What the hell is with Florida? Seems a disproportionate number of these weird stories come out of that place.

Not a big deal. A disproportionate number of weird people come from there too!

So if the weird people come from Florida, that means mostly normal people are left there? Naaah.

Not at all! It's just better reported!

And we don't have 'em all...

Default More Fun!

Damn, people have been busy killing riders around here. Here's a cager who took the initiative and went the extra mile...she swerved across three lanes to make sure she killed this guy. Once again, a rider has been "ejected from the vehicle." Shame he wasn't wearing his seatbelt.

An impressive display no doubt, and a good argument for retro-active abortion for our hapless cager......

I can tell you as a world traveler that no place has more weird people per capita than Japan and Utah.

I didn't think they allowed weird people in Japan, Utah however probably has almost as many enviro-lefty head cases as Seattle.....

First you move to the country to get back to nature...then you run the local Dairy out of business with land use regulations because cows, well.. stink

My riding buddy's wife's cousin was killed yesterday on his bike in Crestview, FL.

Motorcyclist dies, 15-year old passenger survives - Northwest Florida Daily News

A 85 year old lady in a van turned left in front of him.

His 15-year old son just got scratched up. The boy had on a helmet; dad didn't.

I don't really know if it would make a difference when you smack a van at 45 mph.

We really ought to start testing the elderly for driving ability. My own mother continues to inflict herself on the driving public after god knows how many "little mishaps".... I think that's the single biggest reason to support mass transit in the cities and suburbs, to give these people a viable alternative to driving then yank their licenses.
