Default Re: CO in Top Ten in Bike Deaths.

It's not too hard to figure the 188%. When someone rides by on a motorcycle it's pretty hard to tell whether they're over or under 21. So in effect the law gives everyone permission to ride without a helmet. Naturally more of the young and foolish did so.

The funny thing is that The Highwayman only posted about 8 -12 times about five years ago, and he is still mentioned on this board.



Talk about a legend.



Did he ever pop up on any other biker forums?

I think he popped up on the Harley Email Digest way back when as well.

His Lexus blew a CV joint and he crashed while pulling his trailer.

He was great. I learned a lot from him. For example, my Uncle Les who was in the USMC and fought at Tarawa and who hated HDs and rode Triumphs until he was 70 was actually an atrociteur and unpatriotic! Where else am I gonna get put straight about things now that THM is gone?

Oddly enough he crashed into the jackass that sold his bike and wrote the article about how scary bikes are and how he wanted to live longer...

Default Re: Some more out-of-ass commentary from pedophile-dad.

"Half of the fatalities are related to negotiating a curve prior to the crash" {FARS}



"Collision with a fixed object is a significant factor in over half of the fatalities" {FARS}



"Braking and steering maneuvers possibly contribute for almost 25 percent of the fatalities"{FARS}



Mmm, I wonder what biker genre is most related with the infantile antics described above Â…





It takes a real genius to make the above statements and then claim that cruisers are safer than sportbikes. And as for the speeding, I know of no street legal production motorcycle that isn't capable of breaking the speed limit.



Let's review, handling whether in a curve or avoiding a stationary object, braking, and steering maneuvers. Those all seem to be areas where cruisers are severly limited when compared to sportbikes.



I'd be surprised if you've actually ever even ridden a motorcycle, least of all owned one.
