Rider down tonight

Happened at S dairy Ashford and Huntington View. He and a car went head to head according to the witness. He was going straight and the car going his opposite direction was turning left at the intersection. He thought turning left would avoid the car and the collision was unavoidable. He got transported to the hospital was told that he will be okay.
No helmet and he ended on top of the car. He was lucky to be alive.

Harley riders have developed a thicker skull through years of believing they don't need helmets.

Perhaps it's this mentality that keeps Harley riders from showing up to meet and greets and/or rides. Spitting out this type of stereotypical B.S. does nothing but place a stigma towards you, this forum, and this community. Honestly, that's why I've stopped coming around.

It's just about the same as saying that all sports bike riders only ride in tennis shoes, pops wheelies on the highway, and peel out at stoplights.

Obviously, you either didn't read my post or only read what you wanted to read. Thanks for proving my point for me...

Well, I've asked a few Harley riders why they choose not to wear helmets (or other gear for that matter) and their usual response is that you only need that stuff if you ride fast. I see plenty of cruiser guys wearing full gear and I see lots of sportbike guys wearing t-shirts and tennis shoes. Is it your right to not wear gear? Absolutely. Do I have the right to say something when someone who doesn't wear gear gets hurt in an accident were gear would mean the difference between an ambulance ride or walking away? Absolutely. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to see ANY fellow rider get hurt from an accident and I hope this guy heals up quick.

Most definitely. It's just frustrating to see these things, whether it be cruiser or sportbike, and think that if they had only been wearing some kind of protection maybe their injuries would need only some bandages and aspirin and not a hospital visit.

ok so lemme see lets take your points off your chest for ya, you quoted Chuckster first about the comment about the thick skull and said its this mentality(from us) that keeps hardly riders from coming here and showing up to meet and greets, ok lets disabuse you of that notion, I did it the wrong way before ok I'll take that but the fact of the matter is that most hardly riders have an attitude against everything that isn't hardly " if you don't ride a Harley , you don't ride " is something I have been hearing from the douche bags that ride Harleys for over 30 years, they as a general rule still hold that attitude specially the weekend warriors and are proud to shove it down everyone's throat( had a run in last week at the gas station some asshat told me to move my piece of so he could fill his real bike (HD)), so if in general it is the attitude projected by so many that ride Harley's and started before most of us were involved with street bikes, how is it that that is the impetus to keep Harley riders from coming here or to the M&G's, its not its plain pure bike prejudice mostly from the Harley riders, but on occasion from the sport bikers that are tired of hearing how good Harleys are and how the sport bikes and riders suck so yea we pick back. I have had Harley riders even tell me to my face that I ride pretty good for a crotch rocket rider. all I said was thanx. so yea again with the smart yea riiiiight its all my fault, ya know what embrace the suck and deal with it facts are facts, hoggly riders are the most prejudiced asshats as a generalization I know against what we ride, your point was rubbed right the fukk off because you point was invalid to begin with.

Also sorry to hear about the rider it sux for anyone to have a collision, glad he did get hurt too bad

I've been told that single headlight is extremely dangerous cause they think it's just a light down the road (street light, etc). Then also told later that dual headlights are horrible because it looks like a car which is much further down the road.
Same person. I think he just needs to pay more attention.
