we are terrorists...we should all be hung!

I am gonna go out on a limb here....I agree with the criticsm of this this story, in that it says "some" bikers. unfortunatly these bikers are gonna be the end for sportbikes, and the end of themselves as well. I dont know how I would feel if I came around a blind corner in my truck, and had one of you all goin under my front wheels. It would most definitly fuck me up for life! Anyway, I am not sure what I want my point to be here, so I will just end it here and say....ride safe

What if Ossama started terrorizing Fox syndicates on a sport bike? Huh? Huh? Pulling wheelies on double yellow lines at 150mph yelling "ALAH AKBAR!!!".

Then we'll see what happens.

At first, I was thinking "oh God, not this shit again". But after getting to the end of the video, you've got to sympathize with them, that's some pretty stupid shit those bikes are pulling.

Know the time and place to speed, that road is definitely not it.

Sorry guys, I'm going to have to side with Fox... their biased reporting aside, they're right.

Some time ago (1985?) just north of Whistler -in the same spot- a trucker had a couple bikes crash head-on into his rigg over the period of 1 summer. The riders died in both incidents. He went on stress-leave after the 2nd incident... and shot himself.

Wow... we have such a good reputation!
In some distant parallel universe, you could substitute Fox for Global or CTV, their 'loop' for the S2S - add citizens reporting riders on the S2S for passing on double yellow among other things, with one certain Squamish RCMP officer who admonishes riders that, if I can quote him directly, "the S2S is not your god damn personal race track"...

of course with the current construction, 150 mph is pure fiction :rolleyes

Is this really Fox News? Throughout this report, they actually stressed that "most" riders ride safely and that it was only a "very few" that were creating the problems.

Good point, ridenrain... it looks like an enforcement issue.

+1. We're definitely not going to make it easier on ourselves by pissing off the other road users. I'm all for fast riding, but not when it endangers other road users.

It is actually a fairly balanced news report. They state several times it is a minority of riders causing the problem and even the sheriff was level headed about the issue.

Anyone here who says they haven't done those exact same things the talking heads are complaining about (myself included) is full-o-crap.

We all have done it and will most likely do it again. The way to avoid the bad publicity is knowing when and where to pull the trigger. We have to make our own decisions about when and where is the proper place to play silly bugger, you had just better be prepared to deal with the consequences; whether it is a ticket, an impounded bike or major hospital time.
