    whoops. thx.

    actually the first one i must have put in there b/c i had gotten a lot of hearsay that he was wheeliing. yoko(max's sister) is in a giant circle of friends. I personally dont know her well. I'll take it out though as it doesnt appear to be fact.

    I think the second one still qualifies. he was wheeliing. it could easily have been a factor.

    Great job!
    its one thing to post about downed riders etc.
    I say this is a possitive step to improve rider awareness and safety out there. Way toi be proactive! I hope we can all learn from this

    not really the most fitting spot for an introduction as not many people will see your post here. try making a new thread in the general sportbike chat area or open forum, and say a little something about yourself. ie. riding career, riding style, plans for courses, etc. and try using the search function before asking questions as people around here tend to be a little pissy.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Unfortunately, with the popularity of the sport increasing on a yearly basis, more and more people are entering it without the true understanding of what personal responsibility is involved with riding a motorcycle or what a motorcyclist is.
    First things and last things, no one wants to get into and accident! (an unforeseen and unplanned event or circumstance). Well if you ride with the above definition, please do not throw a leg over a seat and go riding. All motorcycle accidents are actually an incident - (an action likely to lead to grave consequences) - this may be (will be) argued but if you truly understand what has been said, then you have just greatly increased your life expectancy on a Motorcycle.
    If a mistake has been made by someone else that has infringed on your well being, learn from it and look for the same or similar circumstance next time and take the appropriate action to protect yourself. Again, if someone cuts you off, yes you can be mad and finger him or what have you! But the reality is he is in a vehicle and you are on a motorcycle. You lose! Make the decision for your foes. Don't let them control the situation if at all possible. And most times you have the choices to make or allow this this to happen. If you are a new Motorcyclist (or rider as you are truly just along for the ride if a newbie) learn everything you can from every moment of every ride. If you ride like this, you will be mentally tired after an hour ride from information overload.
    For seasoned motorcyclist, if you think you know it all, then its time to quit. Extreme statement, but the truth. Be complacent and it will bite you fast and hard.
    Listen to your sixth sense. Many a time I got ready for a ride and cancelled because SOMETHING just did not feel right. I was a little tired, I did not like the looks of the clouds, funny feeling in the back of my mind. Planned trip too long, whatever, if it feel wrong, there is a reason. (may be lame but...)
    When riding a motorcycle you truly have to be 100%. If not, the consequences can truly be extreme.
    I am not preaching. This is years of experiences of incidents that I have boiled down into a few paragraphs that have lots of pain, sweat, and sadly tears in them.
    We all die way too soon as it is, why make it a short journey when truly we are just trying to take the long way home - safely!
