Default San Diego instructor tells noobs not to ride

Is great fuel mileage worth the risk?

He's right. Most people have no business on a bike. Especially the noobs who want an R1. That longride guy is a menace also.

Hey! Them guys doin' wheelies at 90mph down the 405 are just doin' their part to conserve energy and our roads! See, one wheel contacting the pavement only has as much friction and does only as much damage as TWO WHEELS doin' 45!

So Squids is even better at conservin' the environment than Algore!

just another sanctimonious wanker. motorcycles are fun and cheap on gas, they should emphasize that instead of all this motorcycles are dangerous crap, if you think that way don't flippin' ride 'em.

Iam Mcgregor, long way down and long way home...Not everyone who wants a sport bike wants to be a menace though, I think they are good for stop and go riding around the block for handling and stopping they are hard to beat. As for most people having no business on a bike heck the more people who get into it the more will appreciate them when they drive their cars around those on a bike.
