Wait a second longride. I thought that it was only middleaged guys on Harleys that crashed like this.



Still, I would really have liked seeing Keanu Reeves "fall off his motorbike" while riding down the road. Too many goofballs will do that. Or was it from reading all those reviews for "Speed 2"?

I seem to remember something about Keanu Reeves crashing while doing a stunt for some movie. Also, if he 'nearly died' wouldn't that entail more than a few weeks on crutches?

My crashes have always occurred on Japanese standard or sportbikes(excluding dirtbike crashes), and all when I was much younger, and of course much smarter. Now that I'm old and stupid, I haven't kissed the turf in a long while. I certainly don't want to scuff up my new fringed arm chaps, or dent my EZ-Leaker by doing my Superman Slide down the highway.

It's unlikely reviews of Speed 2 would have bothered him, since he wasn't in it.

I was anxiously awaiting the black, fringed version of the E-Z LEAKER™ but, sadly, it is not to be: from http://www.ezleaker.com

Don't forget David Hasslehoff's recent motorcycle crash.



Oops, you said *celebrity* crashes. (I know he's extremely popular in Germany but that doesn't count, as they also don't believe Saddam has W.O.M.D.)

My EZ-Leaker will now appreciate considerably. Mine was the Anniversary Issue with the gold badge and custom pinstriping. Now taking offers!

UPI Release-



The inventor of the EZ-Leaker(tm) was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident last Saturday. He was unhelmeted and riding his customized Harley-Davidson behind a group of customers who had just purchased several of his EZ-Leakers(tm). He encountered an unexpected patch of moisture on the road while turning at a high rate of speed, lost control and ran into a recently erected U.S. Department of Transportation "55 Saves Lives" billboard.



His relieved family has decided not to continue sales of the EZ-Leaker(tm).

Cap'm I'm ashamed of you, for even knowing that.

For those of you unfamiliar with Knopfler's sound track from Local Hero, go pick it up. Very good to relax to after a bad day. The movie is odd but interesting, one of my favorites. If you like Scottish coastal scenery, you'll love the movie. Typical dry UK humour meets Texas ego-ethnocentrism. Heal quickly Mark. Hop back on that horse real soon.
