I've never once been burned on any of my OWN rides (probably because I have no need to go near a hot exhaust, so I give it a wide berth-- plus I always wear pants too).

Such a dumbass I am.

That is how I felt the first time I took my bike on the interstate and rode at 60 MPH back when I was learning to ride.

Maybe this was this guys first time on a bike. LOL

A very good reminder to always ride your own ride and within your own limits because it's your life on the line.

Don't forget the crossing of the double yellow that may force people off the road or into the hillside where there was tehcnically no other vehicle involved in the wreck...

Dead men tell no tales. Although I will admit, the vast number of crashes I've seen on the hill were single vehicle, pilot induced.
