...and people ask me why I don't go there or any bike week event. Never have, never will. I much prefer "rallies" that are more like family reunions. Lots of parking, no waits at restaurants, open roads and reasonable motel rates. If this makes me a stodgy old biker, than so be it. I'm cool with that.
In a week, I'm heading out with three buddies to do Idaho's Lolo Pass, one of the America's Ten Best MC roads. Its good to know that the posers, carousers and crashers will not be on that road. Just us serious riders.

No one asked....


Out of the 500K that was there, those stats don't look bad at all. I'll take those odds any day.

Glad to know your play it safe and slow lifestyle is working out for you. Enjoy being on the one road in America that there will be no "posers, carousers, and crashers" will be on.

Oh, you do know the rally is over, right?






Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why so is mankind.

If they have zero effect on my life, no. No I don't.

Especially if they come off holier than thou.

Theja1 is wearing his "I'm easily offended" hat today. Its color matches his thin skin. So how is it possible that anything I wrote affected your life, eh theja1?
WARNING! Anyone here who expresses an opinion is now "holier than thou according to theja1. Opine if you dare.

Lol...found nothing offensive in either of your posts, well, except maybe that attempt at humor.

To your question above, nothing you said did. If you read the posts above, you would catch that.

Then why the reactions? C'mon now, fess up. Its bad enough I live in a city full of jerks who have to have their way and have no tolerance for other's opinions or beliefs (remember the post election riots here in Portland?) but I thought we here could get along. Peace bro.

That was really tacky. He voiced his opinion. I think in this country people are still allowed to do that. No the stats are not bad, but some of us prefer to ride and think a little safer than others. That doesn't make us posers or anything else. Just smarter. You seem to have little man syndrome, and think it's your way or the highway. GET OVER YOURSELF. LEARN TO PLAY NICE.

I've been to the Sturgis and Daytona rallies. Never had a problem, saw a wreck, a fight, or really anything bad. Just a bunch of people having fun on, around, and because of motorcycles.

Your post just came off to me as saying only the people who are posers, cause wrecks, and such are there. Very far from the truth.

500k people on bikes for 10 days and a tiny, small fraction of a percent have issues? That sounds like going somewhere where nearly everyone is experienced and responsible. And I've been there...and it is.

I apologize if my post seemed harsh or unfair. I thought you might be tolerant of other people's views. (That's a joke there).

Peace.
