if you ain't wearing a helmet cause you think it isn't cool, you have a small and are misplacing your energy trying to make up for it.

I was wearing Gear......They cut it all off at the Scene.....Except for my ICON Asphalt Tech jacket......Which sustained damage from the Concrete Culvert I managed to cross paths with........Nothing like being picked up from the Hospital wearing a gown, holding a wasted Helmet........Lucky to be alive, yet wondering what extent of damage the bike sustained!

Glad you stopped to help...that was great.

That's always something that's in the back of my mind when I ride alone...if i wreck out on the side of the road, will anyone stop to help?

There may be some out there......It's rare to find humanity in people these days....Many people are self absorbed and judgmental .
However , those who ride know where all of this comes from, the meaning of it all!

When I had my wreck I was lucky enough to have been laying in the path of a former army field doctor who stabilized me and made sure I was alright until I left on the life flight. I never got the guys name but I definitely owe him big. I've rolled up on plenty of accidents being passed by people because they have "places to be" with the "someone else will stop" mentality. Hats off to you sir. Nice to hear there's still decent people in society today.

Thumbs up for stopping.

Today after I was done fueling up a guy in an Avalanche with his kid decided to let me into traffic. I saw him talking to his kid and motioning to me. I hope he was giving him good advice about watching out for people on bikes. Or maybe he was calling me a moron. Who knows. About a mile down the road a woman in a f250 pulled out in front of me and actually stopped in my lane. She was crossing into the turning lane and I guess didnt understand how to get all the way into it. I braked and manuvered around her while she made a stupid face, surprised that I was on the road. The more I ride the more convinced I am that people in general are brain damaged and are out to kill me.

I work at that Kroger . Kind of scary to think about but a couple of years ago, there was a motorcyclist killed just across the street from where that happened, he lost control on that curve and went down. If youve ever noticed, there is a cross on the open field near the road. Hope the guy makes a full recovery

I always though that before ANYONE gets a license to drive on four wheels they should have to take the motorcycle safety course and learn on two wheels first. Then, after two years of safe driving they earn the right to license on four wheels.

This.

I've heard it elsewhere before and have shared the idea here and there.

The roads would be a much safer place.
