So if he was wearing a helmet and died after crashing an ABS equipped VFR, while wearing an Aerostich and an Arai, he would have been making the right choice, in YOUR book?

Default Re: Indian Larry Killed in Helmetless Stunt

Well we know that he won't be riding a motorcycle. It's just too dangerous. Isn't it odd that JB is willing to take risks when it suits him, like drinking beer and riding even thought it's statistically more likely that he'll have a fatal accident? Oh well might as well let Darwinism take it's course while we sit in the lotus position. VWW

No I think it's just because his wife would shoot him if she was forced to spend any more time with him than she already does.

And a leather cap and goggles wouldn't have been much help anyway, after you slid-out on horse manuer and cracked your noggin on that curb.



Now-a-days helmets really DO protect your head. some of those guys wearing helmets are actually pretty decent motorcyclists with 100's of thousands of miles under their wheels.



Of course, I personally believe it should be YOUR choice and will fight for your right not to wear a helmet, if you so choose. However, I'll also call you an idiot for riding without one. -Sean

Default Domestic Bliss

M_E,



Thanks. Thanks heaps!



As I read your post, taking a decompression stop from my arduous duty of sitting on my butt in a wrestling match with all this techno-babble covering the product of so many dead trees, I read your description of your day.



Great. Just great.



'Course, reading about your domestic bliss makes going home at the end of the day (Hey, that's NOW!) to my family that much sweeter. Nothing like a 2 year old boy as a welcome committee. I'm right up there on his list with Momma and Thomas the Tank Engine!



So, you lucky SOB, thank you!

Speak for yourself. I don't consider it stupid or neccesarily dangerous to ride motorcycles.

Riding drunk or with no safety equipment is stupid, performing helmetless stunts on a chopper is stupid, riding over your skill level or traffic conditions is stupid.

Your hypothetical properly equiped VFR rider took all reasonable precations, equipment wise. Presumably what punched his or her ticket was either a lapse in concentration on theirs, or another drivers part.

An intelligent person will take care in every aspect of their lives, but when your time's up it's up. Please don't denigrate my chosen lifestyle with some fool who martyrs himself in the name of fashion

Default Re: Mr Mom

When my wife became pregnant with our son we made a decision that I would stay home to raise him, despite the fact that we would have to be more watchful of how we spent money. Like Buz I volunteer in my son's first grade class. I also do all of the house work and cook all of the meals. If you really want to properly raise a child it is absolutely neccessary to have one parent at home. The truely sad thing now days is that to pay for all of the bleeding heart socialist programs that Kook and his ilk want more of, too many families are forced to have both parents working. Just one more cause of our society's unraveling brought about by liberal nonsense. VWW
