Road racing?

Wait.. Let me get this straight

You guys race on public roads?

Isn't that dangerous lol or illegal?
If you crash it would be bad and isn't there rules against racing vehicles on public roads.

I crashed my car (Why I have a bike now!!!!11) on the road whilst racing and the insurance didn't cover me and the cops were angry.

I wont do it again, I'm much safer now I have my bike!

Yes. It's called road racing. You race on the road.
