Default Re: Good reasons exist for suing someone

Stand in the middle of the road and you're going to get hit. Should there be a lawsuit if the kid went and stood on railroad tracks videotaping a locomotive?

Default Re: A little more chlorine in the gene pool please,

Did you ever wonder why salvage yards are filled with sportbikes when in fact there are more cruisers on the road?



A lot of it has to do with the fact that cruisers, being the agricultural implements that they are, are not usually totalled in less-severe accidents (with crash bars and wide handlebars) whereas sportbikes, with their expensive plastic and aluminum parts, shorter wheelbases, etc., are far more likely to be.

Default The difference is

No that is different, it involves the concept of reasonableness. In this particular case the rider could reasonably avoid an accident if he was in control of his vechicle and operating it in a normal manner. You can't just run pedestrian over if they are standing in the road if you could of reasonably avoided the accident. In the locomotive case i.e. it takes miles to stop, can't change direction when it is operated in a reasonable manner. But if the train was speeding that is a different manner.

Default Re: Stunter hits & kills friend who was videotaping him.

Here's a comment for the off road crowd (won't do much for most street riders). Stand behind a tree when taking a picture of a friend doing a jump, wheelie, or whatever down the trail (yeah - poke your head and camera out the side to take the picture). If the bike gets out of control, you've got the tree to block for you.

Probably sounds like obvious advice - but some might not think of it (or the consequences of getting hit by an out of control bike...)

Too dream the imposable dream. It's like buying a lottery ticket then quiting my job before the numbers are picked.



I'll believe it when I see it.

Glad I got my extra-stupid years behind me before the invention of video cams.
