Default That's the majority, I'm afraid

Americans don't like being told what they can and can't buy. Unforturnately, we look at bike purchase like car purchase--e.g. "I want the biggest, baddest, fastest..."



I rode my buddie's Honda 599 the other day, and it's in no way a 'beginner' bike. If you don't know how to turn or brake well (or brake AND turn well), I can imagine overzealous throttle twisters riding these things over some cliff or into, hence, a car.

No, you get Brian Griese as the quarterback!



Grossman is averaging just 2.66 games per season in his first three seasons.



You might as well start the season by taking a hammer to his ankle.

Must you always point out that wearing armour is not a necessity because riding a motorcycle is inherently dangerous? Who cares what the driver of the car can or cannot fathom? The obvious point is that it's dumber not to wear armour.

I wonder if that dealership also gave him a free voucher for a MSF class. How quickly good publicity can turn into bad publicity.

Did you actually read the article? Do you know what a Harley dash looks like. The Pic with the article is not a Harley. And in non-helmet law states, non-Harley riders ride without helmets as much as the Harley folks. An idiot is an idiot. Stupidity does not determine brand...

Here's an excerpt from the article you posted the link to:



"....I don't ride sport bikes. I ride Harleys and choppers and I ride in a group..."



I guess he changed his mind about the type of motorcycle he rides and the part about group riding.



At least he is alive. Hopefully, he will reconsider his attitude about wearing a helmet.

Check that:

Big Ben's Busa is the vehicle in question.



Should I launch into an anti-squid rant? Or should we just leave it, since it would appear that an elderly woman pulled a left turn in front of him.



Happens all the time, with no regard to brand-of-bike.

Who said anything about the type of bike? A little defensive, are we?



And yes, he was riding a Hayabusa.
