hi there one and all. i ride a humble 2002 CBR600F4I. i am 41 years old and though at times impulsive and bold, i regard myself as a fairly mature and responsible rider. I don't know about you guys and where you live but down here in Cape Town robot to robot drag racing is a common sight by both bikers and motorists. i find this sort of behaviour very childish and dangerous and I must confess did get caught up in it once or twice. it seems to be addictive. most of the bikers here are speed freaks and have scant regard for their own or the lives of others or the law for that matter. i often have guys trying to engage me into a race. I am keen to know what you guys think about this and whether it also occurs in your own cities. by the way, bikers here see their bikes as extensions of their egos. ever seen a nut in a pathetic yamaha jog trying to beat you on your superbike at a stop light. i say no more. Cheers and safe riding.
