Says the person who initially said there wasn't much use for an interpreter... I can't tell you how many times I have ended up waiting longer than the average person because they refuse to see me until the interpreter shows up.

just cause you are deaf does not mean I'll give you a pass on not reading. I said an interpreter is not going to be of much use if your hands are all bandaged up. kinda hard to sign with 2 stumps isn't it? glad to see you're still the ignorant dumbass you were when you first joined.

Witchdoctor's right. When somebody's gotta go, pulling off into a parking lot pretty much tells the others all they need to know. There's very little verbal comunication between riders on any ride I've been on. Between wind, exhaust and confining full-face helmets, voices are pretty hard to distinguish.

If I had to rely on my hands to communicate to the world, I'd wear MotoGp gloves on a freakin' moped.

For deaf riders, if something is so important it has to be signed, it's important enough to pull off and de-glove. Otherwise, ride on.

You don't need to know sign language to comunicate to other riders on a ride. Motorcycling has some universal, easy-to-accomplish signals that we use to communicate. You don't have to flash War and Peace at each other to let everybody know about a pothole.

but your fellow deaf riders may not be able to speak as well as you. futhermore, just how clearly you can speak is gonna make a huge difference on communication with the medical staff. interpreters won't hang out in your room 24/7. they will only come in to translate for doctors rounds and procedure explanations. the general hour to hour stuff with your nurse is gonna have to be one on one interaction. and that will affect commo


btw. drop the e-thug dumbass... I never threatened you. I'm not paniro

100% agreed with the bolded. As for the following paragraph, it's not that simple. We do get confused when someone points down. It comes back to the use of language but hey... let me get back to squidding.

Nope. An interpreter sits outside my door for the ENTIRE hospital visit. I have been in the hospital for as long as 2 weeks. If you are doing this then it's illegal. Sorry.

What does commo mean?

This is what happens when you don't wear boots while riding. You drop the bike and your ankle will get trapped under it. Not a fun feeling when your in the middle of a 2 lane highway screaming for help because you can't get out. Granted I've seen a lot worst for ankle injuries, but this is my first hand experience. This happened in November 9th and almost 6 months later it still ales me. Half time time I'm in a brace and it stars hurting when I do long rides. Why deal with something like that? Just where the gear. Why take a chance?

You and I have different definitions on what e-thug means if you think I'm trying to pull a "Paniero" but FYI... I don't want to insult anybody here. You're the one who started the name calling? Even in this post. I came in here to try and give some logic behind some of the choices that people make. Sometimes those are hard choices that we are forced to make. You just want to call me a ignorant dumbass for doing that and that's fine. I can take it because I generally agree with you. It just isn't always feasible.

I understand there could be confusion between ASL and what the rest of us consider "motorcyclist code". That's something that should be worked out with the rest of your crew before you ride. If you point out a road hazard and the guy behind you thinks "You want an apple? Now? WTF?" - that's something you guys need to figure out.

But don't give me the excuse you have to keep your fingers bare to sign while you ride. If you're "talking" that much pull the over. Shut up, gear up and ride right for 's sake.

Try this... patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time then switch to rubbing your head and patting your tummy. It's harder than it seems. That's how it is with processing language. I KNOW the rider ahead of me is pointing to a hazard but my brain processes it as if he's saying down/now/etc... It takes me a second to process the translation which is... road hazard.

I do NOT communicate with riders while riding. Get that clear. When they attempt to communicate with me, I ignore them and pull over. Period.

WoW....


Ok ftr most of the guys here are 100% right. wear your gear had I not been wearing mine I would most likely be dead or a vegitable. I was hit by someone. I wasnt running from the cops, I wasnt running triple didgits. happens. But I can say the best quote here was *dress for the accident not the ride*
Dont give me bullshit about its to hot. When you see a road crew working in the 100 degree weather are they in shorts? The lawn crew? ANY job that works in the sunlight. The human body is cooled by sweat also. They wear the long sleeves ect to keep the sweat trapped in, thsi in turn cools them.
I hated science but even I recall that from 6th grade.
Now for the deaf guy. I am sorry you are deaf, truly I am. I would hate to have a disability. Now with that being said. stfu. I know several riders that are deaf and if I can get them on here they will tell you to off and stop making excuses. Most people with a handycap dont use it as a crutch, most want to be seen normal, they strive to not be seen as less of a person, so far all I seen you do is argue about rules. and NOT ALL deaf people can talk clear so kudos to you. No one here cares if you need an interpitation or not.
Do you think that when you are rushed to the hospital with blood running or limbs hanging they are going to say oh he is deaf let him sit on the side and die, or the paramedic who is scaping your fingers off the ground to try to sew them back on care that you are deaf. Nope... they only thing that they care about is trying to save your life. I thank for those poeple who put up with selfish who think they are entitled to it.
There that is my .02 Wear gear if not your a squid... boast about it ok.... your still a squid. I have gone without the gear. and I have just been lucky, I dont want to just be lucky. Your bike is not a normal car with 1200 lbs of metal in front of you to pad some of the impact.. You are basically a moving slab of meat. Grow up and act like it.

Ditto.

One of the great joys of motorcycling is listening to the motorcycle work. To be denied that would suck.

That said, wear your gloves. Cagers can still make out the middle finger with gloves on. That's all you really need for sign language out there.

I got tired with arguing about gear with people so long ago. My thing is that I wear all my gear and if someone else doesnt want to wear after I advise them to, then em, dont come crying to me when you are in a hospital bed.


BTW, has the OP even responded in this thread he started?
