Yep.

There's also some horse heads and Guy Fawkes masks in this series...

Not a fail, per se, but what is that piece of metal duct taped to his forks in front of the headlight? Is it to support the bag on his handlebars?

I know of a rider a few friends removed who slipped off his bike in his driveway before he even put his helmet on-- and ended up with severe brain injuries. His life, and the lives of his family, was ruined before he even started the bike.

Obviously, there's a risk/benefit calculus to be made; people slip and fall all the time simply walking around, it's not like we're putting on helmets just to climb the stairs or take out the trash.

But riding is riskier than walking, and the consequences of falling off a speeding bike (let alone hitting something) are nothing to sneeze at.

Bottom line: bones heal, brains don't, please plan accordingly.

Disclaimer: I'm too libertarian to be a fan of helmet laws, but I reserve my own right to inform people that it's unwise to put themselves (and more importantly, their loved ones, who don't always get the vote they deserve) at such serious risk when it's a risk so easily, easily mitigated.

Now, can we have some frakkin' bike pictures already? It's got to be warm enough to ride for those FFs in Tennessee, no?

First glance, I thought that looked like Jesse James. The motorcycle guy. Not the outlaw.

Batman's passenger does not look like Batgirl, or Catwoman. Could it be the Joker's sister, maybe?

I think she is Raggedy Ann. Perhaps he likes them to dress up and role play.

Who doesn't? I mean, I have perfected the role of being interested in what my girlfriend has to say.

Berry Oakley, original bassist for the Allman Brothers

From Wikipedia: "On November 11, 1972, Oakley was involved in a motorcycle accident in Macon, Georgia, just three blocks from where Duane Allman had his fatal motorcycle accident the year before. Oakley was driving around a sharp right bend of the road on Napier Avenue at Inverness when he crossed the line and collided at an angle with a city bus making the bend from the opposite direction. After striking the front and then the back of the bus, Oakley was thrown from his bike, just as Allman had been, and struck his head. Oakley said he was okay after the accident, declined medical treatment, and caught a ride home. Three hours later, he was rushed to the hospital, delirious and in pain, and died of cerebral swelling caused by a fractured skull. Attending doctors stated that even if Oakley had gone straight to the hospital from the scene of the accident, he could not have been saved."

The list goes on and on.
