Well, in the Metroplex, there are buses and trains. However, the trains are exceptionally limited (two lines, right now) and the area is very spread out.

Also, each city has its own public transportation system, and they are not interconnected. Some lines cross over, but it's damn near impossible to get from one place to another. And if you're too far from the 'big' cities, there's no service at all.

It's been awhile since I checked, but I think my 12 mile trip to work would take about 45 minutes by public transportation, and I'd still have to drive to the station.

Heck, that doesn't keep felons from driving in Texas:( Down here it's like "drivers license?, we don't need no stinkin' drivers license"

Hope you get back on your feet.

You must be one of those that blaze around on crotch rockets weaving in and out of traffic and doing wheelies down the highway in front of cars thinking that you're a MotoGP champion, huh?

It's plausible, your location is listed as Arkansas.

BTW I think you mean Samuel Colt, not "Samual Colt".

I love the performance. I dont't ride fast on the street. But it's to easy to book track day's. I have done three so far. Here's a pick of me on the green bike at California Speedway.

matt3310,

If you are doing 100mph+ weaving in and out of freeway lanes on your crotchrocket and/or doing wheelies in traffic, then yes, you're an idiot. If you're not, then you're not an idiot.

Save it for the track, or for obscure highway that you KNOW there aren't any traffic around.

I don't care if the hotrodders kill themselves doing stunts, but I do care if they do it around me and probably get my assed killed along with them.

Just because you ride a sport bike and because you ride fast on the street doesnt make you an idiot. I have rode dirtbikes, sportbikes, and harleys and they all have a different application. If you want to ride on long flat roades, ride a cruiser. If you want to jump and rip it up in the dirt, ride a dirtbike. If you want to go fast and turn hard, you ride a sportbike. There is an adrenaline rush that you get from riding like that. Someone who doesnt ride sportbikes doesnt experience this. Ducati riders wouldnt know either because ducatis are slow.

-----------------------------------------------

There's no denying in the rush coming off riding a sportsbike. But if you ride fast in the streets in the middle of traffic, then you are an idiot.

If you weave in and out of traffic either on a street or a freeway full of cars trying to save a few minutes to your destination, then you are an idiot.

If you trying to do 100MPH+ on a freeway with traffic around you, then you are an idiot.

If you try to do wheelies at 80MPH with cars around you then you are an idiot.

I don't know how much plainer I can make my point.

That's why there are tracks available to be used. That's why you need to explore where you live and ride and find roads that are not often used by anyone.

You'd never catch this 52 year-old Harley rider going side by side with my Road King Classic against a Dyna Wide Glide going 115 mph. No, not me.

it's not just the sportbike crowd that rides that way

In the early 90's I was a Harley Owner and rode with lots of Harley guys. In all honesty, they were worse than the sportbike crew I also rode with.

No helmets, shirts were optional, and they loved to drink.

True, the majority of the sportbikers out there are the younger adrenaline crowd but I'm a sportbiker and don't ride that way.

I'm 44 and been riding since I was 9. I ride a rice rocket( Suzuki SV650) and don't ride like an idiot, but it does piss me off when I see others riding like one. Why? Insurance rates, that's why!
As a youngster I learned from my dad and brother, who were much more skilled than I, that it's not how fast you go, it's how you go fast.
Also, what you ride is as much a matter of preference as what you shoot.
