I see all over the world students .. workers .. and citizens standing up today !!! demanding change !! .. and using thier power as a groupt to display unrest .. and AMKE the Gov't answer to those it SERVES !!!

belly aching .. that's what it looks like .. and no "for profit" Gov't maching cares one bit about that ..

I see your society not as it was .. but as it is .. and complacency is the rule of the day ..

I'm not trying to be harsh .. or we're better crap .. we are the same .. but not getting the railroad and led into fiscal doom as your economy is .. watch the Daily Show .. then CNN ..

only one your expected to laugh .. the other is the SAME NEWS !!!

in this case .. it reflects to me only a tiny microcosm of the overall issues your facing .. you hear about things everyday .. and no-one seems to be stsanding up .. protests are gone .. and change is now out of your hands ..

no need to get huffy .. lol ..

no .. NOT legal .. DECRIMINALIZED !!! this is part of it .. your believing the things brought to you ..

only one province of all 10 did that .. and ONLY to create a less bottlenecked legal system .. NOT jail people who only smoke a doobie .. or a brotha .. lol .. and this is NOT accptance .. but a less costly and more to the point approach ..

why are underwear not allowed out .. but bathing suit 1/4 the size is ok ?? seriously ..

everything is WAY too uptight ..

not trying to offend .. if anything .. stand up !! I'll accept your comments .. I'll stand behind mine ..

I'm offended by the cops actions .. spitting ISN"T indescent anymore .. nigga just isn;t the "n" word ..

the world can be ok .. and the squids could have gotten the vcorrections by the legit riders .. maybe they only were asking for a simple beeting .. and everyone would still be able to ride ..

F the rights if your not able to respect themm .. those that got it shut down ?? THEY needed street justice .. no problems for the rest to see .. YOU guys should police your own .. if I were there .. and I loved that road .. I'd personally take a moment to say to squids how it should be .. HOPING they get in my face ..

that's me .. but it's now out of hand .. I rant .. but those who are part of it .. need to say .. not me .. I am sorry to hear of a loss of freedoms to ride and be freee .. so much so I'll stand here and take anyone's flack to be able to share my thoughts ..

thanks for listening .. this one sounds WAY out of hand ..

As a local i have to weigh in on this one. I knew one of the 3 people that died on deal's gap, and the guy who a month earlier who died on the cherohala.

There aren't enough police officers in the state to write citations for every stupid action done at deal's gap on a weekend.

Is 20+ law enforcement officers on a 9 mile stretch of road overkill? Yes, especially when there are plenty of other traffic crimes in the local area.

Is there no reason for them to be there? Anyone who rides there more than once through in a year will know the answer to that.

Anyone else ever been passed stupidly? Anyone here seen their maker in the headlights of the car *OR* motorcycle that is oncoming *and* in your lane because they are incapable of properly driving their vehicle? Anyone here been "cock-blocked" by a car or motorcycle refusing to let other traffic go by them, and even resorting to riding in BOTH lanes to ensure that there was NO way that you could ever get by them?

Deal's gap is a road. It was rising in popularity for years before the CROTch was renovated. The renovations and the addition of Ron & Nancy's business there has improved the tourism for the area. Of course there is some "blame" for more riders, but with every group of riders you will get a percentage of squids along with the sane ones.

Sadly this leads to more screwups on the road.

Worse is the whole "them vs us" attitude that bikers have against cars, and cars have against bikers. Unfortunately for the bikers car-owners have the majority and the loudest voice due to brute strength. And they are not shy about calling the law when some butt-pirate flies by them in the middle of a blind corner flipping them the bird on the rev limiter...

3 deaths in one weekend created enough sensationalism to get a political response to a law enforcement problem that arguably needed some attention.

Darryl and Ben and all the rest can belittle lane-crossers and squids until they are blue in the face. They can hang the lane crossing kills signs from now until Jesus returns, and there will still be plenty of those who absolutely refuse to drive properly and intelligently and with common courtesy. The entire MOTORCYCLING community is who needs to correct this behavior through education and, if needed, downright rejection of those who act like idiots on public roads. The motorcycling community as a whole needs to stop responding to idiocy with a wink and a nod and actually start letting the real idiots know that they are not appreciated and that their behavior is going to eventually lead to draconian measures taken against motorcyclists. The state of Maryland is making noises about banning sportbikes....how stupid is that? Will it happen? I doubt it; but if motorcyclists in general continue their trend towards the gangsta/stunta culture...well.....

I hate the fact that I can't ride a favorite local road because of the idiots out there who ruin it for everyone. I hate fact that when I am riding the other people have this idea that I am some sort of speed-addled moron who thinks that deal's gap is my own personal racetrack. I hate the fact that my bike is now a prime target for law enforcement if i ride on deal's gap because of idiots.

But until things calm down, and until people STOP screwing around so much that the law enforcement is all over us, we are going to be targets if our speed exceeds the limit by 1mph. Or if hte lean angle is "excessive". Or whatever else is seen as an excuse to pull us over.

Cussing the police because they are doing what their bosses tell them to do is ignorance. Especially since their bosses are trying to make political brownie points by making an "Example" to appease the dumb masses who got pissed off by a few total idiots who treat the public highways like their own personal "I want to beat Rossi" training grounds.

BIGZXDADDY....I agree with ya. VA has gone over the top with there traffic laws. We are in Danville, VA quite a bit. If we are going to race, we always make sure that we have come back across the NC state lines before we pull the trigger. About 18 of us rode the bikes up to VIR in Danville, Va this past weekend for the big race. Seen quite a few law enforcement. Never had a problem in VA yet and I always have a radar detector on me when going through VA.

YOu guys can post or think what you may but Slug and myself both live here and it appears we both see it about the same way... It's a shame but it's the 95/5 rule in effect.
