Default Re: Indian Larry Killed in Helmetless Stunt

I don't think he did carefully evaluate the risks. Nothing wrong with the stunt, but a wheel wobble is something you can test for with all your mass centalized on the seat and they aren't that uncommon in old bikes let alone a chopper. I'd do what he did on my FLHS, but not on my Norton.

Exactly! So does this mean that you finally "Get It" or are you just trying to be sarcastic again?

Kpaul, i think i just had an Epiphany man, it really is natural selection... trying to stop it is like trying to stop the earth's rotation or sumthing. Better to sit back in lotus position and watch it unfold.

Tsk tsk. you just don't make a very good Materialist, longride.



I say, let's put on "Harley-Davidson Blues" by Canned Heat and hoist a couple for Larry.



He'd probably prefer to be honored that way than by more freakin' safety legislation.

He might have been hit by a bus, but the fact is he wasn't. He died from head injuries a helmet probably would have prevented.

Nope, he made A CHOICE, his choice, right or wrong it is not for us to decide.



He knew the consequence of what he was doing.



My advice: wear a fuggin helmet. Be safe out there.



RIP

You know what I love about liberals? The fact that they'll kill you for your own good... and they'll sleep soundly after doing it.



CS Lewis once said something about the Benevolent Tyrant... hrmmm....
