So I suppose you could call this a little rant, but maybe some pople will agree. I am 17 almost 18 and just got a 2003 r6, pretty good condition. My dad has been riding sportbikes and still does for 30 years, and currently has 5 bikes. I am only allowed to ride when he is with me still. I've come to understand why he is doing this, but my buddies don't. To many kids are getting killed on bikes by doing dumb shit. Getting brand new bikes and just trashing them by doing wheelies/stunting in general. What is wrong with people? Every bike you see now that back tire has no tread on it from burning out, shit is broken, dented scratched and wrecked. The first thing that comes out of peoples mouths when you talk about bikes is do you stunt etc etc. Is that all there is with bikes now? My dad is more into road racing/back roads/turns and I took a liking to that. Not sure if its much safer, I suppose its who you ask that question to. Not saying stunting is bad, but why do it to a nice bike? People just trash there bikes and don't even care. I don't think its just me that has noticed this..just curious to see some other peoples views on it.
