Default Be ultra alert out there MOrons...

I just found out from a friend that the guy who bought my '71 CB350 got centerpunched by some boob in a pickup truck, and killed. This happened in the Glassel Park suburb of Los Angeles, with lots of hills, narrow streets and blind corners.

The driver is being charged with vehicular manslaughter. The rider left a wife and two kids, without any life insurance.

It's getting crazy out there on the mean streets of Los Angeles. The roads are even more dangerous than the freeways anymore. Too many speeders not paying attention, running red lights, driving like idiots.

So watch out. Some of us can ride every day for life and never get a scratch, while others pay the ultimate price for the freedom of a motorcycle.

And that's what it's all about, freedom. Right?

May he rest in peace, and the Lord take care of his family.

Remember, you are like the only person with eyes in a sea of blind people...

Roger that... I'm the invisible man when I'm on the bike.

I had some guy in a Ranger go all road ragey on me yesterday, traffic was crawling along and I made a lange change in front of him to hook up with some guy on a beemer so we could increase our presense. I look in my mirror and this clown is red faced pounding on the steering wheel and flipping me off, I couldn't hear him but he was obviously ranting pretty good to his stonefaced passanger. He didn't get stupid but I kept an eye on him for a couple of miles till traffic cleared and I could put some distance and cars between us...what an ass hole, probably have a anurism before long if he keeps blowing a fuse like that.
