Default Re: Lets drink to those who ...

As opposed to those who died, riding in an Aerostich, wearing an Arai and riding a VFR with ABS?



Was it stupid for Larry to ride without a helmet? Of course it was.



Is it stupid for you or I to ride a motorcycle? Of course it is.

Got nothing to do with generation but everything to do with good sense. I am 47, been riding since I was 9 and would not get on any bike without a helmet.

Default Re: On a happier topic...

I'd prefer a Pinot Noir or Petite Syrah.



I'm still not giving out any hints though. Excellent bikes all I might say.

"Ya know what I love about conservatives? The fact that they'll kill you for *their* own good."



In terms of self-defense, I absolutely would kill someone for my own good, or the good of my family... and quite likely for the good of a perfect stranger.



The difference is, that as a liberal you aren't helping people because you want whats good for them. You help them because you want what's good for you. You like the do-gooder buzz you get from it. You don't give a crap if you are actually helping anyone, all you care about it is the buzz you get from your percieved good works.



This explains why you don't care when you find out that since the "War on Poverty" started, we actually have a great many more poor people. The "War on Poverty" is still a success to you, even though it hurt people, because it gave you a good buzz.



Quick... Name a government that slaughtered more than 1 million of its own citizens, that was did not have a centrally controlled economy. Can't? Hrmm... Wonder why?

While I agree with wearing a helmet, and won't ride without one, this accident apparently happened on private property so your veiled referance to a (helmet) law wouldn't have made any difference.

The man bought a ticket and took his chance's, this time he lost. No law's going to change that.

This may be hard to believe, but there was a time when NO ONE wore helmets! I myself rode daily for years sans helmet. Yeah, some guys died after chiping a curb, but not as often as one might think.

Then there's that great wind in the hair feeling. Not so much now of course. But you see my point. Guess we were just better riders back then.

Rock on buddy. Kook is such an idiot. You'll never find a Dad who wouldn't trade his job for the chance to spend real time with his kids. If it was possible, we'd all do it. I know guys who went to medical school, who owe hundreds of thousands of dollars, who would do about anything to have my life.



Kook would rather go to work though.. because he's a real man.
