Very Good Post LDH I really like your perspective
With that said your post seemed to give only 1 perspective about Street Riding you say you must have done over 300,000 street miles and never owned a Car for years well I have probably done much more than 300k and lived in places throughout the World when I only owned a Motorcycle for over a decade before I owned a Car and had to endure rain, snow, black ice etc. too.
What your posts tells me and let me know if I am wrong is you really only used your street riding for “Commuting”
What you will find on this site at least 90%(I can do a Poll to confirm) use their bike for Street and just an overall experience of the Roads on 2 Wheels, traffic avoidance, easy commuting, getting away, easy parking, Bike Run events, the image, Wheelie, the POWER, giving the Girls a RIDE
, and Vacation hauls with some mix of Track of different kinds IF possible.
I am pretty sure many on this site rather see the Scenery on a Motorcycle vs a Car and know the risks or should know them…….bottom line it will have to be a Bad Arse Car(Bikes can do 0-60mph in less than 3sec.) for many to choose that over a Motorcycle on the street but even then when I lane split in traffic and you’re in your fast CAR I am miles ahead riding while you’re stuck in traffic…..Nothing Like 2 Wheels on the Street IMO
Have fun at Laguna an awesome track did a fun fun there once too at an event second to none.
