While I'm not sure of the employment status of our membership, this site, as compared to other motorcycle sites, strives to have more of a mature/responsible attitude. Do we all routinely break laws while riding? Probably. Anyone who says they haven't is a liar, IMO. However, we also realize the consequences of those actions, and take the punishment that comes with it when caught.
It is because of this that we give little to no slack to those bitching about getting ticketed for breaking the law. Basically if someone is too stupid to not get caught, why should we cut them a break?
As far as saying the only place to go fast is the track, that is because it is the only "safe" place to do so. No matter what you think, there is no safe place on the road. Even empty roads with no traffic and no cops. Can you control animals running into your path? Debris on the road? Things like this are more controllable on a track and make it safer. Riders here suggest taking it to the track not to spoil people's fun but to keep them as part of the riding community as opposed to being street pizza.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
