Default Re: Iowa Records More Motorcycle Accident Deaths, GPTB Increase May Be To Blame

A few years back, a couple of friends and I were going across the Burning Wastes of Iowa to a Rally in WI. One guy commented on all the "Deer Crossing" signs in southern Iowa: "Exactly WHO is it that has the job of watching for these Deer, then suggesting locations for signs?"



I explained that what they do isn't a search for LIVE Deer -- rather, they tally the DEAD Deer in a particular stretch of road, then put up signs in the "high-traffic" areas.



Awhile later, after approaching spitting-distance of WI I noticed a sign with a shadow-pic of a Tractor imprinted upon it, and asked the other two "You guys know how they determine where to put up 'Tractor Crossing' Signs, dontcha?"



I guess you had to be there, it was one O' them "off the cuff" things that's feckin' HI-larry-US at the time..............

I was referring to the fact that over one year ago, you said, "A year from now we'll be pining for the days of $3.00 a gallon gas."



Down the memory hole?

My T250R tells me that smoking is a filthy habit.



Absolutely baffles me why.

"I haven't been to Iowa for a bit but I don't recall seeing an inordinate amount (any) of car engined bikes."



The guy's statement about car engines in bikes was preceded by "Falb also attributes the spike in deaths to the bigger engines in modern motorcycles."



Prehaps he meant the displacement of modern cruisers is equal to that of some cars, not that they literally have car engines. Of course the article is pretty vague overall, and leaves a lot of room for speculation.

I do not run, high impact, you know?

The last time everything slowed down and I heard noise was many moons ago after eating some rather powerful little mushrooms
