Yeah I'm likely to upset a few people but I could give 2 shits so I'm leaving off the sugar coating. I really hate coming into "General Sportbike Chat" & seeing RIP threads. I'm not buying any "don't read them if you don't like them" arguments either. I do not need or even want to be aware of who got cut in half by a telephone pole or who made their way into the grill of a semi.
I'm not showing disrespect to fallen riders but fuck me this is supposed to be Sportbike chit chat, isn't it? You know, light hearted shit like "omg the new beemer's headlights suck!" or "just how ugly is the Multistrada, anyways?" (just kidding, Scotty)
"Rider down" events deserve their own section in 'Local Scene', that way I can avoid the fucker completely.
