Dude.....you can't go threatening to sue people because you don't know how to ride on gravel.

I started laughing just at the title of this thread. "illegal gravel" ohhh noes. The gravel should be deported.

Then I clicked on it, and it continued to deliver. I'm assuming you don't ride much out of the city?

I've pulled off on soft gravel shoulders and into tiny gas stations with gravel drives. Shit ain't that hard to ride on. Man the fuck up.

Are you going to sue the state when you bin it in a turn because the road wasn't sticky enough to keep up with you?

If you're sure they didn't get a permit call Seattle code enforcement Tuesday morning. Your damages aren't enough for a lawyer to deal with. After the city deals with the gravel it's off to small claims court for you.

I do think you should learn to ride dirt though. If the gravel has been there since 8/23 then you know it's there and ride accordingly. No front brake below 5mph or off the pavement. That's asking for an asphalt kiss.

Lololol sounds like you and the ducati riding cry baby need to team up and file a class action lawsuit for crashing your motorcycles due to inexperience and a lack of personal responsibility lmao!!!!



Anyways.... good luck wasting your time trying to complain and sue somebody for a couple hundred bucks. Nobody is going to get in trouble for laying gravel based on a complaint from an immature inexperienced disgruntled guy that dropped his motorcycle. How are you going to prove it was said neighbor that laid the gravel? Do you happen to have pictures? Your word vs. theirs will not hold up in court. Loser. Good thing I don't live near you.

They did it WITHOUT A PERMIT.

Tonight going 5mpg I hit a hidden pocket of really soft stuff and down it went because it forced the wheel to the right. You see before the main pocket it was getting soft then WHAM! into a deep depression.

Police said they can't do anything because I dropped my bike. They are not involved with the illegal surface. They were nice and said they can't file a report without giving me a ticket. They said to deal with it with the city.

I have filed a city complaint.

Wow 5mpg? You must have been going like 400 mph to be burning that much fuel. If you were indeed going 5mph I doubt there would be a trail from your front tire locking up. Also, in those pics I can see its actually dirt under the gravel and there appears to be weeds growing up through the gravel from the dirt below so in my opinion it looks like your neighbors are actually trying to improve the roadway. You should appreciate their concern for the community and the personal sacrifice they have made to improve your road.

hey brandocommand, I'm in lynnwood. We should get together and go down to this alley. Take our bikes up and down the alley a few times, and then charge him an "instructional fee" for showing him how to ride on gravel. LOL.

I'm surprised no one has asked the obvious question...... If you know the gravel is there, and you know that it's "questionable" at best, why didn't you slow down to an appropriate speed, take your foot off the rearsets and let them hover just above the ground.... that way, IF something happens at least you can catch yourself before you dump the damn bike over.

If you are so concerned about the illegal nature of the dumping of gravel then why didn't you report it on the 23rd while they were dumping said gravel?

Oh that's right because you are a cry baby and are upset about dropping your bike and want to blame it on someone other than yourself.

Tough room here.

Get the city to sight them for doing the gravel without the permit, get a quote from a licensed contractor to fix it properly and then sue them in small claims for the damage to your bike and to repair the the street.

I could see being pissed and possibly asking for some help with fixing your bike until you pull trauma out of your ass. Now I think you're a whiny backpack full of tears with a broken zipper.
You are the problem with America. Why would you choose to ride a motorcycle in the first place? Who do you intend to sue when you do the same thing in the oily bit at a stoplight?
I recommend Pennzoil. Please buy a Nissan leaf and discontinue your internet service.

Two things:
1.)
Top up before your "instructional" ride. At 5mpg, you'll definitely run out of fuel and someone will have to go get you some.
2.)
You shouldn't be instructing anyone how to ride in gravel. Evidence of this above.
