I wouldn't say he's ignorant so much as pedantic and deceptive: if he were as concerned about public welfare as he claims, he would have called for the ban of Corvettes in that column, as well.



And he mostly skirts the real point, which is stupid behavior.



That said, I'm sure there's a large percentage of the general public who share Mr. Easterbrook's opinion of motorcycles and motorcyclists (although I'm not sure how you realistically design a motorcycle with "regard to the safety of riders" as he states it without turning it into a car.)



P.S. When did reckless driving become road rage?

"No, I believe he is saying owning and operating a 200mph motor vehicle on public roads is stupid behavior."



But, conveniently, he doesn't say that owning and operating an automobile capable of nearly 200mph (Corvette Z06) is also stupid behavior. The lady doth protest too much, methinks.



"I think he is quite right."



You're certainly entitled to this opinion.
