Honest officer, I wasn't texting while driving. I was checking my e-mail.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

Squid hunting is off limits for me. Watch youtube sometimes and see them in action! One on the back wheel walking around on the saddle and the one in front on the front wheel doing a stoppy. Then plastic, bones , and skin all over the hi-way when they connect! I don't trust them.
It's just natural to try to catch someone down the road.
But, I always wave at HDs, gold Wings, Scooters, squids, and bicycles.

Oh, a hint was made about G. Wings being slow riders. There was a fella on a Wing at Deal's Gap that made good money following Sport Bikes and video taping them doing the curves! A couple of times he had to slow to keep from ramming them!
Good riders come on all types of bikes.
Bad ones too.

Heard about this guy. He is one of a few exceptions! Most though won't look in the mirror and if they do, they start to "show you" by trying to "outride" you. And then you pass them. With great haste!
All in all, though, it's all of "us" against the cages.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

I recently came up on a "metric cruiser" chugging down the road. I followed for a bit,(not pushing him by any means!) He suddenly realizes I'm there and wicks it up. I sit back and watch this Fool try to negotiate the curves,dragging cheap chrome,crossing the CENTER line!! Again,I held back waiting to see what the hell was going to happen. Finally, I can't
take it any more,not wanting to witness a crash, We (2-up) pass. This Assbag starts flippin' us off!! Not my fault he can't ride and his mother dresses him funny! I just do NOT get it!

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

I don't chase them but they always seems to be going very slow so i just have to pass them, some time i'll stay behind and laugh at them at the way they drive i wonder they they got there license or do they have any.

Last summer i watch a guy droped his harley twice trying to turn the corner of the street. The smart guy never tried to lean into the curve but tryed to stay straight up so he flipped

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

I'm a habitual 'chaser'. Just can't help myself. Speaking of talented riders on other bikes, I was chased down the pass from Yellowstone back into Cody Wyoming just as the sun was setting. I was on my GS, didn't feel like either one of us was flat-out, but it was becoming necessary to hold the next level up in concentration.

Guy caught up with me at the first light in town....two-up with his wife on an Electra Glide. Damn. I KNOW he had parts scraping the whole way (and I sure didn't)...but what a talented rider (and great guy, too). My riding buddy and I ended up buying them beers that evening.

Perhaps you have a history of making shit up on discussion boards, and consequently a guilty conscience (?).

I've never felt the need.

No worries. I was feeling jumpy this morning.

In fairness, going back and reading my post, I will say it DOES sound remarkably like many other nonsense motorcycle-related stories written every day on motorcycle boards. Rest assured, it wasn't. I still have the gentlemen's e-mail who was riding the HD that day. It was as much a testament to my slowness as his quickness, probably....but he really was holding a speed on that bike I wouldn't have thought possible - especially with a passenger.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

I tend to ride at my own pace which I consider reasonable, opinions vary though. I pass whatever I catch up to at that pace and allow those who are out-pacing me to pass. Don't get me wrong though, I have been enticed on a few occasions to kick it up a notch or two. But I always TRY to keep the speed down as much as possible.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

in general i'm always passing everything i see just at a natural pace. around here it is mostly HD groups on the roads. I'll join up with other riders if they are riding alone, can hold a line, and if they are going at a decent speed. When i see another BMW i'll give them more freedom until i decide i'm getting bored and then i'll go.

If i see a bike ahead of me i'll add some more speed to see what they are riding. Again i like to join up with them if they are alone, feel it is safer with two bikes. if i really like them i sometimes am nice enough to turn off the PIAA lights so i don't blind them . If they suck or seem like they don't want me around, a quick click and rotate and they are dust.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

When out by myself I try not to intrude on other peoples rides so I hang back if I have to and pass when I can. I just hate coming up on the harleys when I'm on a great twisty road, can't see to pass and stuck behind them in 2nd gear , it happened last weekend. Sometimes I just jump on the bike and head up the parkway with no real destination, if I end up behind a bunch that I can't get around(due to curves or just bad riding) I'll just turn around and ride the other way. I do get a laugh when I see a group of harleys coming at me and instead of a wave they turn their heads like you don't exist.

I pass anything that's going slower than I want to go...as longs it's reletively safe - I don't want to be the first cop/paramedic on the scene of my own accident.

