When did throwing a leather chapped leg over the seat of a Harley make man invinsible? Yes, I know its loud. Yes I see how stern your face gets when you jump on. No I do not think you are 10 times stronger because you ride. No I do not see that silly leather vest as a bullet proof jacket, no matter how many patches are on it. One should not have to endure bugs in the teeth to enjoy a good stroll on the open road. I have ridden and I understand the enjoyable pleasure of riding through some winding roads or being outside. You are not all hells angels.
no. I live min. from Laughlin, NV and we have many harley gatherings here. Last week a guy was killed on one because an old man pulled out in front of him. The whole biker community made a huge fuss about it including a memorial rally and newspaper articles about bad drivers who don't "respect" the riders. While I do understand that, the paper printed that the rider was doing 35 miles over the speed limit. sooo what do you do?
I say start tearing down the immortal immage of the rider. heck, I have 100 new rider fatality stories. How about spouses getting killed because she wants her own bike. Its sad really
Can't really comment on this, cause never been close to American biker. Ghost, Hal - all whom I can think of, and both are pretty decent
I pulled up behind a biker last summer and saw a sticker on the back of his helmet that said
"If you can read this the bitch fell off".
Kind of crass but so funny...
