Tazed and confused.
I define Hell as having to ride back and forth from Blaine to Tijuana on I - 5 in perpetuity.
Wow, I was wondering how likely that was to happen considering I was ridingtoday. Yikes.

If I die on Phillip Island, so what! I'm already in Heaven! WOOHOOO!!!
The single minded thought process of the majority of bc voters(ie lower mainlanders) have already decided that any speed kills.
I hope your summer is just like Sexy Mini Dresses filled with surprises.

I think we all know his name was Marty McFly.
Now... bring me that horizon.
What are the chances?...obviously better than the lottery.
"direct hit" from lightning strike!
This is a great stats question. I've always wondered if those "1 in 10,000 chances" statements included the people that are...say...enjoying a sunny day in Cancun on the beach, or maybe exploring a cave 50' under the surface, or climbing Kilimanjaro above the cloud cover. They are weighing down the odds of getting hit. And maybe it includes those people driving around a golf course in Alabama during a thunderstorm with a 50' metal pole sticking up of their golf bag. Those people are bringing up the odds of getting hit.
Therefore, maybe if you can see the storm, or are within...say....5 miles of it, your chances might no longer be 1 in 10,000 but maybe 1 in 1000, or 1 in 200. I've probably watched 200 storms in my life - maybe I'm due to be hit.

I guess the tires insulated him from the lightning going to ground, which saved his life. Lucky guy, hope he bought a lottery ticket!
Back in BC, yay!!!

Having heard stories of the rider over the years, I suspect karma in action.
One person said today very tongue in cheek, "It couldn't happen to a nicer guy."
