This is about the third pic in the last two weeks where commentators here jumped on their high horses and judged an entire scenario from one picture and were rebuffed when the people in the picture came here to offer the full story.

It provides a good lesson that a picture can tell a thousand words, just don't trust the accuracy of those words.

it also provides another good lesson- one that some people may NEVER learn no matter what- namely,
STFU and get your mouthy judgmental ass down off your high horse. anyone who wasn't there has NO business even trying to

A: decipher what happened
B: tell someone who WAS there what they SHOULD have done

all you fuckin "armchair experts" oughta remember
it is far better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

^^^^^ this ^^^^^

I've given up on group rides after seeing too many near misses made by fools with a throttle in one hand and their dick in the other. No manners, no roadcraft, and no commonsense

I can't believe anyone would get that much spittle on their keyboard over such minor nonsense.

Show me one quote from this thread from someone who was at the accident scene.....I didn't see any.

You are quick to judge with your dumbass verbal attack but the truth is you don't know what the hell you are talking about so you should heed your own words.

I'll tell ya one thing though, you certainly live up to your user title...

How'd you get two pix of Gold Wings and then think immediately of trucks on the Dragon?

The GWs appear to be ridden competently. The truck, not so much.

Seems to me the BMW is on the wrong lane too...

as for the two goldwings, well the riders are counterleaning, so there goes the competence down the drain.

Those GoldWing pictures remind me of a wonderful image in a strip ín the "Motomania" comic series by German cartoonist Holger Aue, I wish I could find it online somewhere...

the strip was about a guy admiring his friend´s brand new Gold Wing and being allowed to go for a short ride after being warned about the limited lean angle.

When he returns he says sth like yes, you were right about the lean angle, but it got better after a while...

and then you see the bike, with the fairing, exhaust, pegs and panniers completely ground away, laid open and the edges still glowing red, like one of those cutaway demonstration models you sometimes see...
