Somehow this doesn't seem all that wrong...

First 205 in MN and now this. I now get to watch my insurance go through the roof. When will these people learn that we'll loose our rights to ride if this BS keeps up.

With all the attention this kind of stuff has gotten recently in the news, one would think that this has never happened before.



I guess what they don't know won't hurt them.



The fact that it's a news story in spite of it's frequency highlights the fact that most motorcyclists can do this occassionally without killing anybody, themselves included.



Motorcyclists, due to their reduced risk of injury to others, should have different rules than the average brain-dead and uncoordinated cage driver. To wit, put motorcycles under a common-law rule. No harm, no foul.

Umm...



How about we take a poll... I'd like to see how many people here have never popped 150 on a public road.



I don't think its possible to merge onto an interstate without breaking 130. I don't know how to not do it.



What say you?

You are kidding, right? People have been doing this in cars for years.



My insurance has gone down and I still have the right to drive my car.



Get real!!

I can neither confirm nor deny going over 150 mph on a public road.

It is a sportbike owner's responsibility to test out how fast their new bike can go. It is also a requirement of sportbike ownership to race (and obliterate) rich yuppy sportscar owners, especially if the rich yuppy sportscar owner has a piece of asp woman in the passenger seat 15 years his junior.
