Has anyone noticed that the last few accidents reported have been under 25. Think this has anything to do with it??

Glad I'm old and not invincible anymore. Still sorry to see riders go down thou.

Well i wouldnt necessarily say its all black and white like that. You'll always have people with no self control that. Like the last time i let my buddy ride my bike, he said he opened it up to 90 on geddes. I was just like damn... that was stupid.

I always say theres a time and a place for stuff like that, and 94 @ 1am is definitely not it. In the best case you'll get caught speeding (i have ...theres always cops on that road), worst case scenario ends up in the news.

Didn't mean it like that Halik. More like we only hear about young sport bike riders in the news... not the older guys riding cruisers or sport bikes.

your right Chris... I say all newbies should start out on 50's!

You know...over in I think the UK you cant just jump on any bike you want when you first start out... I think they have a cc limit like 125 or something... it might not be a bad idea to do the same here.. I know the doomsday crew will jump up and down about that but if it saves some lives it might be worth it...
