Well, as long as we're at it then, 90% of people have no business driving a car either because most people suck at driving things.



And for the record, it wouldn't be smart for your nephew to start riding on a ZX-10R. Given his other talents maybe you're right and it might not be a good idea to start riding at this very moment. But to purport to make these kinds of life decisions for him is the height of presumptuousness. Maybe he'll get hit between the eyes by a line drive and never be able to ride a motorcycle at all. Maybe the money and fame will go to his head and he'll end up like Daryl Strawberry. Unless you're God, or at the very least prophetic, you have no ultimate knowledge about what's best for other people.

Yes, you hit it on the head. It's DEVOLUTION.



(I was reading this post when the DEVO song came on the web radio, and I thought "how appropriate").

Try State Farm. I haven't found any insurance company with lower rates for motorcycles. I'd go with a $1000 deductible if you can.

Well Abe, I'm assuming you don't have children and aren't married, have no mortgage to pay, and probably aren't making six figures. You have a different perspective on life. You are only responsible for yourself. Once you do all of those things, you get put in a position to figure out what is best for other people, and your perspective changes on what losses are acceptable, and not acceptable. I know how I was when I was young, and would have him avoid making the same mistakes. Don't worry. All those old farts you hate, you will become one day, if you live that long. The oldest Indian became Chief for a reason. My favorite saying: "Hire kids at 19 while they still know everything"

No, I don't think I could enlighten you about anything. I'm sure you already know everything. No bar should be used for anything. Everyone should be able to do anything all the time. No limits. No judgements or standards ever. Happy now jerkoff??
