WTF???? we pay taxes and insurance just like cagers. why do we have to deal with so many fuc#ing tar strips (overbanding)???? yes it's a cheap way to do minor repairs, but at what expense??
i almost bought the farm yesterday on the way down to watch the race. my girtfriend was not impressed when to bike hit one lunged left while the bars were turned left and we were halfway to the ground. i wasn't all too impressed when my leg was shoved a couple of inches into my hip socket when i put my foot down to avoid a crash.
this shit should be outlawed. i know we should try to avoid it at all costs, but have you seen how much is out there recently?? it doesn't help when it follows the corner your on perfectly, and unless you stop and lift your bike over it, there is no way of avoiding it.
i was only doing 35 km's yesterday when it happened, i though i was being safe. well, the onlly safe place is at home i guess.
