Snowmobile People
« on: January 01, 2014, 03:22:18 PM »
I get that with all of this wretched white stuff you want to fly like an eagle on your snowmobile.  If you do this on the road, please, please stop for the stop signs.....I almost hit you today and that would have been a bummer for both of us, mostly you but I would have felt bad.

Wow,  can't imagine how reckless people are on those.  I rode for years here and in the UP.  The people i rode with stopped for everything.  Trail crossings, stop signs and even when crossing a roadway.

While a serious issue, this post made me laugh.  It reminded me of the idiots who were driving like fools this morning.

Yuppers!  These idiots come out every time we get snow. (Note; I'm NOT talking about folks who enjoy riding and respect other people and property), but as I pulled out of the Temperance post office this morning, I saw some moron S. bound on a snow machine in the middle of the road and he/she was a blur as he/she went past me, throttle open and hiding behind the wind screen. I can only guess how fast he/she was going.  As I proceeded S. bound on Lewis, I saw said moron flipped over in a ditch trying to stand his/ her snow machine back up. It looked to me like they rolled off the snow machine about 25 ft.. Could I have stopped to help? Yes.  Did I , HELL NO! If they're not smart enough to respect me, other people on the road, or property, they got just what they deserved!

  I live on a dead end street, and every time it snows, some
idiot rides his snowmobile up and down our street as fast as
he can, mostly after dark. These machines are low, and hard
to see. Imagine turning onto a street and coming face to face
with one of these thing hurtling towards your car at 35 - 40 mph.
   Besides the lack of safety, I have to listen to this thing roaring
around after 10:00Pm, sometimes until midnight.
   These machines are a nuisance, and unsafe for our densely
populated area.

30-45 mph??? Most new machines do well over 100 mph and they max them out on my road.

     I'm sure the snowmobile nut on my street would go faster, but
it's only a half a mile from the dead end to the intersection, so he
can't really build up more speed. The danger with these things is
that they are much faster than cars on snow, they are very low
to the ground and apparently have no tail light or brake light,
so they are very hard to see after dark, which is when I have
almost run into one on several occasions.
