Old Squids... sat on a Parkbench like Bookends...



Either that, or "a repented Harley rider".

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.
