guy was an absolute ****ing moron. Its moves like this that make cagers HATE bikers. Bikers seem to think that any square foot of real estate their bike fits into is fair game for passing someone. WRONG.

that dude was a douchecanoe. but the safety rule is, driver wears lid so he doesnt take a rock/bug/debris to the eye and crash. if you have 1 lid, the driver always wears it. but I wouldn't be riding with a passenger if they had no gear, so it's a mute point.

my rule is..........you have money to buy gear then you have money to buy a bike!!!!!
not a fan of the whole "two-up" thing.
I guess 1 reason is the bike is cryin with just my fat azz on it. Can only imagine what she would do if I threw some bisch on the back too!

I don't get that either if I ever give someone ride and I have only one helmet I let them wear it. I couldn't live with myself if they died and I lived. So I would rather die I know where I am going.

That 45N / beltway 8 overpass gives me the heebee jeebies.. The family jewels duck and cover every time.
Hopefully that young lady has a couple of brothers that will make that idiot give much thought into protecting his head.

I had to do a detour riding to work one day because of numerous emergency vehicles on and below one of the ramps leading from Central Expressway to the Bush Turnpike (another 60' high thing like the one in the OP.) I read later that another rider went off the ramp and died on the ground below. My gf has made me promise several times to not push it going on these ramps. NOT a place to get a knee down, eh?

I am terrified of ramps (high ones at least). One day I was getting on the tollway and in the middle of the the turn of the ramp, there was a Huge trash can rolling around on the road! I thought to myself, what if I ever crash on one of these ramps and fall wayyyy down there on the service road. Yikes!

the safety rule is, gramper, the operator ALWAYS wears the lid. it's the only way to ensure that a little problem doesn't distract the operator and hurt both people. it's common sense.

and where again did you read that a soul exists? didn't someone just make that up for selling music and movie tickets? I need you to show your work on this one.

Actually, most of your passengers are mute (they prefer that) that is the real point!


Logic 101 for Dummies:

One cannot prove the existence of a "soul". It is based on faith, much like the bogey man and tooth fairy. If you don't believe, it doesn't exist.
Time to start a different thread for this one.

"Soles" on the other hand do exist, ask any fisherman.

I have a soul... when I'm asleep, it comes out of me and goes to strip bars, gets drunk (blitzed), has unprotected with strangers, and then goes cow tipping. When I wake in the morning, I feel half as good as I did the day before... it's always a Monday... everyday. Plus the tooth fairy, boogey man, easter bunny, santa, and the seven dwarfs... party with me on the daily. Just last night, we killed a hobo, named Keebler Elf... see, souls do exsist! lol!!


Btw, what's the word on that ladies condition? Anyone know?
