I would imagine from that moronic statement that you also have a long criminal record - Are you really old enough to own a bar? Grow up!

I feel sorry for your potential innocent victim(s)!

If thats all you can bring into the debate I suggest you go elsewhere.

Nothing to do with being old wimmin mate, but as you get older you do get slightly wiser, assuming you live that long, (though I do sometimes wonder WTF I'm doing and should know better).

I have thrashed my bikes with the best of them and had rides on the public roads that would have got me locked up, (in the UK), had I been caught.
I know of certain corners on the German A3 autobahn that can be taken at 160 mph so long as you keep a modicum of throttle on and don't bottle it.

BUT, I have never had your stated attitude, what was it...

.

That just suggests you are pre-pubecent... and a bar owner. So where is this bar?

Time to go to the HU Bar with this B4 we all get banned.

I have this niggling suspicion that Albert ,might just be talking a teensy weensy bit tongue in cheek.

Oh, c'mon now. As per usual, Albert is just trying to drum (troll) - up a bit of business.

No one has a problem here. We probably all think the same way. It's part of the appeal of bikes.

Now this is where there is a problem. You're more or less saying that you'll ride however you want, where you want and don't care who you take with you when you chuck it down the road. Just because you have a daft attitude doesn't mean everyone else rides like an old lady on a scooter. I won't give speeds and locations away but my ride to work, never mind the Sunday blast across the moors, would give the likes of Brunstrom many sleepness nights. Modern sportsbikes are absolute missiles when used in anger (and it's great fun in the right place) but to deliberately endanger the public by taking your attitude is unacceptable.
