This weekend. Noticed no one copied it from CF. Just another reminder people, this is senseless and there is no need to speed out on the street where cars and guardrails and moutains can kill you.

Guzzler would like you all to visit his house at least once in your life, more if possible.

And I want to go back more than once..

People be careful...211 is not a joke...And contrary to popular demand, the rumble strips are not brake markers. If thats what you want, Summit is not that far away!

My guess would be downhill.... many have issues with decreasing radius.

I really wish more people would do track days instead of having this happen... Its sad and disheartening every time.

Track days wont save you from crashing. We are all human and make mistakes and we error in judgement no matter how long we have been riding and what our skill level is.

Also, we dont know the circumstances surrounding the accident so lets not assume anything. For all we know, a car ran him off the road.

True...Trackdays are just a better controlled enviorment....People crash on the track too...Just look at me!

I posted this up on .com but I think everyone shoudl read this...

Let me say this. P-Luva - Not YOUR FAULT! You did the best you could do. And no one expects more than that. We are all HUMAN! Accidents are exactly what they are - ACCIDENTS! Unfortunately, this is what happens in what we do. I wish them all a speedy recovery. I have gone to 211 with BIG groups and small groups - but alas, I have stayed away from 211 for a while now. We all preach and preach but the person has to want to hear. I dont wish on anyone to see what you saw or go through what you and your friends did. I am no where near a Safety Geat Nazi or anything close to what I do. I try to watch who I ride with and where I ride. I ride my own ride. I am not a beltway baller by any means. Im sure everyone here has heard me and a TON of other people holloring "Go to the track for that sh*t!" But honestly, the track isnt all about speed, its also about learning what your bike can do. My response times are way up and I am learning what my bike can and CANT do.

211 is a good road. People have been taking that road as the scenic route for a long time and they will for a long time. That road is NO JOKE. P-Luva is a good guy and I will vouch for him and ride with him ANY day of the week. He can lead me and my group anywhere...

Everyone - respect your bike and the road your on. You never know EVERYTHING that is happenning. Sometimes things just happen that are outa your control. Take a minute and check yourself! I dont care how long youve been riding, the size of your chicken strips, how many times you have been to 211 or how fast youve taken 211, how fast you made it from 12th and Pennsylvania Ave S.E. to B-More....IT DOESNT MATTER IF YOUR DEAD OR HURT! Does it?!

Not a sermon...Just a tidbit of advise
