Default Dear Sportbike riders, please learn some patience

I was going to pick my wife up from giving horse riding lessons yesterday when a sportbike zipped around me. A couple miles up this two lane road, I come to a stop, where this same guy decided to try to whip around sombody on an S-curve. I could see where he locked up his brakes and the oilspot the bike left on the road. He hit an oncoming SUV and was thrown a 40 or so yards from his bike. The whole front end of the bike was absolutely destroyed. They had to care-flite him to the hospital. This country road was closed for an hour and a half.

If you ride a bike, please be careful, and for the love of God, don't pass when you your're not supposed to.

Why? They make me look bad and make my insurance rates $Texas.

I only wish ill on the ones that bring the harm upon themselves. Especially since I know of a local accident where the stupidass squid almost killed the cager he hit. Needless to say, he was done for.

Patience? More like the idiot needed to learn some damned common sense, but it might be too late for that.

What type of riding does your wife instruct?

I said why, KARMA. He did something stupid, he paid. I'm content to leave it at that.

I do hold a special place in my heart for the hatred of most sport-bike riders.

Western. She teaches children with disabilities. Riding teaches them focus and balance. That goes a long way with some of the problems these kids have.

My wife teaches Dressage and Jumping. But no matter the discipline, the basics are all the same.

I rode sport bikes for about 10 years on the road before I took it to a racetrack. At one point, I owned four motorcycles but no car. I have no sympathy for riders pulling stupid stunts. They pretty much get what they deserve.

Its the cabin fever. I always expect shenanigans-times-100 for the first month or so of no snow.

In my psersonal experiences with most sprt bike riders, they are just ricers that have access to something with way to much power. When I was going to school for motorcycle mechanics we had alot of guys that were into stunting and that stuff, and there was one kid that would go home the same way I did, and everyday, I would see this kid on one wheel going about 90 on these backroads, and about every other day I would see him get pulled over and he would always have this "how dare they pull me over" look on his face. So i guess what I'm saying , as bad as it sounds is I would rather have them take themselves out before they can take some innocent person out because of their stuipidty.

Yeah, my wife can ride english but she doesn't like it as much. She likes to give riding lessons, and trail rides. She has aspirations to open a camp to help at risk youth and people with disabilities in the future. We have a 50-acre plot out in east Texas when we are ready.

Sounds pretty cool. Fifty acres is a decent sized farm. Just remember, a tractor with a cab on it is not a luxury, it is a necessity!

We hold 4 to 6 shows at our farm each year, but we really aren't a competitive barn. Even though we host the shows, our boarders and most of my wife's students don't compete in them. Instead, they help run the show.

Honestly, we are more interested in natural horsemanship and developing a bond between horse and rider. When you see something click between a horse and a person, its pretty cool.
