ah, right in my own backyard......
There are too many guys out here on big bore bikes who fly up and down 95 and 695 all day on Saturday and Sunday in packs of 6-20 (seriously thre are that many)weaving in and out of traffic at speeds of 110+. I hate to be biased, but a lot of them are from the city, and all they know how to do is twist the throttle. Get them on a country road and it's a whole different ball game.
It gives all the (relatively)responsible sportbikers a bad name in this area, so now we all have to watch our backs to avoid being unfairly targeted. I ride fast, but I don't ride stupid, and I avoid the rough-rider mentality alltogether. It pisses me off when I come to work to hear another story about how close someone came to being hit, cut-off or run off the road by bikers going too fast and playing lane pinball.
