i remember riding in the bed of my moms truck from willis to new braunfels. we blew up a few inner tubes and made a game out of trying to keep from flying out. fun fun. now though, not so much. speeds are still the same, but now that I am a parent and I realize how precious life is it is not something i want to risk.

He did, but that was the only contributing post- the rest was nonsense, hence my statement. Moe should have known better because he complains about that (threads not staying on topic).

Do we wear gear? We take the risk by riding the MC, but do all we can to avoid a tragedy. If having everyone inside belted up is in any way an option, do it. Saving $50 on gas is NOT worth risking the lives of 8-10 people.

you're probably right, but sometimes you gotta live a little.

I don't consider a very uncomfortable 2-4 hour ride living a little, especially not at the risk of dying a lot :/:

gear doesnt make you bullet proof. you fall off taht bike at hwy speeds, youre gonna get hurt badly, possibly killed. belting people up in teh bed of a truck is a very bad idea.

Speaking of living a little, this reminded me of some funny shife.

In college four of us drove from Kerrville to San Antonio and partied all night. We were in a single cab truck, so when it was time to head home my buddy and I jumped in the bed and with the other two guys in the cab we took of on the hour long trip home.

We were pretty faded and about half way I decided it was time to take a . So I crouched down facing out the back of the truck and tried to over the bed.

At about 70 mph.

It was like throwing a glass of into a wind tunnel.

Tell your buddies not to do this.

That's probably why I would never suggest it.

Nope, just one from high school. I'm not sure what spurred the question since I never implied this thogh. I'm sure if everyone I knew that has been in a car accident had someone in the bed of their pickup than yes I would know a lot of folks who died due to riding in the bed. If everybody ignored the risk I'm sure we would hear of a lot more deaths.

I dunno. I-10 to SA is a pretty boring ride. Sitting in the bed of the truck with a couple friends, the wind blowing (remember about the ) watching the countryside roll by is pretty fun for me - worth the risk IMO.

You won't be able to hear after three hours in the back of a truck on the interstate tho.

Well do it your way, there's a very low chance that I know any of them anyways. Have them sign waivers before you leave also. Speed.

lol. isnt that the "Risk" youre talking about? as i said, we used to ride in the bed of trucks all the time, everyone did. have we really come to the point in our lives where we're afraid of our own shadows?

anywho, i say go for it, if they can stand it that long. i rode in the bed of a truck from austin to houston and it got pretty annoying and uncomfortable after the first hour.
