  • Report raises issue of sportbike ban in USA

    It seems we're not alone in being targeted by ignorant governments:

    I can't see that sort of shit getting up in the US. It would be like World War 3 but with motorbikes. Stupid fucking insurance councils pulling stuff out of their asses to support an agenda.

    Here on the other hand...

      I'd love to see them go after the mid-life crisis Harley buyers. They're the ones costing the insurers big bucks these days.

        At least there it isnt the Government targeting them in this case. Granted a powerful lobby group. At least there they have the AMA to try and counter that influence.

        Interesting to note that they (AMA) have commisioned a report to get updated looks at motorcycle safety.

          They should ban them. Wheres the sense in allowing people to buy vehicles capable of 300kph when there is no reason to be going that fast. Fact is people think they will get away with it, not crash, so the government would have to step in, and stop them. It's like drugs. People know its dangerous but they still do it. That's why drugs are banned, because people cant think for themselves.

                The quality of your posts is not endearing you unto me.

                Take a few steps back and spend a bit more time lurking, reading, and educating yourself before opening your fucking mouth. At the moment I'm thinking it's more used to smoking pole than offering any reasonable, well thought out opinions.

                Now, if you please, shut the fuck up.

                        I can think of 2 reasons to get a bike that fast: Nevada's open speed limits and BECAUSE YOU CAN. What more of a reason do you need ?

                            Funny you should say that, when I was in the states last year visiting a female friend. One of her work colleagues was complaining that he got pulled over on his motorbike, when I enquired as to why (thinking it might be like in Oz, for a random check) he said that the officer pulled him over as there was some concern about carrying a firearm whilst riding.. He had his new shotgun slung across his back..

                            This was the deep south though, guns everywhere..
