Re: Indian Larry seriously hurt

Thats to bad, colorful guy, interesting ideas on bikes, but it was just a matter of time before he got hurt doing one of his stupid tricks without wearing a helmet.

Re: Indian Larry dead

That's about the size of it. I don't agree with his choices, but as an adult it's his choice to make and his price to pay.

Too bad, another one bites the dust.
Re: Indian Larry dead, WTF

If I had my 'druthers I'd go a 95 of a coronary, screwing my worst enemy's 18y.o. great grand daughter.

Re: Is it generational?

While I agree with wearing a helmet, and won't ride without one, this accident apparently happened on private property so your veiled referance to a (helmet) law wouldn't have made any difference.

The man bought a ticket and took his chance's, this time he lost. No law's going to change that.
Re: Lets drink to those who ...

Speak for yourself. I don't consider it stupid or neccesarily dangerous to ride motorcycles.

Riding drunk or with no safety equipment is stupid, performing helmetless stunts on a chopper is stupid, riding over your skill level or traffic conditions is stupid.

Your hypothetical properly equiped VFR rider took all reasonable precations, equipment wise. Presumably what punched his or her ticket was either a lapse in concentration on theirs, or another drivers part.

An intelligent person will take care in every aspect of their lives, but when your time's up it's up. Please don't denigrate my chosen lifestyle with some fool who martyrs himself in the name of fashion

'Course not, what greater insult than to knock her up?
Re: Mr Mom

Since before my daughters were born I've worked rotating shift and my wife worked days, so I've been around for and taking care of my kids all their lives.

Now that I work days, my wife works swing so I'm home to help with homework and cook dinner and get them to bed, while she gets them up and out the door in the mornings.

Plus my days off are monday and tuesday so in the summer I take them to the zoo and such when there's no crowds. I'm glad I've had a chance to be an active parent, and I don't understand guys that spend no time with their kids

Their loss, I guess.

Re: Strictly speaking...

Falling off his bike and landing on his melon is what croaked him........
Re: Strictly speaking for dummies

In the first place, I'm not a"dummy", in the second place if he was standing on the seat at the time it's difficult to say what his aspect ratio was on impact, It's most likely that a helmet would have prevented massive head trauma, however the angle of impact may have been such that his neck broke instead, or any other factor.

Believe me, I'm as pro helmet as they come. I owe my life to wearing a helmet on 3 occasions that I know of, and probably some I don't, unlike you I just don't jump to obvious conclusions.
Re: snap crackle pop

Yeah, video with sound please
Re: Lets drink to those who ...

Well yeah, when I was young and foolish I ate speed like popcorn then smoked weed to settle down then went out bar hoppin' with my bros on choppers packin' heat, no helmets, no coats, hell no shirts if it was hot night.

That was then, this is now. I don't know if I survived because I was lucky or what but I did. Now I know better and I'm not afraid to tell someone if they're f***n' up. living that life will get you dead.

You know that, well as I do. That whole old bikers vs. bold bikers. Larry punched his own ticket. Too bad I'm sure he left people who loved him.

I save my sympathy for guys like Randy Scott.

If you're going to insist on being reasonable we won't let you post anymore.
