Amen ksquid. I was thinking the same thing.



Was she really not wearing a helmet (to another poster)?



To everyone, this might make you feel better. My best friend died a few weeks ago of a heart attack at age 37. He was in reasonably good health, if not in prime shape. We all got to go someday. Don't hold back from living just to eke out a few extra years. Of course that's no comfort to the families who lost a perfectly healthy member to a motorcycle accident. I guess my point is, it's not like we're guaranteed to live to 100 unless we ride motorcycles.



But geez definitely pad up out there, so you have a better chance of surviving going down. I remember running into my surgeon in an elevator. He saw my armored Vanson jacket and commented very positively on it. He was even cheerfully optimistic. When he asked if I had pants (I didn't) he looked down and away. I got pants as soon as I could after that, believe me. I realized how crappy it would be to survive an accident but with my hip and knee ground to the bone.



F'n-A, pad up and saddle up and enjoy your blessed life.

Was she? I don't think you are dumb enough to agrue with the fact that wearing a helmet increases your chances of surviving an accident. Are you?

Excellent point on the pants.. When I recently went down wearing jeans I had some pretty good patches of road rash. From now on I am wearing real motorcycle pants.

...or necessary on a busy street since you can use cars around you as interference. In the case described I assumed there were no other cars - could be wrong - never underestimate the idiocy of a car driver.

I don't think you are dumb enough to argue that wearing helmets fixes all problems are you?
