    I once heard that there are only two kinds of motorcycle riders: Those who have been involved in an accident and those who will be involved in an accident. Both my husband and I are in the first category.

    I see idiots around here riding motorcycles in sandals and flip-flops.

    Before a young friend of mine bought leathers to wear on his motorcycle, he seemed to have more scab than skin from all the falls he took. Of course, he then ripped up his leathers a lot, but bruises hurt a lot less than road rash. Never broke any bones that I know of, so he was “really lucky so far”, unlike my 20-something dad who, back in ’49, was hit by a car which ran a red light. Dad had a compound fracture of his femur and was on crutches for six months.

    @Leslie Barks

    I can tell you from experience that nothing complicates tending one’s broken bones, road rash, and other injuries more than having some of said road rash on one’s hands.

    Around here we refer to Guys riding in Shorts, T-Shirt and Sneaks as “Organ Donors”

    Simply put, “As velocity increases, pressure decreases.”

    Pennsylvania repealed its helmet law a few years ago. The vast majority of those who don’t wear helmets are riding Harley-Davidsons.
    It’s especially widespread among those who I call “pigs on hogs,” who are the ones who take on the “biker” look and remove the mufflers from their “hogs.”
    Most who ride “rice rockets” in PA still wear helmets.

    There are a few things crazier. Sidecar racing for example.

    There are old motorcyclists, and there are bold motorcyclists. There are no old, bold motorcyclists,

    Doesn’t matter how good a rider you are if you’re sharing the road with an idiot. Defensive riding pays,

    I was practicing defensive riding at it’s best. Headlight, taillight x2, bright yellow hat, and the #1 thing: Awareness. I saw the vehicle approaching the intersection, saw it was slowing, AND MADE EYE CONTACT with driver. She was stopped (although maybe not legally stopped, but close enough for all practical purposes), but pulled out and T-boned me anyway.


    Drivers tend to look for cars. If it isn’t a car coming, then it’s clear, right? Bicycles, and sometimes motorcycles, don’t register in some people’s heads because they are not cars

    He’s got his helmet on so they’ll have something left to identify after the crash.

    Always a good strip !
    I Thought like a 20 Y O till my 50s …
    when I realized all my old ridin’ buddys were a LOT younger than I ! I decided I wanted to try to get older !
    A lot of the guys didn’t have that choice.
