Arturo, do you really think it keeps them in check? I think people are going to ride the way they are going to ride regardless of what they see on a message board.

Hey just got another idea for a post.

OH and I don't read most of the down rider threads unless there is a member's user name in the title. Just sucks that everytime you open GD, you have to search down through 5 wreck threads to find a MOTO-RELATED thread.... Seems to be getting worse and worse to...
if the masses didn't want to see those threads, they wouldn't be reading to them. the only reason they're all over the first page is because everyone keeps replying to them.

It's because its dirty laundry. Remember the song people love it when people lose. It's sad really. Just like when you see a wreck on the road everybody slows down to look at it. Another reason there should be another forum for all the bloodlusting losers that get off on that .

Some n00bs on HI wanted to create a STOLEN CAR subforum, and for the same reason, I don't think it would be good for MH to isolate fallen rider threads into a subforum that likely nobody will visit. And that doesn't encourage people, like me, into motorcycle ownership. While it's a reality ( happens), it doesn't have to be promoted.

Just make a thread, sticky/close it and PM mods to add names of fallen MH riders i POST #1 and non-MH riders in POST#2...if it really needs to be outlined. Maybe in SAFETY CORNER just as a reminder to the ngrs who think riding does not require any safety consideration.

i agree with jet. its just not neccessary to put bad energy into the scene. no disrespect at all to riders who go down and get hurt or worse...but i also cant help but shrug it off when i hear about some guy that went down at 140 with no helmet in a tshirt and shorts...drunk. helmet jacket gloves. minimum. even if your just running to the store. that aside there should definitely be a seperate section for this. you will know if you need to look in there.

also tired of reading those posts/threads. there are two kinds of riders in this world, those who have been down and those who are going to go down.
it's just a normal part of being on a bike. i mean no disrespect to those who have lost a loved one but it's a risk we all take and know about every time we hit that start button and take off.

Well that and other things, too. It's not falling or dying that's so bad. It's the fact that your death is out of your hands...more than likely it's someone else's mistake in a car that will hurt a bike rider or end a biker's life. That's not really an opinion, but a matter of fact, statistically speaking.
