Hate to agree with you Longhaul but you got that one right.

Maybe the insurance companies can have a two tier rate. Lower rates for helmeted riders. If someone signs up for the lower rate and crashes with out a helmet - no coverage!

Default Re: Longride makes a great point

Excellent points, Longride.



Earlier this week was traveling with a direct report. Sharp person, or so I thought - after all, I did hire this person.



Noted the HD keychain on the long ride (nyuck). I asked the obvious question. Answer was: "no, he wants one though and I'm not going to let him have one - ever. Bikes scare me and crotchrockets really scare me. I want them all outlawed." The questions just whirled in what passes for my mind: why the keychain, why provoke your boss when you KNOW he is a long time mc fan, why advocate outlawing something that poses no real threat to you?



Just prior to this, my report had relayed how the family horses had escaped onto the highway. Police had called and send out a patrol to help round up the herd - TN tax dollars at work! Turns out my report had not latched the gate properly.



Being an occasionally, but not reliably quick thinker, I shot back: "fair is fair. Lets outlaw bikes, especially crotchrockets. But to be fair, all owners of livestock must face not only strict liability for escaping animals, but if an escaped animal damages others property or causes personal injury the owner should be banned from owning livestock for life".



Deer in headlights look. Looooooong pause, then: "well, they scare me anyway. I want them all outlawed".



I think this person's work needs a MUCH more detailed review. Found: Trouble in River City.

Good dx vs. Bad dx in two sentences.



To the both of you: Thx for the laugh!

GEICO gives me a break on my car insurance if I wear a seat belt. Anyone know if this is true if you agree to wear a helmet in states without laws compelling helmet use?

Now that's a brilliant concept! Keeps rates down for us full-face lidders, yet leaves those who value freedom over common sense to have their fun in the day until it abruptly ends! All praise the first time a rider goes down and simply does a minor head tap/bounce... if lucky they'll realize it doesn't take much to mush that little noggin.



I'm all for freedom, so long as it doesn't add to societal costs... your choice, but not on my dollar.

We should consider it as a victory for the m/cyclist who would like to choose for themselves, and a defeat for the richardhead power rangers who feel they have the right to dictate to others.

Default Jennifer is great, Arnold is too.

Wish she could run for president..but they will have to change the consitution.. then Arnold would run.. But hey both are better than W. At least Arnold is a self made money who knows what deficits do to an economy (one of his economic advisors is W. Buffet)
