Wow. Just when I think I understand something here logic and reason and decency creeps in. I really struggle with all that and then have to remind myself what thread I am in and then sigh with relief. I still will slip up and offer some reasonable insights from time to time. Asking forgiveness in advance for those slip ups

More fails than I need to count.

Love the right foot placement.

I did my six years with Uncle Sam.
Want me to show you some real pictures?

I thought his name was Flounder.

Yeah, fine, maybe he couldn't have helped them, but he certainly could have showed a little respect to their pain and suffering.
Get a grip. Half the guys riding the Dragon are fully aware of the photogs. After the ride they're huddled around the nearest wifi laptop checking to see if Killboy has posted their pics yet.

My riding buddy couldn't work a frikkin' camera and 20 years later, I'm still pissed about the pics he missed when I was crashing.

If I'm still breathing, you better be takin' pics; they're going to last a lot longer than my pain.

I was pissed my camera was off when I lowsided at ~50mph. Log rolled instead of sliding, would have made some interesting footing

No, it's not against the law, but it's pretty hard on common decency. It is against the law for police to release crime scene photos.

Flip it around, someone could have died in that accident. 1500lbs of motorcycle sliding around can do some damage.

So, it's you, you are hurt, maybe dead (broken ribs can do a lot of internal damage). And your pictures end up on the internet because some unscrupulous photog thinks they entertaining. And your kids, or your widow, or your parents see it. Welcome to the internet.
Against the law, yet somehow they are all over the place. Crime scene, autopsy, you name it.

I'll take "Unenforceable Laws" for $300, Alex!

Are you related to a guy named Bob Mielke by any chance?

You think plenty of dads haven't ran across photos of their daughters in compromising positions?

Welcome to the internet.

So I'm at a go-kart track in Marshalltown, IA helping my buddy out.

I'm taking pics for him while he's out thrashing his YSR.

Last race of the day, and he's out front!!!!!!

Runs wide coming out of the corner, but keeps it up. Only now his tires have mud on them. And he goes down. In the front of the pack.

Horrified, I watch as he gets run over.

He is in the hospital for awhile with a broken sacrum and a big gash in his shoulder.

When he comes to, first thing he asks is if I got any pics of him going down. I said, "Hell no!"

He proceeded to chew me out pretty good.

Either of us? You're gonna need to dial back the meds for a minute. How many fingers am I holding up?

I wish there was someone to snap photos of my accident, I really wish there was this play by play blow by blow that's represented in this harley head on wreck. Sadly, I had to "lay her down" out in the boonies miles away from any corner photogs. I had to take my own photos.

I have no interest in looking at someone's dead gore spread across the road, but these folks came out and posted the photos of their own wreck. Can you believe the entertainment they're getting out of their own pain and suffering?

How could the photog have shown respect to their pain and suffering? Shut the camera off half a second sooner? The main reason these folks are on the Dragon in the first place is because of how popular it is, due in large part to the photographers set up on the road. You head to the "Dragon" chances are you know what you're getting into. Photographers, Lane Crossers, Semi's and all.

Completely agree. That's why I often wear a helmetcam and have it on more than I'm willing to edit.
