Is there ever a good time to text while riding a motorcycle?
 
2013-01-10 01:39:02 PM
Can it really be a Darwin trifecta due to it being in Florida?

While you're waiting at a red light that won't change because the sensor can't detect you

Then you'd be "sitting on" and not "riding". See also: the difference between being in a car and driving it.

Dude, I'm not so sure. Did you see the driver of the car? He was a bit Goofy.

I've actually seen this firsthand.
Being a 30+ year motorcycle rider, I have to say it's by far one of the dumbest things I have ever seen with my own eyes.

And I have teenagers, so that's saying alot.

I'm sure that text was really super-important. Texts always are. Well worth killing yourself or another person.

Priorities, people.

If this affects you, and it sounds like it does, check your state laws; there are those that allow motorcyclists to treat a red light as a stop sign for this very reason. F*cking magnets, how do they work? Not well for motorcycles, Violent J, not well.

Also, have we confirmed that this now-stain on the roadway hasn't passed on his genes, denying natural selection its deserved victory? I consider this Darwin Award candidacy probationary at best at this time. I guess I should read TFA.

I think he knows this and he was making a joke to tie together two recent articles...but then you got all serious on him.

FTCSOTFA: aimee toussaint • a day ago

He was a childhood friend of mine and an amazing father of two beautiful boys. Most people are guilty of being on their phones when they shouldn't be. none the less when things like this happen, it is still a tragedy. RIP my friend, you will be missed dearly!


1. A 40-year-old father of 2 out being an idiot at 1am on a Wednesday morning. Unsat. Also, not a Darwin Award candidate.

2. Don't be like Aimee Toussaint... if ever a person that you care about is killed in public (murder, suicide, or accident) the LAST THING you want to do is read the comments or add your own in the local news. Trust me, you are not going to feel better after reading what we assholes of the internet have to say about your loved one.

and unless the other motorist has a f u attitude and savings the motorist will be screwed by this as the insurance companies nickle and dime. a disney employee coming home at 1 am? maybe a exec or maybe someone who has been cleaning up the vomit and boogers from the kiddy attractions and restaurants.

I guess it wasn't enough of a challenge worrying about cagers running him down, so he had to increase the motorcycle danger by texting while riding.

Awww Jesus H., is "cagers" really a slang term used by bikers to describe people who drive cars? Please tell me it means something else.

It is stupid and irresponsible to text while your driving a car. On a motorcycle is a whole new level of stupid.

Oh, I steampunked a periscope, brass, of course, old chap, to go from the headlamp up and right back at me, but deflected it downward on the keys, with a round, concave, mirror-polished brass disc on a copper gooseneck. Keeps the light out of my eyes, and on the keys where it belongs. The reduced road glare keeps too many bugs from flying into my teeth at night, too.

Although is more of a functional nickname that reminds themselves and others how volunerable motorcycles are compared to cars. Which is nice to keep in mind seeing how cars turning into the path of motorcycles is the single largest cause of motorcycle accidents.

At least it's not a flat out pejorative such as "donor-cycle".
