Huh? Do I smell a contradiction around here?

Wait a minute...according to this study, you are less likely to be killed if drunk them is you had no alcohol?
"In 2010, 29 percent of fatally injured riders had a blood alcohol concentration at or above the legal limit of .08, the highest of all motorists."

so...71 % of those who died had less then .08%....which appears to show it is better to be hammer then straight.

I am going to have to rethink this who non drunk driving thing...

Looks like you'd better re-think this whole typing while toasted thing.

Nice find, Shogs.
"Backing it in" par excellance. Nearly had that perfected. If the road shoulder had been a little smoother, he mighta come to an upright standstill. And the clip would have made the "Awesome" thread. O'course, iffn he had continued to leave the wheel spin-up, he mighta burned a donut out of the shoulder and continued on his merry way with none the worse for wear? I know that when it is going really bad for me that I am just looking to save my hide and not trying for an immaculate 'save'. But to get so close to an immaculate save and miss it? That really hurts. That rider will have a lifetime of 'woulda-shoulda" thoughts watching this clip. I know that iffn it was me, I would. I can really feel it for this rider.
