Sorta my point as well. I believe you should have med insur. if you have a bike b/c it's just too easy to get hurt on one, :(

If you choose not to have full cov. or theft, THAT'S YOUR OWN DECISION. A stolen bike that wasn't covered by theft doesn't make your rates go up since a claim can't be made on it. The only person that loses is the rider who chose not to insure himself in case of theft or collision. It's his/her fault if they can't ride anymore. As long as you have liability to fix someone elses stuff if you mess it up, that's ok in my book (so my gets fixed if you hit me).

The circumstances behind the need for the help is really irrelevant if you are a true friend or care.

When u give ur money to a bumb, do u ask him how he got there, no u just give out of the bottom of ur heart. Same applies here, the circumstances behind him not being insured is irrelevant to me, if he needs my assistance and I can give it I will.

I hope some of u realize, in most cases when ur hits the concrete, u are at the mercy of someone ELSE to help u out!! U wheelie ur and wreck (a stupid act) are u gonna go home and get ur truck and come back to pick that up, nope ur friends are gonna help u out if they can, no matter how stupid the act...ask rick! no pun rick!

EXACTLY !
Did my earlier post and offer of a "bet" get ignored?
lemme post it up again for the masses to see.

I posted this earlier:

ALSO, I would bet my paycheck, that as long as the PayPal account has been open and on two major internet sites, I'd bet my paycheck there isn't squat in the account.
Thats 3 days of being open and I'd gamble that all the talkers here havent donated a dime.
if you have, good on you, if you havent, oh well, STFU then

So tell me how a fund raiser helps you in any way other than monetarily.

I have taken the proper precautions to take care of myself and my family if something happens to me. As I said earlier, every responsible adult should do the same.

As for the topic at hand, I don't see why any fund raisers can't just be posted in the events section like every other event. I mean, that is what a fund raiser is right?

i was just speaking in general with respect to support, and apparently the situation is, why bombard the board with sticky's about accidents or fundraiser's at all.

Since the fundraiser's are at the BENEFIT of someone in our "family" then a simple post might not been seen and the call for help could be missed, a sticky would keep it front and center.

You're taking what I'm saying wrong. I'm not talking about anyone in particular, nor am I saying that I won't help someone b/c it was their own fault something or another happened (lack o' insur, riding silly, etc).

I'm just stating my opinion on people saying everyone should have a bike with full cov. I don't think you should have to (which you don't). As long as you can pay for my damages if you hit me, I don't care if you choose to risk riding without coverage to fix your stuff if it gets stolen or wrecked.

I'll get back on topic though.

Chris has been known to put his foot down on things he doesn't like. People can ask him for this or that all they want. If he wants to be involved, he will. If he doesn't, he won't. It's pretty simple.

Again, I don't mind saying most of this site consists of younger riders. And with that said, sure, most from this site who go down would LIKELY be younger. What I didn't like is saying most younger riders are uninsured.

Sure, people might mount their plates bad, remove their mirrors, let their reg. or inspec. lapse. That doesn't automatically mean MOST YOUNGER RIDERS here on this site ride without liability insurance.

Maybe you're meaning medical insurance like mentioned above. If so, you might be correct. We'd have to do a poll to find out.

We're probably just arguing scemantics.

And thanks but I'm grown.

I'm up for a fallen riders section and sticky-ing benefit threads when they are posted...

I wouldnt. I'd want yall to leave me the alone. A card would be alright. A fund raiser would embarass me though. That and I dont like being in debt to people. I'd appreciate the effort though.

Thats just me though.
