    No less tasteless than what typically passes for humour around here. Motorcycles is dangerous stuff, after all.

    I'm an organ donor since before I returned to riding, maybe I'm just speeding it up.

    Hired? I don't think anyone was hired for that spoof.

    I don't find it tasteless or offensive...

    The term "donorcycle" is not a new thing... I've actually heard it in Emergency from a nurse.

    It's very funny and well they should do one for "avalanchedonor" or "skidonor" or "PWCdonor"

    You're approximately 50X more likely to die on a bike crash than in a car. If that makes you uncomfortable maybe you should rethink what you're doing.

    Tasteless sure, but mostly guilty of dragging out a "joke" too long and falling flat. Like SNL is alot of times, unfunny.

    I hear it was more like 30x.... but yes. It's dangerous.

    The Juke commercial was special in that it portrayed motorcyclists as scum of the road, and that the 'proper' action is to defend yourself by crashing into them. It's very juvenile.

    This CollegeHumor vid, right context and in fact, I'd say it sends the right message too.

    "Ok... you're 35, maybe 40. You've got a bit o spare cash in the bank and you want to buy yourself a big powerful sports bike cause you weren't allowed one when you were 17.

    ... The reality is a bit different... you're almost certainly going to crash. And so, someone perhaps you don't like very much, will end up with your eyes."

    You know what else is tasteless? Putting diesel in your bike, then watching your friends halfway disassemble your bike by the side of the road trying to figure out why it won't start.
