How often do you give it a squirt and break the rules just for the thrill of it, u know Sh1t$s and giggles?? I know other riders do it, I have seen quite a few more powerful bikes around here with one wheel in the air or fly past cars up near Sassafrass and Olinda over double lines around blind corners with seemingly no thought to their own safety or the law, And I live near a long deep dip (Boronia Rd, the stretch under the new tollway) and I hear bikes winding it out going super quick once a week or so while I'm very late at night while I'm reading in bed. I don't really care if people do it as long as they don't hurt anyone in the process or place people at HIGH risk, and I mean high risk not some bu11$4it "OMG A BLIND KID COULD OF APPEARED ON THE DESERTED ROAD YOU WERE SPEEDING ON WITH A THREE LEGGED KITTEN INFECTED WITH HIV!!!, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?, GO TO JAIL NOW!" thatâ€™s just lame, I mean real risk, like speeding in peak hour near a school when there are people with undeveloped brains who can't make heads or tails of the road or the dangers on it let alone read and right, Mums in mini vans I mean. I'd say about once a week (maybe 2 or 3 times) I give it a bit more then I should (which isn't too much on a 250) and weave up the cars that are slowly getting up to speed after taking off from the lights, Or Iâ€™ll over take someone and speed up to do so, then keep speeding up and over take a few more and lean more then I need to flicking the bike in to the next lane as quick as I can even though I'm around the slow poke holding everyone up, Almost every time I jump on the Eastern fwy off Springvale rd I wind it up as high as it will go before the merging lane gets to the bottom of the hill then slam the brakes on in case there's a cop passing. Obviously I realize its illegal and more dangerous then just waiting for people to get up to speed but I think a little squirt now and then brings you back down to earth (now I keep thinking about going for a squirt if you know what I mean :wink: ). I wouldn't do it if I thought there was a risk of hurting someone and I never do it if there are more then 3 or 4 cars around and I check them all for red and blue lights, last thing I want is a ticket, BUT! They can get me for not indicating, I do that even if it only takes half a second to change lanes, or even if nobody is around. Anyway, what do you do to break free? How often? where? and when? (Okay boys I've set the bait. Finish off your jam donuts and get your ticket writing books, Oh and don't forget to leave your commonsense and any empathy you have at the station, wouldn't want to risk anyone thinking were human..) Give up as little or as much as you like, and feel free to tell stories just to entertain. (that'll throw the fuzz off your back) :wink: Anyway, this could be my last almost 3 AM post, got to start getting out of bed before midday sooner or later. :grin: Sorry for Gramer and spooling misteakes.
