everyone has their own ideas and passing philosophy, just keep this guy's experience in mind when deciding to pass, or not... ff to 2:30 min for the pass then to 6:55

And if bike #2 had been running a car tire and ABS, he could have passed the truck easily!

Just remember that the base runner is not fearing opposing traffic.

If that had been me on the bike, the second that that asshole stepped out of the truck with the tire iron would have resulted in my shooting his sorry ass. And I'd have been fully justified in doing so, having seen him attempt to murder my friend eight minutes before, then attempting to kill me with an iron bar.

That road had a double yellow all the way, even though there were plenty of places to pass with ample sight distances. That just encourages drivers to violate the markings and pass others.

Justified... Maybe. But then you would need to live with the fact that you took another human's life when other options were open to you.

In full Gear I am in no way afraid of the asshat with his - whatever it was he was holding- and would have happily addressed it in a less lethal manner.

Pretty easy to see how you ride. I can tell you speed and pass on the double yellow all the time. Breakin the law, for no good reason besides you want to.

Which ever Kia you settle on it sounds like we shouldn't let you drive. You can sit next to this guy.

You say you ride at the track, but it sounds like you've never hit an apex.

Why? Because sometimes it seems like the right thing to do.

The only think I can say is this: wtf the word "apex" has to do with road riding?

The right thing?

He said shoot his sorry ASS, not kill him.

Handgun mortality is less than 20%, hitting him in the head with a length of pipe is probably more lethal.

Just sayin...

Look at the tags on the plate. Same bike, different day. One shot is earlier, tag is an '08. Other pic's tag is for '09. Pics could be up to two years apart, or two days.

Sorry, but you have me confused with yourself. I do not go around breaking the law for no good reason. Even if I wanted to I cannot afford what goes along with that, and that is a ticket. Even if I only get caught once, that would be enough to disrupt my ability to make a living.

Can you even define Apex? Having an Apex does not mean it has to be in the other lane. On the street you treat your lane as the entire road, treat it as if you cross that double yellow in the turn that you have just left the road and are in the ditch. I ride my lines in such a manner, I still use my track technique in that I create a late entry point and in turn have a later apex so that as I exit any turn I have more room in my lane to make any necessary adjustments.

On the track the entire width is your lane, there are no oncoming vehicles, no sand, gravel and other problems you can and often do encounter on the street. If you screw up and make a mistake on a turn you (At most tracks not all) have room for run off.

"You say you ride at the track" I DO Ride at the track.

Ya, "SEEMS like the right thing to do", to me it seems like becoming a better rider makes more sense than riding in the oncoming traffic.

I guess when your parents told you to go play in traffic you did.

You mean to tell me you've never ridden a road where the switch backs are so sharp you literally come to a stop to negotiate the turn and you didn't even ,just slightly, minimally, just barely, just maybe let your guard down for a moment and maybe have brushed the death defying,cancer causing, paranoia inspiring double yellow line of the devil.

That is too funny! I am not perfect far from it, but when out on any of the bikes my life and the lives of those who depend on me are tied to my ability to ride. Have I made mistakes YES, even crashed (Note: on MY Side of the road) I try to ride within MY limits and leave room for the unexpected things that can pop up. INTENTIONALLY crossing the double solid is not a practice I follow or recommend.

Again the point of traveling to these places is to enjoy the curves, so please tell me the point of making them straight? If that is what you want, move to Florida.
