Default Re: Not necessarily

In 17 years in the fire service, I picked up dead guys with full-face helmets on all the time. If you think wearing a piece of plastic is a replacement for skill and knowledge, I'll see you at the morgue sooner than you think.

There's only one way you could tell Slick Willie was lying. His lips were moving.

IÂ’ve doing some lookinÂ’ around and I think that all of this hub-bub about increased motorcycle fatalities is pure BS.



None of the people I ride with are dead. None of the people in the various motorcycle associations I belong to are dead. None of the people on this MO forum are dead (though MR ALLCAPS was close).



So where are all of these dead bikers?



OK, MO staff – here’s your chance to use that silly poll for something useful so we can put an end to this biker fatality stuff once and for all. Feel free to use this poll question verbatim:



Have you ever been killed on a motorcycle?



1. No.

2. Yes, once.

3. Yes, more than once.

4. I got yer dead biker right here, Ninja Boy!

well it's nice to see you've finally accepted the standard party line. Don't you feel better now that you don't have to think for yourself?

Maybe some of them are just mostly dead.

Here are some actual numbers from 2004. If I can find the 2005 data I will post it.

Oakland Ca's Murder rate this year is already double what it was last year at this time. Can we ban Oakland? Oh yeah, sorry Gabe...
