Where do they get these Moronic Imbiciles ,that would even think to suggest out loud that kind of CRAP. Could they make it any Stupider,,,

We got some real winners here too...
The Stunt Law -50km over roadside impound $1,500.oo fine
That includes a wheelie or a stoppie or even a burnout, a donut on a 4 wheeler skys the limit..
They got a 60 year old lady passing a transport she was doing 131 in an 80 km.
They also got an unmarked police cruiser for speeding too . Imagine being the cop and telling your boss that the car was impounded ,and you lost your license so some one had better come and pick you up....
Astounding and it is going to get worse...

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Bad decisions make for good stories

Why do you guys bitch about this??? ...A bike takes way more skill to ride than it does to drive a car. You are leaning over going into turns and being buzzed on alchohol the leaning will really make your head wacky. It takes serious clear headedness to brake and concentrate on riding a bike...I don't want some buzzed squid riding a high powered bike around ever. Same goes for cars. But get real why bitch about laws and drinking... I don't give a shit if some dumb ass kills himself riding buzzed but the fact is most these drunk fucks ruin other people lives because they chose to ride or drive buzzed. Just one thought about how devastated I would be losing a family member because of some drunk asswipe chose to ride buzzed make me never question these laws....

We always have a couple of beers with lunch when we ride. So what.

AND smoke weed. Not hydro though, just bush weed. It'd be irresponsible to do that.
