This is just waaaay too much sadness. I had been pushing for a MO interview and test ride with Indian Larry. Now it will never happen. Rest in peace, brother.

JB, get with the program. We all have to put on long faces and bemoan the loss to society of this icon.

Default Re: Strictly speaking for dummies

In the first place, I'm not a"dummy", in the second place if he was standing on the seat at the time it's difficult to say what his aspect ratio was on impact, It's most likely that a helmet would have prevented massive head trauma, however the angle of impact may have been such that his neck broke instead, or any other factor.

Believe me, I'm as pro helmet as they come. I owe my life to wearing a helmet on 3 occasions that I know of, and probably some I don't, unlike you I just don't jump to obvious conclusions.
