No one owes you anything on either road.

That's not being self-righteous. It's just seeing the world for what it is. I don't think that Harley wagon trains have any right blocking traffic and having Road Captains block intersections like they're a parade.
I also don't think that anyone should have to make way for a guy on a sporting machine.

You want a parade, buy a permit and do it downtown. You want a trackday, go to a track. Otherwise, ride and be polite, enjoy the BRP and the dragon, and accept that sometimes you can't ride balls out because there are other people on the planet.

Yeah, I agree.

I'm working in LA now just a stone's throw from Angeles Crest. Great road, but jeez I get freaked by the "sportriders" who can't ride worth shit. I talked to a CHIP yesterday at a starbucks. Three dead riders in last month on the Crest. All of them hauling ass and crashing. I stay away from the Crest mainly cuz I worry about gettting nailed by someone coming the other direction over the double-yellow.
