No I definitely do not get any joy from the fact that most riders who die in SC are over 35, ride cruisers, and don't wear helmets.. The German word Schadenfreude is not a word in the English language for good reason because the English traditions of sportsmanship, fair play, being a good sport/winner reject Schadenfreude as being unmanly, girlish, catty..

Well, that's enough for one day for me, SchadenKook.

I completely lost interest in that article when it said 64% weren't wearing helmets.

Back to work for me. Thanks for the game.. I love sparing with you gentlemen. However, longride tends to jump to conclusions, ignores subtle things, underestimates my agrument then calls me names and gives up. You and Buz are more fun. As a result sometimes you guys have the better agrument and I concede that..

Screw the helmet stat (though significant)... what about the claim that many don't have the proper M license, and hence we can assume don't have basic training or awareness of how to street ride. Sad, if true!

Boys read the entire article.. Wait that is too much to ask. Right.

Well kpaul deduces that most motorcyclists who die in SC are over 35, not wearing helmets and ride cruisers.

Supporting assumptions most riders who are over 35 have cruisers and most sportbike riders wear helmets. I don't think these assumptions are way out there do you?



Oh yeah almost forgot. Also when there is a collision its the car drivers fault. Ok you can flame away now..
