Use Your Brain, Please!

We had the MotoGP here this weekend. As usual, someone was killed due to someone else having their head up their ass. I just don’t get it. These were not kids, although they were on very friggen fast bikes, in heavy traffic! I ride that road all the time. You don’t make a u-turn on a normal day. And how can the bikes going the other way be so inattentive that they don’t see what’s ahead of them? Speed baby! You just left the racetrack and now you’re a racer. Well I got news for you. That piece of shit you’re riding isn’t the same thing they run on the track. Not even f’ing close! Stop doing that crap in traffic. You’re killing the ones that support you!

There are some later unconfirmed reports that alcohol may be involved. Which brings up another rant. Booze and bikes don’t mix. Save it for when the ride is over. A split second of slowed reaction time is all it takes to kill your best friend.

Everyone is a racer, but without the talent, leather, expensive helmet, other talented riders, and everyone going the same direction this is what can be expected. Sorry for the family of the guy killed.

AZHD: Yes, it’s sad when this stuff happens. The authorities can only do so much. Once folks get on the road it’s their judgment. Seems like every time there’s an event at Laguna Seca something happens. I just wish people would save their enthusiasm for when they’re far away from the congestion.

I don't know what it is about some people and sport bikes. They get on sport bikes and forget all reason and become a little insane. They lose respect for their machine and for others around them.
