This thread was last serious days ago. Poking fun at pirates and power rangers is just that... fun. You made some good points Brain, speed kills. That still doesn't excuse bullshit arguments about whiplash, reduced vision, impaired hearing, or that one guy who totally died going 15mph because he was wearing a helmet. I disagree with people who think helmets should not be mandatory, but I understand their position. I can't seriously converse with people who dispute a helmet's effectiveness, they might as well be living on another planet.

I guess I missed the post where he specifically said the magic bandannas that hang out of the pockets of v-twin riders.

The only bandannas that I've seen on patch holders are the ones on their heads. The only thing hanging has been their braid from the handle bar.

Since the sentence structure is so close to another revolting video, I will pass this bit of effluence without searching. I don't need to unsee that.

There's a guy that died at 0mph. He wasn't wearing a helmet and at a stop light he fell over on his motorcycle. His head struck a curb and he had a concussion then later died.

Does it mean the same thing as like a gang sign from the bloods, crips, or MS13? To me I just see something to blow my nose with or wipe off my forehead on a hot day.

You ever check those braids out? They have quick releases. Some of them have lead weights, are cage thumpers. Someone gets too close, cuts them off, they get a nice quarter size dent in their pretty little Lexus for their mistake.

Not saying I do it, I don't have those on my bike, but that's what they are for.

Yeah, something like that. It's not likely they will be aggressive unless screwed with, but it's probably a good idea to just throw them a low deuce to be respectful and keep on down the road. Another part of riding safety...

Why is this a good idea? What if I didn't notice them pass, and they notice me not throwing them a low deuce, does this turn the situation bad?

Well, respect is everything in the 3 patch world. Even if you disagree with what they do, who they are, or if they don't return the gesture, it doesn't hurt.

I throw the deuce to everyone. Don't care what they're riding. I try to be a nice guy on the road.

really, the thing that I find most disturbing about that video (aside from the whole concept of the thing), is that once the jar breaks, the guy doesn't even flinch...
