People don't pull out in front of us because they are stupid. They pull out assuming you are doing the speed limit (if they see you coming at all) and far enough for them to fit in.

Disclaimer- I was no worse then you until I was 30. Then I took it to the track and got to really go fast. Its much safer and fun. Its worth every penny. Now I am a 10 over guy on the street. The street is no place for this. It gives bikers a bad name.
Exactly.

You've sure read that I said it was my fault. Nevertheless one should not just stop on a freeway just for fun and that was exactly what he did as he wanted to "have a look at the nice mountains".
I did trackdays for years but this has nothing to do with street riding. And riding fast on streets has nothing to do with age or rationality. No one buys a 185hp superbike to crawl along. I understand what you are saying and I never would call you old or rotten as long as I dont know you well. I have sold my supersports bikes and I am now riding BMW's, meaning I have to go slow anyway Just kidding...
Thanks for thoughts, much appreciated.


PS. Am not a native speaker, what's a "10 over guy" ??

Thumbs down

You do a hundred on public road ways you get what you get. Even if it is someone else doing something stupid, if you weren't doing stupid speeds you could have avoided it.

If someone rear ended me while I was turning because he'd been doing 100mph. I'd punch him in the fucking face.

Just sayin'

My punching hero. Am not surprised, maybe a bit that it took so long till the first wisenheimer appears.... one of the many guys who always do everything right, ride correctly adhere to speed limits and never do anything which is either against law or is fun or both.....

A 10 over the speed limit guy. I don't completely follow the laws. I am usually about 10 mph over the speed limit. Yeah, those BMWs have a way of slowing you down. The things can't seem to pass anything. Not even a Starbucks.

Really?

Really? Your doing 100+ on a public street, and you rear end someone and its THEIR fault? I am an insurance adjuster for auto and bikes. YOU are the guys I LOVE to see come across my desk, I can smell the premiums already. Unfortunately, part of your stupidity sheds off on others premiums, not to mention the cost of lives. Please allow me to correct one train of thought though, one person doing something foolish, never gives another the right to cause their death, or do something many times as foolish. Yes, the Sr should have found a safe place to pull over to see the sights, but that does not compare to the stupid riding. My insurance company would make that 300.00 fine look pretty paltry.



FOOL!

Thanx for sharing Steveman. Moments like that aren't caught very often. What a scolding you're getting.
How does it feel to be treated as a child, that doesn't know the risk of motorcycling at high speeds? I'm glad your OK.
