Maybe what I should do is troll in my pickup and "brake job" the offender. I suspect that after peeling some riders off my tailgate the message might get out.

There are open back roads with no traffic available. I-75 and Burlington Pike are not among them.

This type of riding gives all bikers a bad name.

Currently, bikes are welcome around Rabbit Hash, and the great majority of riders ride sensibly. However, I have seen a few doing irresponsible and stupid things. If this continues the locals, me included, will pull in the welcome mat and make life difficult for the riders. It is sad that, as always, that a few can spoil a good thing for the many.

For the record; sensible riding, in my opinion, does not always agree with the law, but with common sense. I have been known to double the limit, and to lift the wheel during hard shifts. I do feel comfortable and in control while doing this and never do it in an unnecessarily risky environment.

I never implyed that it was safe anywhere on a public road...... what i said is people are left with no where but public roads to mess around. you mention back roads as a safer alternitive but i know from experance no matter what back road you stop on some ones whos house is not far away calls the law. Have you ever paid attention while driving down the road at the stuff that will kill you if you hit it at speed??????? There is really no place to perform stunts, so people stunt on the streets in public. I would go to a place that let me perform stunts if there was one.


and by the way..... you just told 1600 motorcyclest that you would intentionaly take out another rider in your cage just cause you didnt agree with how or what they ride....

My comment about trolling was intended to be a response to your comment about how I should buy a parking lot...., and shares the same likelihood of actually happening. Key word there is "maybe".

If you were truly on a "back road" there would be no neighbors to call the law. There certainly are places in the area that one can find no traffic at all.

My points are;

If you must do wheelies and stoppies, the interstates and busy streets are not the place.

By doing a wheelie while approaching me you are putting my safety at risk. This is a risk I choose not to take. I have every right to complain about that. If I'm not there I am not at risk. Since I have the right to be there, the burden of not putting me at risk is yours.

Please, be cool around the General Store.

Just read your post again.

Where did you get "... what they ride...."?

I never made mention of any type or brand of bike. Almost all bikes today are capable of wheelies.

Sorry, about the double post.

Notice I said almost all.

I wouldn't be so sure I can't catch you on a cruiser. I don't know what you ride, but just 'cuz it's a sport bike don't necessarily mean you can run away from me in a straight stretch.

Does that look like a Harley in the pic?

Thumbs down Don't worry!!!!!

You won't catch me at the General Store doing anything stupid, Like sitting there and Drinking a minimum of 6 BEERS with 15 of buddys( who are drinking just as much) and then get on my bike( without my helmet, cuz I gotta live free, ride free) and ride out into traffic.

Don't worry you'll never find me doing anything stupid like that at the General Store.

As far as you're truck statement...WHAT AN ASS!

There is a place. They charge a small fee and you can stunt all you like.

Doesn't stop people pulling crap in traffic though.

Interesting point BamBam.
  • There's club racing and track-days-a-plenty out there for those with a desire to lean.
  • There's test-n-tune nights and Street Chaos nights for those that have the need for speed.
  • There's Off-Road Courses for those that like to push their limits in the mud.
  • Etc.

However, it doesn't seem to stop ppl from doing things outside of the 'sanctioned' environment.

Something about getting caught up in the moment I guess. Are any of us not guilty of "pushing the limits" once in a while?

I know a very wise man who took himself off of the street and now only rides on the track...ahem... and in the campground. For him it was a personal decision and he knew and often says "Ya'll don't want to ride on the street w/me. I'll ruin the day." IMHO he's an extreme case. Most of what's seen on the street is a once in a while, caught up in the moment kinda thing.

I say, "Let he (or she) who hasn't sinned ('been caught up in the moment') before be the first to cast a stone."

Clarification.

I didn't mean at all to imply that BamBam or anyone else had done anything in this thread _except_ make an interesting point.

Hey Dano.... You need a 8" skid plate on the tail and gear it down too (what we used at gratton the first time is ok but need to go up another 4 tooth in the back prolly).. I was chatting with the guys that were dong the stunt show at Pro-Star this weekend and the skid plate and real low gearing is the ticket.. They bring it up in first gear keep throttle the same and use back brake for control for those slow balanced 12 clock wheelies...
