jeez guys.... all these painful horror stories.. I think i'll go sell my bikes and just watch youtube videos...man..you guys are scaring me !!

I am a very conservative rider..sometimes a bit of acceleration thrill.... i guess one of the reasons I still prefer the old 300...only so much motor there, and lower to the ground.

I think well over half the time it comes out of the garage is to help me do chores..in fact the chain saw seems to be living on the back rack and the crate full of tools on the front these days.. even if I want to scoot, I never seem to get out of 3rd gear before I run either too fast or out of space...

if it's any comfort... I'm sure, even with all your wreck scars, you're still purtier than me (grin)

Yeah I meant Darwin in the sense of natural selection. Motorcycle driver was driving like he had a death wish and he got his wish. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

Hopefully the witnesses will be sufficient to not only clear your neighbor, but have the dead guy's insurance make him whole on his vehicle.

I don't have much use for people who use public roads as their personal race tracks, and sport bike riders seem to be the worst offenders. Don't put other people's lives at risk to get your jollies. If you want to do it, by all means do it, but do it on a track or deserted road, not in traffic.

I guess my tolerance for such things went to nil when I had kids. If someone hit me driving like that with my kids in the car if the wreck didn't finish them off I would.

well folks, I hate to say it like this, but accidents happen, being young and or dumb and doing dumb things, is something I bet were ALL guilty of, I am sure we all don't drive EVERY speed limit every where!
I am also know, going slow doesn't mean SAFE
I have seen enough head on collisions OFFROAD< where a guy was driving slow and rolled an atv, or came around a corner and meet head on with a guy coming the other way
I have seen more BAD accidents that I care to recall
but seen a few broken backs when folks were creeping up a small hill and rolled backwards and atv landed on them,

I am sure folks that buy ANYTHING that goes fast are guilty of driving them FAST at times, its the nature of the beast
you DON"T own something that goes 200 MPH and only drive the speed limit every where, NOR do you ONLY speed on a race track, its just not how it works out in the real world.

wrong will always be wrong, and there will always be risks when you do wrong, the price YOUR willing to pay sadly is often NOT the same price others end up paying by our actions.
NO one does most things they know are WRONG< expecting things to go BAD, and more often than not they NEVER go BAD<
its maybe why we all take risks we do when we do, were playing the odds!

I also think MOST of us as we age and have more to loose, start to think more of what we do and of others, but NOT all do!

the saying young and dumb, is a part of life, some grow up faster, some never grow up and stay on the dumb side, or just ignorant side !
I personally think its the worst of times now, with so many who ONLY think of themselves, this entitlement thought process so many have today!
were all in for worse drivers on our roads if you ask me than better
making SMART cars I think is nothing but a band-aide that is going to make worse drivers!
drivers now don't pay attention enough, have cars fdo more thinking and drivers will do less!

Best one I've heard in a while! & let me be the first one to say, I've won some serious stupid prizes over the years!

This kid on the bike & statements remind me of my bike accident I had back in 2015. I was in the the Trauma Unit for 2 weeks.

Long story really short... My buddy hit me from behind... I was gong roughly 30mph, him more like 80mph.

Witness told the cops that prior to this accident we were passing them so fast that it was like they were in reverse! They didn't lie... 120mph in a 50mph is pretty darn fast on a 2 lane highway... I got lucky & lived, I also learned & gave up rockets, due to the fact I can accept I have no self control on 2 wheels.

I'm sure the guy won't be charged, but will have to live with the bad memories.


Play Stupid Games, Win Stupid Prizes is the TRUTH!!!!!

Since I lasted posted the motorcycle accident here in Lacombe , there were 2 more separate vehicle fatalities in a 3 miles section of highway , people are driving like they are crazy , this one guy they say was driving 45 mph on a flat tire with sparks flying , he drifted off the black top and got caught up in the rocks of the shoulder , lost control , flipped the truck into a ditch , wasn't wear a seat belt and died

..... since I posted about the motor cycle wreck , we found out that the GSXR 1100 has a top speed , right off the show room floor with no mods of 185mph , Trooper told the store clerk the skid mark was 150 ft plus , the impact they figure was around 120mph ------------- so the bike may have been doing around the 185mph top speed in a 55mph speed zone , the tire and rim of the truck he hit is smashed against the engine block , was told one of the guys ( appendictures ) spell check me on that one , which I think is either an arm or leg , was disconnected from his body and his insides was all outside , 150 ft skid mark with a 5 ft diameter blood ring at the end , a horrid accident

A 16y/o boy got killed on a 4 wheeler yesterday in Crossville TN. I saw it on the news, no details on it though. Its sad when this kind of stuff happens.
