Thumbs down Fashion before Function

I've entered this site today to express my concern for the "fashion" riders that plague our roadways. These people purchase a sportbike trying to look cool and fit in with the crowd, and for some strange reason they do "fit in" because it seems as the majority of sportbike owners can't ride their bikes for shit. I'm not Anthony Goebert or a Starboy and personally I don't care if I ever do reach the status of a recognized motorcycle operator. But when I fly by 4 bikes on one wheel and smoke their asses to the point of destinantion only to hear some old man yell at me about responsible riding I get confused. Why is this old man riding a 180mph+ ZX12R and not using it? My non-conformist solution is to start bustin his balls about trading his pupose built motorcyle in for a nice Virago 650. My point is all you safety concious sportbike riders out there need to keep to yourselves, just because I'm a confident and capapble rider doesn't give you the right to label me as a "statistic" or "unresponsible"

Oh yeah and one more thing ... at least TRY to ride your bike
I know your mom used to tell you practice makes perfect

Because this affects all sportbike riders, I think I'll slide this over to Daily Rider so we can get a more varied reaction to this.

I agree with Jena, same to you from me!

Just because some of us ride like we have a brain doesn't mean we don't love riding sportbikes and have a great time while doing it and while wearing proper gear.

Hahaha

Its nice to have a good laugh before I go to work.

I think you're confusing riding skill with showing off. Go to a local track day. Spend a few hours there, and then come back and report how skilled of a rider you are.

To all who have responded thus far, does this not look familiar?!?!

I noticed right away that this is a profile I have seen here before, and though I don't have time at the moment to check IP addresses, I suspect that what we have here is a case of dual identities trying to get a little rise out of us.
