    Riders = organ donors?

    So I got my new combined class 5 & 6 license in the mail yesterday. You know what else was in the envelope? An application form to become an organ donor.
    At first I was pretty pissed, it looked to me as if ICBC considers every motorcyclist as a potential organ donor.
    Then, after thinking about it for a while, I wasn't so mad any more, and I am seriously thinking about registering.
    What do you guys think? Anyone a registered donor? What were your motives when you signed up?

    lol....as I was about to type this, a rider goes by (on kingsway) at around 100 kph....the irony

    There is not a whole lot I can worry about it once I die...if I can save someone else, consider it re-use of my healthy body part!

    I'm a donor. My parents always had me as one. I don't see why not, won't bother me, I'll be dead anyway. If I can give someone the gift of life again, why the hell not!

    I got the same thing as well when I got my new licence. Is that something they usually hand out to us riders?

    I ride; therefore I am.

    Why not recycle our body parts, we won't need them when we're dead! I think they probably give that info. out to all the new licencees, since they changed the organ donor sign-up method.

    You are much more likely to need an organ than to donate one....food for thought....it's a fact.

    Why not?

    the sticker doesn't work anymore, damn i need to fill out the form. Offering to save someone elses life isn't giving in to the fact that you're going to die young..give you're head a shake. Are you really going to use your organs?? Think about what it'll mean to the person's life you'll save, the impact that you can make after you die will rival anything you've done when you were alive.

    Leave my face so my relatives have something to look at, but if I'm dead, they can do whatever they want to me
    anyone wanna lend me a bike ?

    I am an organ donor...as said above, who needs their organs when they're dead. If I can save someone else's life, I'm all for it.

    If they can find any worth harvesting they’re welcome to them… But copious amounts of alcohol and treating my body like an amusement park for years may make it challenging.

    Me thinks you can sign away your organs right here http://www.transplant.bc.ca/ (seems to be down right now).

    I think everyone should become an organ donor. What are you going to do with 'em once you're dead?

    hey there's a real shortage of organ donors so their just trying to get everyone to join in on the program. Donors are old and young they don't care.

    What if you're the one that NEEDs the kidney or you will die?
