Looks like an average Sunday morning.

Yeah, it does - you just have to download Windows Media Player for Mac (it's free).

Default I remeber a really bad one a few years back.

I remeber reading about a really bad one a few years back.



A lady just starting out in riding was with a group of two other lady riders and target fixated on a pickup truck coming the other way. She crossed the center line while leaning to the inside of the curve but counter steering into the side of the truck. She was going at or under the listed corner speed and the investation showed that the bike could have easily made the corner in her own lane.



I know the wreck was bad and she survied but don't know if she lost her leg. Hope she made it.

I know if you have had a CPR course and do what you were taught there, you can't be sued. That part of the law is 'the good samaritan' law. Being actually required to stop is a new one to me. If you are a witness to what happened, you are undboubtedly required to make yourself available, but I don't know that you are required to render any aid. I can think of a few people I would rather not have help me, thanks very much.

I'm sure the loud pipe helped save his life.

That was the funniest part of the whole video. I'm 60, and I could take those guys!

ItÂ’s amazing what lengths some guys will go to get on camera. Maybe the rider thought the people with the camera where talent scouts, and decided to show off his latest magic trick. Now you see me, now you donÂ’t!

All jokes aside, I hope the guy survived with nothing more than a bruised ego.

I once came up on CHP car, stuck behind an RV, so of course I had to tag along, while we labored up and down hills at 25 mph. Finally, the RV turned off, and damned if there wasn't a couple of widebodies on a full dresser that had been holding up the RV! The CHP got on his loudspeaker, and told them to either speed up or get off the damn road. I got to get me one of those.
