importantly, beginner or novice drivers that the roads are now filled with motorcyclist like you and me.

Why do we never see any attempts at proper training for cagers so they can learn how to open their eyes and see motorcycles around them?

But who in 1960 would have believed that you could be arrested in several cities in 2007 for smoking a cigarette in your own back yard.

Safety nazis know no restraint. YThey know what's best for you and are willing to kill you to prove it. Their own consciences approve of their fasicsm and that makes them insatiable and more dangerous than suicide bombers in the long run.

True. But they will still do their best to make us as miserable as possible. It won't matter if they are banned if there are so many restrictions and regulations that it becomes nigh impossible to own one. They will do it. In that the stick-up-the-@ss safety oppressors and their sanctimony are as regular as the sun rise.
