The pharmacist I chatted with recommended an ER visit. Nah, cleaned it up as best I could, put tripple anti-biotic ointment on it and I was good to go.

Hurt like a mofo every time I took a shower though. Man, that crap really hurts!

Silvadene (Silver Sulfadiazine) :clap Won't cure stupid, not a time machine to go back and change what happened, but really good stuff. It's a topical ointment and a prescription is required. I think it's usually used for burns. I had a RN friend suggest it after I crashed a bicycle and it really helps on road rash.

The least he could do is put his own stupid ass at similar risk!

Not that I want to see it! :shiver

What do you think these guys say to their lady friends after these “accidents”?
How do they justify biffing it so bad on such easy turns in perfect conditions? I would love to be a fly the on ambulance wall

Thank you dmaxmike.
That photo and your statement speak volumes.


I don't want to go on a rant here but for cry sssake, isn't a motorcycle the one object where you master (and even flaunt) control?
Or perhaps this guy was "stunting" and lost it. <yeah right=""><yeah right=""> Yeah right.

So I ask you; how can a rider be a "tough-guy" and incompetent at the same time?
The phenomena is all too common and rather aggravating.
</yeah></yeah>I guess it's cause self-invented "tough guys" aggravate the shit out of me. :puke2
<yeah right=""><yeah right="">
Good post mike. BTW, the lack of gloves on the pillion shows some great judgment too.

They make shit up. I was on a ride with a douche that owns a HD. We rode like 6 hrs. This day he was on a honda. Nothing wrong with it, was fine all day. Then he runs wide at like 40 mph on a very, very gentle turn. Ends up in a dude's front yard. Kept it up, came back on the road (he was leading at this point - HIS PACE).

We stop, and we are like WTF? He goes on and on about how "She wouldn't turn" and "had to fight the forks, need to get them rebuilt" and that bullshit.

Bottom line is he wouldn't lean the fucking bike. HD riders are FOR THE MOST PART showing themselves to be skill-less douchebags. Seen it in person too many times. I know guys that ride HDs, and they are proficient riders... they are the expection....

YMMV

on any 3 wheelers that car not is not a bike and side car you need a car test to drive them

Most places here you can take your cycle test on a Can-Am now.
I don't think one would negotiate the test course for WV.
Not sure they turn that tight,.:D

those can am can be drving in the uk on a full car test only and you dont even heed a helmet.
.

in the uk if you do you test on a bike you can ride any bike or a bike and side car ect
if you do your test on a bike and sidecar you cant ride a bike on its own

Most? I don't know of any. You don't need a cycle endorsement to ride/drive one so it wouldn't make sense to allow someone to test for their cycle endorsement on one. They're basically a convertible with an odd seating position and missing a back wheel.
