Don't ride in India

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

OUCH!!!!! All joking aside I hope that family held onto his motorcycle for him. That is a MAJOR investment over there.

wow!


both of those guys took a bad hit...


I was sitting still on my little Piaggio MP3 scooter last week in a state park up in Fulton, MS.


had been raining earlier, and the leaves were wet, pine needles of course.
all of a sudden, my right foot slips and down I go, fell over onto my right side. Should have been wearing my yellow riding jacket of course.... "but I am just piddling around, how can you get hurt?"


got X-rays yesterday, will find out today if the insurance company will let me get an MRI done.... sure hurts like hell, and I can't raise my arm up higher than about 45

I'll tell you, getting old sucks! Remember when we crashed bikes at speed and got up and laughed and got back on and rode away with no consequences?

That guy in the video was lucky the bull did not try to run over him, you notice he pulled his legs up and crashed into the rider with his chest. That was definitely an OH S*** moment for bull and rider alike.

Well if that ain't some bull! Out for a week, that's incredible he survived.

I can attest to the hazards of cattle in the road, there are millions of them in India.

Just look at this photo, taken up a steep, winding mountain road with no guard rails. There's cows in the middle of the road, beside the road,... and there are random cow pies in the road to take you by surprise when you're coming around one of those hairpin turns!



Oh wait,... I took that picture last year in California, coming back to Bakersfield from seeing the sequoias. OK, move on, nothing to see here.

ATGATT?

Did he have a headlight modulator?

Deer whistles?

Did he carry a firearm while riding?

I know - IT WAS THAT DARKSIDE TIRE THAT CAUSED THE CRASH! Toroid tire and he would have swerved without crashing. Damn car tire kept him from making a pirouette!
