I am neither athiest nor relitious... Kinda in between. You're free to believe what you want, they're free to believe what they want. If someone needs a little psychological help in the form of a "God", then I certainly believe that it does have physical benefits. Do I beleve GOD is actually helping them? Maybe. If there is one... But at the very least, evidence has shown in the past that perhaps the BELIEF in God helps.

I'm glad the rider recovered as well as he did.

Still, that post is nearly impossible to read. If that's what our schools are producing, we're not getting our money's worth. No wonder this country is so fucked up.

Better switch up your meds, buddy. Judging from your first post in this thread I'm thinking you're still mildly retarded.

I can't believe I just spent 10 minutes reading the first page of this shit before I realized it was from 2006.

And I'm going to agree with singram here to a point- you are not all better because your spelling and grammar are atrocious. Either that or you just don't give a flying fuck. Either way- your forum posting needs some attention to detail.

I work hard and I play hard.

I'm just like everyone else... only different... and if you don't like it- you can suck it.

Sorry to hear about your accident Greg Taskey. Sometimes though, it takes a traumatic experience to straighten your life out. I hope you overcome your issues, and wish you the best keeping your life in order.

I've never seen a rider without a helmet. Closest Ive seen are the harley riders with brain buckets which arguably are just barely better.

Also to the poster above, its 186, and its not gov mandated. They self mandated it to prevent the gov from stepping in AFAIK since as we all know, the less control the gov has over you the better. Handle your own business because if you let them, its not going to be how you want it.

And clearly there is a hole in your education if you feel that being able to correctly and accurately convey yourself is the equivalent of being some form if literary or grammatical instructor. Big difference there child, and it clearly would do you wonders to spend that money on a proper education instead if a new bike.

I like the freedom of choice of wear or not to wear, but.... if you wreck without a helmet, you get to cover all medical expenses that may be incurred by your accident.

on a side note, i see the freedom of choice to wear or not to wear as a gene pool cleansing program. works fairly well, for the most part....except for the occasionally new veggie taking up space in the hospital.

and yes, i wear a helmet and will continue to wear one even if i was civilian, or living in a no-helmet law state, or riding a cruiser (gawd forbid). i've been down. i'm still alive (and i think still normal - if there is such a thing as normal) thank you very much since i had a helmet on.

If you're gonna go, go with a smile!!
