He also missed out on a two million dollar soup commercial contract that was to be filmed Wednesday.

Chuck Norris doesn't wear helmets for protection.



Helmets wear Chuck Norris for protection.

I wonder if someone will offer him a 2 million dollar pro- motorcycle helmet commercial showing him sipping soup through a straw.

Perhaps groups such as AMA, HOG, BRAG, BMW-ON Etc... could get him to do some public service work for them now? Promoting proper training and protective gear?

Quite frankly, he is an idiot.



Forget that he might have screwed up his career, he is an adult and made his choice. He must live with the consequences.



But now, this "role model" set the example. How? By riding without a license. Just the type of behavior we should encourage.



I do not know the law in PA, but in DC, if you are operating a vehicle without a proper, valid license for that vehicle, the accident is your fault. Why? You should not be operating that vehicle, period.



No one can say of rider trainig would have made a whit of difference in this event. I can say that without a license, he had NO BUSINESS riding that bike. His error is compounded in the fact that he is a star football player and his reckless actions made the newspaper.



You know, I don't make millions a year, but somehow I manage to have a valid motorcycle license. My two cars and my motorcycle are properly registered and insured, and I am just "some guy", not a star. He should be held to the exact same standard as the rest of us.



I truly hope he makes a public appolgy for his behavior. I would also not be unhappy if he faced legal action for riding without a license.



Wow, two people with the influence to positively portray bikes and they both crash, without a license.

Default Full Face Helmet

Take note you idiots who think beanie helmets are the thing. Had Ben been wearing a full face helmet things would have been much better..

Good point! Maybe a close-up shot showing extreme mental distress as Ben struggles with the chunks.

There's a store in my hometown that's been selling scooters and had a bicycle helmet hanging over the handlebars of one of the models on display. I hope those were 50 cc, but it still didn't look like a very effective lid.
