    well when you say it like that, i can totally agree with you.

    I agree with Frosty on this one. Randys stupid, careless and dangerous choices reflected badly on IR members and riders in general. He is a crash looking for a place to happen....or should I say a 2nd crash looking for a location. He brought down undeserved heat and endangered other road users. Hit a lane changing car ahead of you, going 200kmh faster than they are and you kill them and yourselves. If you knew the full story here nobody would support him in any way. If you think you are so great a rider that you are capable of safely riding at that speed, then take it to the track and prove it. He can afford to do it if he wanted.

    But then, he'd be up against real competition and really fast riders, and I'd bet his ego couldn't handle that.
    I define Hell as having to ride back and forth from Blaine to Tijuana on I - 5 in perpetuity.

    I always have a soft spot for the self employed person who sponsors himself at motorcycle racing.

    You make it sound so lucrative. Like Joe Schmoe buys a rental condo and somehow turns his weekly grocery shopping and fuel spend into a tax free status.

    Now excuse me, I just had my new washer and dryer delivered outside the Katzie Indian Band sign. A picture of it there proves to the store it was delivered to a reserve, which means it's pst/gst exempt. My neighbor will find they don't fit into his laundry room, and sell them to me used for $1. Why? Because he's a rich guy.
    Oh, and the $1200 I gave him, that was a private loan that requires interest only payments of $1 a year.

    Ba da bingo.

    This is probably the most ridiculous justification I've ever heard.

    I'm not sure what kind of "shady" you are talking about... but in my opinion, folks who cultivate and distribute illicit narcotics take far more from the system than they ever contribute by consumption tax.

    we don't "cultivate" narcotics here. and i still beg to differ. you think it's all gravy and money trees in the underworld? think of the offshoot legit business's actually supplying what we cultivate. i wonder how much tax is paid from a multi billion dollar business in this province alone.

    You cannot sponsor your own team if you are the rider (or you can't write it off, anyway), and as yet I have been unable to find another self employed person to sponsor who can then sponsor me.

    My racing expenses are income.

    Thank god for Ted Sweet at EMS motorcycles in South Vancouver who pays 105% of my racing expenses, helps me with my groceries at home, will babysit on occasion, and gives me hugs when needed. There isn't a nicer motorcycle philanthropist under the sun.

    25 previous convictions under the MVA.

    Dresses like a gangbanger.

    Unlicensed rider.

    Hides from cops when a warrant is issued for him.

    What's a person to think of this muppet? I know my mind is made up.

    Not someone I would want living next to me. But thanks to Surreys high density housing plans and carriage homes, I do! Yay.
