Re: longride spotted in Arkansas.

"Information provided to Today’s THV from the senator reveals 65 percent of motorcyclists killed in 2005 died in states with no helmet laws. Fourteen percent died in states with such laws."

And what states did the OTHER 21% die in? State of Denial? State of Shock? State of Stupor?

My own position is kind of precarious: I'm for the "ideal" of a Helmet Law, yet against the way it actually is implemented.

I also dislike the fact that some Idiot-stick Senator thinks he's a much better Nanny than his constituency. No law, then a law, then a repeal, now another law....... When does it end? Second day of Never.

Mladin should be praised for this.

Seriously, say what you want about this Mladin but he has been out there on point . He has been critical of the AMA race tracks.. As he pointed out many times the U.S. has very few "proper" motorcycle race tracks. Because of Mladin's courage to speak out things get better for all racers.

Re: longride spotted in Arkansas.

Did you watch the report on the Cell Phone Bill?

Hendren is behind that one too. Mind, I could almost back him on it (if it were my State), but studies have shown it's the fact you're TALKING TO SOMEONE NOT THERE (much like this reply to ksquid - couldn't resist, dude!) that's the problem - NOT merely holding a piece of plastic against the side of your head that is distracting.

Re: longride spotted in Arkansas.

Yep WA state is considering it. Hey I caused an accident while fumbling for a cell phone so I can say first hand I like the law that NY state implemented. And you are right it, having a head set on doesn't solve the problem..

Anything to keep the riders safe and keep 'em riding in the rain. From the season's I've followed, MotoGP and WSB are rarely called on the count of rain (unless it's torrential), but AMA SB is all the time. Rain racing is part of the sport as well, so fixing some of the tracks might help with that. Mind you, all tracks should be as "safe" as they can be regardless of weather, so let's hope a committee actually helps.

I just love Mladin's honesty. If we're going to do this half-assed, I can do it from my front porch. You tell 'em Matt.
