"Usually over something stupid"



Usually? I cannot think of a single wreck I had that I could not have prevented simply by thinking like an adult.

Well it ain't the first time.. a bit pissed about the recurrence, more than ****iness.

The 200mph accusation made a lot of waves on lots of internet sites... so that's an easy one to keep in mind if you're doing any sort of research. But what do I know..

Hell, I'm almost 50, fat and ride a Geezer Glide. I figure if I'm going to crash, I might as well do it in style!

Default Check that!

I crashed twice on my 72 Bonnie. It was pretty fast and handled great, but the drum brakes kinda sucked. It wasn't braking that was my problem then, it was staying rubber side down. I got my fill of gravel and grass on that bike.

If a tree fell in the forest, and there was no one there to hear it, would I still be wrong?
