I don't teach anything to anyone courier. LOL. I barely know how to keep my bike upright as it is. I was being sarcastic. Just wanted to try to make him feel better for being such a whiny ass

3 weeks ago neighbors put gravel in the dirt alley to fill pot holes. OP drops bike in gravel and posts a note on neighbor's door telling them to remove the gravel and that they need to pay for damages or else he will sue them for illegal dumping of gravel, damages, and trauma he is/has suffered because now he is afraid to ride his motorcycle.

So what do you expect out of all of this? Do you expect that the owners who dumped the gravel to pay up for your bike being damaged and to pay for your therapy since you're so traumatized?

They did nothing constructive so complaint already filed.
I was not home when they dumped the gravel.

Someone else will fall on that gravel. Someone coming in at a slight turn will slide and low side. One does not expect 6" of loose fill gravel at the entrance to an alley. They city does not allow that. They rake it to look smooth which is deceptive as it is not a solid surface but they make it look smooth and solid.
If you begin to execute a turn at any speed without surveying the impending conditions and compensating for changing road surfaces you are setting yourself up for a bad day.

Seek
Evaluate
Execute

In smaller words, turn your farkin' head and look where you are going.

As for your whines about gravel, as a person who has been running all types of bikes, from 250's up to and including 800 pound Harleys and Goldwings up and down a 1/4 mile of potholed pit run surface road for thirty years I will withhold my comments on what a qualified rider can do.

But thanks for opening the door for a great popcorn read.

I recommend Pennzoil. Please buy a Nissan leaf and discontinue your internet service.
Never thought I would agree with Ray either... Bold part really made me laugh and hurt, thx! =)

You know, I was banned twice for far less than what is in this thread. Where are the white knight mods now? Too bad OP has "..guy" in his name...

When you use words like trauma and tradegy over dumping you bike at 5 mph on a pillow of gravel, expect this.

How far did you make it down the alley before you took a digger in the gravel?

Alleys are not part of the public infrastructure. The city does not maintain alley ways and will not take responsibility for any damages due to poor and/or lack of maintenance. This is not a flame, only the truth. The maintenance of alley ways is up to the property owners.

Typical of people not there, people not knowing what that gravel is like anbd not even reading early posts where I clearly said it was illegal, alley was public and no permit, etc, etc, etc.

Don't bother responding. I won't read them and I'll delete my eariler posts since this thread when nowhere.
Good God son, I started in the dirt 50 yrs ago. We raced (when mom wasn't looking, up and down the gravel road that connected hwy 12 with Jackson Hwy. Going one way there was a left turn, (damn learned how to drift) then back the other way. Jesus H. Christ, better get yourself a Pris. PS heard their faster than bikes anyway and have 4 wheels...AJ

I'm sure there are plenty of lawyers in Seattle. It appears you have the internet although your use of Google is questionable. Add those two up and I'm fairly sure you can find a lawyer.

It was gravel before and it's gravel now.....which means an unimproved alley which means the city doesn't care about it. All they will do from your complaint is fine them and make them purchase a permit.

There's a difference between "pit-run" gravel, and what appears to have been placed in the alley. Pit-run gravel has lots of "fines" in it, that allow it to be packed down and become stable. Gravel that is comprised only of rounded stones doesn't pack down and, therefore, remains unstable. We recently laid down gravel comprised of rounded stones around our walkways, and it's even difficult to walk on it. When you attempt to drive a wheeled device, such as a wheelbarrow, over the stones, they just push to the side.

It seems that the wrong type of gravel was installed, so don't be too hard on the OP.
