    Motorcycle profiling safety signs

    Ok what is with all the highway signs that have been programed to read "MOTORCYCLISTS WATCH YOUR SPEED"...."RIDE SAFELY"

    What the hell is this? Maybe they should read Minivan drivers pay fuckin attention! or Blonde drivers put down your phone!
    Or how about Prius drivers move over please. (feel free to add more we can submit them to the ministry of highways later)

    Does anyone else find this somewhat insulting? Like it is only Motorcycle riders who need to watch their speed?What about the asshats in the beemers and audi's?

    Yeah I saw that this morning, wasn't impressed. The "speed" part of that bugs me the most - tell that to the minivan drivers with Kids in the back who do impound speeds.


    Every morning on my commute in I see people on phones, cars swerving due to texting, women putting on make up, etc. Heck, on my way home today the car in front of me side swiped the barrier diving eastbound and westbound at Brunette. He'd been swerving in his lane for a bit, probably texting, and as the corner curved left he went completely into the wall and then continued driving. Mirror came right off and is probably still sitting there.

    I think they used to read "Watch for motorcyclists," not "Motorcyclists watch your speed."
    Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

    Is this somehow part of motorcycle awareness month? Are they now suddenly aware of motorcycles and they see them as speeders and feel obliged to tell everybody?

    It used to say "watch for motorcycles" in previous years.
    The smart ass remark is new this year

    I agree that the message feels a little bit derogatory towards motorcyclists, as if we're all shitty road users who always speed and constantly break the law. Interesting that there are no signs targeting the guy I followed home driving his lifted toyota 4runner with a tail light out, swerving all over the place, passing another vehicle on the shoulder, and switching lanes a number of times without signalling.
    Of course if you're young, and out drinking, whoring, and toking till all hours on a Saturday nite, forget about it.

    Never seen it before, but have seen the "watch for motorcycles" sign everyone else is mentioning.
    "Yamaha" - it's Japanese for "fuck your sports car."

    Seen "Motorcyclist watch your speed" yesterday just after portmann bridge (going towards Vancouver). I thought it was because roads were so shitty, full of bumps and dips and dirt and crap due to the construction, that it was warning motorcyclists of the dangers. Never thought of it as being said in the way others mentioned.

    I'm pretty sure there for the many squids wearing their white tube socks and low cut white sneakers lane splitting between motorcycles on a completely empty highway.

    Either way it was an idle threat that you have it over 40 km/hr your going to be impounded. I say idle because I passed by a couple of those signs and saw the only cop at a station.

    I've seen the same thing last year along the #1 during construction.
    But it also said "road grooved ahead"

    Too funny,
    Sportbikes don't support BCCOM, but aren't shy about asking for help.
