You describe this as a "race"?! I think you are unclear on the definition of the word. Onramps are the best place to open the throttle on your bike WFO, the least likely place to get in trouble for doing so, and you should take advantage whenever you can, I do. There entire purpose is to accelerate! It is not our fault that most are much too long for the rate of acceleration most of our bikes capable of and we might have to brake a bit when we finally have to merge?!

Pete for the love of GOD please get over here and hold a "merging on an onramp" seminar for all the fucking retarded drivers in Spokane.

I love the assholes that pull all the way to the end of the merge lane and stop waiting for a break in traffic. Hey you fucking retard the merge ramp is for getting up to speed not stopping and waiting!!!

I'd rather have floor happy cagers than those who use the wrong pedal on entry ramps.

Trade you some old people for some ricers

Do not ever, ever go to Oklahoma. Not that anyone seriously considers going there unless they have to but driving around OKC and getting on the freeway is a test of quick reflexes for those of us from the left coast. People actually do stop at the top of onramps there. It's fucking normal. First time I was trying to get on the freeway I'm half looking ahead, half looking over my shoulder when the asshole in front of me stopped like it was a traffic light right at the merge point. Holy sheeit! Everyone there does that.

I had some fuck do something similar after a bike night a couple weeks back. It was on a residential street and was dark out. I rode along side them and accelerated a bit, but he thought going passed me was "winning the race" and one of his chick passengers waved bye to me. I'm sorry, but a race starts from a complete stop to a designated finish line, not just because you hit the gas and moved passed me, you're in a cage, and I'm not fucking stupid enough to haul ass on a road I'm not familiar with in the dark.

I race cars and used to play around with riders on the high way, but I knew full well I couldn't keep up with them and they'd eventually blow passed me. It's innocent fun, but people who think they can beat bikes are stupid, the power to weight ratio is IMMENSE!

And about people who don't know how to merge, god people in Seattle are fucking retarded. I hate being stuck behind people who do a consistent speed that is well BELOW the speed of traffic and try to merge holding up EVERYONE behind them.

Oh, and hey man, I brought dignity back to the PNW yesterday. Murdered-out C6 base model 'Vette wanted to play (even had fake Z badges!). Was on the Duc so I had the torque to keep it real at freeway speeds (R6 wouldn't do much until 80mph). Guy was all fresh, pounding that gas and sneaking between cars to make position. Well, once a lane opened up I was all "see ya!" Dropped to third, gave it some stick, popped out in front and set up for the corners. Last I saw of Mr. Vette was his nose dive while he braked for no reason at corner entry. I pushed over, dragged toe, and let that mighty twin roar my way around the crossover ramps. by the time I had merged onto the next freeway, Dudebromeister was nowhere to be seen. Didn't catch sight of him again until I was slowing down for my exit.

I brought us a "win," baby. That's just how I roll.
