Postby moneypit » Wed Apr 29, 2015 3:30 pm

Just doing some ribs on the grill and all I can hear is a crotch rocket off in the distance throttle pinned for 4 gears now if it is a 600 he's doing 150 mph if its a 1000 he's doing 175 mph. Im thinkin abit fast for the area.. He might make the papers later today...

That would have been me, many years ago... :)

Problem with those bikes is that they are impossible to ride to anywhere even remotely close to their capabilities on public roads, legally. Trundling through traffic at 15 mph on a 750cc superbike is just not fun.

That is something that I never see. The more usual sight is zipping past cars (or even between them).
I've even seen "packs" of riders block off the highway so some can do wheelies at 60+ mph.

The Dallas Fort Worth area has been in the worst traffic lists for quite some time and with about 6.5 million, rightfully so.
Especially with a sub-par public transportation system causing more cars on the road.

I tend to avoid highways while in town and much prefer taking weekend trips on any of the many scenic drives available once you get away from the metro-mess.

Seems to have worked for me so far, as I've ridden for 45 years and never even laid a bike down.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