IMHO the worst to pass is other bikers. And the worst of the worst, are those Harley riders who ride just about two abreast with a bunch of them in a pack. Going usually at exactly or slightly below the speed limit. I've also been behind a single non-Harley (I think) rider who was so erratic that I was afraid to pass. (I mentioned it in my Cabot Trail trip report.)

I find bikers hardest to pass because they are SO quick and so nimble. When they're riding erratically anything could happen. Sheech, they should all work on being smooth and not jerky in their motions. Just like us BMW riders.

Only if the rider has pony tail and a great ass. Though that criteria has made me red faced a time or 2, it's still hasn't stopped me from chasing down a pony tail with a great ass.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

It is fun to go light to light with a kid in a Mustang like you are having a hard time
keeping up. Then at the last red light before a long stretch of open road you let him get a head start and then zip by with a wave.


Also I was a few car links behind a Harley that was doing about 80 in a 55 zone. I passed two cars and was closing in fast on the Harley when I noticed it was a county cop. Slowed up real fast when I saw him hit his brakes. I thought I was had but he made a left turn and kept going.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

I chase em down. It's one of my addictions

Seems as though everyone has a GS experience. A few weeks ago my riding group was stopped at some roadworks and this BMW suited GS rider comes around us and Parker's himself at the front. I immediately thought this guy is a women's love toy that thinks he can beat us, or he actually can. When the light went green he raced off with me and two others chasing him. He could actually ride the thing, hanging off it like a GP rider. Although we kept up with him there was no way we would have got around him.

I've been known to pull a U-turn to chase down a rider on a classic Honda. To talk, of course. However, I do tend to catch any rider in front of me using the 'safety in numbers' excuse

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

Bike-a-holic, I'll expand on your two thoughts. I've done the same with kids in cars with the fancy wheels and fart cans.
I've noticed that as soon as you close in on a HD they 1st speed up, then if you still close in they always look for a turn off. Not bashing HDs because I own one too, just stating my finds in sunny, rainy, LA, and MS.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

this past weekend, my friend and i are riding on hwy 167 in Dry Prong, Louisiana and we come upon this late 90's goldwing but the rider was wearing a half helmet with HD stuff all over it and had an HD member jacket to some flame throwing & cussing group.

he was loping along so we just went around and waved. well we come through a small town and on the way out, waiting to speed up, this guy flies by me and cuts across my front end.

OK! discipline & restraint? it took everything i had not to just blow by him. it just wasn't worth it. ticket, confrontation, my blood pressure high enough to open my modular helmet. there would have been a certain amount of satisfaction but i did not want to give any opportunity to destroy my trip. literally thought about this thread as the situation was unfolding.....

i guess i'm just getting old.......
we took many opportunities to blaze the roads & curves.....

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

I usually "catch-up" to motorcyclists rather quickly, so hunting them down is not an issue. I'll COAST with others on the road for a while, then assertively blast past, which is like saying "Enough of you...later!". The only bikes I'll sit behind for a while are Dukes/Ducks/M-G/MVs/other BMrs - the philharmonics of motorcycling!

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

Paughco and I once spent a couple of hours playing tag and leap frog with a M3 in California. It was fun and we all respected each other. In Montana one afternoon all of us tired, we came up on a group of 60 or so Harley riders headed to Virginia city form Dixon. Some hills going up. They would not let us in to weave through, nothing. What pricks. So we started getting nasty, passing and crowding in as needed. We were on R bikes then. Finally got to the two "leaders" they were doing the side by side thing looking cool. Went around them. We were crusing about 90 as it was open territory and beautiful. The two harley riders tried to keep up but could not after five or ten minutes. My buddy told me of this keeping up thing, if I had noticed I would have drug them along at 110 to look for smoke when they blew up. A long stretch of be a good motorcyclist happened. Now I am more and more sucked in with what the heck attitude. Something for fun. I especially get ramped up when a large group of Harleys will not let you by in the hills. Humm, I wonder why. It is Thermo Nuclear War then. I have been too paranoid about tickets. They come easy in Washington. I ride like a wimp in this state. Except for a couple of days ago when I low sided on new tires, s..t, those darn things are pesky when 50 feet old, cold and wet. First time in 50 years. New leaf next summer. Burn those tires. Louis, be careful plenty of blank tickets left here for you. Yes, targets of opportunity are welcome.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

I don't chase down anything per say. I tend to ride at a somewhat aggressive pace so usually I am catching up and passing all the time. If someone is ahead of me and I'm not gaining on them - I'm good because they are not bothering me. Also it means they are running at a good clip and now I have to start riding at insane speed to catch them.

