Sport-bike racing: Assault on our roadways

There are 73 comments on the El Paso Times story from Apr 6, 2009, titled Sport-bike racing: Assault on our roadways. In it, El Paso Times reports that:

Sport-bike racing on El Paso roadways has surpassed the regular definition of "dangerous." It's to the point that daredevils on bikes nicknamed "crotch rockets" are an assault upon others on the roads.

Dr. B and Truthurts.

Where's your response? Will you run over motorcycle police officers too? How about those who escort the funerals of our fallen heroes?

How about an answer.

What is the point of all this? The media will exagerate and blow any context out of proportion regardless of the issue to gain readers. As a biker I can only say, there are good ones, there are bad ones. Just like car drivers, who are care less and race, drive drunk, are on cellphones. The only thing one can do is avoid these type of drivers if at all possible. Let the law, deal with those that are caught. We share the road with all types of people. One thing I can comment on is, you can never compare a 450 lb bike, to a ton of metal. The car will always win. for those who threat the safety of motorcycle drivers, specially publicly like on this post, all I can say, you are incriminating yourself if such an incident should occur. By the way, I work for El Paso PD.

Ok I cant help but to respond to this, I've taken the bait. First off I am a sportbike rider (crotch rocket) in El Paso, and Im a Soldier I do hang out with the sportbike groups here. I can tell you all there are 2 reasons for the problems of speed the first is the Army, we are soo repressed by uncle sam and forced to comply with the rules that sometimes we need to let out some stress, for some of us it helps to speed on our bikes, if we die, oh well, its better than another deployment to iraq. The second problem is the 915Ryders, a motorcycle gang here that is the majority of the problem (every sunday on I10 and 54)they are mostly kids and are very inexperianced just trying to be cool.

You must remember that a lot of motorcycle riders carry hand guns. When you use your vehicle as a deadly force, here in wv we can reciprocate with deadly force. Be very careful mr. F350 superduty hero. I bet that big truck is not bullet proof!

This is typical mentality from someone who is unable to spell correctly. I bet you own a Harley. You have admitted to everyone here that you will not hesitate to harm another person because you don't like the type of bike they ride. You are a POS and sorry excuse for a human being.

All I read is crying. You want to roll by me on I-10 at 90? You talk about respect. It was the behaviour of these care-less individuals that compels me to take the initiative of self preservation.

Florida, his comments are not impressive, he JOINED not drafted and knew what to expect.

That's just a feeble excuse for unsafe conduct and a bit of machismo talk to impress the gullible. He might be saying he is not afraid, trust me, one shot fired and he remembered why he has to duck.
