Also, what do you have against DRZ400E's?

Well put GA426, I was thinking along those same lines. Yamakazi shares a funny story and somebody has to come along and spoil the fun, it just pissed me off.

I agree with whoever said if I was being chased by someone I'd never know it. As Yamakaze knows, when I ride I ride pretty much WFO. If someone is chasing me and they're gonna catch me, they'll have to be pretty quick.

I sincerely appreciate you folks that jumped in and came to my defense. A couple of you were quite colorful to say the least. I can’t believe I’m about to agree with Lewichris, but we are all brothers here, and we will always have disagreements and some of them will lead to heated discussions, however we need to remember that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and attacking someone by telling them to FO&D or other vulgar verb age is not the way to resolve differences. That goes for myself as well.
This has been really cool, who would have thought that this post would have generated this may responses, Almost caught up with TAFFY….

Sometimes you have to up the ante to enjoy life. Anyone who gets on the back of a bike knows this. My brother did almost the same thing. He was riding by himself, and blowing off some steam and stopped to releive himself. Up roars a ranger, very irate, and asks my bro what he thinks he is doing. Being puzzeled and thinking his current activity obvious he just looks at the ranger. The ranger said "Ive been trying to catch you for an hour!". "Where did you learn to ride!" and here have this ticket! my brother was shocked indeed. He had no idea this guy was trying to catch him. He was just pounding down trails we grew up on and airing out his YZ. Moral, were all just folks and sometimes we dont understand one another.

I enjoyed the stories YAMAKAZI and 696!
This thread must have pegged the meter for views and posts in the last 48 hours. Taffy's threads take months to get this many posts.

You're right, enforce the issues equally. That is unless you are the one who is breaking them and you are the one who is going to get the ticket. Then it must be O.K. to run from the cops.

I knew that blowing off the Trail Patrol was the wrong thing to do. I completely agree with enforcement but come on, lets enforce the issues equally, that's what this was all about.

Yeah, I could also use some help wet-sanding some walls down in the basement!
