not trying to be a smart alec but with high traffic densities and a small country plus the european habit of wearing race leathers and helmets everytime you're on the bike, you guys probably don't have the chance to ride as fast or as hard as us.



For example I can leave my house and within a few minutes can be on mountain passes and hitting over a hundred almost at will. The only thing stopping me is the occasional log truck and wandering herds of Elk. Unfortunatly they can both stop you pretty dam quick LOL

"The problem is not you killing yourself (Darwin would approve), but you splattering 1/2 your brain on the sidewalk and leaving enough in your skull to live. Now society (or your insurance i.e. everyone else, or do you believe in Santa?) gets to pay a zillion $$ to keep you alive till you die of old age."



Only in a socialist nanny state emiles. Why is it that everyone in the world seems to be looking at government as the great diaper changer of society?

"And it can't happen here.

Oh it can't happen here.

You're safe mommy

You're safe daddy

You just get a little TV dinner and cook it up, cook it up

And it can't happen here."



If you liked that, next is a rendition of "Brown Shoes Don't Make it."

Careful ncelik, if you start making rational observations about the loss of freedom in our society you will be accused of being an out of the mainstream extremist.

I'd prefer Suzy Creamcheese.

My insurance bill then pays for your brain. Not government. Your free market insurance system.

I live in the heart of Seattle, I5 is 4 blocks from my house in Eastlake. I can do 100 on that too, as long as its not rush hour. In fact, I sometimes do, from the roanoke entrance to 65th where I go buy kickass steaks from Whole Foods. Great excuse for a 2 mile ride. I wear race leathers and a helmet every time; I ride multiple times per day. I don't know how that limits me, but apparently it does.
