Something really needs to be done about this "objects in motion/ gravity-thing." It is not just dangerous to motorcyclists, but also to CHILDREN. In fact- my three year old was plafully running in my driveway, minding her own business when, through the maliciousness of gravity, was pushed to the ground and suffered abrasion/hematoma to one of her limbs.

The monetary damage to my family was a popsicle and a barbie-band-aid.

please help us.

She's a lawyer. She will find a way to sue somebody for it!

Well. Gravity has no money. Any lawyer worth her salt will counsel her clients about the practical effect of a lawsuit. You'd have to pay my costs and fees but there would be no practical way to recoup your damages. So, this is not a course that I would advise.

Can't we blame Bush for this somehow? He's behind every other calamity that has befallen the world the last 8 years. If you were a decent lawyer, you could make this one stick!

Yup, the most dangerous bike is the one being ridden by a douche-bag who thinks highway wheelies, stoppies, or riding while drunk is a great way to impress strangers.

When I was younger foolish and prone to irrisponsible behavior I rode my bike so drunk I ran into my own car. Should I sue Harley Davidson for manufacturing the M/C or the Washington State Patrol for surplusing the bike there by allowing me to purchase it, Ford Motor Company for building and selling the Pinto I ran into (at least it didn't explode..) or the owner of the duplex we lived in at the time for not making the driveway wide enough for me to wobble past the car w/o hitting it?

Then there's Rainier Brewery for brewing the only beer any home town Seattle boy would drink at the time.

Complex legal issues to be sure.....

Haha... thanks, I admire you as you well. I have never done a stoppie, I've never done a wheelie (highway or otherwise), I never drink and ride, and I don't give two sh*ts what strangers thing

I do, however, have a tendency to go way too damned fast.
