How much will the fines cost?

Did I miss the LMFAO part?

He's kinda cute.

And I can't help but wonder if alcohol was involved.

Why is he wearing half a foot?

Should have just gone with a tube sock.
Toddler tube sock.

Pray 4 Mojo: Did I miss the LMFAO part?


I'm with ya.  Plus, the headline made me scratch me head.

Well, it's summer. I guess I could believe a half foot from him. In the winter riding around on a motorcycle would let you keep it in a yogurt cup.

Meatybrain: Nice bootie.



That's what I was going to say.  REALLY nice.

Wow, terrible headline - half a foot in a shoe?  WTH?

Uh, I think the "half a foot" the headline refers to is a measurement of 6 inches of weenage.

Bondith: Why is he wearing half a foot?


The site wouldn't load at first so I figured it was because operating the clutch without a shoe might be painful, and editing screwed that up.

Seeing the video frame though....  I know that's not enough to prevent public indecency charges, and I'm willing to bet DUI charges as well.

/Over 80% of the fatal motorcycle accidents last year for my organization involved alcohol.  Don't drink and ride.

Just some good ol' boys, never doin' no wrong...

Even the cop wasn't taking this too seriously.

Firethorn:  /Over 80% of the fatal motorcycle accidents last year for my organization involved alcohol.  Don't drink and ride.

Can't remember all the stats but alcohol, no helmet and excessive speed are all supposed to be really high percentages.  There are always random and/or unpreventable things, but not too many people die without at least one of those three things involved.

I'm sure a few of those who DID have one of those factors would have died anyway without it, but still - I like to think it's not quite so dangerous if you're careful.

First, I screwed up - I meant shifter, not clutch

Sparky the Fire Dog: Can't remember all the stats but alcohol, no helmet and excessive speed are all supposed to be really high percentages.  There are always random and/or unpreventable things, but not too many people die without at least one of those three things involved.


'Danger Factors' identified:
1.  Alcohol
2.  Lack of training/experience - Complete the basic rider's course and survive the first month of riding and your odds of a fatal accident go down(something like 1/3rd the accidents had riders without BRC and in their first month).
3.  Excessive speeding - by this I mean at least 50% over the speed limit, not the 'normal' 5mph
4.  Driving late at night(IE between midnight and 4 am when the most drunks/tired drivers are out)
5.  Lack of safety equipment - no helmet, no bright/reflective clothing, etc...

I'm sure a few of those who DID have one of those factors would have died anyway without it, but still - I like to think it's not quite so dangerous if you're careful.

Only ONE accident that was briefed didn't have one of the 5 factors.  Most had multiple.

/Got a bike a bit over a month ago, and LOVE it!

Been riding for 4 years now, still love it.

Oh sweet, I'm over a month :-D  Barely, though, if you subtract time that the thing's been in the shop (had to get carbs cleaned, then broke the clutch cable).  I did the rider's course first thing.

The only risk factor I do is drive at night...  and that I only do in town where I'm not going 55mph and hitting deer.  Even there I try to avoid drunk o'clock.

Put about 500 miles on it so far!
 
2013-06-27 07:57:29 PM
...  probably would have put on more than 500 by now but it's been raining a ridiculous amount ever since I bought it.

Hey, anybody going to be at J&P Cycles open house in Anamosa, IA this weekend?  I'll probably be there Sunday!
