And if someone had thrown up a news link..... in a snarky pictures thread on the interwebbernet..... about that happening to you..... I might've checked it out.... possibly even commented on it..... audience participation and all that jazz..... you know.
Touche!

Na. If they don't bother me then the ones that it does bother shouldn't be on the road.

What is an eye doctor going to do? Just because the Commonwealth of VA recommends it doesn't necessarily make it(and most likely isn't) a good idea.
Read the link "I" posted, not a law, a suggestion. I said "endorsed", not "enforced".
The real dick move was not reading and comprehending what was posted before going off on a stupid rant. Higher moral ground. Pot, meet Kettle.

Just sayin...

Just as a stopped clock is right twice a day the Donk-siders are right about two things.
1. They get longer tire life.
2. Um... ah... Now what was that other thing... ?

Dark forested roads? Sounds like your riding with Dorothy, the tin man, the scare crow and the cowardly lion. Maybe you ARE riding in OZ.

Actually I was greatly disappointed to realize there were cretins in Australia too. I thought the US had that market cornered, but you shattered that illusion.

There's nothing for it but to take your advice and go for a ride. I'll do so in the morning, though it looks to be a bit snowy.

OK everyone. I'm headed for Deal"s Gap. I'm going to ride through, way over the speed limit, using both lanes, with my high beams on. Oh yeah, I'll have cars tires on my bike and a really loud exhaust. I'll be wearing ass less chaps, fingerless gloves, and a beanie helmet. Did I forget anything???

Oh yes of course I will be hanging off and dragging my knees.

That should cover everything.

Tell Killboy to have his camera ready. We need some more pics.

Don't forget ABS and a Headlight modulator. Also do it without countersteering because I've heard there are plenty of other ways to turn a bike. While you're at it, make sure to stand up so you lower your center of gravity.

You are using Amsoil in your bike, right?