Now the big bike groups are another issue. Depending where I am - what road - what town(certain areas too much police patrol)I try to pass as cleanly and quickly as possible. I don't get involved with the group for more than the time it takes to clear them. If they are not making it easy well then I don't worry about hurting their feelings - I just motor through them the best I can.

Have I played with other drivers/riders well sure I have.

Depending on the day and my mojo - most of the time I come out the victor but some days I've played with a few fighter pilots that know only one thing and that is they are going to complete their mission at all cost. Well I'm not on any payroll to ride like it is the Isle of Man TT senior race so on those days I smile in my helmet and say to myself - this is why I'm still alive and well - today the odds were against me.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

Last fall I was headed for Sioux Falls and stopped in Aberdeen for lunch where about 10 Harleys were parked. They were about to leave and I struck up a conversation with one of the gals. As it turns out they were headed to the same destination and I said "maybe I'll catch up with you on the way". As she walked away the girl replied, "just don't try to pass us". I was surprised and let it go without comment. Sure enough, about 100 miles down the road there they were, putting along at 60. This was a secondary road with little traffic and I wasn't about to slow down and smell the mustard so started passing. They would have none of that and the leaders would pull over and hog the road when they saw me coming. I was getting pissed and after two or three of those maneuvers I threw the GT to the right and split that lane between two more of them. They opened up big time but come on, noise and speed aren't necessarily synonymous. I just don't understand that mentality. Do they sit around and plan this crap?

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

I like to let Harley's pass, and then after they get a couple of car lengths in front and get comfortable, I like to blast past them with a wave..... Especially Harleys that have a raked front, and lots of tattoos showing on the arms.....

Bruce,

Reading between the lines here and have thought the same myself, but why is it that somebody riding slower then you (read: you, me, anybody) is slow and tiresome, and anybody riding faster is a lunatic?

I've wondered this often when riding myself. I think that I've come to the conclusion that it has to do with each individuals skill level, perceived skill level (of themselves), coupled with an individuals risk acceptance level.

Speaking of myself, I sometimes get bored if I'm not pushing what I feel to be my limits at least a little bit over the coarse of a ride (unless in a commuting/utility type ride). At the same time I've constantly wondering if I'm going to come into gravel/animal/other around the next turn (unless on the track). I think what makes us feel like somebody else is a lunatic is when they surpass OUR individual riding ability/comfort zone. There have been riders that I'm with that will leave me and look smooth and controlled while doing it leading me to think they really do have more. Other times you can tell somebody is on the brink of disaster however and I wonder if they realize it themselves.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

I've never thought of it this way, but can see the logic in your comments....Examining your thoughts from another sport, snow skiing, everyone at my Mickey-D's coffee club think I am nuts for skiing black slopes at my age of 62 years young, but I am sure that's just because it's outside their comfort range of sport activities.....

Matt:
I'm sure that we all judge what is okay by our own experience. I certainly have limitations and most of the time I know when I'm at those limitations.

I typically don't judge riders as far as they are not as good a rider as me or they are better. If they are in my air space and riding badly then I'm concerned.

And I do use the word insane to describe certain levels of riding - might be me doing something stupid or my perception of another rider doing something crazy. I know there are a lot of riders out there that can ride circles around me - and I know there are riders out there that I can out ride as well.

Most of the time when I go out riding especially when I'm alone - I honestly don't pay attention to other riders - if I come up on one I pass them - if I can't catch up to one - I usually back off and let them go.

I'm always trying to hit the corner perfectly and get my blood pumping a little.

I wish I was a fantastic rider - because I want to be one. My problem is I do think about all the what ifs and of course that just puts the brakes on for me letting it all hang out.

Of course I do... It's an instinctive urge... I can't help it!

It's the same genetic structure in us that makes us love twisties... In fact it comes from the same genome sequence in dogs that make them chase cars!

It's the same genetic structure in us that makes us love twisties... In fact it comes from the same genome sequence in dogs that make them chase cars!

Yep, that sums it up...... Un-curable Hooliganitis.

But we must be aware..... There will always be somebody slower, and always somebody faster than us.

Re: Do You Chase Down Other Motorcycles?

Hey, a bike ahead, shit, wonder what kind it was? He didn't even see me coming. After four weeks in Craig, CO and following Harleys up hills going to Sturgis, sorry guys, that's just how it is.
