That's an amazing shot, the whole contrast thing going on
with the Chevy and the socks.


Sorry mates, noob lurker catching up on threads.
Cold beers and bacon samiches all 'round.
Welcome. You'll fit right in.

It's a public road.

Bullshit! "Time" is relative... You can be doing 10 and if something pops out at you fast enough you can't stop...


God I love that thinking... Well lets just back all speed limits down? Forget 70 on highways, or 55 outside city limits... Hell, we can't drive as it is rightnow so it must be the speed limit's fault... Citizens for safe roads, how bout a nationwide 45mph limit?

And when we can't drive at those speeds, how bout backing it down to 35?

EDIT:




Sure as hell can't be a rider or driver's fault... And it's not like we can teach ppl how to ride and drive at "race car driver" speeds....


Oh wait...

Of course its not possible that the GS rider in the original photo / post was riding along behind a slower bike in front of him but out of the photo frame, had good sight distances, and was moving out for a quick pass over the double yellow on the upcoming straight-a-way.

Look again at the angle he is crossing. He is on the return trip from the other lane.

People in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks. Maybe if we're gonna ban trucks from all the roads on which you choose to break the law, we should ban motorcycles as well.

Ban everyone that can't stay on their own damn side of the road.

That would pretty much clear the place out, or so it would seem.
