A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg, even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.

Sparring speed is a matter of simple physics:
The height of your flight is inversely proportionate to the mass of your ass.
Uh... helmets can cause death in an accident? Even if it's true, I'm sure it saves way more lives than it kills.
Same rules goes to some guy who tells you
"real guys don't wear Jock Straps"...Then you kick him in the groin.
In other words, they save lives. All you need to do is smack your head on something blunt or smack it in a strange way and you can easily be dead.Originally Posted by miraclejoe
Those Abate arguments sound nice until you see a GP rider cartwheeling smacking his head on the ground 2 or 3 times..... then they get up and try to get back on the bike.
Now just imagine what would happen if they weren't wearing helmets. They may cause a minor number of deaths, but they save more than they do harm. I'm all for choice though, IF:
- A.) They can't sue anyone after an accident (due to head injuries)
- B.) Can only do so after riding for 2 years.
The advantage for the rest of us is that it would lower insurance rates, since they wouldn't have to pay for motorcycle damages if they guy is dead. There are insurance companies in the US, that lobby for that, because there they have to cover hopital costs too.
Insurance companies do have to pay for motorcycle damages even if the rider is dead, his estate is entitled to a functioning vehicle if it was insured.Originally Posted by GTIMK4
I am under the impression that ICBC pays all accident related health costs here as well. If you show up in ER with your face bashed in or a bone sticking out in the wrong direction, one of the first questions you will be asked is "Is this the result of a vehicle accident?"
Well you learn something new every day. I guess they wouldn't care about it around here then....
People said the same thing about seatbelts until it became obvious that people wearing them survived, and people not wearing them got busted up and died.Originally Posted by biwwy2000
You can also find newpaper-like flyers which maintain that Elvis is still alive, the Mafia killed JFK, and crop circles are created by aliens who flatten corn for fun.
Just because some nut prints it doesn't make it so.
I always enjoy your logic, Skippy..
