You know he'd probably have not gotten arrested if he had just found some open road but he's out on a terror ride threw traffic collecting evidence for the police. Now I'm not a total kill joy but I'd hate to think of my grandkids in a small car or convertiable cutting him off. Come to think of it I really don't want him behind me in traffic either.

Judge should sentence him to 50,000 miles on a moped that might get his attention.

LOL.. Probably not...

They said the rider was unlicensed, uninsured and believed to be a 25-year-old man with 25 previous infractions.

I've been to Victoria Canada a few times and it's one of my all-time favorite places to visit. I went up there on my honeymoon. We got out on that highway and saw the speed limit signs saying 80, and I was like, "COOL!!!" So I was cruising along and couldn't figure out why I was passing everyone until I thought, "DUH!!! Kilometers!" Slowing back down to 50 sucked.

Chuck Yeager

I believe it was Chuck Yeager (famous test pilot . . . first to break the sound barrier in the X-1) that once said "There are old pilots and bold pilots, but no old, bold pilots. I think this holds true for motorcyclists also.

If that rider doesn't change his ways then one day, some poor soul will be scraping whats left of him off the road!

Yep, It seems mortality just don't sink in untill somewhere around 30 and "you don't know sh*t until you're forty". Not sure where I got that quote, but I like it.
