I would like to know when the highway patrols are going to do something about the crotch rockets racing up 161, I-30, and other Dallas freeways!

Watch for motorcyles - sure, every day when they speed through the lanes at over 100 mph endangering the rest of us.

While driving on hwy 67 to Cedar Hill, a Ninja motorcycle cut off at least 4 cars and was doing at least 90 mph, why are they allowed to drive so unsafely ?
The rider couldn't have been over 17, this is getting out of hand, maybe if one were to get run over that would do the trick.
Hitting a cycle at 70 mph is sudden death,that would be a wake up call.

Caqers do not see motorcycles.
They can look right at you, and just do not see you.

For every speed crazy crotch rocket, there are a hundred inattentive, reckless driving, cagers.

Motorcycles that are stopped at a traffic light, get run over by a soccer mom. "Gosh, I didn't her stopped right there in the middle of the road."

When was the last time you heard of a car being run over by a motorcycle?

How many car drivers get killed by motorcycles? I mean, really.

showed that "two-thirds of motorcycle-car crashes occurred when the car driver failed to see the approaching motorcycle and violated the rider's right-of-way

And who is blamed?
The motorcyclist.

Why ride a motorcycle?
Riding is something most people don’t have to do, but rather feel compelled to--for a wide variety of reasons ranging from passion to practicality. One of the most distinct things about riding is that nothing feels quite like a motorcycle; the thrill of being at one with a two-wheeled machine that weighs only a few hundred pounds is one of the purest ways to get from point A to B, and the risks involve sometimes even heighten that enjoyment. Perhaps Robert Pirsig said it best in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: "You’re completely in contact with it all. You’re in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”
