Grodsky wrote a monthly column for Rider and was a noted educator as well. He was killed in a deer collision while on a road trip in Texas, earlier this year. It's got me looking for Bambi every time I leave the city.

Maybe when the current ad blitz is over with, the AMA could push for adding that sort of thing to our states' laws.

You realize that no one takes you at all seriously any more, right?

I don't have a motorcycle endorsement, and I've been pulled over three times (two for speeding, one for being in the area while they were looking for a perp who was apparently also a silverwing-riding hippy). I told them up front that I didn't have it, and they didn't care.



What I got out of it: The motorcycle endorsement has no real meaning, even for Joe McNormalguy.



The safety class is a different story, of course, but you don't have to take it to get the M.

I'm not disagreeing with you at all. However, I don't know how PA looks at it.

If the test is so easy it's a joke, why haven't you passed it? Regardless of how safe you think you are, riding a bike without a license puts all motorcyclists in a bad light - with the cops who pull your stupid ass over, and with the general public who will find out in the news that you rode without a license if you're ever involved in an accident. Why not just pass the test and get a license?

Dude. The guy put his face through a windshield! If you don't think that a full-face helme would have lessened his injury, you're either a troll or a total retard.

Hah! I've got you both beat. I got an "anon" email wishing me DEAD with my brains bashed out for my only just barely over the top eurotrash rant.



Reminds me of something a headdoc pal told me: "20-25% of all people have psychiatric problems that could benefit from medical treatment".



Once I made the mistake of mentioning the heat issues & cramped two-up ****pit arrangements for FJR13 (pre 06). An FJR fan sent me repeated nasty emails....and I mean NASTY & REPEATED....did I mention that I got multiple nasty emails from that nutbag?



Thank goodness the nice emails outnumber the nutbag crap about 4:1. Hey!! My doc bud was right!
