Im gonna get a ticket..

Recommended Posts

Its crazy fun riding a dirtbike on the street. You make great time and thers all kind of fun ways to horse around. In fact its so much fun it feels illegal. I havent been ticketed in a decade, but I have a feeling that could change very easily . My DRZ400 is technically legal, but its a far cry from stock and I feel nervous around cops, even when Im behaving. I feel that they somehow know that Ive been bad, making noise, poppin wheelies and stuff. :cry:

Ya it was fun for the guy around here 3 days ago until he DIED doing it. He got chased by the Police, of course he did not stop. The Police called the chase off and a short distance down the road he chased and DIED.......He was having fun too, till the wreck.

I was going to sand pit near my house on my xr200 and the cops arrested me and impounded my bike. The bale was $50. I also had to pay a fine of $1500.

I'm not talking about running from the cops or doing anything illegal either. It's just fun riding a dirtbike on the street, it feels like you are doing something "bad" even though you're not. It adds a certain element of excitement to dual sport riding. :cry:

WHat did he do wrong? :cry:

Gotta agree with you. That feeling is why the mags call bikes like the Duke "Hooligan bikes". :cry:

My favorite is riding through torn up closed streets (after their gone) while the cars turn around. :cry:

Be advised that acting up on a dirt bike as you've described is a primary reason why the general public has a negative view of this sport. And that's conducive to LOSING safe, leagal riding areas. :cry:

The city council has a lot more power than you do.

Lighten up cupcake, your reputation really aint my concern. This isnt some hick town out in the middle of flyover country. Dont be so sensitive fer chrissake. Your riding areas are disappearing because of environmental and liability concerns, not because of some guy on a dualsport bike downtown.

I dunno...If I was a cop I would just leave bikers alone(unless it's your get-away vehicle after robbing a bank). I mean, we are definitely a more skilled driver than the average idiot cager. And a 300lb bike vs a 3000lb car usually means that you can only hurt yourself by driving recklessly. But then again, i'm not a cop, and i'm not much of a hooligan either because i've had a few close calls even while driving cautiously. Maybe they are looking out for our own safety? But hey, I thought that people liked to see wheelies? :cry:

Seriously... how many dual sports are there out there on the road?

Compared to the legions of squids on their crotchrockets we look like saints.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
