Does Penn law say riders with like only a year or two experience, as measured by the M licence of course, still need to wear a helmet? Many of the states have such stipulations. I'll bet that learners have to wear them.



We don't know how much experience he has. Maybe he rode tons as a kid. Maybe on dirtbikes, which is experience that shouldn't be scoffed at. Let's face it, that licence doesn't mean much. Still it was ultra stupid of him not to get it. Let's see him get one now. It isn't going to be easy. Not that he will be looking to get one.



If he had been killed or terribly and permanently disabled he would deserve no more sympathy than onyone else. In those cases it's always someones son or father or brother and that's what matters. Sefveral of them surely died today on bikes and in cars too.

Default Re: Full Face Helmet

I did a full face plant into a pile of rocks once, wearing a full face helmet. I got up, checked out the bike (expensive plastic repairs, but rideable) and rode it home. I'm just as pretty as I ever was. I have no doubt that I would have ended up with at least some of the same injuries Big Ben recieved if I had just been wearing an open face helmet, let alone one of those silly little beanie things. No one ever expects to crash. Not wearing a helmet is stupid. It might be an individuals choice, but it's still a stupid choice.

Why was I labled and "Idiotic Troll"?



Whatever assclown thought I was f*cking around, do a quick search and you will find that he was scheduled to be in a Campbells Soup commercial that was to be filmed Wednesday, the contract was for $2 million.



Whoever you are, you are one dumb c*cksucker.

Someone did this to one of my posts a couple of weeks ago as well. You'd think if the assclown had any clown balls he'd just step up to the plate and challenge your post.

"...the accident is your fault. Why? You should not be operating that vehicle, period."



I disagree. You should not be operating a vehicle which you cannot safely operate around other people. A license is by no means a guarantee of that. I notice that the article doesn't say that the accident was his fault.



I also disagree with holding sports stars as role models. They're just entertainers. Ridiculously overpaid ones, at that.



The motorcycle test, at least in Cali, is a joke. It's a couple of dots on the ground and a ring. You snake through the dots, then ride around in a circle a couple of times. I could pass it in my sleep, unless you put me on a hog. Then I suppose anybody would have a hard time.



I don't, however, have a license.



On the back of a motorcycle, I guarantee anyone would be safer with me than some newbie who just got out of the safety course.



If a soccer mom blatently pulls out in front of me, and a crack my face on her window, should I be held responsible, even if I was riding in a perfectly legal manner? Should I, having just paid for this hypothetical accident, then appologize for my "behavior?"



We're talking ethics and/or morals here, not DC law.



Seriously, should I? I'm curious.

Anybody? I say, anybody have any words of wisdom for the cager who hooked the "no-see-him" left turn that instigated this incident?



On the football field, Ben plays offence. From here on out I believe that he will painfully recognize the importance of defensive riding including the gear.



Screw the license issue; that's just fodder for the insurance companies along with a possible traffic citation.



Who, among us, hasn't had a "slightly" illegal ride somewhere in the past?

The point is that like Ahnie, he will get off due to his "star status". However, BEn seems like a nice guy that screwed. Ahnie is an *******. Ask any of the numerous women he has assaulted.

I Europe and JApan saying "I didn't see him" is an admission of guilt.

Ben can afford an arai. They should give it to me instead.

Default Re: Hello read the article again bigdx

Another fine demonstration of your puerile reasoning and limited cognitive abilitiesÂ…



You have no information pertaining to the dynamics of the accident and no training or experience in forensic pathology. Your hammer analogy is simply a product of your total lack of understanding and inability to reason. Rather than posting an objective view on the accident, you post is the usual brainless rhetoric, deriding a person far superior to yourself.



In short a$$wipe, please f*ckoff as you do not possess the ability to communicate at my level. You bore the ***** out of me ...
